Are you a MacBook user? Apple Has Discarded Repair Services for Selected Variants
MacBooks are undoubtedly famous for its user-friendly interface among all the tech-savvies around the world. But, we have got some heartbreaking news from Apple. And, the news is that Apple is not going to repair some of the MacBook Air and Pro models, from now on.
So, if you are having trouble with these Apple MacBooks then you can’t avail repair services from an authorized Apple shop, any more.
Apart from the Genius Bar of Apple Stores, authorized service providers who are partners of Apple can’t serve you for such gadgets. For example, you can’t avail repair service from Stormfront in case of those obsolete MacBooks.
Why did Apple Make this Decision?
Apple has made it very clear through an official statement that they are not going to produce the repair parts for those listed and discarded MacBooks. This statement makes sense that Apple can’t generate repair parts, though it’s not impossible for such a reputed brand.
However, this can be their business strategy. After all, every technology should end after its limited shelf-life. Moreover, when it comes to Apple, you can expect better and far better tech equipment from MacBooks to iPhones, iPads, and much more.
