Report: Apple Is Declaring Several MacBooks Obsolete

Apple is reportedly planning to declare three models of MacBook obsolete in April.

MacRumors reports that Apple is going to add the 11-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Air, and 13-inch MacBook Pro models released in early 2014 to its obsolete products list this month.

The move would hardly come as a surprise. Apple has released new versions of the 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro—most notably with its custom silicon—in the last eight years.

MacRumors notes that the company hasn’t released an 11-inch MacBook Air since 2016, either, so it’s probably looking to stop carrying replacement parts for this eight-year-old product.

The internal memo detailing Apple’s plans reportedly claimed “the MacBook models listed above may remain eligible for battery-only repairs in select countries for a limited time.”

More information about Apple’s obsolete products is available via its website. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about its plans for these MacBooks.
