Apple has seemingly stopped producing both the 512GB and 1TB SSD 21.5-inch iMac configurations, which may indicate a refreshed design is on the horizon.

Both of these models are currently listed as ‘unavailable’ on the Apple website, though other iMac 4K models are currently still available to buy. No official statement has been given for the removal of these specific designs, but there has previously been speculation that Apple is refreshing existing iMacs for 2021 to replace both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch styles.

This information was leaked to Apple Insider by a “long-time source”, but as with any unofficial information we shouldn’t take this industry information as gospel.  

We’re not expecting a new exterior design given its history when updating from PowerPC to Intel, and the more recent updates to MacBooks to Apple Silicon. The existing pattern suggests that the hardware itself will be updated while leaving the current chassis as is until any exterior updates need to be made. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, as they say.

Will we see the M1 iMac in 2021?
