In case you didn’t know, after a certain age, Apple products can reach ‘vintage’ status and, subsequently, become obsolete. And there is now a new product in this category.
iPad Mini 3 is the latest Apple product on the obsolete list
O iPad Mini 3, in its most varied versions, is the most recent Apple product to be considered obsolete by the brand. The official list can be consulted on the official website of the brand.
We must bear in mind that this is an iPad launched in 2014, thus making it 8 years old. At the time, it was launched together with the second generation of the iPad Air, which, for now, remains on the list of vintage products.
As for specifications, the iPad mini 3 was launched with the Apple A7 Bionic processor, and with 1 GB of RAM. It had a 7.9-inch screen, stereo speakers and a 6470 mAh battery.
What does it mean to be a vintage or obsolete product for Apple
According to Apple’s official website, the products are considered ‘vintage’ when the cracked apple company stopped distributing them for sale more than 5 and less than 7 years ago. They are considered obsolete when Apple stopped distributing them for sale more than 7 years ago.
Please note that “Apple is discontinuing all hardware services for obsolete products, with the sole exception of Mac computers that qualify for an additional battery-only repair period.”
It is also good to keep in mind that service providers cannot order parts for obsolete products. This does not mean that the product will stop working.
