As such, today Apple has updated the legacy product list file to include eight more MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac models released in 2015 and 2016.
Notably, the early Touch Bar MacBook Pro models are now considered obsolete. Apple introduced the Touch Bar in October 2016 as part of the MacBook Pro overhaul. Apple has since removed the Touch Bar from high-end MacBook Pro models, but it’s still available on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip.
Full list of Macs that are out of date at the end of July:
- MacBook (12″ Early 2016)
- MacBook Air (13″ Early 2015)
- MacBook Pro (13″ Early 2015)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch 2016 2 Thunderbolt)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch 2016 Quad Thunderbolt)
- MacBook Pro (15″ 2016)
- iMac (21.5″ Late 2015)
- iMac (27″ Retina 5K Late 2015)
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro models released in 2016 are also obsolete.
A device becomes obsolete five years after the device was last sold by Apple. Older products generally cannot be repaired at Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers while replacement parts are still available.
