Apple released its first-gen iPhone nearly 6 years ago. Now Apple is going to label it as ‘Vintage’. It means the product is very old and Apple is going to stop hardware and software support for first-gen iPhone. From June 11, you won’t be able to repair your iPhone (if first-gen) in store unless you are in California. This is because California law requires service of upto 7 years. There will be no Software Updates by Apple.
The first iPhone went on sale in June 2007. If Apple’s policy gets unchanged, iPhone 3G will lose support in 2014, 3GS in 2015 and 4 in 2016.
iPhone 5 is latest till the date of writing and there are some rumors of iPhone 5S.
