Discontinued because... - January 17, 2016 at 11:23pm
It makes sense that other computer companies don't use the ports you mentioned thereby saying who needs them to begin with, but thunderbolt ports still exist, but unless you were to still use those ports, it makes sense to keep them in a iMac because it can't travel. As for aperture, it's merged into iPhoto thus creating photos for Mac. MagSafe is there since it's rechargeable and works with usb-c converters and let me remind you it can be done you you plug a thunderbolt or MagSafe to usb-c in it. Mac Pro still exists it's not like they're extinct. Side bar has changed on iTunes (like it matters). You can keep the 17" MacBook yourself and upgraded like a beast with OWC (best computer part brand ever). Keep the old iPhone if you don't like the jack. The miser the iPhones are the more it will support more later iOS versions. You can buy converting cords to use old ports like still pull off Ethernet on any MacBook, disc drive etc. If you don't like it, ignore it. Btw iPhone 5e (an upgraded 5s) and a 6c is coming so what not to like?

Who cares there's always Pandora anyway. Apple Music is too expensive for the little crap it does. Sticking to Pandora and Spotify which one is free since jailbroken lol
