It’s official, folks! Starting Thursday, the Thunderbolt Display won’t be available in Apple stores, including online and retail locations. Sure, you’ll be able to snatch one up as long as supply lasts, but Apple confirmed that it’s not making more. The news isn’t necessarily surprising, considering the various rumors that preceded WWDC 2016, suggesting that Apple will unveil a more exciting Thunderbolt monitor at the show. Those reports were quickly shot down, and Apple focused on software during the event, without announcing any sort of new hardware upgrades.
What’s interesting about Apple’s announcement is that the company did not quietly announce an upgrade. Instead, Apple is currently proposing buyers alternatives from competing computer monitor makers.
