Apple was the only PC maker to post shipments growth in Q2 2023

Apple was the only PC maker to post shipments growth during the second quarter of 2023 as overall shipments for the global PC market shrank for the sixth consecutive quarter, according to a new analysis shared by market research firm IDC.

The analysis blames several factors for this continued downward trend, including global economic turmoil, weak consumer and enterprise demand, and IT budgets designed to fix and upgrade current PCs instead of purchasing new ones. Despite these factors, IDC reports that shipments for Q2 2023 were better than anticipated.

Overall market shipments declined by 13.4% year-over-year to reach 61.6 million units compared to 71.1 million a year ago, reports IDC. Dell posted the steepest decline among the top five PC makers, shrinking from 13.2 million units to 10.3 million in a 22% YoY decline. HP shipments remained essentially flat, going from 13.5 million units shipped in Q2 2022 to 13.4 million in Q2 2023. Apple was the only company to post positive growth, increasing its shipments from 4.8 million units to 5.3 million, representing a respectable YoY growth of 10.3%. The company also slightly grew its market share from 6.8% to 8.6%.

It may not be all doom and gloom for Apple and its Mac business after all. The company reported a 30% YoY decline for its Mac revenue during fiscal Q2 2023. IDC similarly reported a steep 40% Mac shipments decline during the same period, but the downward trend may soon be coming to an end after Apple announced several new Macs at WWDC 2023 last month.

Affiliate links are a popular way for websites to make money, but they can also be annoying to readers. They can obstruct content, trick visitors, and even be scams.

Supercharged is committed to respecting your time, sanity, and convenience. That’s why we’re doing affiliate linking differently.

You Control What You See

Have you ever felt like you're bombarded with affiliate links and ads constantly? We understand how overwhelming that can be, which is why we want to give you some control with the option to expand the affiliate options that you find interesting.

We're Strict

We have a strict policy of showing you a maximum of five brands or products at once. It's simple: if we wouldn't buy it ourselves, we won't recommend it to you.

No Tracking or Creepy Cookies

For all of our affiliates, we work directly with the companies to offer discounts and deals for you. We do not use third-party affiliate managers, trackers, or platforms like Amazon, so you can be confident that you won't have to deal with tracking.
