9to5Mac reports (and Apple has confirmed to Afrobays) that Apple is winding down sales of its all-in-one workstation. You can still buy one, but it’s limited to the base 10-core Xeon configuration and only available “while supplies last.” – Apple discontinues iMac Pro
Apple appears to have discontinued the iMac Pro, with the Mac model now only available in a single configuration but only “While supplies last.”
An update to the online Apple Store’s iMac Pro listing late on Friday has severely limited the potential purchasing options for the model for customers. The change seems to indicate Apple is in the process of discontinuing the model completely and is in the process of selling off its last units.
The store page includes the text “While supplies last” at the top of the page. While customers were previously able to configure the iMac Pro with different specifications, there’s now only one option available to purchase.
The sole option offers a 3.0GHz 10-core Intel Xeon W processor with 32GB of 2,666MHz ECC memory, 1TB of SSD storage, a Radeon Pro Vega 56 8GB, and 10Gb Ethernet. It is priced at $4,999, with no options to upgrade or customize the order from Apple itself.
It’s not a huge surprise that Apple may be phasing out the iMac Pro; there have been well-sourced reports that the company will be introducing a redesigned iMac and doing a revamp of the Mac Pro sometime this year. Bloomberg reported in January that the overhaul would get rid of the “chin” beneath the screen, and have a flat-back design.
Apple hasn’t officially deemed the iMac Pro as discontinued, but it’s unusual for the company to use “while supplies last” in its product listings. In the meantime, the 27-inch iMac introduced in August is a solid option Apple says is popular among professional iMac users.
Apple launched the iMac Pro in 2017 with an eye toward gaming, VR, and high-end editing and graphics work. It was first unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference that year, with Apple touting it as “the most powerful Mac ever,” replacing the outdated Mac Pro line.
