Your old iPhone and iPad will become ‘junk’

Every year Apple brings new iPhone and iPad models in the market which are in high demand. Last year, the company launched the iPhone 15 series. Along with this, the iPhone 16 series will be launched in the market this year. Apple fans eagerly wait for new products from the company. However, Apple has made a big decision for some of its older iPhones and iPads, which may cause some disappointment.

Consumers disappointed with Apple’s decision

The American tech giant has added its best-selling iPhones, the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPad mini 4, to the old and obsolete list. This means that Apple will no longer provide any hardware support for these two phones. If a customer has both these products, it will be difficult to get them in case of defective parts.

Apple no longer assumes responsibility for products included in its obsolete or vintage list. By the company, these products are considered end of life. If users’ devices are accidentally damaged, they will not be able to get them repaired at an official Apple service center.

When was the iPhone 6 Plus launched?

The iPhone 6 Plus is among the company’s best-selling iPhones. This iPhone was launched by the company in September 2014. The company stopped the production of this iPhone 10 years ago when it was launched in 2016. Also, the software support for it was discontinued in the year 2019. The company had listed the iPhone 6 as obsolete in 2022 itself.

While iPad mini 4 was launched by Apple in the year 2015. It has been almost 9 years since this iPad was launched. However, the company has announced that it will be able to fix the tablet in the next two years, i.e. by 2026. After this the tablet will not be able to be repaired even by Apple’s official service center.
