Say Goodbye to the iMac Pro: Apple Discontinues Computer Line


Apple tends to be a favorite among digital media professionals, and for more reasons than we have time to list here.

But it looks like Cupertino is taking one option off of the board for consumers, and it is a professional-grade piece of equipment at that.

Debuting in 2017, the history of the iMac Pro will be short, indeed. Mac Rumors started to notice that Apple had placed a “While Supplies Last” notice on the landing page for the iMac Pro. As DP Review explains, this is something the company typically does when it is about to discontinue a product. Naturally, Mac Rumors published an article about the notice on March 5, receiving a confirmation via Apple on March 6th that the iMac Pro would, indeed, be discontinued.

The representative told Mac Rumors: “Apple says the latest 27-inch iMac introduced in August is the preferred choice for the vast majority of pro iMac users, and said customers who need even more performance and expandability can choose the Mac Pro.”

The Mac Pro line will continue and should give consumers all of the power they could possibly ever need.

As those of us who have followed Apple are well aware, the company is now relying upon its own chipsets after moving away from Intel. It is expected that the company will debut new iMacs and Mac Pros that continue this trend sometime in the near future.
