Newest Firmware - FAP-221C

The newest firmware version that I can find for the FAP-221C is 6.0.6, build 0044. Is this the last firmware version that will be available for this model AP?
 
I can find FAP-221C referenced in the release information for 6.0 but not 6.2 or 6.4.
 
I find that this AP Product support expires 14Oct2023, but I don't see the what the last firmware version is or will be. Is this documented?

FWF30E, FG40F, FG50E, FWF50E, FG60D, FWF60D, FG60E, FG60F, FG80E, FG100D
FortiOS 5.2, 5.4, 5.6, 6.0, 6.2, and 6.4
FortiSwitch FS-224E-POE, FS-124E-POE
FAP-221E, FAP-224E, FAP-221C

    Now the time has come. 221C did not work anymore on FortiOS7. Very bad. Have here 5 AP's, all Offline.

    By default, when upgrading to FortiOS 7.0, the 221C's don't work with Fortigate since strong cryptographic ciphers are enforced (had the same problem myself), and the "C" series ("legacy") don't support these ciphers. (It is also in the release notes) 
     
    In order to get the older AP's to work with a workaround, you need to configure the following: 
     
    config system global
    set ssl-static-key-ciphers enable
    set strong-crypto disable
    end
     
    After changing these setting you should see that the FAP's are connecting to the Fortigate once again.

    Hello @buusmeister, 
     
    and very thanks for your reply. Your information explains a lot, of course. And yes, with this the AP's work normally again.
