According to a report and details Apple has reportedly stopped developing 512GB and 1 terabyte flash media configurations for the 21.5-inch iMac. This may mean that updates come sooner rather than later.

Apple has stopped developing 512GB and 1TBSSD configurations for the iMac 4, according to longtime familiar source sources familiar with Apple’s supply chain. In addition, both models are listed on Apple’s website as “not currently available”. The 256GB SSD and 1TB Fusion Drive models have lead time but are still available for purchase at the time of writing.
Given the current availability of other iMac 4 models, it’s not clear why Apple stopped production of these two models, but the suspension was announced in 2021 before it was announced. It is possible. Apple has repeatedly said it will work on the newly designed iMac of 2021, including a model that replaces the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs.
The design of the new iMac is reminiscent of the Pro Display XDR and can be offered in colorful new options. Historically, in the early stages of the Intel transition from PowerPC to Intel and Apple’s Apple Silicon migration, Apple designed the existing enclosure for the first model before adjusting its appearance to accommodate new technologies.
Theoretically, Apple could refresh the IMac by making the iFax Drive and 256GB models available to academic and corporate users. Currently, there is no final release timeline for the latest iMac, except at some point in 2021.
Apple last updated its 21.5-inch iMac in early 2019 with faster processors, more powerful storage options, and better graphics capabilities. Meanwhile, the 27-inch iMac was updated in August 2020.
