Eight years after the launch of the iPhone 6 in 2014, Apple decided to retire its old device to join its old devices list.
Apple gets rid of the iPhone 6
According to Apple, products become obsolete or obsolete when the company stops selling them for at least 5 and no more than 7 years.
Products declared obsolete can still be serviced by Apple and authorized repair centers if they have replacement parts available.
Apple classified the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as obsolete in February 2022 and now the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are facing the same fate.
When the iPhone 6s was launched, the company continued to sell the iPhone 6 at a low cost and then halted sales once the iPhone 7 was released in 2016.
The year of the iPhone 6 launch was the first of its kind as Apple introduced us to the larger model Plus with iOS 8. The iPhone also came with a new design with curved edges that replaced the flat edges of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5s.
The company also launched the NFC feature and Apple Pay service in conjunction with the announcement of the iPhone 6, through which users can pay online securely and quickly via iPhone devices.
