Will Apple still exist in 20 years

Obsolete and vintage products

IPad, iPhone, iPod, or Mac product owners will receive service and replacement parts from Apple or Apple service providers for five years after the product is discontinued (or longer if required by law). Apple no longer supports certain discontinued and vintage products.

Vintage products are products that have not been manufactured for more than five and less than seven years. Apple has discontinued hardware support for vintage products, with the following exceptions:

  • Macintosh products purchased in Turkey.
    • Vintage Macintosh owners can get service and replacement parts from Apple Service Providers in Turkey.
  • Products that were purchased in the state of California and that have additional service required by law.
    • Vintage Macintosh owners can get service and replacement parts from Apple Service Providers in the state of California.
    • Vintage iPod owners in the state of California can get service from Apple Stores or by contacting AppleCare at 1-800-APL-CARE.
    • Vintage iPhone owners in the state of California can get service from Apple Stores or by contacting AppleCare at 1-800-APL-CARE.

For products purchased in France, please refer to: Legal Seller's Warranty and Parts.

Obsolete products are products that were discontinued more than seven years ago. Apple has stopped the hardware service for discontinued products without exception. Service providers cannot order replacement parts for discontinued products.

All Apple Stores and the Canadian, European, Latin American, and Asia-Pacific operating regions follow the US product list, but make no distinction between vintage products and discontinued products. When applied to the Apple Stores and these operating regions, products will be placed on the US Vintage List (all types) considered obsolete.
