Apple is well-known for its extended and proactive support for its products. When you purchase one of the company’s gadgets, you are investing in something that you know will receive (software and hardware) support for many years to come.
And this is really reassuring for clients since everyone wants to have this type of peace of mind. Accidents and flaws occur, therefore not having access to adequate repair services may be troublesome, if not a deal-breaker, for many consumers. However, all good things must come to an end, and so does official support for Apple goods.
Apple marks some of the Macbook Air products as obsolete because they are no longer sold
The 11-inch MacBook Air (Early 2014), 13-inch MacBook Air (Early 2014), and 13-inch MacBook Pro (Mid 2014) by Apple will be phased out and become obsolete from April 30 onwards.
It seems like Apple already has listed them as old products since 2020 and they are about to term them as ‘obsolete’ in a few weeks.
Apple has a lengthy history of releasing old and obsolete items. The former are those that the firm has sold in the recent five to seven years. Obsolete products, on the other side, are ones that haven’t been sold by Apple in seven years or longer. So, what exactly does this mean?
When a gadget becomes obsolete, the Cupertino-based tech behemoth discontinues hardware support for it. Furthermore, it halts the shipment of spare parts to approved repair locations.
If something breaks while using one of those, you’ll have to hunt for unauthorized repair shops that sell (perhaps) used or unoriginal components. It’s worth noting, though, that certain of these MacBook models may still be eligible for battery repairs in some locations – though for a limited period.
