When Apple launched the 24-inch iMac earlier this year, the company effectively had three different iMac models to choose from – the 21.5-inch model, 24-inch model, and 27-inch model. It seems like a lot of unnecessary configurations and we speculated that the launch of the 24-inch model would eventually spell the demise of the 21.5-inch model.
It looks like we were right because according to YouTuber Tech God, it was discovered that Apple has officially discontinued the 21.5-inch iMac model. If you were to head on over to Apple’s website, you’ll find that the 21.5-inch model is no longer listed and that Apple is only offering the 24-inch and 27-inch iMacs.

This discontinuation seems to come on the heels of a rumor claiming that Apple might have a new iMac model planned for the first half of 2022 that could pack either the M1 Pro or M1 Max chipset. While it was not stated what size the display of the new iMac will be, there is a good chance it could be a refresh of the 27-inch model.
Right now with the 21.5-inch iMac discontinued, the 27-inch iMac is the only Intel iMac left in the lineup, but we expect that will change in 2022 once the new model is launched.
