“Apple is about to discontinue repair support for a handful of products as it plans to designate some Apple TV, iPod, and display models as ‘obsolete’ a day before its iPhone event next month,” Jordan Kahn reports for 9to5Mac.
“The products receiving obsolete status include the original Apple TV, the Apple LED Cinema Display (24-inch), Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI Early 2007), the 2nd and 3rd generation iPod touch, the 3rd and 5th generation iPod nano, and iPod classic,” Kahn reports. “The products are scheduled to become obsolete early next month — just one day before Apple is expected to hold its press event introducing new iPhones — on September 8th.”
“All of the products become obsolete (or vintage where applicable) across all of Apple’s markets worldwide,” Kahn reports, “and will no longer be eligible for service or hardware support through Apple’s retail stores or third-party service providers.”
