If Apple devices are tallied together — Macs, iPads, iPhones and so on — the combined sales surpass those of Windows PCs for the first time.

Apple’s Mac desktops and laptops may still count for a fraction of the global market for PCs, but when you tally up all the computers (iPhones, iPads, etc.) on which people actually get things done, the number of computers sold by Apple exceeds the number of Windows-based PCs shipped worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

This is important, because these numbers are dependent on Apple’s mobile sales as well as their desktop/laptop sales. To me, it’s proof that this is a more mobile world, and more have to catch up to it. It’s amazing to me that more isn’t being done to create content for mobile at this point–more than what’s already out there.  When it comes to my desktop/laptop, I’m still firmly a PC gal on Windows 7 at the moment. But for mobile, as regular readers here know, I’m firmly an Apple gal, and can’t imagine using anything else. I’m not saying that other things are bad, but I do love my iPhone and iPad immensely and have had less issues with them as compared to my husband and son who have Android devices. Just sayin’.
