Apple has discontinued the Mac Pro in the UK market early after EU regulations forced the technology giant to announce its discontinuation as of March. It's believed Apple has had to remove the product early thanks to Apple's 14-day return policy.

The regulatory standard refers to power sources however it's unclear how the Mac Pro violates these requirements, according to The Verge Apple has been considering an update to the Mac Pro sometime this year.

With attentions firmly focused on their MacBook Pro with Retina Display customers could be waiting a while before Apple looks to update its super-premium desktop.

With the Mac Pro's UK pricing starting at over £2000 this was clearly a machine that was aimed at professionals who needed a machine that could handle serious amounts of multi-tasking.
