What Does “Vintage” Mean?

Devices that Apple stopped officially selling more than five but less than seven years ago are considered vintage. This status means that the company will continue to accept the gadget for repairs but will only carry it out if spare parts are available, notes NIX Solutions. We’ll keep you updated on any changes to this policy.

New Additions to the Vintage List

The iPhone X, HomePod smart speaker, and the first-generation AirPods headphones were added to the list of such “retirees.”

iPhone X: Introduced in 2017, it was a first for Apple in several ways: a frameless design without a Home button, Face ID, and an AMOLED screen.

HomePod: Announced at WWDC 2017, it marked Apple’s entry into the smart speaker market.

AirPods (1st Generation): Announced in September 2016 along with the iPhone 7, these wireless earbuds revolutionized how users interact with their audio devices.

Apple’s dedication to supporting these devices, even as they move to vintage status, highlights their commitment to customer satisfaction. We’ll keep you updated on any further additions to the vintage list or changes to the repair policy.
