First generation 12-inch MacBook will be ‘obsolete’ from June 30

# **First generation 12-inch MacBook will be ‘obsolete’ from June 30** **Apple is expected to expand the list of obsolete products with the addition of the first 12-inch MacBook model since June 30.** According to *Neowin*, the first-generation 12-inch MacBook was announced in March 2015 with prices starting at $1,299. It is a MacBook equipped with an Intel Core M dual-core CPU combined with 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and up to 512 GB of storage space. The product was discontinued in April 2016 after Apple released the next-generation version. The 12-inch MacBook has only two ports on the whole machine, including a 3.5mm audio jack and a multi-function USB-C that supports USB 3.1 Gen 1, HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort 1.2. This also means that users must purchase a separate USB-C adapter for additional connectivity options. It was also the first Apple laptop with a USB-C port, and the first MacBook to ship without MagSafe charging at the time. At the end of 2021, Apple brought the MagSafe 3 charging connector to the MacBook Pro using the Apple M-series chip. The 2015 12-inch MacBook is also one of the lightest laptops on the market, weighing in at just 920 grams. With a 39.7 Wh battery, the machine gives up to 30 days of standby time and about 9 hours of web browsing. It is known that Apple marks a product as obsolete after the company stopped selling this product on the market for 7 years. Service providers cannot order repair parts for that device, and they are no longer eligible for hardware repair at Apple Stores and Apple-authorized service centers. Last month, Apple also added the first-generation iPad Air to its list of obsolete products. Since its launch date, the 12-inch MacBook has been refreshed twice, the first time in April 2016 and the second time in June 2017 before being discontinued in 2019.
