The original 7.9-inch iPad mini, released in 2012, is now officially legacy. This is the smallest Apple tablet to date. Since then, several generations of successors to the device have come out, but the design has not changed during this time: the latest iPad mini has the same thick bezels and around Home button with Touch ID.
Products deemed obsolete may continue to receive hardware service from Apple and service providers as long as parts are available for repair and where required by law. These are gadgets that have not been sold for more than 5 or less than 7 years.
In addition, the 21.5-inch iMac from the end of 2011 was included in the list of retired products. This is a list of devices that were discontinued more than 7 years ago. The company does not service hardware for retired products, and service centers do not have the ability to order official spare parts.
