Apple adds 11-inch MacBook Air and more to list of obsolete products

According to an internal memo obtained by MacRumors, Apple will add two MacBook Airs and a MacBook Pro to its list of obsolete products on April 30. All three laptops have been on Apple's "old" product list since 2020 and will be moved to the "obsolete" list at the end of the month.

The three products that are about to become "obsolete" are:

  • MacBook Air (11-inch, Early 2014)
  • MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2014)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2014)

Three products have been in the market for at least seven years, and Apple considers them outdated. Apple is discontinuing all hardware services for obsolete products, but the MacBook models listed above may still be eligible for battery repairs in select countries for a limited time, the memo said.

IT House learned that after October 2016, Apple discontinued the 11-inch MacBook Air, and launched the first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar at the conference. While the 13-inch MacBook Air was last refreshed in November 2020 with an M1 chip, display industry consultant Ross Young said a larger 15-inch MacBook Air would arrive in 2023.
