Tech giant Apple has parted ways with two different iMac computers. The devices, which quietly disappeared, surprised users.
Apple also made a decision earlier this month for its iMac Pro that would upset consumers. It was said that sales of the model were stopped because the consumables were depleted. Now it’s clear that two more models have parted ways with the company.
21.5-inch iMac devices have removed two storage options
Apple has given up two options for its 21.5-inch iMac computer in its online store, Macrumors has revealed. It was observed that the device in question is currently sold with only 256 GB of storage options. The removal of the previously available variants of 512 GB and 1 TB attracted attention.
Consumers looking to buy an Apple computer with 512GB of storage turned their eyes to the 27-inch iMac.
So why is Apple making the decision to end its devices in a row? Analysts say this is because the company wants to upgrade its devices to Apple Silicon processors. Estimates suggest that some older and still-popular products will be reviewed and resold with the next generation of hardware.
The new iMac models, thought to be made with Pro Display XDR monitors, will replace a curved rear design with a flat surface. Two versions are thought to replace the 21.5 and 27-inch models; they are said to measure 23 – 24 inches. Moving away from Intel’s chipsets, the company will adopt Silicon processors. This will result in significant improvements in performance and efficiency.
For now, it’s unclear when these devices will return. But Apple will likely restructure iMacs and bring them to consumers with the hardware expected later this year.
