iMac Pro Officially Discontinued. The iMac Pro has officially been removed from Apple’s website as well as the Apple Store app. This comes after the company announced two weeks ago that the iMac would only be available “while supplies last” and would not be replaced.
The iMac Pro had briefly gone out of stock a few times over the last two weeks, but now it is officially gone for good. When you visit the dedicated iMac Pro URL, it now redirects to the Mac homepage on Apple’s website. The iMac Pro was also once featured along the navigation bar of Apple’s Mac website, but that has now been removed as well.

iMac Pro Officially Discontinued
Apple in March confirmed that the iMac Pro has been discontinued, with no additional updates or refreshes planned going forward. Current iMac Pro stock will be available only as long as supplies last, with Apple already selling out of the machine in the United States and Canada.
It’s not clear if more stock will become available before the iMac Pro is removed from Apple’s site entirely, but supplies are running low. The iMac Pro is priced at $4,999 and features four-year-old hardware, so we do not recommend purchasing one.
Apple first released the iMac Pro in December 2017, and then did not provide any significant updates beyond minor hardware tweaks. With the iMac Pro being discontinued, Apple recommends that those who need a “pro” level desktop machine check out the current 27-inch iMac.
Apple quietly discontinued the iMac Pro two weeks ago, removing all build-to-order options and saying that available inventory would only be available while supplies lasted. The available supply of iMac Pro has now run out for good (via MacRumors).
The iMac Pro was introduced in 2017 to offer more powerful all-in-ones to high-end customers wanting workstation Intel Xeon CPUs. The chassis was identical apart from a more efficient cooling system and the space gray aluminum finish. In 2020, Apple slightly adjusted the iMac Pro configurations following the introduction of the new consumer iMac.
The 2020 iMac also began encroaching on the iMac Pro in terms of performance, a trend that later continued with the introduction of the first M1 Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air models in November.
Apple does still have the iMac Pro available from its refurbished store, and it remains available from select third-party retailers. With that in mind, however, we can’t recommend spending the money on one right now. Apple is in the midst of transitioning the Mac lineup to Apple Silicon, and a redesigned iMac lineup is expected sooner rather than later.
Two weeks after hiring: sales stop
Two weeks ago, Apple confirmed what some had already suspected: the iMac Pro is no longer receiving updates and will disappear from the range. Apple still wanted to sell off remaining stocks, but no longer wanted to manufacture configured variants. The final end came faster than expected. In the USA, Apple has already eliminated the corresponding menu item from the online store, in other countries the entry still exists, but it does not refer to anything. For example, if you click in Germany on iMac Pro, you will be redirected to the overview page of all M1 Macs
