A little later than expected, Apple has added the following 2013 and 2014 models of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro to its vintage and obsolete products list:
macbook air pro 13 inch 2014

  • ‌MacBook Air‌ (11-inch, Mid 2013)
  • ‌MacBook Air‌ (13-inch, Mid 2013)
  • ‌MacBook Air‌ (11-inch, Early 2014)
  • ‌MacBook Air‌ (13-inch, Early 2014)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2014)

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). The ‌iPod touch‌ (5th generation) was officially discontinued by Apple on July 15, 2015, with the release of its successor, the ‌iPod touch‌ (6th generation).

An internal memo obtained by MacRumors at the beginning of last month revealed Apple's plans to obsolete ‌the above Mac products by the end of April.

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

How do you access this screen BTW? I am still on Mojave, so is this something new for Catalina? Thanks.
It's from an App called Mactracker, good thing...it's completely free.
