Apple's technology giant has said iPhone 5 as a discontinued product in the United States and overtaken in the rest of the world. In this way, the company interrupts support for this model, except in California, where there will be spare parts for another two years.
"IPhone 5 has been introduced into Apple's disrupted and outdated product list to spend more than five years since the smartphone was paralyzed", read on its support website in Japan.
Interrupted devices are those whose production has been discontinued in advance over a period of five to seven years, as in the case of iPhone 5, a mobile phone launched on the market in September 2012.
The company in Cupertino (California) indicates that service providers can not order parts of outdated equipment. In addition, it canceled "all hardware for outdated products without exception".
However, products purchased in California (United States), under state law, if they can be repaired seven years after the end of manufacture. Therefore, they will have two more years to go to Apple stores or contact Apple Care for iPad and iPhone.
According to Apple's policies, all devices that were manufactured seven years ago are considered obsolete around the world.
