WWDC kicks off with state of the Mac: 80 million users

Apple shows off Mac growth rates at WWDC 2014

Kicking off the Worldwide Developer Conference, or WWDC, this year, Apple CEO Tim Cook gave us a look at the state of the Mac by giving us a look at how the Mac and Mavericks is doing. According to Cook, there are over 9 million developers creating compelling apps for Apple, giving them nearly a 50 percent increase from last year.

So how many people are benefiting from the work of these 9 million developers? Apple says that the total Mac user install base is now 80 percent and that Mac shipments had increased 12 percent year-over-year while the PC market is down by about 5 percent.

Promoting Maverick's fast adoption rate, Apple says that 40 million people have already upgraded to OS X Mavericks, quite an accomplishment considering that Windows 8 was released a year prior to the launch of Mavericks and has only garnered an adoption rate of 14 percent today.
