Apple Computer confirmed Thursday that it is working on an all-new iMac but that the machine won’t be ready until September, well after the Mac maker runs out of stock on the old model.
The Cupertino, Calif., company said it has stopped taking orders for the current iMac models and had hoped to have the new iMac available by the time the supply of current iMacs dries up. The delay means that Apple stores and resellers will be without an iMac model to sell for all of July and August and some portion of September.
“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,” Apple said in a statement.
The company said the new model will be announced and made available in September. “We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers,” Apple said.
