Snippet: Original iPhone Headed to Official Obsolescence ☇

Roughly six years after its public launch, the original iPhone is about to become obsolete—at least in Apple’s eyes. Apple reportedly sent out internal documentation to its support partners, which was then passed on to 9to5Mac, detailing which of its products would no longer be considered current or recent devices as of June 11, 2013. The list doesn’t just include the original iPhone, though: it also includes a number of older iMacs, MacBook Pros, Xserves, and PowerBooks.

Although I recently had a bit of fun with an original iPhone, this retirement makes sense, and is completely inline with Apple’s previous policies.
