Apple discontinues Thunderbolt Display

2011 called and it wants its monitor back:

“We’re discontinuing the Apple Thunderbolt Display,” Apple told iMore. “It will be available through Apple.com, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers while supplies last. There are a number of great third-party options available for Mac users.”

It’s possible that Apple will release a standalone display later this year—it’s hard to see why the company wouldn’t sell a high-margin external display product if it’s got one ready—but there are some technical hurdles to overcome. It may also be true that Apple’s just out of the standalone display business. (It is, at least for now.)
