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

During today’s earnings call covering the second fiscal quarter of 2022, Apple Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said the company has expanded its install base. There was a March quarter record for upgrades, and half of all Mac buyers in the quarter were new to the product.

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

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