Apple iPod touch (6th Gen) becomes ‘vintage’; iPhone 5S now obsolete

Apple has recently shuffled three devices onto its vintage and obsolete products list: a sixth-generation iPod touch, a 2015 21.5-inch iMac, and the iPhone 5S.

As first reported by MacRumors, the biggest name that gets the chop is the iPhone 5S. Launched in 2013 that introduced the Apple A7 chipset along with the revolutionary (at the time) Touch ID fingerprint sensor, the 5S is officially considered “obsolete” worldwide.

This essentially means Apple Stores and authorized service providers are no longer offering hardware repairs for the device.

Joining the 5S in the dustbin are the iPod touch (6th generation) and the late 2015 edition of the 21.5-inch iMac with a Retina 4K display. These products are now classified as “vintage,” meaning they’ve been out of circulation for over five years.

While Apple Stores and authorized service providers might still be able to breathe new life into these vintage devices, parts availability is a gamble — they can only offer repairs for up to two more years, and only if they have the necessary components on hand.

The sixth-generation iPod touch, released in 2015, was the second-to-last model in the once-ubiquitous music player line. Apple officially discontinued the iPod touch line entirely in 2022, marking the end of an era for portable MP3 players.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
