50% of Customers Purchasing a Mac in Q2 2022 Were New Mac Users

Since the launch of the first Apple silicon Macs in November 2020, Apple has continued to see strong growth in Mac sales. Apple's Mac revenue hit $10.4 billion in Q2 2022, up from $9.1 billion in the year-ago quarter.

During today's earnings call covering the second fiscal quarter of 2022, Apple CFO Luca Maestri said that the company has been growing its install base. There was a March quarter record for upgraders, and half of all Mac buyers during the quarter were new to the product.

Apple saw strong Mac growth despite supply chain constraints. Apple has had trouble delivering some of its high-end MacBook Pro models in a timely manner, and some users have seen significant delays in shipping estimates.

Most recently, Apple introduced the Mac Studio with M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips. The ‌M1 Ultra‌ is Apple's most powerful Apple silicon chip to date, and it is twice as powerful as the ‌M1 Max‌.

Not really surprising, Apple definitely has the strongest Mac lineup we've seen in many years.

If this doesn’t teach Apple not to abandon the Mac like they did in 2016-2020, I don’t know what will. The Touch Bar model was a disaster.

Dear Apple -- the lesson is, form follows function, not form cripples function. Build powerful computers for those who need it (or want it) and svelte computers for those who want svelte.

Before the M1, Apple almost seemed to treat the Mac as a necessary but second-class citizen in their product line. With the enormous success of the M1 Apple now has no choice but to recognize the huge, untapped potential of the Mac to supplant a significant number of PC sales. This first-time purchase stat supports that new reality.

Jony Ive liked to put macs in wind tunnels, so perhaps we will start seeing function over form starting to become more prevalent (with Jony gone). As much as I like giving my iMac the reach-around every time I need to read SD or plug in a peripheral.
