Apple added a “while out of stock” notification to its iMac Pro product page worldwide late last night and removed all options to upgrade the computer, leaving only the standard configuration that can be ordered.
We have since confirmed with Apple that the iMac Pro will no longer be available when supplies are exhausted. Apple says the latest 27-inch iMac, introduced in August, is the preferred choice for most pro iMac users, and said customers who need even more performance and scalability can choose the Mac Pro.
The latest 27-inch iMac features a 5K True Tone display and nano-textured glass option, up to 10-generation 10-core Intel Core i9 processor, up to 128GB RAM, up to 8TB storage, up to AMD Graphics Radeon Pro 5700 XT, 10 Gigabit Ethernet option, 1080p camera with higher resolution, improved speakers and microphones, etc.
While Intel’s 27-inch iMac is currently Apple’s recommendation, rumors suggest that a redesigned iMac with Apple’s next-generation silicone chip and a design inspired by Apple’s high-end Pro Display XDR will be released later this year. customers may want to be patient. It is unclear whether Apple’s silicon version of the iMac Pro will ever be released, but it seems unlikely at this time.
Released in December 2017, the iMac Pro did not receive significant hardware updates in its lifetime.
