According to an internal note, starting from December 31, 2021 it will add iPhone 6 Plus to its list of “vintage” products. This model, in fact, it came off the Apple list in 2016. Different fate for the 4.7-inch model, the iPhone 6, which remained available in several countries until 2018.

Apple calls “vintage” a device that has not been on the list for over five years and less than seven, but once this limit is exceeded it enters the list of so-called “obsolete”. Vintage products can still be officially repaired at Apple or other authorized centers, subject to parts availability.

For obsolete, however, there is no possibility of repairs at official centers but, in case, it is necessary to contact third-party assistance centers. Apple does, however, offer an extended repair service for some products in some countries where it is required by law.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were officially presented during an event at the Flint Center for Performing Arts of Cupertino on 9 September 2014 and were sold starting on 19 September. These iPhones were the first to come in two versions and the first to come up with a rounded edge design after several years of flat edges.

iPhone 6 Plus, we recall, was plagued by a problem with the touch interface, known as “Touch Disease”, which caused a degradation of performance announced by a flashing gray bar at the top of the display. In that case, Apple started a repair program.

In June 2015, with the presentation of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, only the 16GB and 64GB versions remained on the list, with a price reduction. On September 12, 2016 they both came out of the list but, in 2017, Apple made us return the iPhone 6 in the 32GB version. As for the software, Apple has already dropped support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with the release of iOS 13.
