Apple last shared its active install base in January 2022, when the company had 1.8 billion active devices worldwide

This is an update from 1.65 billion. Beingmoreattractive (talk) 19:22, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do we have a source on this? This article from MacRumors and the Verge cites over 2 billion. - Skipple 19:41, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually, yeah you're right it's above two billion.

2011–present: Post-Jobs era, Cook's leadership section is too detailed[edit]

Compares to previous eras described in the History section, the most recent era is way too detailed and not up to date at all. It talks about software features like Lockdown mode, which isn't historically relevant, a talks about rumors on the Vision Pro, referring to its software with its rumored name RealityOS and not talking about its unveiling. The fact that the article is locked lowers the quality of this section. (talk) 05:16, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It can certainly be argued to be a case of recency bias and organized better. I'll take a look at it but, in the meantime, as I don't think the lock will be lifted due to numerous disruptions it used to bring, feel free to leave more suggestions. You can provide a version you would find more in line with Wikipedia's policies and an editor can implement it. ASpacemanFalls (talk) 15:21, 21 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

History - 1970s - Apple was not the leading computer manufacturer in the USA.[edit]

From the article, there is a false statement: "By the end of the 1970s, Apple had become the leading computer manufacturer in the United States". This statement is cited with a reference to a book (no e-book available) noting 7,000,000 units sold from 1978 to 1982, which conflicts with other references. From multiple sources, the Radio Shack TRS-80 outsold Apple II every year from 1977 to 1980, and the Atari 400|800 also outsold the Apple II from 1979 to 1980. The Atari 400|800 continued to outsell the Apple II from 1981 to 1983. The Commodore 64 sold the most units in 1983 and 1984, and the IBM PC also outsold the Apple II in 1983 and 1984[1], and [2] Rcgldr (talk) 19:18, 25 August 2023 (UTC) Rcgldr (talk) 19:18, 25 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
