Apple has officially designated its original Apple Watch as obsolete. This decision coincides with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 9, and marks the first instance where the 38mm and 42mm first-generation Apple Watch models have been included in the obsolete category.
By the end of the month, several Apple devices are set to join the official vintage products list. Vintage products have been off the market for at least five years but no more than seven, and it may be difficult to receive repairs due to parts availability. Products seven years or older are considered obsolete, which means they are no longer serviced by Apple or any Apple Authorized Service Providers.
