Apple, which changed the computer industry by switching to ARM processors last year, continues to slowly pull the plug of Intel computers. The 21.5” iMac model has come to an end.
Apple has also updated the iMac model with the M1 processor in the past months. Introduced instead of the 21.5” Intel models, the new 24” iMac debuted with the M1 processor and a brand new design. However, you could still buy the 21.5” Intel model by trying hard enough on the Apple site.
The 21.5″ iMac, which sold for $1,099, had a dual-core Intel i5 processor. Sold at a very high price, this iMac disappeared from the site on October 29. There was no comment from Apple, but it’s perfectly normal for the firm to quietly remove products from sale. Apple, which announced in March that it would reduce the production of the iMac Pro, continues to unplug Macs with Intel processors every day.
Apple is expected to abandon Intel processors completely before the end of 2022. More powerful iMac, iMac Pro, Mac mini, and Mac Pro models are also being updated with the M series. It seems quite possible that we will see new model iMacs in early 2022. Let’s see how Apple’s commitment to Apple Silicon will affect the industry.
