Apple Discontinues Thunderbolt Display; Only Available until Stock Last

Late Thursday Apple announced it’s discontinuing the Thunderbolt Display. In a statement provided to several news sites, the company said remaining inventory is still available through its retail channels and Authorized Resellers, but production has been stopped.

Apple has been selling the Thunderbolt Display since H2, 2011. Apple did not provide any reason as to why it has stopped selling the Thunderbolt Display.
“We’re discontinuing the Apple Thunderbolt Display. It will be available through, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers while supplies last. There are a number of great third-party options available for Mac users,” said an Apple spokesperson.
A previous rumor before WWDC pointed to the company launching a new Thunderbolt Display at the event with a built-in GPU, but that did not happen. The rumored Thunderbolt Display from Apple will feature a 5K display, and it will come with a USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 port. The display will also get a slight design overhaul to look like the new iMac. Speculation still point towards Apple launching this new Thunderbolt Display alongside new MacBooks later this year.

Since there have been no credible leak on this front though, the rumor was largely considered baseless. However, with Apple deciding to stop selling the Thunderbolt Display, it looks like there is some truth to the rumors of the company launching a 5K Thunderbolt Display later this year.

So what do you think ?
