Apple is about to cease repair support for a handful of products as it prepares to designate some Apple TV, iPod, and display designs as ‘‘ outdated’ a day prior to it’s iPhone event next month.

The items getting obsolete status include the original Apple TV, the Apple LED Movie theater Show (24-inch), Apple Movie theater Show (30-inch DVI Early 2007), the 2nd and 3rd generation iPod touch, the Third and 5th generation iPod nano, and iPod classic. All the items become obsolete (or vintage where appropriate) throughout all of Apple’s markets around the world (as kept in mind in the screenshot of a leaked internal file below) and will certainly no longer be qualified for service or hardware support through Apple’s retailers or third-party provider.

The products are set up to become outdated early next month– just one day prior to Apple is expected to hold its press event introducing brand-new iPhones– on September 8th. Apple is also believed to be planning to reveal the long-awaited next-generation Apple TV set top box that we’ve specificed thoroughly.

Devices from Apple generally get the “Outdated” status 5-7 years after manufacturing has actually been terminated. Apple’s “Vintage” status only uses to California and Turkey, where the business is required to continue offering support. When a product becomes obsolete, it no longer provides service or hardware repair services through its own Apple retail shops or authorized provider.

Apple maintains a list of Outdated and Vintage status products on its site. And here’s Apple’s full list planned for September:
