And those halted for more than seven years are defined as “Obsolete Product”. For these products, Apple has stop providing any hardware service and will not offer any assembly part of these obsolete products.
That means that if you are still using iPhone4, you would not get any service about hardware including maintaining from Apple retail locations or its official partners. However, there may be an exception in some countries or regions with harsh laws where Apple rules are not governed. For example, Turkey and California do not apply to Apple rules currently.
