MacTrast is reporting that inventory of the Thunderbolt displays is fine at Apple stores, but at third party resellers, there are mainly out of stock.
What I found was particularly interesting. While stock levels appear stable at many Apple resellers, three major online stores in particular list the device as entirely out of stock – Adorama, Frys.com, PowerMax and MacMall list 5 or fewer units in stock. Even more interesting, Adorama lists the product as not only “out of stock,” but “no longer available.”
I gave them a quick call to see what was up, and was greeted by Rose from Adorama Customer Support. Rose exclusively informed MacTrast that “The manufacturer is no longer allowing us to order new inventory for this item, and it has been removed from our system,” although she did note that Apple hadn’t provided them with any additional details on whether a new product would replace the Thunderbolt Display.
The Thunderbolt display is due for a refresh soon, and could see features like Retina capabilities, Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, and the Magsafe 2 connector.
