The US-based tech company Apple is no longer making the iMac Pro, which was once the most-powerful computer it offered.

If you are looking to lay your hands on the all-in-one-Mac, you can still do so for a limited time. The $4,999 standard model can still be purchased on Apple’s website, but only till the existing stock lasts. Once existing inventory runs out, the iMac Pro will no longer be available, Apple confirmed.

Apple iMac Pro

Apple released the iMac Pro in 2017, in which it was described as “the most powerful Mac ever.” The all-in-one computer aimed at creatives and professionals feature advanced capabilities for graphics and 3D rendering. However, the machine hasn’t gotten any major updates in the past few years.

In August last year, Apple debuted its 27-inch iMac, which is the popular choice among most customers. The iPhone maker added that the current model can be customized to address the needs of professionals.

But for those desiring a boost in performance and expandability, Apple recommends the Mac Pro, a device that exceeds the capabilities of the iMac Pro.

New lineup

According to reports, Apple will launch a new lineup of iMacs this year. The US based tech giant has plans to bring all-new iMacs including a refreshed model of iMac Pro to replace its 21.5-inch and 27-inch models.

Reports suggest that the iMac Pro, set to launch later this year, could be powered by Apple’s own silicon chipset. That being the case, the discontinuation of the current iMac Pro lineup is justified. While the tech giant is yet to officially confirm the launch of the new iMac, reports suggest that Apple could release the new iMacs as soon as March this year, probably at its upcoming Spring event.
