Apple (AAPL) Q2 2023 Mac sales down 31% from prior year

Apple's (AAPL) impressive quarter also came with some bad news for Mac sales.


Today, Apple (AAPL) released its earnings report for Q2 2023. Impressively, the company beat both earnings and revenue expectations, powered by a record second quarter for iPhone sales. However, this financial prosperity did not extend to all of Apple’s products. Apple’s earnings report also revealed that Mac sales were down 31 percent from last year.

Apple shared a consolidated financial statements PDF alongside its Q2 2023 earnings report. The PDF includes sales figures for iPhone, Mac, iPad, Wearables, and Services. In Q2, Apple made $7.1 billion in Mac Sales. This represents a 31 percent drop from the $10.4 billion it made during Q2 last year. Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke about Mac’s sales during the Q2 earnings call.

Cook goes on to reaffirm that the M2 MacBooks that were released in 2022 are amazing products, stating that users have raved about their power and capability.

Unlike Mac, iPhone had a stellar quarter for Apple, setting a new record for iPhone revenue in the second quarter. This propelled the company to beat both earnings and revenue expectations for the quarter. Apple also announced a $90 billion addition to its stock buyback program.

      I’m sure people loaded up on the M1 chip and then shrugged at the M2 cost causing this effect.

        That's what Tim said. Plus it only being ~10% faster isn't really compelling.

        My original m1 MacBook with only 8gb still flies. I’ve not encountered anything that makes me want to upgrade.

          Me too - it's annoying because I would love to upgrade to the Pro but have no justification for it. I just want more unnecessary power.

        How many people replace their laptops every generation these days? Even if the M2 was priced the same as the M1 sales would be down huge.

          How many people replaced their laptops every generation ever? But yeah it's even less compelling in the last ~10 years. Compute has been powerful enough to last 5+ years easily for the things MOST people do on a daily basis for at least a decade.
