A new pilot program called Repair Vintage Apple Products is under preparation as Apple plans to revamp older versions of its devices. Repairing older versions of the devices are surely a positive environment factor, considering how we throw away most mobile devices. Earlier, Apple had dubbed these devices too old to repair.
Currently, in this pilot program, Apple is planning to repair devices as old as iPhone 4S and MacBook launched in 2012. If a particular device’s parts aren’t available, Apple has reserved the rights to repair it. You just need to head out to an authorized Apple service provider.
Apple is planning to repair the devices in 3 different release dates. The first devices to get repaired include iPhone 5, MacBook Air 11- and 12-inch released in 2012 and iMac 21.5 and 27-inch devices released in 2012. The Pilot program will further extend to iPhone 4S, MacBook Pro released in early 2012 to early 2013.
Unauthorized companies are prevented from repairing Apple’s devices (especially laptops) as Apple uses proprietary software. The new Repair pilot program seems to be like a new opening to restore older versions. Apple proudly launched MacBook Air and Mac mini recently that are made from 100 percent recycled aluminum. Surely, this is a sign that Apple is venturing into more environmental conscious programs.
