like every once in a while, Apple has updated the list of Macs computers that are out of support in Augustso that users who have any of the affected models are aware that their equipment is officially on the vintage list of products.
Apple distinguishes between obsolete and vintage products, the difference between which lies in the number of years that have passed since they were put on sale. In this case we talk about vintage Macsthat is, computers that the company stopped putting up for sale more than 5 years ago, but less than 7.
The list that we are going to show you next is precisely that, one that includes Macs from several years ago that are classified as vintagewhich means that they officially stop having updates, to be considered obsolete later on.
Is Apple MacBook Air M2 (2022) suitable for gaming?
This is the list of Macs that have been left without support since this month:
- 2016 12-inch MacBook.
- MacBook Pro 13-inch from 2015.
- 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro with 2 Thunderbolt ports.
- 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro with 4 Thunderbolt ports.
- MacBook Pro 15-inch from 2016.
- MacBook Air 13-inch from 2015.
- 21.5-inch iMac from 2015.
- 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K panel from 2015.
As vintage products, they will not receive updates and from now on you might even have a problem if you need to repair some of themas they will not be suitable for repair in official Apple stores or authorized suppliers, unless they have parts.
The best option in these cases is either to continue using any of these devices for a very short time if they work well or to think about some of the new equipment that Apple has been launching, for example, the new MacBook Pro with M2, the MacBook Air with M2 etc
The mentioned Macs are no longer supporteda logical decision that will happen again next year, when another list of devices will also be out of support, although Apple could be thinking of recovering some discontinued products, specifically, one of the aforementioned Macs.
