Next August 31, a new device will join the list of old and obsolete products for Apple. This new device is the MacBook Air 2012 11 and 13 inches. At Apple, when a device is considered obsolete, it means that the manufacturer will not repair the device in the event of a problem. However, with the MacBook Air 2012, Apple seems to be reviewing the rule.
MacBook Air 2012 soon obsolete but will enjoy repairs from Apple for two years
According to the site MacRumors, the 2012 MacBook Air models, although considered obsolete by Apple, will be able to benefit from repairs in Apple stores and also at Apple authorized service providers all over the world until August 31, 2020, two years whole after the machine is considered obsolete. MacBook Air users living in the United States and Japan have a good share of the pie: they will be able, until August 31, 2020, to send their MacBook Air for repair to a physical store by a postal service without being obliged to go there in person.
On the other hand, if parts to repair these MacBook Air are not available (or already sold), the Apple Stores and Apple authorized service providers may then refuse the repair.
