- Mac and iPad helped Apple reach second place in the U.S. PC market.
- iPad sales grew 24% year-over-year in the second quarter of 2021.
In a new report from Canalys, Apple continues to see high performance across its Mac and iPad business in the United States.
While HP still took the crown, Apple came in second in the US PC market, despite negative growth with its Mac business. The iPad, however, grew 24% year-over-year.
According to the report, Apple has fared better than other manufacturers when it comes to the global chip shortage. However, other brands like Amazon and Samsung have slowly been creeping up.
Brian Lynch, Research Analyst at Canalys, says that pandemic-related uses cases, like working and learning from home, are likely to continue "well into the future." This, according to the analyst, represents a huge opportunity for the PC and tablet market in the coming months and years.
