Apple presented the colourful iPhone 5c smartphone in September 2013. Almost two years later, in September 2015, the plastic iPhone disappeared from Apple’s product portfolio. And now it seems the the model will be joining Apple’s vintage list.

The timing is plausible: Apple declares its products as vintage five years after they ceased selling them. The iPhone 5c has not been sold by Apple for five years.

Turning vintage doesn’t mean that the iPhone 5c will become obsolete. Apple will still repair (for a price) vintage products when they are five years oldas long as the replacement parts are available. Other vintage products include the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S models as well as the iPhone 5.

The iPhone 5c vintage status (which will kick in at the end of the month) will last for two more years. Seven years after the iPhone 5c was last sold it will become obsolete, at which point Apple won’t be required to provide parts to fix it.

The iPhone 5c was Apple’s first attempt to establish a mid-range iPhone. It wasn’t considered a huge success at the time, perhaps because the plastic iPhone was still quite expensive despite being underpowered: at launch the prices were £429 for 8GB, £469 for 16GB, and £549 for 32GB.

Apple later introduced the iPhone SE (2016) and the iPhone SE (2020) – these iPhones saw more success. The current iPhone SE costs £419 for 64GB, £469 for 128GB, and £569 for 256GB, and offers the same processor as the iPhone 11 Series.
