Not even three weeks ago we realized the detail: current iMacs continue to ship without problems, but as soon as you configured a 21.5-inch model with 512 GB or 1 TB SSD storage, that shipment was no longer available.
Now, and on the same day that Apple has officially removed the iMac Pro from its website, we also see how the higher capacity SSD storage options of the iMac have disappeared. It is no longer that they are not sent, it is that the options have directly ceased to exist. You can check it yourself on Apple’s Spanish website. This only happens on the 21.5-inch models, the 27-inch iMac can still handle with 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB of storage. Their shipping times take a week or two, but they do ship. But that the 21.5-inch model can only be bought with 256 GB of SSD storage or 1 TB of Fusion Drive disk raises unavoidable suspicions.
Is it possible that Apple is preparing to launch a refurbished iMac shortly and not in the fall as some sources claim? Or just 21.5-inch iMacs with a lot of SSD storage wasn’t selling and Apple has decided to get rid of them? We have had a lot of sudden changes in the catalog lately. It sounds like Cupertino is preparing to give news.
