Report Summary:

Overall, Q2 2016 was a stable quarter for business smartphones but a weak tablet market, due to market saturation and caution about the future of the world economy. Worldwide business smartphone shipments in Q2 2016 increased to 93.3 million units, up 4.5% annually from 89.3 million in Q2’15 and the business tablet market fell to 17.2 million unit shipments in the second quarter 2016, down 7.9% annually from 18.6 million in Q2’15. Apple's newly launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are getting new productivity-boosting features. We are expecting iOS business shipments to improve in the third quarter 2016.
