Now the original iPhone SE joins the ranks of the original iPhone on the customer service list for iPhone and old products. The iPhone SE was launched in March 2016, which means it has been more than seven years since its launch. While the MacRumors website indicates that the phone was sold until September 2018, that is, more than 5 years ago since it was possible to obtain one from a store, which qualifies it to be classified in the list of old iPhones. After seven years, the products are labeled as obsolete.
So, what does the new classification mean? If you are currently using an iPhone SE, your device is no longer guaranteed to be eligible for repairs through Apple or Apple Authorized Repair Providers, simply because they will not hold more parts for these repairs. However, Apple will repair it if it has the necessary part available.
In addition to the original iPhone SE, Apple also added the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro to its list of legacy products today, along with the Mickey Solo3 wireless headphones. The Powerbeats 2 and Solo2 wireless headphones have also been added to the company’s list of products that are becoming obsolete, according to MacRumors.
If you are a fan of the iPhone SE series that Apple directs to the audience looking for low-cost phones, the 2022 version is still available for sale, starting at $429.
