Specialists of the analytical company IDC summed up the results of the fourth quarter of 2021 and the whole year as a whole in the monitor market. In the fourth quarter, shipments decreased by 5.2% compared to the same quarter in 2020, according to IDC, but shipments increased by 5.0% for the year as a whole. In total, 143.6 million units were shipped during the year, which is the best result since 2012, when sales amounted to 150.3 million units. Analysts point out that the modest year-on-year growth is due to market weakness in the second half of the year, while growth was 19.4% in the first half.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, 37.3 million monitors were shipped. This is 5.2% less compared to the same period in 2020. At the end of the quarter, the top five suppliers included Dell, Lenovo, HP, TPV and Samsung. Their shares are 22.1%, 13.0%, 10.7%, 10.5% and 8.8% respectively.

Aya Neo portable consoles introduced with Ryzen 6800U, OLED and Windows OS
Aya Neo has announced Aya Neo Air and Aya Neo 2 handheld game consoles. Aya NeoAir is the first Windows-based handheld console with an OLED screen, while Aya Neo 2 is powered by AMD Ryzen 6800U chipset.
Aya Neo Air is equipped with a modern vibration motor, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a USB-C port and a microSD card slot. It also has RGB lighting and speaker holes on both sides. The Aya Neo Air is very similar to the Nintendo Switch Lite but powerful enough to match the Steam Deck.
Aya Neo is equipped with a 6-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution screen that covers 109% of the NTSC color space. Aya Neo Air is based on the Ryzen 5000 APU. The device weighs about 420 grams.
The Aya Neo Air is available for pre-order now in China, where the device is priced at $647.
The Aya Neo model has a 5.5-inch OLED screen and AMD Ryzen 6800U chipset, which is the first to be used in a handheld game console. There are no details about the device, but it is known that it will be released at the end of the year.
Bloomberg talks about iOS 16 and Apple Watch non-invasive blood glucose monitor
Editor Mark Gurman of Bloomberg has published new information about the iOS 16 operating system, which is due to be announced at Apple’s WWDC developer conference. The event will begin on June 6 this year.
A Bloomberg writer was asked which of Apple’s operating systems he thought would get the most attention at WWDC, and he replied: “As usual, it will probably be iOS. In this case, iOS 16.” Gurman added that he doesn’t expect a “complete redesign” of the operating system, but expects to see what he calls “new ways to interact.” The update, he said, will include “fresh Apple apps.” Gurman said last month that he expects iOS 16 to bring a new updated notification system and new health tracking capabilities.
Earlier leaks have revealed a new “mega-widget” supposedly known internally as InfoShack. This will allow iOS users to create custom widgets. As for watchOS 9, a Bloomberg writer previously mentioned that the blood pressure sensor won’t appear on the Apple Watch until 2024 at the earliest, with users able to get a low power mode and improved scanning for atrial fibrillation (AFib).
There were rumors that a non-invasive blood glucose sensor would appear in the watch. This would save millions of insulin dependent Americans the pain and expense of donating blood before every meal. Currently, this is done by applying a drop of blood to an expensive disposable test strip to obtain a reading of a diabetic’s blood glucose levels. These readings are used to determine the dose of insulin that a diabetic should inject before eating.
However, there are many problems associated with creating such a sensor, and Mark Gurman does not expect Apple to be able to implement such a feature in its watches within a few years.
