If you’re the proud owner of a Mac made between early 2008 and late 2009, you’ll be glad to know it’s likely obsolete. The Cupertino firm has updated its vintage and obsolete products list with a number of older products that haven’t been manufactured for over five years.
New entrants on the list include a number of Macs made during 2008 and 2009, the second-generation Time Capsule, the original 32GB iPod touch, and more. Any products on the list are no longer eligible for hardware service.
Apple defines vintage products as those that have not been manufactured for more than five and less than seven years ago, while obsolete products are those that were discontinued more than seven years ago.
The new additions are listed below for your edification.
