Apple Dominates Stagnant Tablet Market #infographic

Typically reserved for the iPhone, the September event at Apple was all about this year's secret champions of the industry. Tuesday's pre-taped event also saw the official unveiling of a re-designed iPad Air, the mid-range tablet in Apple's line-up, in addition to the new Apple Watch. Despite being industry-leading in their own right, Apple Watch and iPad both share the misfortune of being overshadowed by the iPhone.

Apple delivered 49.9 million iPads last year, up from 43.3 million the year before, according to figures from IDC. That's more than the 48.8 million tablets delivered by the three biggest rivals of the company combined, demonstrating the supremacy of California in the tablet industry. As our graph reveals, last year, Apple bucked the negative trend, rising shipments by 15 percent, amid a 1-percent decrease in total global tablet shipments.
