As the Apple Silicon transition progresses, Intel-powered Macs continue to disappear from Apple’s lineup. This week, Apple quietly discontinued the 21.5-inch iMac that runs the Intel processor. This comes six months after the introduction of the redesigned 24-inch iMac with Apple’s M1 chip inside.
Apple continued to sell the entry-level 21.5-inch iMac with Intel drive until this week, although Apple found it quite difficult to find. Until it was discontinued this week, you could still find a 21.5-inch iMac through the Apple Store Online by visiting this page and looking for the 21.5-inch switch at the top.
Interestingly, Apple continues to say that users can visit this link if they search for a 21.5-inch iMac, although the 21.5-inch iMac is no longer listed on that page. Apple has not yet publicly commented on the abolition of the 21.5-inch iMac, which was first spotted by YouTuber known as “Technical God.”
According to the archival data he reviewed 9to5Mac, The 21.5-inch iMac appears to have been removed from the Apple Store Online sometime on Friday, October 29th.
Apple sold the 21.5-inch iMac in a single configuration at a price of $ 1,099 with a 2.3 GHz 7th generation dual-core Intel Core i5 processor. The machine has been heavily criticized for its backward specifications, outdated design and relatively high price. The machine, however, said that it is popular among customers in education.
The redesigned and redesigned M1 iMac was announced in April with a 24-inch screen, a completely new design and much more. It is available in seven different colors and starts at $ 1,299.
Apple is still selling a 27-inch iMac that runs Intel with a previous-generation design. It is rumored that the updated model with the new design and Apple SIlicon inside will be released in the first half of 2022.
