1 cover - Macs  iPads stats report for Q3 2022


In a new analytical report posted today, we learn that US shipments of desktops, notebooks and workstations fell by 12% year on year in Q3 2022 to 17.8 million units. Notebooks suffered a 14% decline, the largest of any category, as cautious business spending added to the consumer and education drop-off. Desktops grew a modest 1% in Q3 as the category recovers from pandemic-era declines. Tablets fell slightly by 1% as inflation diminished demand despite heightened promotional activity. Commercial demand, which has been strong in recent quarters, slowed as the segment dipped by 2% in Q3.


Yet within that haze of negativity, Apple stood out with 26.5% annual growth, expanding their market share year-over-year from 11.6% to 16.7% as confirmed by the chart below. Apple benefited from fulfilling backlogged orders from a supply-crunched Q2 and launched new M2 devices.

2 US PC MARKET Q3 2022


PC OEMs HP, Dell and Lenovo were hit hard with double digit loses.


Brian Lynch, Canalys Research Analyst: "Looking ahead, the US PC market will face further headwinds,” added Lynch. “Despite the Q4 holiday season, the market will suffer a continued downturn. Cash-strapped consumers will cut spending on expensive technology products. Retailers have ramped up promotions in recent months to make room for new device launches as the holiday season approaches. But overall retail inventories are still growing faster than sales."
