    There are a number of Apple products which will be entering an "obsolete" status by the end of this year. These products will no longer be eligible for service or repair through Apple support after they go on this list. Apple's notice specifically states, "On December 8, 2015, the products listed below will be classified as either vintage or obsolete in Asia-Pacific, Canada, Europe, Japan, Latin America, the United States, and Apple Retail Stores.”

    Here's the full list:
    • iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
    • iMac (27-inch, Late 2009)
    • MacBook Air (Mid 2009)
    • Mac Pro (Early 2009)
    • MacBook (13-inch, Early 2008)
    • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2009)
    • Apple Cinema Display (23-inch, DVI Early 2007)
    • Time Capsule 802.11n (1st Generation)
    • iPod touch (1st generation)
    • iBeats
    • Beatbox
    • Beatbox Portable (1st generation)
    • Wireless (1st generation)
    • Diddybeats
    • Heartbeats (1st generation)
    A few of these products will be considered “vintage” rather than obsolete in California and Turkey. In these areas, Apple is required to continue limited support in specific situations.

    So, my 6+ year old iPod Touch 2nd Generation is not yet 'obsolete' - ;) Only used now as a MP3 player and still quite handy for that purpose; of course, iOS is fixed on 4.x - on a recent trip, used the device in the bedroom w/ a BT speaker and in the exercise room w/ BT headphones. Dave :)
