On Monday, Apple updated its list of antique products and added eight additional Macs from 2015 and 2016 to the list.
Vintage status has been given to the original MacBook Pro model with the touch bar, which was released in October 2016 following a thorough redesign by Apple. The Touch Bar is still an option on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip, despite the company’s shift to high-end MacBook Pro models.
The full list of Macs that became vintage at the end of July:
- 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-inch, 2016)
- iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
- iMac (27-inch, Retina 5K, Late 2015)
- 7-inch iPad Pro models released in 2016 are now vintage as well.
Once five years have passed since a device’s release and sale, Apple adds it to the list. The Apple Store and Apple Authorized Service Providers are unable to fix antique products.
