Original Apple iPhone will be labelled ‘obsolete” on June 11th

Steve Jobs officially introduced the iPhone at Macworld on January 9th, 2007. This ‘revolutionary’ smartphone came with a 3.5-inch touchscreen display (320 x 480), 2MP camera, iOS, and weighed in at 135 grams. Since this date we’ve seen the device progress and become thinner, more powerful and come with a larger screen. At the upcoming WWDC 2013 Apple will finally show off the new version of iOS – which apparently has a ‘flat’ design.

News about the original iPhone has surfaced. It’s days are officially numbered. According to an internal document posted on 9to5Mac reveals that on June 11th the original iPhone will be classified as “obsolete” and will no longer be eligible for service at Apple retail stores. Not too much of a shocker considering the device is almost 7 years old. With that said, Apple notes that an obsolete product is one that was “discontinued more than seven years ago. Apple has discontinued all hardware service for obsolete products with no exceptions. Service providers cannot order parts for obsolete products.”

The end of an era near. The original Apple iPhone is headed to the museum.
