It’s been in the works for months, and Apple has officially updated its list of products that are no longer supported. We therefore find in this selection 8 new models of MacBook Pro, iMac, MacBook Air and MackBook. The particularity that these products have in common concerns their release dates, which oscillate between 2015 and 2016.
Users were impatiently waiting for it, they finally got the announcement from the apple brand. She actually comes from publish the update of the list of its devices which are no longer supported. We find there 8 other Mac models released between 2015 and 2016. Among these new machines, there are the very first MacBook Pro models with the specificity of Touch Bar. Note that the company agreed during its redesign in 2016 to implement a touch bar. She changed her mind long after and did not hesitate to remove this touch bar from all high-end MacBook Pro models. However, you can still find this feature on its brand new release, the 13” MacBook Pro.
As a reminder, for a device to become obsolete, it would take 5 years to pass since the first distribution made by Apple.

It is still necessary for this that the vintage pieces in question are still available. Compiling lists of products that have become obsolete is a widespread practice at Apple. His idea is to create space for new products. That said, here is a zoom of the 8 new Mac models that you will find in the updated list of old Apple products.
The list of obsolete products from Apple is known
Apple continues to update its catalog with a series of new Mac computers. Logically, everything that is obsolete or considered as such should no longer appear in the list in question. In other words, users should avoid using or buying them. Once removed from the catalog, the device simply becomes ineligible for possible repair. This practice is also justified by the fact that technology evolves very quickly and models over 5 years old can quickly become obsolete. This does not mean that you should automatically get rid of your machine. Nevertheless, expect it to be less efficient than the MacBook Air M2, for example, which is able to recharge itself.
