Apple is discontinuing sales of the Thunderbolt Display, a much-loved, though rarely updated monitor. Although it’s still available in the Apple store (for the not super low price of $999), once current inventory is sold out, that’ll be the end of Apple producing standalone displays for its computers.
For now, at least. There’s no word on whether or not Apple intends to replace it with something in the future. We’ve been half-hoping for Apple to release a display with a 5K resolution to match the current high-end iMac for some time now, but there have been no hints that will happen — and the amount of throughput required to run an external 5K monitor would be difficult on most of the current lineup of Mac laptops. Though perhaps a future model that has embedded graphics cards could happen, someday, maybe.
