Sales of tablets continue to fall for the fourth consecutive year. The situation in the second quarter of 2018 has become even worse, according to the IDC report published by The Verge.
From April until June 2018, manufacturers have shipped 33 million tablets. This is five million less than the same period last year. IDC has recorded a record decline of 13.5%.
In the second quarter of 2018, almost all manufacturers have reduced the supply of tablets. Only Apple and Huawei managed slightly to increase performance. According to IDC, Apple shipped 35.9 percent of tablets, followed by Samsung at 15.1%, the third — Huawei — 10,3%.
“Although buyers and companies have also shown interest in the tablet, on the market there were few low-end models, so some prefer to buy a regular computer,” — said a senior analyst at IDC. The company hopes that the iPad and Surface 2018 Go will be able to revive the market.
In the fall of 2018 is also expected to release updated iPad Pro. According to rumors, he will get a Face ID, will lose the 3.5 mm audio Jack and Home button.
