Tram Ho

According to information on the Macrumors site, recently, Apple recently updated the list of obsolete products with 8 more MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMac models released in 2015 and 2016.

Notably, the first MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar are now classified as antique. Apple first introduced the Touch Bar in October 2016, blowing a new breath into the design of the MacBook Pro. However, Apple recently removed the Touch Bar from high-end MacBook Pro models, but kept it with the newly launched 13-inch MacBook Pro model M2.

The full list of Macs that have just been listed by Apple as legacy products:

MacBook 12 inch (early 2016).

13-inch MacBook Air (early 2015).

13-inch MacBook Pro (early 2015).

13-inch MacBook Pro (2016, two Thunderbolt ports).

13-inch MacBook Pro (2016, four Thunderbolt ports).

MacBook Pro 15-inch (2016).

iMac 21.5 inch (late 2015).

iMac 27-inch Retina 5K (late 2015).

According to Macrumors, Apple defines old as products that have not been manufactured for more than 5 years but less than 7 years, while obsolete products have been out of production for more than 7 years. Macs and other products on the old and obsolete list are generally no longer eligible for Apple hardware services.

After being listed, these devices will still function normally, but will not be able to receive new OS version updates. In addition, Apple will also stop providing repair parts for Mac computers that are on the obsolete list. Therefore, if there is a problem, users will not be able to repair and replace genuine parts.

In addition, the above products are no longer genuine and new, only old products are circulating on the market. Therefore, if you still want to buy, users need to check carefully by looking at the information in the device. With a Mac, click on the apple logo located in the upper left corner of the toolbar and then go to the About section to see the model information. With iPad Pro, check in the About section of Settings.

At the same time, users also need to pay attention to the warranty period. In the case of warranty, Apple guarantees warranty and repair policies according to standards. In addition, outdated MacBooks often have old components, which are easy to damage the screen, hard drive, and RAM. These components are expensive to replace and hard to find.
