iTunes Sets a New Record for Song Downloads

Apple's iTunes Music Store has set another major record for the digital music market. The iTunes Store has surpassed 25 billion songs sold. According to the numbers, Apple is selling 21 million songs a day via iTunes.

NPD Group reports that iTunes accounted for 69% of all digital music sales in the United States during 2012. Apple has 29% of the overall music market versus digital and physical formats selling more music than both Walmart and Target. Apple is making serious money off its iTunes business according to estimates.

The iTunes business including sales of Apple Care warranties and other services generated slightly less than $3.7 billion in revenue for Apple's quarter ending December 29. That is a 22% increase from the same quarter the previous year and the $3.7 billion is only Apple's cut. Gross sales were significantly higher when you figure in the portion of sales that go to developers, record labels, and musicians.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
