Apple discontinues two iMac models, indicates redesign and upgrade soon
So, for now, you can only get hold of the 256GB storage model for the 12.5-inch iMac. This came along with 1TB and 512GB models, both of which are no longer available.
Just earlier this month we saw Apple discontinuing its iMac Pro desktop computer. At that time, the online store mentioned “while supplies last” for the base model, indicating that the device is no more into production. However, the company is expanding this idea today as it discontinues two iMac models as well.
As noticed by Macrumors website, Apple has discontinued two options of the 21.5-inch iMac computer on the online store. So, for now, you can only get hold of the 256GB storage model for the 12.5-inch iMac. This came along with 1TB and 512GB models, both of which are no longer available. There is still a 27-inch iMac with 512GB storage option. This also means that the cheapest iMac you can get right now costs $1,099.

As for the ‘Pro' model, although Apple discontinued the iMac Pro earlier this month, you can still buy the Mac Pro at $5,999 starting price.
It is worth mentioning that Apple discontinuing its iMac models, strongly indicates that these might get an upgrade in terms of Apple Silicon processor and looks, really soon.
There have already been some rumours around it. According to a report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman in January, Apple's Face ID recognition software, which was originally said to be coming in this year's iMac redesign, is now pushed to the second iteration of the redesign. Bloomberg has previously reported that the redesigned iMac models will come with slimmer bezels around the display and no metal chin. The device is also said to look similar to the Pro Display XDR monitor that Apple launched in 2019.
