Mac sales continue to fall as Apple turns a blind eye to their updates

If the numbers released last week by two different analysis firms are not enough to convince Apple that it's past time to get your hands dirty and give a little much-needed attention to your computer line, I don't know what's going on anymore. Gartner and IDC have issued their periodic reports on the personal computer market, and Ma, as a clear consequence of their disregard for Macs, is losing even more ground.

According to both companies, Apple shipped 5 million Macs globally in the third quarter of 2016, down 13.4% from 5.4 (according to Gartner) or 5.8 million units ( according to IDC) sent over the same period last year.

As a result, data from Gartner show that the Cupertino giant maintains a dishonorable fifth place in the market share segment, however, fell from 7.8% to 7.2%, behind Lenovo (20.9% and 14.4 million computers shipped), HP (20.4%), Dell (14, 7%) and ASUS (7.8%).

Focusing only on the US market, Apple remains in fourth place, but was the only one of the top five companies to fall year-over-year: if in 2015 it had 14.3% of the segment, it is now 12.9%, with approximately 2 million Macs shipped to the US last quarter. Thus, Ma is behind HP (29.7% of the market and 4.7 million PCs shipped), Dell (24%) and Lenovo (14.1%), but ahead of ASUS (5.1%). .

Considering the segment as a whole, computer sales were down 5.7% year-over-year in the last quarter, marking the eighth consecutive decline in a branch that is increasingly showing signs of stagnation, mainly due to Apple but in the s from Apple. Please note that this data only refers to computers themselves, regardless of tablet shipments.
