Old Content - keep or delete?

I run a 10yr old eCommerce website. There are FAQs, articles, etc. that's a little outdated (it may still be useful for people who still own the older products). My question is, do I leave it on the website or delete it?

Another words, it's better for SEO to keep more content even though it's old or delete it?

Thanks

Good content keep, poor content delete.

Good content is unique, relevant and provides value to users.

Poor content is keyword stuffed, anemic and is nearly identical to content that is found on many other websites.

Age is not a primary consideration to me. Quality of content is.

Will someone find it useful? If yes, keep it.

If content is useful, just enhance it
