Apple ends all repairs and services on iPhone 5c
On November 1, Apple will mark the “iPhone 5c” as an old product, and terminate all repairs and services, according to a memo sent yesterday to authorized service providers.
Apple also said in the memo, which obtained a copy of the MacBooks, that it will mark the third-generation iPad mini with Wi-Fi and TD-LTE as obsolete on the same day.

The iPhone 5c was coined as the first device to be offered in a series of bright colors, including blue, green, pink, yellow and white, in a plastic design.
The iPhone 5c also marks the first time Apple has released a low-end iPhone model aimed at customers who can’t afford to pay the hefty price tag, with pricing for the 16GB model starting at $99 on a two-year contract in the US.
