The 12-inch MacBook originally presented by Apple in 2015 has now been added to Apple’s list of vintage products. Products are viewed as vintage when Apple stopped distributing them for sale over five years prior and under seven years prior.
The 12-inch Retina MacBook was first presented during Apple’s March Event in 2015, with Apple promoting it as the most slender MacBook to date. It ushered in a new era for the MacBook lineup with a USB-C port and butterfly keyboard design. At a certain point, Apple’s Phil Schiller even recognized that the 12-inch MacBook “created many of the pioneering technologies” that in the end advanced toward the MacBook Pro.
Obviously, presently bits of gossip demonstrate that Apple is hoping to undo many of those changes with the following MacBook Pro update. Another MacBook Pro coming later this year will once again introduce ports including a SD card slot and HDMI, and Apple has moved its whole MacBook line away from the notorious butterfly keyboard.
The 12-inch MacBook being added to Apple’s “vintage” products list today is the model initially presented in 2015. The resulting updates in 2016 and 2017 are not yet considered “vintage” by Apple. Apple suspended the 12-inch MacBook lineup altogether in 2019.
Before, vintage Apple products were not, at this point qualified for repairs from Apple or Apple Authorized Service Providers, Nowadays, be that as it may, repairs are liable to parts accessibility however may still be possible. A product loses all hardware service when it becomes “obsolete,” which happens when Apple stopped distributing it available to be purchased over seven years prior.
