From time to time, the apple company updates its lists of obsolete products. That’s it, Two new products are added. The category implies that these teams that are within it will no longer receive official technical support. So in this post we are going to explain what they are, in the same way that we will also see those products that, due to their age, could become part of the obsolete products in a short time.
An iPad and a monitor are already part of the category
At the moment Apple has only updated the list on its US website, however, this already implies that these products are considered obsolete worldwide. The apple company does not differentiate, in this regard, by country or region.
It had been weeks since the rumor that these two devices were going to end up being part of the list of obsolete products, and finally it has been. The first of them is him Apple Thunderbolt Display monitor, the 27-inch one, which began to be put up for sale in 2011. The second, the first-generation iPad Air, both in its Wi-Fi connection variant and Wi-Fi + Cellular, in all its memory storage capacities. The latter began to be put on sale in 2013. Therefore, we are talking about products launched 12 and 10 years ago, respectively.
So, if we still have one of these two, Apple already considers that they have finished their useful life cycle in terms of repairs. We will no longer have access to official parts and spare parts, nor will we be able to go to an Apple Store or a SATin the event that our device needs fixes of some kind.
This is how the list of obsolete iPad products looks right now

- iPad (original) Wi-Fi + 3G
In addition to this list, Apple also has a category of products considered old. These have been out of sale for a long time, but they have not passed the seven-year cutoff (or Apple simply considers that it is not the time yet), and these can continue to have access to official repairs.
