From time to time, Apple updates its list of classic / obsolete (vintage / obsolete) with items that are no longer supported by the company, usually when not manufactured for over 5-7 years.
As of the last day of 2016 (also known as 12/31), these Macs will get into the cake:
- MacBook Pro (15 inch, early 2011)
- MacBook Pro (17 inch, early 2011)
- Mac mini (early 2009)
- MacBook (13 inches, mid 2009)
The last list update had occurred in mid-October, when the iPhone 4 entered it.
