If you’ve ever been to an Apple Store Genius Bar, you’ve probably noticed a few cases where people with really old Apple hardware arrive for support. Apple’s customer service is that good when it comes to device repairs, but obviously some products are just too old for parts to still exist. Cupertino usually shares a list of these devices in order to avoid unnecessary sad faces, and we just got the list for December.
As of December 8th, 2015 the following Apple products will sadly not be eligible for repair at the company’s Apple Stores:
– iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
– iMac (27-inch, Late 2009)
– MacBook Air (Mid 2009)
– Mac Pro (Early 2009)
– MacBook (13-inch, Early 2008)
– MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2009)
– Apple Cinema Display (23-inch, DVI Early 2007)
– Time Capsule 802.11n (1st Generation)
– iPod touch (1st generation)
And since Apple has already taken charge of Beats hardware, there’s also a list of these products already being affected:
– Beatbox Portable (1st generation)
– Wireless (1st generation)
– Heartbeats (1st generation)
If your current products are already getting close to a 2010 launch, it might be a good time to start putting them on eBay.
