As of April 30, Apple’s obsolete product list will have three new members, the MacBook Air 11 Early 2014, MacBook Air 13 Early 2014, and MacBook Air 13 Mid 2014. These three computers already have long time behind them, and the truth is that they have been widely surpassed by the different teams that have been arriving on the market, but this does not mean that they no longer have any use.
The MacBook Air 11 and the other two 13-inch models used processors Core Gen4that is, they were based on Intel’s Haswell architecture, and had Intel HD 5000 graphics solutions. They already used SSD drives and could be configured with up to 8 GB of RAM, an amount that is in fact the base that Apple still uses. on its new generation MacBooks based on the Apple M1 SoC.
There’s no doubt that they can still perform well on non-demanding tasks, but both the MacBook Air 11 and the 13-inch versions released in 2014 lthey had been on the list of «vintage» products for a while from Apple, so it was clear that it was only a matter of time until they were moved to the list of obsolete products, something that will finally be fulfilled on April 30, as we have told you before.
Apple considers a product to be obsolete when seven years have passed since it was put up for sale. That is the general rule, so it can help you to get an idea of when the Apple equipment you have bought will be considered obsolete. Well, what does it mean that a product is considered obsolete by the apple giant? Well, very simple, that this will not be accepted at the official technical service to carry out repairs, although in some countries, due to current legislation, they will have to continue accepting them for battery repairs or changes (for a limited time).
