Three more Macs are now considered obsolete; MacBooks Pro with smudged screens no longer have warranty extension

After third-generation iPads are now considered obsolete, it's time for three more models of Macs to come on this list, as reported by 9to5Mac.

Following the five-year period after discontinuation, the following Macs will no longer be eligible for Apple repair or replacement services:

  • Mac mini (mid 2011);
  • 21.5 ″ iMac (end of 2009);
  • 27 ″ iMac (end of 2009).

It is good to remember that, for Ma, the so-called “classics” (vintage) are discontinued products for more than five and less than seven years, to comply with the laws of Turkey and the US state of California, which oblige you to support them during that time. By the time they reach the age of seven, such products are already considered "obsolete"obsolete), completely losing support worldwide.

In addition to this news, the company also announced that it will no longer offer 2012 MacBooks Pro Extended Warranty suffering from stained screens, a problem that was nicknamed #staingate. If previously all machines with this problem could have their warranties extended, now only the latest MacBooks will be covered if they have the same defect.
