  • Apple Moving Some Products to Vintage and Obsolete Status Starting December

    It has been reported that Apple will be discontinuing service and repair support for many older Apple products, which means they will be moved to obsolete status. Products like older iPods, Macs, and accessories are on the list and unfortunately authorized third-party sellers and Apple retail stores will no longer take the products in for repair or any type of support.

    Macs on the list include:

    • MacBook (13-inch, early 2008)
    • MacBook Air (Mid 2009)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2009)
    • MacBook Pro (15-inch, early 2009)
    • iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
    • iMac (27-inch, Late 2009)
    This won’t take effect until December 8th so those who own one of the listed products will have a little over a month to get Apple to fix whatever needs to be done. Authorized Apple service providers and retail locations will be able to fix the product until then. All regions will have the same policy for the listed products.

    Apple usually begins to stop service on products 5-7 years after manufacturing of a certain model has been discontinued. Other products that will be in vintage obsolete status includes the 23-inch Apple Cinema Display (early 2007), 1st generation iPod Touch, 1st generation Time Capsule 802.11n, and some Beats Electronics.

    Beats electronics on the list include:

    • iBeats
    • Beatbox
    • Beatbox Portable (1st generation)
    • Wireless (1st generation)
    • Diddybeats
    • Heartbeats (1st generation)
