According to an internal document acquired by MacRumors, Apple will add the iPhone 6 Plus to its historic products list on December 31, marking more than five years since Apple ceased selling the handset.
Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers will continue to fix historical equipment for up to seven years, depending to part availability.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which were released in September 2014, were two of the most successful smartphones ever sold by Apple, with the handsets sporting bigger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens that fans had long sought. While the iPhone 6 Plus was discontinued in 2016, the smaller iPhone 6 remained accessible through select stores in limited locations until at least 2018 and will not be considered a vintage product until much later.
