Apple plans to add the first-generation iPad Pro to its list of historic products in late June, the company announced this week in an internal report distributed to Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers.
The product has become a “vintage” more than five years since Apple last distributed the product for sale. Old products were previously ineligible for service at Apple, but the Apple Store and Apple Authorized Service Providers now offer repairs to historic products for up to two more years, depending on parts availability.
The original iPad Pro, released in November 2015, had a 12.9-inch display, which was significantly larger than the 9.7-inch display of all previous iPad models. In addition to this device, Apple introduced the Smart Keyboard for iPad and Apple Pencil, which made the iPad Pro a more direct competitor to hybrid tablets such as Microsoft Surface. Smart keyboard magnetically connected to the new iPad Pro Smart Connector.
The original iPad Pro also included an Apple A9X chip, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a Home button with Touch ID and four speakers. In the United States, the price started at $ 799 per model with Wi-Fi only with 32GB of storage, and LTE models are also offered.
In addition, the 32GB iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will also be classified as old at the end of June, the report said.
Apple TV HD?
Surprisingly, he advises more resources MacRumors that an Apple report says “Apple TV HD” will also be classified as vintage at the end of June, although Apple continues to sell devices with 32GB of storage.
Even if Apple TV HD were discontinued at Apple’s upcoming WWDC conference, it would be too early for the device to be classified as “vintage” according to Apple’s current definition, as it would be less than five years after distribution ended.
Apple TV HD was first released in October 2015 as the fourth generation of Apple TV and was renamed after the launch of Apple TV 4K in September 2017. In addition to the Apple TV 4K, the Apple TV HD also came with a slightly modified Siri. The remote control with a white ring around the “Menu” button, but it’s still not more than five years since this change, so that doesn’t seem like a plausible explanation either.
One possible explanation is that “Apple TV HD” is a typo, and Apple actually wanted to refer to the release of “Rev A” third-generation Apple TV, which ended in October 2016, but remained available for some time as a reordered item. have been met, which means that the plant can now reach five years since its last distribution.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple plans to release a new Apple TV in the second half of 2022.
An Apple report says the iPhone 4S will be classified as “obsolete” by the end of June. The products are considered obsolete when Apple stopped distributing them more than seven years ago and, apart from a few regions, they are no longer eligible for hardware services.
Apple announced the iPhone 4S in October 2011 as the first device with Siri. The device had a similar design to the iPhone 4 with features including a 3.5-inch display, an A5 chip, a 30-pin dock connector and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
