The Apple monitor is no more.

Apple made it official that the Thunderbolt Display will be discontinued. The rumor mill already said that a couple weeks ago, speculating about a new Apple display with 5K resolution and built-in GPU.

Apple said in a statement supplied to TechCrunch: "We’re discontinuing the Apple Thunderbolt Display. 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."

The $999 27-inch Thunderbolt Display is still in stock right now at the online Apple store. The low resolution of the Thunderbolt Display is a problem when used with a current generation 5K iMac. It is only a viable solution for MacBook users.

Apple made the end of the Thunderbolt Display official, likely to prepare corporate buyers. It is not clear if Apple will be offering another display later this year. Apple is recommending 3rd party options, but is not selling any displays from other vendors in the Apple Store.
