Apple has stopped selling some variants of the 21.5-inch iMac. In addition, the iMac Pro has now completely disappeared from the scene. This may mean that the new iMac 2021 is on the way!
iMacs are running out
The 21.5-inch iMac with 4K display is still in the Apple range, but since this weekend you have less choice than before in terms of storage. The versions with 512 GB or 1 TB SSD drive are no longer sold. If you now want an iMac, you only have the choice of an iMac with 256 GB SSD storage or 1 TB Fusion Drive storage. You can still adjust the amount of memory and the type of processor. The question is, should you want to buy a new iMac right now?
The 21.5-inch iMac is not the only iMac with which ‘something’ is clearly going on. Last week, the iMac Pro – the space gray iMac for professional users – was only available ‘ while supplies last ‘. This Mac has now been sold out at Apple and has been removed from the website. Running out of iMac stock means no more new iMacs of that type will be created. This may be to make way for a new iMac. The fact that something is wrong with two iMacs at the same time reinforces the idea that something new is coming.
New iMac 2021 on the way?
Indeed, there have been rumors about a new generation of iMacs for some time now. The iMac would be completely redesigned for the first time in years. The screen will probably look more like an iPad Pro or Air, with a narrow border around it. The screen may also be a bit larger, but because of the bezel, the iMac remains fairly compact. The new iMac is expected to be available in the same colors as the iPad Air: silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue.
Apple is also switching from Intel to its own M1 chip in future iMacs. Or rather, to its successor. Apple would work on a chip with 16 high-performance cores and 4 energy-efficient high-efficiency cores: 20 cores in total. Now there are still 8. In short, if you are looking for a new iMac, it is always wise to wait a little longer.
