The tech giant regularly brings out newer models – and the advances in tech mean old ones stop working for a myriad of reasons. Among these reasons is security.
The models are between five and seven years old, Apple has confirmed in its message to its customers. The full list includes iPhone 4 (8GB) and the iPhone 4S, as well as the iPhone 5 and also the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 6 Plus to boot.
Apple advised: “Owners of iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac or Apple TV products may obtain a service and parts from Apple service providers, including Apple Retail Stores and Independent Repair Providers, for a minimum of 5 years from when Apple last distributed the product for sale.
“Service and parts may be obtained for longer, as required by law, or for up to 7 years, subject to parts availability.”
