Some Mac models will no longer be supported from December. Take a look at the list of obsolete products in case yours is among them.
Some leave and others stay
Not surprisingly, Apple’s new products outsell older products. These are devices that have been declared obsolete and are no longer supported.
In this case – and in the middle of the bridge of the Constitution here in Spain – Apple has announced that from December the following models will be without support in both official and authorized stores.
The list of obsolete or vintage products is extended. If you are interested, from this link you will be able to know all the devices that have been left out of support.
Models that run out of support
- MacBook Pro (15-inch, early 2011)
- MacBook Pro (17-inch, early 2011)
- Mac mini (early 2009)
- MacBook (13-inch, mid-2009)
After these 5-7 years, Apple stops manufacturing spare parts and therefore declares these devices obsolete.
The Macs listed above will be declared obsolete in Asia Pacific, Canada, Europe (except Turkey), Latin America, Japan, and Apple Retail Stores (except California), with the exception of Turkey and California for the MacBook Pro models listed above.
In October, Apple added to its list products such as the iPhone 4, MacBook Air from 13″, the third generation AirPort Extreme and the second generation Time Capsule.
It is clear that technology is advancing and older products are no longer sold and supported, of course.
My Mac is beyond repair?
If you have one of these devices, hurry up if you have something to repair, as from December 8 you will not be able to do so in Apple-authorized locations.
You can always choose to have your Mac repaired by an unofficial retailer as you will no longer have any problems with warranty cancellation, as the 7-year warranty has long since expired.
