Apple Pulling The Plug On The Only Computer Monitor It Makes

It looks like Apple is done with the standalone monitor business: the company confirmed it won’t make any more Thunderbolt Displays, so once the existing inventory is sold, that’s all there is.

The Thunderbolt Display, while popular, hasn’t been updated in the five years it’s existed as Apple’s one and only monitor. It’s still for sale for $999 in the Apple store — a price that will stay steady until the end — while supplies last, the company says.

“We’re discontinuing the Apple Thunderbolt Display,” a company spokesperson confirmed in a statement making the rounds today. “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.”

Those other options won’t be sold by Apple, however, so if you want a monitor for your Mac, you’re on your own. And as for whether or not Apple will be coming out with something to replace the Thunderbolt, that’s still unclear.
