Apple will phase out iPhone 6 Plus globally at the end of this month

Elephone S8 over an iPhone 6 Plus- Or is it?

In an internal memo, Apple will add the iPhone 6 Plus to its list of retro products on December 31. This means that more than five years have passed since Apple stopped distributing and selling the device. However, Apple Store and Apple authorized service providers will continue to provide repair services for retro products for up to 7 years. Of course, this will be subject to the availability of parts.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, launched in September 2014, are the two most popular smartphones ever sold by Apple. These two devices have “larger” 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays that are extremely popular. These devices have been driving the small screen smartphone market for years.

Although the iPhone 6 Plus was discontinued in 2016, the smaller iPhone 6 was still available for purchase through specific retailers in some regions until at least 2018. In fact, many people still use this product as of today thus it will take longer to become a retro product. In addition to the milestone increase in screen size, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the first devices to support Apple Pay. Other main features include the A8 chip as well as a significantly better camera.

In terms of software, with the release of iOS 13 a few years ago, Apple has given up support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but it is still known as the first generation of “magic machines”, which is full of memories for many users.
