Goodbye and the scarf: Apple will soon stop repairing its first MacBook Pro with a Retina display
The apple company is known for its maximum support for its devices, which in most cases is long-lasting, and users do not have to worry about ending up overnight, as is the case with competitors. Nevertheless, there will come a time when the device will simply become obsolete and it is slowly necessary to declare a definitive time of death. This usually happens 8 years after Apple's Apple product release, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro with the very first Retina display is no exception. After all, this old man saw the light of day in 2012 and it is no wonder that society gradually broke his staff over him.

If you own a mid-2012 MacBook Pro, you should be smart. According to the latest information, which was sent to individual services and Apple Story, this model will be definitively obsolete on June 30 this year, which in practice means that users will not be entitled to hardware repairs or purchase compatible accessories. However, this is not an unexpected step, after all, already in 2018, Apple included this model in the list of still supported, but largely unavailable devices. Nevertheless, the owners could really ask for them in the official service, or buy some accessories from the offer. However, this privilege ends anew and the people in question will either have to switch to a newer model or try to really use their own efforts.
