We have long been speculating when Apple would update their iMac and Mac Pro, now it seems as it an update might happen in the near future. Sources are reporting that Apple is currently notifying sales channels of shortage in the stock for their iMacs, and the Mac Pro seems to be out of stock according to several websites.
According to AppleInsider, a source says that Apple is informing some distributors not to expect future shipments of the 21.5″ 3.06 GHz iMac, indicating that the model may no longer be in production, this could be an indication that Apple will include a dual-core Intel Core i5 model in addition to the existing quad-core i5 and i7 configurations.
One MacRumors reader has pointed out that Apple’s somewhat-hidden Reserve and Pick Up program is currently showing the company’s Mac Pro models as “Unavailable” for reservation at his local retail store in Canada, possibly hinting at an imminent update.
A quick check of the reservation systems for a handful of Apple retail stores around the United States shows a similar story, with some stores showing complete unavailability of Mac Pro reservations while others continue to offer either the base Quad-Core model or the 8-core model but not both.
We are all very exited for this news and hope Apple really does release an update in the near future, we will keep you updated as news seeps out.
