Apple has sent a letter to all its official stores and authorized maintenance centers informing them that as of June 30 it will stop receiving some devices, thus losing the possibility of maintaining them at the centers.
MacBook Air 11-inch and 13-inch notebooks released in mid-2011 with MacBook Pro 13-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch notebooks manufactured by the end of 2011 will not be received for maintenance beyond the said date, Apple said. She also noted that the MacBook Pro 17-inch in mid-2009 will be attached to those computers.
In addition, Apple and its maintenance centers will stop receiving the first generation of the AirPort Express, which was introduced for the first time in 2008. The iPhone 3GS with 16 GB and 32GB will not be supported after the end of June.
The previous devices move to the Obolete list, which contains devices that have been shut down 5 to 7 years ago, because of the difficulty of finding their switch parts. The Vintage menu contains devices that can be maintained in part and limited.
It should be noted that some of the devices mentioned in Apple’s message, specifically computers, will not stop Apple’s stores in Turkey from receiving, but will be maintenance limited for a period of time before the reception is stopped completely.
Apple has added the possibility of scheduling appointments to maintain the devices through Apple agents accredited within its official site, having been able to book appointments confined to Apple’s official stores and maintenance centers and technical support Genius Bar.
