Apple released the iMac Pro, which it called the “fastest and most powerful Mac ever,” in December 2017.
Jony Ive, Apple’s visionary design guru credited with devising the iMac and iPhone, left the firm in 2019 to form an independent design company. Ive’s exit, along with senior vice president of engineering Dan Riccio’s new assignment, could lead the way for fresh leadership to redefine the future of Apple products, Insider’s Lisa Eadicicco reported.
The iMac has seen steadily declining sales over the last two decades, accounting for a tenth of Apple’s total revenue as of 2018, down from 86.2% of total revenue back in 2000, per Statista.
Apple updated 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs in 2019 with more powerful processors and faster graphics. The update allowed consumers to purchase six-core and eight-core configurations in less expensive iMacs instead of purchasing the more expensive iMac Pro.
