It is well known that Apple generally adds products to the obsolete product list five years after they stop being sold and no longer provides repair services. However, the Apple Store and Apple Authorized Service Providers can provide repair services for up to two years after a device is categorized as obsolete. Products that are more than seven years from the date they were stopped manufactured will be added to Apple's obsolete products list. Apple recently announced two models that will be phased out, the iPhone 5c and the iPad mini 3. According to Apple's official, Apple will classify the iPhone 5c and the iPad mini 3 as obsolete products from the next month November 1st 2022, which means that all repairs and maintenance service will be stopped. The iPhone 5c is also one of Apple's most iconic models, which was released on September 11, 2013, and is now nine years old. The iPhone 5c is not Apple's best-selling model, but it certainly left a deep impression on most iPhone users. The iPhone 5c was launched at the same time as the iPhone 5s, when the iPhone 5s was called "the world's smartest phone" and the iPhone 5c was called "the most colorful iPhone to date". Because they were listed together, they will also be compared together, but the two products are positioned differently, and their configurations are also different. The iPhone 5s also looks more advanced than the iPhone 5c. iPhone 5s has an aluminum case, while the iPhone 5c's case is made of a steel reinforced frame and a hard film polycarbonate material. The focus of the iPhone 5c is more on colorful colors, and it is the beginning of colorful iPhones. There are blue, green, pink, yellow and white, although it sounds a bit fancy, but when it was first launched, I believe these color matching also attracted a lot of young people. In November 2020, Apple announced that the iPhone 5c, the first color phone, was being made obsolete. After that, only some limited repair services were provided. Until now, the iPhone 5c is also really to the time of retirement, after all, after so many years, it is reasonable to be obsolete. In addition to the iPhone 5c, the iPad Mini 3 will also be officially phased out next month. iPad Mini 3 was released on October 16, 2014. Compared to the latest iPad Mini 6, the iPad Mini 3 was only 7.9 inches, for the tablet, this size is relatively small. Other configurations include Touch ID fingerprint recognition, a 5-megapixel iSight camera with 1080P HD recording and support for Apple Pay. In addition to the iPhone 5c, the previous iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6 Plus are also listed as obsolete products in the list. It is possible that in a few years, they will be officially retired, and by then there will be more people who will lament it. Especially the iPhone 6, 6s and 6 Plus, although they have become obsolete, there are still a lot of people still using them.
