One of the most popular smartphones in Apple’s history, the iPhone 6, is now officially a “vintage” product.

The iPhone 6 is sure to be remembered by many Apple users as it was the company’s first smartphone with a significantly larger display than its predecessors. The phone was discontinued a few years ago, but it still receives security patches and technical support from Apple. This week, Apple added the iPhone 6 to its list of obsolete products.

According to statistics, the total sales of the iPhone 6 series has reached 230 million units. It is the most popular iPhone in China. Subsequently, the record was improved by the result of 250 million units of the iPhone 11 series.

According to Apple’s definition, a product is considered obsolete if it has been discontinued for more than 5 years. The company still provides parts and repair services for vintage products for 7 years after those products are no longer officially sold.

Interestingly, the larger iPhone 6 Plus became a vintage product much earlier. This is because Apple continued to sell the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 for longer in some regions after the iPhone 6 Plus was finally discontinued.

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were introduced in September 2014 with iOS 8. The devices were discontinued in 2019 with the release of iOS 13, which required an iPhone 6s or newer smartphone. Despite this, Apple is still releasing security patches for devices running iOS 12, including not only the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but also the iPhone 5s.

iPhone 6 features a Retina HD display, a single 8MP rear camera, and a 64-bit Apple A8 SoC with 1GB of RAM. The iPhone 6 Plus has similar hardware, but with a Full HD display and an optically stabilized rear camera (a first on an iPhone). They were also the first iPhones with NFC and Apple Pay.

Apple may sell 15 20 million iPhones less than planned in

Deliveries of top Apple smartphones in the quarter may be much lower than predicted.

Apple may sell 15-20 million iPhones less than planned in the quarter

According to well-known Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could be 15-20 million lower than Apple originally planned. It’s all about shutting down one of the iPhone factories due to the outbreak of COVID-19. In addition, there are continuing protests of workers, which also does not contribute to improving the situation with production.

Apple transferred some of the orders that Foxconn cannot fully fulfill to Pegatron and Luxshare, but we are talking about only 10%.

According to the results for the fourth quarter, Apple can ship 70-75 million devices instead of 80-85 million, which could have entered the market if it were not for the events that have occurred.

Of course, this will also affect revenue. According to Kuo’s forecast, Apple could earn 20-30% less for the quarter.

iPhone 14 design 4000 mAh and 35mm jack for 70

Introduced in mid-November, the LeTV Y1 Pro + smartphone attracted attention with its design, which clearly resembles the iPhone 14, as well as an incredibly low price.

LeEco today announced the availability of the LeEco Y1 Pro+, which is available in three configurations: 6/64 GB, 4/128 GB, and 4/256 GB, priced at $70, $83, and $111, respectively. This choice of memory seems strange, because at the time of the announcement, the younger version had 4/64 GB of memory. There may be a mistake on the poster.

When we talk about the similarity with the iPhone 14, we mean the repetition of the design of the screen with a bang, as well as the main camera with two image sensors, which are located diagonally in a single block in the upper left corner of the rear panel. In addition, the smartphone received the same metal frame around the perimeter of the case.

Covering 2.5D glass front and back, LeEco Y1 Pro+ is equipped with a 6.5-inch 1560*720 LCD screen, Unisoc Tiger T610 octa-core single-chip system without 5G support, built-in 4000mAh battery, and supports 10W charging .
