Current iMacs Discontinued; New iMacs in September

This is the stangest hardware announcement I’ve ever seen from Apple. The old iMacs are discontinued — Apple is no longer taking orders for them. But new iMacs won’t be introduced until September. Says Apple:

We planned to have our next generation iMac ready by the time the inventory of current iMacs runs out in the next few weeks, but our planning was obviously less than perfect.

Poor score for planning; high score for honesty.
