Apple discontinued the iMac Professional earlier this 12 months and is now discontinuing the accompanying area gray iMac equipment as nicely. The area gray Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse, and the Magic Trackpad are being discontinued. These equipment had been launched solely for the iMac Professional when it was launched in 2017 and Apple then began promoting them individually within the March of 2018.
Noticed by MacRumours on the Apple Retailer on-line, the area gray Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard, and the Magic Trackpad are all going to be accessible “whereas provides final”. There isn’t a point out of precisely how lengthy these provides will final however one can count on that it would occur quickly. In case you continue to need any of those equipment and miss ordering them from the Apple Retailer, there may be all the time Amazon. As 9to5Mac factors out, these area gray choices are all “available” on Amazon and infrequently “at decrease costs than Apple”.
Apple discontinuing the area gray equipment is sensible. The corporate launched the brand new M1 iMac final month together with a brand new model of the Magic Keyboard with the Contact ID and redesigned, vibrant variations of the Magic Mouse and the Magic Trackpad. So the older area gray equipment don’t match the brand new, extra vibrant choices. For now, although, these new equipment are solely being offered with the brand new iMac and usually are not accessible individually.
Simply because Apple is discontinuing the older area gray equipment that doesn’t imply that the corporate is rarely going to roll out an area gray iMac sooner or later once more. One can count on Apple to introduce an area gray iMac with its new chip (M1 or M2) and matching up to date equipment that embrace Contact ID and different upgrades. For now, although, this isn’t nice information for area gray MacBook customers who is perhaps trying to exchange any of their matching equipment.
