1 cover- Canalys iPad Mac stats report for Q4 2022 +

A new analytical report today claims that in Q4-22 U.S. tablet device shipments grew by a modest 2% to 12.6 million units, as heavy discounting and promotions during the holiday season helped clear retail inventories. Apple cemented its dominance of the US tablet market by shipping 5.8 million iPads in Q4, taking 46% market share and delivering 13.8% annual growth as the chart below proves out.

Apple also secured an overall market share of 42% for the full year (the annual chart not shown). Apple's CEO Tim Cook stated during the company's Financial Conference Call in February that "During the quarter, iPad revenue grew 30% to a total of $9.4 billion. The very strong growth was due in part to a favorable compare to the December quarter a year ago when we experienced significant supply constraints."

Other tablet vendors: Amazon experienced a slight decline in shipments in Q4 but grew 6% overall in 2022. Samsung held onto third place, growing 15% in Q4 with a strong holiday season performance. TCL saw impressive growth of 79% in 2022 as it renewed its focus on tablets with several new devices. Microsoft’s tablet shipments plummeted by 42% in Q4 but it maintained its position among the top five vendors in 2022.

The report by Canalys also covered PCs (desktops, notebooks and workstations) which fell 23% year-over-year in 2022, shipping 16.1 million units as demand remained muted by high inflation and economic uncertainty. Shipments of notebooks (including mobile workstations) fell by 24%, while desktops (including desktop workstations) declined by 22%. Apple landed in forth spot with growth at -27.8%

For the full year, PC shipments fell by 18% and Apple declined the least (chart not shown) at -1.1% for the full year while the top 3 vendors HP, Dell and Lenovo all declined double digits.

Canalys noted that "Apple saw the smallest decline of the top PC vendors in 2022 as its new M series devices drove refreshes and attracted new users throughout the year.
