Apple appears to be discontinuing the iMac Pro, now only available ‘while supplies last’
Apple appears to be discontinuing the iMac Pro, with the online Apple Store no longer selling custom configurable models, and the base configuration machine showing with the tagline ‘while supplies last’.
The iMac Pro was first announced in 2017, launching at the time as the ‘most powerful Mac ever’. It featured the first Space Gray casing on an iMac, a 5K built-in display, 8-core Xeon processors, Radeon Vega graphics, 32GB ECC memory, and 10GB Ethernet as well as four Thunderbolt 3 ports with support for up to two 5K displays, priced at $4999.
Apple quietly released an update to its iMac Pro, adding a new 256GB RAM and Radeon Pro Vega 64X graphics option to the machine in 2019 before lowering the price of its high-end storage upgrades a couple of months later.
The rumored discontinuation comes as reports point to Apple launching its first major upgrade and redesign to the iMac since 2012 in the coming months.
Reports suggest the next iMac will feature “one of the biggest visual updates to any Apple product this year,” with a full redesign with new color options, Apple Silicon over Intel, an edge-to-edge display, major performance improvements, and more.
It isn’t certain that the iMac Pro will go completly. Apple could simply be selling its remaining stock ahead of a new model coming soon however, it is unusual to see the ‘while supplies last’ tag on a product from Apple, which hints that this may be more than simply signaling an update is on the way.
