Stop the production of old models becomes unprofitable for Apple – you need somewhere to take outdated components, and they are no longer available in the right quantities. However, the company will fulfill warranty obligations and will continue to repair or exchange the failed devices during their shelf life.
By the end of the year, Apple plans to sell the remaining smartphones in the warehouses in order to make room for newer mobile devices. It is also worth noting that stopping production may mean the cessation of software support for these models – it is likely that Apple will not upgrade iPhone SE, 6s and 6s to iOS 13 this year.

Despite the cessation of production, iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus are still popular models and are in demand both in Ukraine and around the world. It is also worth noting that the iPhone SE remains the only "classic" 4-inch Apple smartphone, which remains relevant and works on the latest version of iOS firmware.
