Unsurprisingly, Apple today updated its legacy product list with eight more MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac models released in 2015 and 2016.
Notably, early MacBook Pro models with the Touch Bar are now classified as older. Apple introduced the Touch Bar in October 2016 as part of a complete redesign of the MacBook Pro. Apple has since removed the Touch Bar from higher-end MacBook Pro models, but it’s still available on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip.
The full list of Macs that went vintage in late July:
- MacBook (12-inch, Early 2016)
- MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2015)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, two Thunderbolt ports)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, four Thunderbolt ports)
- MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
- iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
- iMac (27-inch, Retina 5K, Late 2015)
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro models released in 2016 are now also old.
A device becomes old once five years have passed since Apple last released the device for sale. Older products are generally not eligible for repair at Apple Retail Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers unless replacement parts are still available.
