About antique or vintage products
Apple considers antique or vintage products those in that it has been more than five but less than seven years since they stopped being distributed for sale. In this case, the Apple team launched in 2015 is six years old and therefore passes away.

It clearly means that not all equipment will be able to be repaired in the event of a serious breakdown, but some of them will be able to receive spare parts without problems even though they are on this list.
Time passes for all these MacBooks that were the first to be launched without internal fans, with a battery placement in the form of balconies, with a price that was not really too cheap and with other novelties such as the already mentioned butterfly keyboard, happens to be listed by Apple as an old product. Now we hope that the new MacBook Pros will take over.
