A new report says Apple took a 38.6% market share of tablet shipments in Q1 thanks to the iPad.
As reported by Canalys:
Apple shipped almost 15 million tablets in the first quarter of the year, thanks to strong demand for its best iPads including its new iPad Air. Canalys says that demand for tablets remains strong despite the shipping decline.
Apple didn't register in the top five for PC shipments, but Canalys says that when you combine PC and tablet shipments Apple still leads the pack with an 18.8% market share overall. Apple is expected to unveil a new MacBook Air later this year and reportedly has other devices in the works including a new Mac Pro that the company teased at its last event following the advent of the Mac Studio.
