Apple Now Considers iPhone X ‘Vintage’

Apple Now Considers iPhone X 'Vintage'
Jul 3 2024 Share

Apple has added several of its devices, including the iPhone X, first-generation HomePod smart speaker, and first-generation AirPods, to its list of “vintage” products. This list includes devices no longer supported by Apple, typically five to seven years after they were last sold.

As noted by MacRumors, while repairs are still available for these products at Apple Stores and authorized service providers, support will end entirely after seven years, rendering them obsolete.

The iPhone X, launched in November 2017, marked the 10th anniversary of the iPhone with significant changes like reduced bezels, the removal of the Home button, and the introduction of FaceID. Powered by the A11 chipset, it also introduced Animojis.

Released in February 2018, the first-generation HomePod was designed to integrate with Apple Music and AirPlay. Despite its impressive sound quality, it struggled with smart home tasks, limiting its longevity.

Successors like the HomePod 2 and HomePod Mini addressed some of these issues.

The original AirPods, launched in December 2016, are considered the first true wireless earbuds and marked the end of the headphone jack on iPhones. Despite being supplanted by newer versions, their design has been influential, even inspiring competitors like Samsung.

Birkirkara Still Without Mayor As Council Disagrees

Following the recent local council elections, Birkirkara is still without a mayor after disagreements on who to elect in the head seat.

This comes after independent candidate Kaylocke Buhagiar was elected after having left the Labour Party.

Birkirkara elected 6 Labour candidates and 6 PN candidates – with Yana Borg Debono Grech, Alfred Attard, Gilmour Borg, Rosette Cassar, Karl Cutajar and Stefano Sicari representing the former and Desirei Grech, Maurizio Gauci, Antoine Attard, Jade England, Luke Vella and Marie Claire Zammit Bonello representing the latter.

Yana Borg Debono Grech was the most popular PL candidate in the locality with 1,805 votes, whereas Desirei Grech had the most votes for the PN in Birkirkara at 1,802.

In two statements, PN’s Desirei Grech highlighted how the Nationalists gained the majority of votes in the locality, saying that ‘common sense should win out and the will of the majority should be respected.’

However, she later explained that there was no agreement reached and that a meeting is planned for next week. PL’s top candidate too, Yana Debono Grech, wrote how each member of each party voted for their respective mayor candidate.

The independent candidate, Kaylocke, voted against both parties, despite having been nominated as vice-mayor by the PL.

What do you make of this?
