Apple recently introduced the latest iMac 2021, which comes with a variety of cheerful colors. With the current fashion concept in mind, the company has agreed to discontinue production of the brand’s iconic space grey Mac and iMac accessories. According to The Verge, the space grey accessories are currently accessible on the Apple Store website, but they are clearly marked “while supplies last.”
Additionally, the report indicates that the transfer may point to the end of Apple’s black Lightning cable. The accessory is not marketed individually and is delivered in conjunction with other space grey products and select Beats headphones.
Apple’s enigmatic past
Apple introduced the space grey colour in September 2013 with the iPhone 5S, immediately succeeding the iPhone 5’s darker blueish-grey look. In October of the same year, the space grey colour was also introduced to the updated iPad Mini 2 and iPad Air.
A year later, in September 2014, a lighter variant of the space grey colour was introduced with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, subsequently making its way to the iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2A, as well as Apple Store gift cards. Some referred to this as space grey 2. In March 2015, the first MacBook with the colour was released. Since then, space grey has been added to a variety of Apple items and has undergone further colour improvements. The same can be confirmed on the Apple Store’s Indian website as well. The Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard, and trackpad are among the space grey gadgets that are supposed to be forever unavailable. According to the paper, the space grey accessories will not be restocked until current supplies run out. Silver accessories, on the other hand, will remain available.
The choice to abandon darker accessories is strange, given that Apple continues to sell dark-colored M1 MacBooks and many users would like to use a matching external accessory such as a cursor for the laptops.
