iMac Pro is Out of Stock Again in U.S. After Being Discontinued

Earlier this month, Apple confirmed that the iMac Pro is being discontinued. The standard configuration of the computer has remained available "while supplies last," but even this configuration is out of stock again in multiple countries.

iMac Pro Alert Feature
Apple's online store lists the iMac Pro as "Currently Unavailable" in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and select other countries. The standard iMac Pro remains available across much of the rest of Europe and Asia, but with lengthy shipping estimates. It's likely that iMac Pro availability will continue to fluctuate, but the end of the line is clearly in sight for the computer.

Released in December 2017, the iMac Pro received no substantial hardware refreshes over its lifetime and continues to be sold for $4,999.

Apple said the 27-inch iMac introduced in August 2020 has become the preferred choice for the vast majority of pro iMac users. The latest 27-inch iMac configured with a 10-core Core i9 processor is both faster and less expensive than the standard iMac Pro with a 10-core Xeon W processor. Apple said customers who need even more performance and expandability can choose the Mac Pro, released in December 2019.

For customers who are still interested in the iMac Pro, Apple recently added a variety of configurations to its refurbished store.

Apple is rumored to be working on a redesigned iMac with Apple silicon for release later this year, so many customers may want to exercise patience. The new iMac's design is said to be inspired by Apple's high-end Pro Display XDR, with a flat back, slimmer bezels around the display, and no metal "chin" below the display.

So people are still buying these.

iMac Pro was a terrible value; high price, poor performer (thanks to non-existent cooling), zero upgrade path, gimped GPU.

So long iMac Pro, you won't be missed.
I gather you do not have one?

And yet it's still the best performing Apple machine I've ever owned. By a long shot. ??

I've mentioned this in another thread already, but I bought one of the original iMac Pro base/standard configurations, shortly after it was released. For me, it was to do exactly what Apple marketed it for; replacing one of the cylinder shaped Mac Pros. I feel like it did everything promised as a decent upgrade from one of them. I also agree that the list price is way too high, though. I only bought mine because Micro Center was doing a $1,000 off sale on them at the time, making it a far more sensible purchase.

Another plus on the iMac Pro, back then, is that Apple allowed buying the same AppleCare 3 year extended warranty plan for one that covered any of the standard iMacs. I rarely pay for extended warranties on anything, but that deal seemed great when you consider the repair cost for pretty much anything that might go wrong on an iMac Pro. I was really surprised Apple didn't have a more costly AppleCare plan just for the iMac Pro, but they didn't....

Could not disagree more. I'm fortunate enough to get to use pretty much any piece of kit I want for the most part, and my couple of iMac Pro units have been by FAR my most favourite pieces of Apple gear I've ever owned.

The 4 TB ports + 10Gbe were incredibly useful, and the units scaled really well for stuff that I did every day - lots of virtualisation and the like. One of mine has gone now (the smaller 8 core), and it will be missed.

It's been a fantastic solid work-horse. I've also got access to some i9 current gen iMacs too - they're also great machines of course, and in some respects faster than the 'Pro, but I miss those TB ports and how much the units can do before they slow down.

Loved them, great bits of kit.

My guess is that the new 27” (30”?) with the M2 or whatever they end up calling it will be more powerful than the iMac Pro, hence it would be redundant to have it around still stealing away some market share.
