Apple has added the iPad 2 to its list of “vintage and obsolete products.”

Both the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi/cellular versions of the tablet are included in the updated list, which means that Apple will no longer offer hardware service or parts. The exceptions: Consumers in Turkey and California can still receive service and parts.

Apple, which updated the list Tuesday, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Then-CEO Steve Jobs announced the iPad 2 in March 2011. Jobs surprised the crowd with his appearance at the unveiling because he was on medical leave at the time. (Jobs died in October of that year after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.)

The iPad 2 debuted at $499 with 16GB of storage and a Wi-Fi connection. 3G cellular connection cost an extra $130. Walmart still sells the iPad 2 — for $76.

Apple revamped its iPad Air and iPad Mini in March. Both devices have Pencil support and the A12 processor in the iPhone XS.
