27-inch iMac Discontinued by Apple Soon After Announcing the Mac Studio and Studio Display
Apple announced the Mac Studio and the Studio Display at its Peek Performance event yesterday.

The 27-inch iMac rested alongside the 24-inch M1 iMac and it is one of the last few products to feature an Intel processor.
Now, users can simply buy the 27-inch Studio Display and connect it to any Mac. The Studio Display also comes with a 12MP webcam that enables Center Stage.
