  • Apple Adds New Products to Its Vintage and Obsolete Products List


    Apple on Tuesday added a variety of new devices ranging from Macs to iOS devices to accessory devices to the company's online 'vintage and obsolete' products list. This list composes of devices that are too old for Apple to continue to support with replacement parts and support.

    The following devices are now 'vintage or obsolete' in the United States:

    • iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
    • iMac (27-inch, Late 2009)
    • MacBook Air (Mid 2009)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2009)
    • Time Capsule 802.11n (2nd generation)

    And the following devices are now 'vintage or obsolete' globally:

    • Apple Cinema Display (23-inch, DVI, Early 2007)
    • Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI)
    • MacBook (13-inch, Early 2008)
    • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008)
    • MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2008)
    • Time Capsule 802.11n (1st generation)
    • iPod touch with Jan SW UPG 32GB


    As Apple's technology continues to evolve, supporting these older devices no longer becomes possible. Modern machines are too different from newer ones, and it ends up costing Apple more to repair these devices in the long run, or replacement parts begin to run out. For these reasons, Apple is no longer required to issue repairs except where required by law in limited instances.

    You can check out the full list of vintage and obsolete products on Apple's Web site at this link.

      I'm going to chalk this up to coincidence, but my 2009 mac pro and cinema screen both crapped out last week. Talk about timing.

      My early 2008 macbook pro still works like a charm. Screen I replaced three years back.
