A few weeks ago, we reported that some products – including the latest white (polycarbonate) MacBook – were on the list of classic / obsolete from Apple. Yesterday, she announced that a few more will follow this path starting on June 30th.
This time, the list Mid-2011 11 and 13-inch MacBooks Air, the 13, 15, and 17-inch MacBooks Pro from late 2011, The Mid-2009 17-inch MacBook Pro, The AirPort Express 802.11n (first generation) and the 16GB and 32GB iPhones.
In some countries, Apple classifies products as classics (vintage); in others, as obsolete (obsolete). Depending on the respective local laws, this can happen five or seven years after the product is discontinued, but in practice the result is the same: total closure of technical support.
Apple has a support article listing all products that are already on that list.
