These Versions Of The Apple MacBook Soon To Become Obsolete

Apple MacBook

It is probably one of the historic moment for Apple.

As Apple is set to make four Mac computers obsolete, according to an internal memo leaked to MacRumors.

The machines were released between 2009 and 2011 and include MacBook Pro, MacBook and Mac Mini models.

Products classified as Vintage are those Apple has not manufactured for more than five and less than seven years ago.

Apple discontinues hardware service for vintage products with the following exceptions – Mac products purchased in the country of Turkey, or bought in the state of California, United States.

Meanwhile, obsolete products are those that were discontinued more than seven years ago.

Any products classified as obsolete are no longer serviced by Apple.

None of these Mac computers will be eligible for repairs or part replacements from Apple or any of its authorised service providers.

Providing the internal memo leaked to MacRumors is legitimate, the following four Macs will be classified as either vintage or obsolete (depending on where they were purchased) in the UK, Europe, United States, Canada, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region from 2017.

  • Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011)

  • Apple MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2011)

  • Apple Mac mini (Early 2009)

  • Apple MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2009)

Anyone running one of these devices who needs something on it repaired or replaced – you might want to book a Genius Appointment in your local Apple Store as soon as possible.
