Apple quietly stops the 21.5-inch Intel-powered iMac

Apple has apparently pulled its 21.5-inch Intel-based iMac off the shelves (via MacRygter). Its interruption does not come as a big surprise now that Apple is moving from using Intel processors to its internal M1 chip.

The 21.5-inch iMac was still available after Apple’s October 18 Unleashed event – it did not appear to disappear until sometime this week, according to MacRygter. The $ 1,099 21.5-inch iMac, which came with a 2.3 GHz dual-core 7th generation Intel Core i5 and an Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, is no longer on the list of available iMacs at Apple’s online store. A “Buy” button also does not appear for the 21.5-inch iMac on Apple’s product comparison page.

We contacted Apple to confirm the changes, but did not receive an immediate response. However, the company confirmed this MacRygter that the machine is about to be discontinued and will not be sold through Apple’s online store or in its retail stores.

iMac 21.5-inch no Buy button

Apple has not eliminated its entire range of Intel-based iMacs yet – it still sells the 27-inch Intel-based iMac, which has up to a 3.6 GHz 10-core Intel Core i9 CPU, at a starting price of $ 1799 , 99. As MacRygter Note that you can still purchase a refurbished 21.5-inch iMac from Apple’s online store.

In March, Apple stopped the 512GB and 1TB configurations of the 21.5-inch iMac, so the company has been slowly phasing out this model for a while. And since Apple debuted its thinner, more colorful M1-powered iMacs in April, it only makes sense for Apple to clear some space on its shelves.
