Is your Mac outdated? Apple just added 8 computers to its list

Apple usually supports its products for quite a long time. We can mention iPhones, which remain supported for around 6 years. Macs also get this rather lengthy support, but after a while Apple also ends up adding these computers to its list of products considered old or obsolete.

Our colleagues from MacRumors have thus spotted yet another addition to the famous list. In all, there are 8 computer models (MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMac) all launched in 2015 or 2016. The first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar from 2016, in particular, falls into the “old” category. ”.

Apple adds 8 Macs to its list of “old” computers

Here is the full list of Mac models that have recently gone “old”:

  • MacBook (12″, Early 2016)
  • MacBook Air (13″, Early 2015)
  • MacBook Pro (13″, Early 2015)
  • MacBook Pro (13″, 2016, 2 Thunderbolt Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (13″, 2016, 4 Thunderbolt Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (15″, 2016)
  • iMac (21.5″, Late 2015)
  • iMac (27″, Retina 5K, Late 2015)

Apple considers a product to be old when it was released between 5 and 7 years ago. These devices can still be repaired in after-sales service… but within the limits of the stocks of spare parts available. Beyond this period, the product becomes obsolete. In this case, exit hardware repairs. These devices are also likely to become incompatible with the latest versions of macOS or iOS for iPhones for example.

In addition to Macs, iPods, iPhones and iPads, Apple also includes Beats products deemed too old in this list. To check if your Mac is still supported, you can directly check the list of old and obsolete products on the official Apple website. Note also in passing that if your Mac or other Apple device / accessory no longer works, it is quite possible to return it to the firm so that it can be recycled.

This is what Apple calls the “trade-in”. If the device is still in working order, and not too old, it is even possible to benefit from a credit allowing to reduce the purchase price of a newer Apple product. It is also possible to do this recovery in store, or directly by post, via a prepaid recovery kit provided by Apple.
