Apple banishes several of your devices, they won't even repair them

The American multinational IT company declares those devices that cannot technologically keep up with newer models as discontinued products. Several Macs and iPads were included in the outdated Apple devices this week.

The first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, the iPad Pro and iPad mini (2,3) are also such outdated products. In the future, they will not be repaired in Apple stores or service partners under contract with the company. Anyone who wants to buy parts for these models can do so for another two years.
