A funny thing happened at the end of Apple’s Mac Studio event. Instead of announcing new models of the 27" iMac and Mac Pro—which is what we were all expecting—Apple announced a new Mac Pro, and that was it. What happened to the 27" iMac? Well, not only was there no new model, but Apple discontinued the existing generation and removed it from its online store. The unexpected move sent a clear signal that the Mac Studio with separate
