Also today, Apple added the iPod touch (5th generation) to its vintage products, defined as those that have not been manufactured for more than five but less than seven years. Devices on the list are no longer be eligible for service at a Genius Bar or Apple Authorized Service Providers.

The fifth-generation iPod touch was released on October 11, 2012, with more color options than earlier models, offering silver, pink, yellow, blue, and PRODUCT(RED).

Mid-2014 MBPro here. Since it has: Magsafe, HDMI, SD-card slot, Thunderbolt 2, USB3-TypeA, replaceable storage, and a reliable keyboard, it is clearly vintage...

Does this mean I can’t get my 2014 display replaced (for the third time) from Staingate?

The shops only just opened, surely they’d make an exception...
No. You are fine. 2014 is vintage not obsolete. Vintage products still get parts.

Obsolete products no longer have parts made for them.

I can’t believe the mid 2012 non-retina mbp is not on this list. If it gets the new Mac OS this fall I’ll be shocked.

It's not on the list because the list is only additions. The model was already vintage before.

I don’t see it. Only the retina version.
It's not on the list because it's neither vintage nor obsolete, Apple sold that MBP until October 2016, so still (minimum) a year to go before it's on the list
