Canalys: Apple sold 208,000 Macs and iPads in India during March quarter

From DigiTimes’ “Apple sees increasing shipments in India” posted Monday:

Apple became the fifth largest PC brand in India in the first quarter of 2021, with shipments of desktops, notebooks, tablets and workstations combined to reach 208,000 units, according to data from Canalys.

Canalys pointed out that the significant increase in Apple’s notebook and tablet shipments in India was due mainly to Apple opening its online store in September 2020.

Research firm IDC’s figures also show Apple’s PC shipments in India (excluding tablets) grew 335.5% on year in the first quarter and only lagged Asustek’s by around 2,000 units. Apple and Asustek were tied for fifth place in IDC’s rankings for PC brands in India in the quarter.

My take: Persistence — and a rising middle class — pays off.

    Again,, we see Tim Cook the visionary, who has talked about this potential for years.

    While critics decry slow progress, he keeps his eye on the prize.

    We ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Much of Apple’s robust growth going forward is tied with its future performance in India. Apple is making baby steps progress in India. At some point soon, Apple’s progression in the country will accelerate relative to revenue & earnings growth for the company.

    I have to wonder how many Macs were sold to Indian IT developers due to increasing demand for stuff that works on Mac OS.
