Just a few weeks ago I wrote about how my 27″ iMac was still going strong and running the latest build of macOS. I’m still impressed by how long this computer has held up and continues to perform. Well, I learned today that Apple has declared it to be obsolete. 🙁
All this means is that Apple won’t offer repairs and replacement parts, which really isn’t that big of a deal since I would go to a 3rd party repair place or do the repair myself. Once the Apple care warranty expires, going direct to Apple is my last resort.
There was one item from the article that tickled me though. If I lived in California, then my iMac would be considered “Vintage”.
For legal reasons, the situation is different in Turkey and California, where the computers are instead labeled ‘vintage’ and will continue to be supported for a further two years.
