Apple Stops Maintaining Its Printer Compatibility List

Howard Oakley:

One of the standard questions I get asked is whether macOS 10.x supports printer Y, or sometimes scanner Z. Users like to know such basic facts, which can save them messing about trying to get an unsupported printer working. For several years, Apple has maintained a Support Note which details all those models for which you can expect macOS to obtain drivers through software update.

Apparently, the effort of letting us know this valuable practical information is now too much.

Update (2018-10-22): Miles Wolbe:

I scoured for the final printer driver versions, preferring to archive them locally rather than rely on Software Update.

File under: yet another example that Apple doesn't give a shit, even though it would cost them pennies to do so.
