Apple’s devices and technology are continuously being improved, as every Apple consumer knows. The IT giant has now issued a warning that some models will no longer be sold and will no longer be repaired.

iPhone models as late as the iPhone 6 Plus are set to become obsolete, according to Apple. These are also known as ‘vintage iPhones’ and mean “Apple stopped distributing them for sale more than five and less than seven years ago”. The original iPhone and products all the way up to the iPhone 4s are now considered obsolete.
