Apple pulls more iMac models ahead of possible M1 refresh

1 Mins read

Apple’s spring cleaning checklist seems primarily devoted to the iMac this year. According to MacRumors, after discontinuing the iMac Pro earlier this month, it’s now scrapped the 512GB and 1TB SSD configurations of the 21.5-inch workstation. However, you can still buy 256GB SSD, and 1TB Fusion drive versions.

Since last month, the two configurations have reportedly been unavailable for purchase on Apple’s website and have now been removed altogether. It’s still unclear why Apple decided to stop selling them, but it could be that it’s simply shedding some inventory ahead of the release of a new iMac range. Bloomberg previously reported working on two new models that cut down on the current iMac’s display bezel, prominent chin, and curved back. The new all-in-one desktops will also pack Apple’s in-house M1 chips due to its ongoing move away from Intel’s processors.

At the same time, Apple may also be grappling with the same supply shortages that have disrupted the broader tech industry. Alongside a pandemic-induced shortfall in semiconductors, the leading SSD supplier, Samsung, has been forced to stall operations at its chip fab in Texas due to power outages caused by extreme weather conditions.
