iPhones are closed in these two categories
The American smartphone maker usually categorizes its smartphones into two categories. This includes a vintage and another obsolete. When the sale of a product is stopped by Apple, it is declared as vintage. Apple usually declares products that are 5 and 7 years old as vintage. The same when 7 years pass after the sale of an Apple product, then that product is declared obsolete. Hardware for vintage products are available for service. But the hardware of Obslite Apple products is barely available.
