The iMac Pro, one of the most powerful computers produced by Apple, will no longer be manufactured. The company is halting production of the iMac Pro, according to an official statement by Apple.
According to Macrumors, iMac Pro production will no longer be made. The two reasons behind this decision are explained. Introduced in August, the 27-inch iMac model is more preferred than the iMac Pro. It is stated that users who need higher hardware can choose the Mac Pro model.
The company has also updated statements on its official site following the decision. On the iMac Pro sales page on the Apple Turkey official site, “valid until stocks run out."added the phrase. It was also announced that all additions that could be made to the device had also been removed and that only the standard version was sold. Moreover, there is currently no sale of iMac Pro from the Apple Turkey site.
iMac Pro has a 10-core Intel Xeon W processor with a speed of 3.0 GHz. Apart from this, it has 32 GB of memory and 1 TB of SSD. Memory that can be upgraded to 256 GB with configuration settings no longer seems to be used. IMac Pro, available to users from £ 57,439 with 8 GB Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics processor and 27-inch Retina 5K display, as we mentioned, cannot be purchased for now.
As Apple explained, iMac Pro was not a model that was much preferred by users. After the news, there are also users who say that he has had a good life so far. The iMac Pro, which went on sale in November 2017, may even have caused a small loss to the company in its short life.
Is the M1 chip iMac on its way?
the cessation of production of the iMac Pro may also be related to new Mac models. It's a move the company is expected to add to other Mac models the new M1 chip it has developed using Apple silicon. It has long been a rumor that a new M1 chip model of the iMac, especially the best-selling iMac, will go on sale. It would be wrong to assume that announcements are getting closer with this new development.
Although it is not exactly the same as the iMac Pro, a device with equipment that can work for most professionals is even cheaper than half the price of the iMac Pro.
However, if the claims are true and an M1-chip iMac is soon up for sale, it is not known in what direction the change in prices will take. In addition, a new iMac Pro model with M1 chips could also be introduced, although it seems very unlikely. This move, which seems so far away, will not surprise us at all if it comes from Apple, which has released a high-end headset without any publicity.
