PC industry in Q2 2023 is not doing well, according to the latest IDC research. In their report, this is the sixth consecutive quarter of PC sales decline.
Total deliveries witnessed a significant decline of 13% from 71 million to 61.6 million compared to the previous year.
This is just part of larger unfavorable market conditions, present for a while now. Literally, every manufacturer that makes Windows PCs encountered a PC sales decline.

Apple recently introduced the new 15″ MacBook Air, with extraordinary battery life, which is the largest MacBook Air ever. There are also new devices in Apple's roadmap. The new iMac, as well as new MacBook models, will be introduced later this year, or in the first half of 2024.
