Apple Declares the iPhone 6 Plus “Vintage”

If you’re still rocking an iPhone 6 Plus, you officially have a vintage iPhone, as reported by Macworld. Once Apple declares a product to be “vintage,” Apple and Apple-authorized repair shops may no longer be able to obtain parts for it, except in places like France with stronger consumer protection laws.
