Refer this iPad to retirement!

Apple regularly continues to add its old products to the “vintage” and “obsolete” categories, with MacRumors stating that Apple may expand this list of “old” products by adding another product – the first generation Apple iPad Mini launched in 2012.

According to a report, the first generation iPhone Mini will become “obsolete” from July 31, which means that Apple will no longer provide software or service support for the device nor will it provide replacement parts to third-party repair vendors.

Apple classifies a product as “obsolete” seven years after the company ceased sales, and accordingly Apple sold the last generation iPad Mini in 2015.

The iPad Mini features a 7.9-inch LED-backlit multi-touch display with a resolution of 1074 x 768 pixels. The tablet was powered by a dual-core Apple A5 chipset and used to pack 64GB of internal storage.

The iPad sports a 5MP iSight autofocus camera with features like face detection, tap to focus, geo-tagging, video recording, and more. On the front, it offers a 1.2 megapixel sensor with support for 720p video recording.
What is the “Old Apple List”?

After discontinuing a product, Apple calls it “vintage” after five years. During this period, Apple will continue to provide first-party and third-party services for the product, however, if the product has been discontinued for more than seven years, it is classified as obsolete, and as mentioned above, the company stops providing any product support including replacement parts to vendors of Third Party.
