The end for the iMac Pro: Apple only sells stocks

Since the end of last week, Apple has only been selling the iMac Pro, which was introduced in 2017, while stocks last. In addition, you can only buy the standard version via the Apple Store on the tech giant's website. Individual adjustments by the customer are no longer possible. Compared to the US magazine MacRumors, Apple approvedthat the iMac Pro will no longer be sold as a product for the time being. The reasons for this are the popularity of the regular 27-inch iMac and the ability to put together a Mac Pro when more power is needed. You can find more details here.

Apple iMac Pro: Professional iMac to be discontinued in 2021

It is not yet clear whether an iMac Pro with Apple Silicon will ever come out. The only thing that is certain is that Apple has placed the note "while stocks last" on the product page of the current model on the website of the online shop. In addition, the professional iMac is no longer adaptable, but can only be used in the standard configuration (10 Core Intel CPU with 3 GHz, 32 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD memory, 8 GB graphics memory, 27 inch 5K display, etc.) for € 5.499. This is a further step by Apple towards converting the entire Mac range to its own SoC versions and away from Intel chips by 2022. The iMac Pro was presented at WWDC 2017.

Alternatives for iMac Pro: Apple recommends iMac and Mac Pro

In the MacRumors source linked above, you will find a reference to the fact that Apple refers to the 27 inch iMac as an alternative for the iMac Pro - should the standard equipment not suit you - as well as the Mac Pro for professional performance. Both are not yet available with Apple Silicon, but that will certainly change by the end of 2022. It is not yet clear whether, when and how long they will be sold in parallel with Intel and Apple chips. You currently have the following options:
