iTunes Now Has Nearly 800 Million Accounts, Most With Credit Cards Attached

TechCrunch

In June of last year, Apple announced that over 575 million accounts had been created for iTunes

Just 10 months later, they’ve grown that number by nearly forty percent.

On the Apple earnings call today, Tim Cook announced that they were just about to surpass their 800 millionth iTunes account.

If my quick calculations are correct, that’s a growth rate of something like 710,000 accounts per day. Continuing at this rate, iTunes could easily find its billionth user in less than a year.

The crazy part? The vast majority of those accounts have credit cards attached to them. That’s nearly 800 million accounts with one-click purchase access on things like the App Store.

Insane.
