Seven years after its release, the iPhone 6 Plus appeared on Apple’s list of obsolete products this week. Also appearing are Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad 4 and a Mac Mini that was released in late 2012.

Apple will discontinue all hardware services for obsolete products, with only Mac laptops eligible for an additional battery repair period. Meanwhile, service providers cannot order parts for obsolete products. In fact, Apple stopped system updates for the iPhone 6 Plus in 2019.

Apple states that products that have been out of sale for more than 5 years but less than 7 years will be called retro products, and products that have been out of sale for more than 7 years will be called obsolete.

While Apple will stop providing hardware services for certain obsolete products, these devices will still be supported by ongoing system updates and repair support from a network of more than 5,000 Apple Certified Repair Locations.
