Apple is quietly setting up its 21.5-inch iMac

You’ll have to go big if you want an Intel-powered Mac desktop. 9to5Mac reports that Apple has quietly discontinued the 21.5-inch iMac about six months after the introduction of the M1 model. The company had sold a lone dual-core model for $ 1,099 through a relatively hard-to-find site, but YouTube Tech Good noticed that it disappeared sometime on October 29th.

We have asked Apple for a comment on the move. The company has a long history of keeping older Macs for a while before quietly dropping them, but it rarely elaborates on those decisions. A notable exception came in March this year when Apple confirmed it was winding down sales of the iMac Pro.

This will not excite educational customers who may still want the 21.5-inch iMac for its relatively low price, small size, and older ports. You’ll have to buy at least a 27-inch iMac or an older Mac mini for $ 1,099 if you’re not ready to jump into Apple Silicon. However, this signals Apple’s confidence in its processors – it clearly believes that their regular desktop customers are ready to switch.
