Apple discontinues the Intel-powered iMac Pro, reviving rumors of an upcoming new version with a different platform

Apple has abruptly updated its current iMac Pro sales page to reflect the fact that apparently only its base model is in stock. This has led to speculation that a new version of this PC, perhaps even with an in-house chipset instead of the last remaining unit's 10-core Intel Xeon W-series processor, is on the way. However, the OEM might be wrapping its product cycle up for some other reason.

The latest iMac Pro launched in late 2020, with a 10-core Intel Xeon W-series processor, the Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics and a 27-inch Retina 5K P3 display. Despite this, its page on apple.com has been amended to revoke its additional configuration options, and now bears a new "while supplies last" tagline. Therefore, the PC is pretty ostensibly being discontinued already; the question now is why.

The stock update has led to speculation that Apple is now preparing a new generation of iMac Pro already. Going by the latest leaks, these machines might emerge in a new range of colors: a design choice the OEM has not taken for its series for quite some time. An updated display with XDR is also just about plausible here.

The "new iMac Pro" internals have been guessed at less often; however, there may now be scope for a top-end Apple all-in-one with an M1 or M1X chipset. One leak has hinted at an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor instead, although this might be too much to hope for. Then again, going in-house might spare the next-gen iMac Pro its Thunderbolt ports.

Some 5K Retina iMacs are also to be found on Amazon

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
