There is no support for millions of phones as the Apple iPhone 6-series is ‘vintage’ now

Apple iPhone 6-series is now ‘vintage’ – it simply means relegation to the growing list of products sold 5- or more years ago that are not responsible for repairs, parts, software upgrades or support and which is not a surprise anymore. For third-party PCs introduced back in 2019 because this is not bashing Apple – 5+ years is a very long time and maybe only compatible with Windows 10. But there are other consequences.

First, the old iPhone series is dropping the iOS update list each year. The iPhone 6 series and SE are stuck on iOS 13 while we are now up to iOS 15. These phones are the prime targets for cyberattacks. The next hack is the iPhone 7 series.

Second, the inclusion on the vintage list deletes any recycle value. Where the iPhone 6-series had some resale value, you might forget that now. And forget about the refurbished product too – series 6 that also sells these for $ 150-200 – tell them they are dreaming! There is no way the battery has more than a few hours of use. The generic replacement material for the DYI is approximately $ 50, and most retail stores charge $ 100.

Finally, the fixes became the subject of the availability of versions – Apple no longer stores inventory.

Apple’s vintage menu also includes the mainstream Mac, iPod, iPad, Beat and Watch.

At least Apple has the ultimate end of life.

There is a real storm brewing on the right to repeat and forced obsolesce. While placing a phone on a vintage or mainframe list does not stop working, it means that these are the first places for cyber attacks knowing that your security is only available to older versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and so on.

Our advice is that if you buy a second hand or have it repaired, look at the models for no more than three years. At least the battery will still perform better, software and firmware updates will also happen, and the remaining amount is for sale second hand.

And please read our advice – Do not buy a gray phone, especially a vintage one.
