In October, Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted at the future of the Mac mini stating that it is “an important part of our product line going forward.” While we haven’t heard any news on a new mini since that statement, an older Mac mini model has received a new designation: obsolescence.
This week, Apple added all 2011 Mac mini models to its vintage and obsolete products list, according to MacRumors. The designation means that Apple and Apple Authorized Service Providers will no longer repair or service the 2011 Mac mini, given over five years have passed since it was last manufactured, except where required by law (California and Turkey).
The 2011 Mac mini was the first to bring a Thunderbolt port and do away with the optical drive. Currently, it has been more than 1,100 days since the Mac mini was last refreshed in 2014.
