Yes, the Apple CD drive plays Blu-Ray discs. The lack of compatibility with the Apple CD drive was because there wasn’t format support for it, but now Blu-Ray is here to make it possible! Remember not to dispose of any old optical discs after the disposal date; CDs and DVDs don’t disappear overnight and they’re bad for the environment! Now that we have more Blu-ray drives coming out and people using them too, please be mindful of how you’re disposing of them later on down the road. Thank you again! Have a great day!!
