During Apple’s fiscal Q2 2014 financial results call, Apple shared some details about its popular iTunes Store, which includes the App Store. The results? Well, let’s just say the iTunes and App Stores won’t be closing any time soon from lack of business…
In Q2 2014, Apple customers spent a total of $5.2 billion in the iTunes stores, that’s up 24% year-over-year. That’s up a half billion dollars over the figures for Q1.
Apple’s App Store has seen a cumulative total of 70 billion total app downloads. In January of this year the figure stood at 65 billion.
Most notably, the company says it now has 800 million iTunes accounts, most of those have credit cards attached. That figure could be of major importance down the line if Apple’s much rumored mobile payments push come to fruition. The 800 million count is up considerably from the figure of 575 million iTunes accounts, which was reported back in June 2013.
