Apple this morning updated their iMac Pro landing page to indicate sales will launch on Thursday, December 14, for Apple.com customers in the U.S and Canada.
Update: Apple.ca finally lists “Available 12.14” for iMac Pro. Yay!
Apple announced the high-end iMac Pro at its WWDC keynote this summer, which starts at $5000 USD (about $6346 CAD), while fully maxed out will cost over $17,000 USD (about $21891 CAD!). The pro-level machine can have up to an 18-core Xeon processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.5Ghz and up to 42MB cache. It will sport a Radeon Pro Vega with 8GB or 16GB high bandwidth memory and also support up to 128GB RAM, all within a 27-inch 5K display, while also come in Space Grey.
Apple says 14 and 18 core models are coming later, for now.
With just under three weeks left in December, the Canadian launch for iMac Pro will most likely come before Christmas, if Apple wants to target high-end shoppers. Apple.ca currently has a ‘Notify Me’ sign up option to find out when iMac Pro launches in Canada.

Update 7:29AM PST: Looks like Canadians will take part in the December 14 launch, too. An Apple Canada email newsletter sent out this morning indicated the 12/14 launch date–looks like Apple.ca just hasn’t been updated yet, which is confusing for customers. We’ve reached out to Apple for comment and will update with clarification.
Update 11:32AM PST: Apple.ca updated to note 12.14 launch as well.
