Apple has added the second-generation Apple TV to its list of “vintage” and “obsolete” products, making the product ineligible for repairs, AppleInsider is reporting. An Apple support document reveals that the only places where service and parts may still be available are in Turkey and California, where only the “vintage” label is in effect. In the rest of the world, the set-top has been declared “obsolete”.
Vintage products are defined by Apple as those products that have not been manufactured for more than 5 and less than 7 years ago. Whereas obsolete products are those that were discontinued more than 7 years ago. For instance, Monster-branded Beats products are considered obsolete regardless of when they were purchased.
Apple is expected to add 4K video support and a faster processor to its fifth generation Apple TV, with a possible release later this year.
