Apple discontinues iMac Pro

Apple has officially discontinued the iMac Pro and will not be introducing new models.

The Apple Store listing for the iMac Pro was updated to include a ‘While supplies last’ title and all customisation was removed. Apple now recommends professional users buy a 27-inch iMac or Mac Pro.

The 27-inch iMac has a 5K display with True Tone, 10th-generation Intel processors, up to 128GB RAM, up to 8TB storage and a 1080p webcam with studio microphones. It was last refreshed in August 2020.

Users can now only purchase the base model, which has an Intel Xeon W chip, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD storage and Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics.

The iMac Pro launched in December 2017 and has only seen minor tweaks to the configurations since, with no substantial updates. It was regarded as a ‘stop gap’ product while Apple developed the latest Mac Pro.

Apple will not be updating the iMac Pro with Apple silicon chips. Instead, major updates to the iMac line will be coming this year, including a redesigned body, M1X or M2 processors and new display sizes.
