“Apple saw its share of personal-computer operating systems in use on the Internet rise to a new high in April, Net Applications reported,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily. “Apple’s Mac operating systems collectively accounted for 9.2% of PCs online last month, up from 7.8% in March.”
“Apple’s percentage of PCs in use on the Internet has been on the rise for several years. Its previous high was 8% in October. About year ago, in April 2015, Mac OS claimed 7.4% usage share,” Seitz reports. “Net Applications data go back to November 2007, when Windows had 95.9% market share and Mac claimed just 3.4%.”
“Microsoft has seen its stranglehold on the PC market loosen. Its usage share of the PC market fell below 90% for the first time last month,” Seitz reports. “Windows accounted for 89.2% of PCs on the Internet in April, down from 90.5% in March.”
