“Apple plans to add select 2009 to 2011 model Macs to its vintage and obsolete products list on December 31, 2016, according to an internal memo seen by MacRumors,” Joe Rossignol reports for MacRumors.

“Vintage products are those that have not been manufactured by Apple for between five and seven years,” Rossignol reports. “Obsolete products are those that were discontinued by Apple more than seven years ago. Apple and Authorized Service Providers make no distinction between obsolete and vintage products outside of Turkey and California.”

Macs will be classified as either vintage or obsolete in the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific region include certain MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and MacBooks models.
