Apple Launching Program Allowing Repairs of Mid 2011 iMac

Apple is launching a pilot program that will permit Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers to continue offering repair service for 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac models released in mid 2011, even though those models will be classified as vintage starting next month.


Apple usually only offers repairs and replacement parts for a Mac for five years after it is no longer manufactured. Mid 2011 iMac models are now approaching this cutoff, as the last education-only configuration was discontinued in March 2013, but these machines will now remain eligible for service for an additional six months.

The program will be available in the US between March 1, 2018 and August 31, 2018, subject to parts availability from Apple. After the pilot ends, repairs will only be available in California and Turkey, as required by law.
