Original iPad Mini Now Considered 'Vintage'

Posted July 31, 2020 at 9:40pm by iClarified
The original iPad mini, first released in 2012, is now considered a 'Vintage' product. Apple updated its list of vintage and obsolete products to include the 7.9-inch tablet earlier today. The company also marked the 2011 21.5-inch iMac as obsolete.

Vintage products are those that have not been sold for more than 5 and less than 7 years ago. Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Apple TV vintage products continue to receive hardware service from Apple service providers, including Apple Retail Stores, subject to availability of inventory, or as required by law.

Once a product hasn't been sold for seven years, Apple will consider it 'Obsolete'.

Obsolete products are those whose sales were discontinued more than 7 years ago. Monster-branded Beats products are considered obsolete regardless of when they were purchased. Apple has discontinued all hardware service for obsolete products, with no exceptions. Service providers cannot order parts for obsolete products.

You can check out the full list of vintage and obsolete Apple products at the link below.

Apple's current generation iPad mini, with largely the same design, is on sale for $349.99 today.
