No Repairs, No Updates for This iPhone and iPad Starting Next Month, Here’s Why


Apple usually classifies its discontinued products into two categories – ‘vintage’ and ‘obsolete’. Recently, it has marked Iphone 6 is ‘classic’ and now it’s time for another iPhone to join the ‘obsolete’ list. According to a memo obtained by MacRumors, Apple will make Iphone 5c obsolete next month.
According to the report, the memo was sent to authorized service providers and based on that, the iPhone 5C and iPad The third generation mini will be marked as ‘obsolete’ starting November 1st, for those unaware, Apple made the ‘classic’ iPhone 5C in October 2020, which means the possibility of repair and parts for the product has been limited. Once it becomes obsolete, the company will discontinue all of its services and repairs, according to the memo sent by the company. The same applies to the third-generation iPad mini.

The Apple iPhone 5C was launched in 2013 alongside the iPhone 5S as an affordable iPhone with a plastic back and vibrant and powerful color options. The smartphone is launched in Blue, Green, Pink, White and Yellow colors. Long before the iPhone SE arrived, the iPhone 5C was the first iPhone from Apple to launch as an affordable device aimed at the mass market and budget-conscious consumers.
However, Apple usually calls a product a classic after five years and between seven years of discontinuing the product. When a product has been out of production for more than seven years, it will be marked as obsolete, ending all support from the company, including repairs from third-party service providers.
