- Apple reportedly shipped 7.3 million units.
- Counterpoint says this is largely down to the M1.
A new report says that the success of Apple's M1 Mac models has driven an 11% rise in Mac shipments in Q3 of 2021.
Counterpoint says that PC shipments as a whole grew again to a total of 84.2 million units despite supply constraints. With Lenovo leading the line ahead of HP, Dell, and then Apple:
An estimated rise of 11%, from 6.6 million units up to 7.3 million in Q3 of this year, helped Apple take an 8.7% market share.
Apple doesn't release Mac sales figures, so these numbers will be based on estimations. However, they could point to encouraging performance of devices like the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 and MacBook Air with M1. This week Apple unveiled its new MacBook Pro (2021) with mini-LED display and new Apple silicon. The M1 Pro and M1 Max chips make it the best MacBook Apple has ever made.
Powerful computing for all
The newest and best
The 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) comes with an M1 Pro or M1 Max SoC that's fast, secure, and available with the most memory and storage options. Did we mention that incredible display and that it comes with MagSafe?!
