One of the most popular smartphones in Apple’s history, the iPhone 6, is now officially a “vintage” product.

The iPhone 6 is sure to be remembered by many Apple users as it was the company’s first smartphone with a significantly larger display than its predecessors. The phone was discontinued a few years ago, but it still receives security patches and technical support from Apple. This week, Apple added the iPhone 6 to its list of obsolete products.

According to statistics, the total sales of the iPhone 6 series has reached 230 million units. It is the most popular iPhone in China. Subsequently, the record was improved by the result of 250 million units of the iPhone 11 series.

According to Apple’s definition, a product is considered obsolete if it has been discontinued for more than 5 years. The company still provides parts and repair services for vintage products for 7 years after those products are no longer officially sold.

Interestingly, the larger iPhone 6 Plus became a vintage product much earlier. This is because Apple continued to sell the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 for longer in some regions after the iPhone 6 Plus was finally discontinued.

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were introduced in September 2014 with iOS 8. The devices were discontinued in 2019 with the release of iOS 13, which required an iPhone 6s or newer smartphone. Despite this, Apple is still releasing security patches for devices running iOS 12, including not only the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but also the iPhone 5s.

iPhone 6 features a Retina HD display, a single 8MP rear camera, and a 64-bit Apple A8 SoC with 1GB of RAM. The iPhone 6 Plus has similar hardware, but with a Full HD display and an optically stabilized rear camera (a first on an iPhone). They were also the first iPhones with NFC and Apple Pay.
