iMac Pro Officially Discontinued, Removed From Apple's Site and No Longer Available for Purchase

The iMac Pro has been officially discontinued as of this afternoon, with the machine no longer available for purchase from the online Apple Store.

The ‌iMac‌ Pro went out of stock in the United States and other countries earlier today, and now, the ‌iMac‌ Pro page has been removed entirely from Apple's website.

With the ‌iMac‌ Pro page eliminated, there is no longer an option to buy an ‌iMac‌ Pro in the United States or in any other country, and the machine is no longer listed in the ‌Apple Store‌ app, nor does a search bring up ‌iMac‌ Pro listings.

Apple has also changed the Mac compatibility filter for the ‌iMac‌ Pro to say "2017" instead of "2017 and later," making it clear that there will be no more ‌iMac‌ Pro models in the future.

Apple first announced plans to discontinue the ‌iMac‌ Pro in early March, and said at the time that the ‌iMac‌ Pro would be available for purchase "while supplies last," but supplies have apparently dried up.

Though Apple has removed the ‌iMac‌ Pro from its website following its discontinuation, there are still a variety of ‌iMac‌ Pro models available from Apple's refurbished store.

Apple recommends that users who are looking for a high-end Mac choose the 27-inch ‌iMac‌, which was last refreshed in August 2020. The current 27-inch ‌iMac‌ configured with a 10-core Core i9 processor is faster and more affordable than the standard ‌iMac‌ Pro with a 10-core Xeon W processor was.

Apple is also working on a redesigned iMac that will feature slimmer bezels, a Pro Display XDR-style design, and Apple silicon chips, so those who are seeking a powerful desktop machine may want to wait until the new ‌iMac‌ models come out later this year before making a purchase.

My regular iMac just got a lift in status. No Pro to make me look bad now.

Overpriced, no upgrade path, poor airflow/cooling.

SO LONG! You won't be missed!
Actually, the iMac Pro had great airflow and cooling. It's the 27" iMac (non-Pro) that has poor airflow / cooling.

I do find it strange all the negativity and ‘won’t be missed’ posts - which I can only imagine are from people who have never owned one.

i’ve had my 8 core for nearly 3 years and it has never missed a beat. Yes it cost a lot, but it was the best MacOS Option available at the time. In fact as I’m after an intel upgrade I was contemplating buying an 18 core model just before they were discontinued. But missed the boat!!

why you might ask? Well for intel based workflow, the simplicity of all in one and the bang for buck compared to a Mac Pro. I don’t need the expandability.

yes of course it was a stopgap. Yes of course it cost a lot of money. But it is near silent, aesthetically pleasing on the desk, a little different and has great performance.

A key difference i think in the choice and experience is that is was bought as a business tool. Paid for itself in under 6 months, and it was not a price sensitive decision as it seems to be for many of the complainers. It was a great investment and as earnt 30x what it cost to buy so far. Yes maybe i could have waited months for an mac pro or a cheaper imac with similar spec or built a threadripper machine. But in business time is money.... you buy the best for your business use case at the time of purchae. If it makes financial sense that’s all that matters.

there’s no sentiment about a machine’s branding (that the imac pro only lasted 1gen) or hope of false economies by waiting of going a cheaper route.

that is why the put the Pro in the name. It is aimed at business purchasers who can write it off as a tool against tax and who will make money from it.

i don’t care if they add the Pro label to the next gen imac. So long as it runs cool, fast, quiet and works well for the intended workflow.

i hope the Mac Pro gets one last intel speed bump or spec adjustment before it goes the same way. I know a very slim chance!. Sure there will be an Mx machine that trounces it at some point. But I want onenlast high power intel mac to protect my workflow. I’ll buy the AS machine to run alongside it for sure. And when the time is right retire the intel machines.

thing to remember is it is bit the cost if the machine today that matters - but the money you can’t make whilst waiting. If that consideration does not impact a purchase cecision. Then a ‘Pro’ machine is not really needed anyway is it? That’s why they made the regular iMac. For consumers.

PS: luckily I now have the chance to buy the 28core MP for not a lot more than the 18core iMac would have cost me, so fate was on my side I suppose lol.
