Apple Posts New List of “Obsolete” Macs, iPods, and Beats Products

Apple regularly adds a number of older products to its obsolete list, meaning those products are no longer eligible for service or repair support via Apple Retail Stores or Apple Authorized Repair Centers.

9to5Mac:

So if you happen to have one of these products and need a hardware repair of some kind, you’ll have until early December to do so at an Apple Store or authorized service provider. 

The Macs becoming vintage/obsolete this time around include:

  • iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
  • iMac (27-inch, Late 2009)
  • MacBook Air (Mid 2009)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2009)
  • MacBook (13-inch, early 2008)
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, early 2009)

Apple typically moves Mac models to the obsolete list 7 years after the last unit was manufactured. As for “Vintage” models (in California and Turkey), the Macs have not been manufactured for more than five and less than seven years ago. The company’s list of obsolete and vintage Macs can be found here.

Apple is also moving the following products to vintage/obsolete status:

  • iPod touch (1st generation)
  • The Apple Cinema Display (23-inch, DVI early 2007)
  • Time Capsule 802.11n (1st) generation
  • iBeats
  • Beatbox
  • Beatbox Portable (1st generation)
  • Wireless (1st generation)
  • Diddybeats
  • Heartbeats (1st generation)

The Beats products are the first that Apple has added to the list since it acquired Beats Electronics in 2013.

Vintage products are those that have not been manufactured for more than five and less than seven years ago. Apple has discontinued hardware service for vintage products with the following exceptions:

  • Macintosh products purchased in the country of Turkey.
    • Owners of vintage Macintosh products may obtain service and parts from Apple service providers within the country of Turkey.
  • Products purchased in the state of California, United States, as required by statute.
    • Owners of vintage Macintosh products may obtain service and parts from Apple service providers within the state of California, United States.
    • Owners of vintage iPod products in the state of California may obtain service from Apple Retail Stores or by contacting AppleCare at 1-800-APL-CARE.
    • Owners of vintage iPhone products in the state of California may obtain service from Apple Retail Stores or by contacting AppleCare at 1-800-APL-CARE.

All of the above products will be obsolete as of December 8, 2015.

    They need to move Apple Support to the obsolete page, along with Apple giving a damn about their customers.

  2. I have a iMac (24-inch, Early 2009) and it still works great.
