Apple's first MacBook Pro (2012) with Retina display is now obsolete worldwide

02 July 2020 0

Apple has officially added its first MacBook Pro with Retina display to the worldwide “obsolete” list. This means it will no longer receive any hardware support from the company. Apple relinquishes the support after 8 years of the release of this MacBook Pro. The support document notes that obsolete products are “those whose sales were discontinued more than 7 years ago and it was about time for the first-ever MacBook Pro as well.” Also, “Apple discontinues all hardware service for obsolete products, with n exceptions.”

This means you are left with some DIY repairs or mend it with the help of some third-party or local agencies.

Apple introduced the new or third-gen MacBook Pro at WWDC 2012 event and marketed as “MacBook Pro with Retina Display” to differentiate it from the predecessor model. Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller touted it to have a magnificent display and said “there has not been any notebook this gorgeous…. and powerful.”

This model featured a slimmer design compared to the previous models by taking a toll of built-in Ethernet port and optical disc driver for CDs/DVDs. It was introduced with a solid-state drive housed in a proprietary flash module design. Apple also claimed improved speakers and microphones and a new system for cooling the notebook with improved fans.
