What if I have a 12 ″ MacBook now that it is no longer sold?

One day after I removed the MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook from Apple's catalog, the question many users ask themselves is what happens if I have a 12-inch MacBook in my possession, and the answer is undoubtedly simple: absolutely nothing happens.

And we have a bad habit of thinking that when we stop selling a MacBook, an iPad or an iPhone we will be discarded if we have that model eliminated, and it is not like that. The Cupertino company will continue to provide technical support to users We have a 12-inch MacBook or old MacBook Air for a long time, yes, I say we have because I'm writing to you from a 12-inch MacBook right now.

In the event that the equipment suffers some kind of problem and are not found on outdated / vintage devices we will have support from the company for repairs. At Apple they always offer support for MacBook even if it is not sold, so you can rest assured that you will not be left with a Mac without repair options in case of problem.

The macOS of my computer that is no longer sold will be updated

Another detail to keep in mind when this happens is that Apple will continue to release updates for a while even though it is not officially sold. We can rest assured that we are not going to run out of new versions of the software for a few years, it will depend on the age of our MacBook as with the rest of the devices, the only bad thing is that these 12-inch MacBook or the MacBook Air prior to 2018 will lose something of value in the second hand and more when a new MacBook Air comes out for just over 1.200 euros.

    What's going to happen, nothing then. Do you think a cataclysm will happen to you and you will go back to the stone age? All computers that ever go off the list are supported for a time and then become obsolete. No one has died from it. This post seems to me a clear example of what to do when you have nothing in your mind to update the page.

    Keep it in its box and wait 40 years as it will become a collector's item and will be worth much more money than it cost you lol.

    Hello, I am interested in this equipment, I use it to make estimates in Excel and little else, would you recommend it?
    Will it be upgraded to Mac OS Catalina?
