There will be the release of the first models of the MacBook Pro equipped with the Touch Bar in Apple's list of vintage products at the end of July.
The company regularly reclassifies its hardware as 'vintage' or 'obsolete' over the course of time, as well as selections.
The company's history that is consigned to the vintage collection every year. Several new additions will be added to the lineup in July 2022, including the first touch-enabled products.
Among the items to be classified as vintage include the 16-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro editions from 2016, along
with the 12-inch MacBook from 2016 and the 15-inch MacBook Air from 2015, according to an internal memo obtained by MacRumors.
Aside from the 21.5-inch iMac 2015 and the 27-inch Retina 5K iMac 2015, the list also includes the 2015 21.5-inch iMac.
A 9.7-inch iPad Pro will also be considered vintage at the same time, Apple said in its memo. A vintage designation will be applied to all products on July 31.
Products are classified as 'vintage' when Apple no longer distributes them for sale. Typically, vintage products can't be serviced as easily as non-vintage ones, but parts may become available and services may be performed in rare circumstances.
When a product is no longer available after seven years, it is considered 'Obsolete,' and in no case is it eligible for hardware service at Apple Stores or through authorized repair centers.
Adding the MacBook Pro models to the list would be a fitting addition for the Touch Bar since Apple has almost completely distanced itself from it currently. Among all MacBook Pro models available for sale, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is the last to use it.
