Do Apple keep making old versions even when new ones are out?

Several retailers are still selling iPhone 6s, even though they are up to ten.

The Apple UK website is currently offering the iPhone Xr, the iPhone Xs, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7 available for direct purchase, with the iPhone 6 shown as 'available at authorised resellers'.
If Apple only sold the latest version, then it will cost everyone who want an iphone about £800.
Whereas a iphone 6s can still be bought for £299.
It would be a marketing disaster to only sell the latest model. Not everyone can afford the top of the range phone and not everyone wants the latest, biggest and fastest.

'er indoors wants a new iPhone but our budget is restricted.

I thought about getting her a 6 for Christmas, but worry it might not be available later in the year.
Have you thought about getting a refurbished one? My son bought me a refurbished iPhone 6 for Christmas and there’s nothing wrong with it, you can get different grades.

Bought an iPhone 6S Plus from Argos. mail order about 6 weeks ago
£350. very pleased with it.
Apple no longer produce the Iphone 6 .. some retailers still hold stock though. It seems some of the last ones had problems with the cameras.
May well be time to move on to a more up to date alternative, or possibly search for a good secondhand model.

'er indoors have a second hand refurbished one? My life wouldn't be worth living.

Hopkirk, how would she know?
I have had two Apple Iphones. 5 and 6. Both a crock of ***e.. Over priced and over rated. I will happily go back to Samsung. The battery endurance on Iphones is useless.

Baldric's, she would know.

I agree, Retro. For me I have budget Moto G phones which are brilliant. 'er indoors is not of the same mind.
