Apple updates its list of old or vintage Macs: 8 new models


MacBook Pro M1

As time goes by and Apple updates its catalog of new devices, we have to think about what we are leaving behind, or rather what is being left behind. The new models must replace the older ones or, as they like to call themselves now, the more vintage ones. Taking this premise into account, the company is adding a series of models to this category. Not only does it do it for reference, it has its consequences and now they have been added 8 new models of Mac computers to that list. Let’s see what they are.

As we continue to improve the catalog with new Mac computers, the older ones should go off that list and become vintage. This means that we can no longer buy them and that we should not, because when Apple catalogs one of its devices with that category, it means that are not eligible for repair at Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providersbasically because they do not have the necessary parts.

The company categorizes as old or vintage those Macs in which they have already passed five years from the date of first sale. Five years is nothing, but in these times and taking into account how much technology evolves, we can say that it is a prudent time. That doesn’t mean that we should change our Mac. But it does mean that after that time, if we want to update, we can do it without fear, because almost any other one on the market will be better and, of course, more modern.

The models that are considered old or vintage right now are the following:

  • 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 inches, 2016)
  • iMac (21.5 inches, late 2015)
