Last quarter, Apple's customers spent a total of $5.2 billion on iTunes purchases, up 24 percent year over year. That's also up from $4.7 during the first quarter of 2014. Cumulatively, Apple's App Store has seen 70 billion total app downloads, up from 65 billion in January.

Apple has 800 million iTunes accounts, most with credit cards attached, an important fact in light of Apple's potential interest in entering the mobile payments market. Back in June of 2013, Apple announced 575 million customers had iTunes accounts, marking a massive growth increase.

Overall, Apple shared via its financial results report that it posted revenue of $45.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $10.2 billion, or $11.62 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $43.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $9.5 billion, or $10.09 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.

Same here. I do like however, the iOS 7 iTunes logo much better.

I like that the profit has gone up, but I don't like that the majority of consumers these days have no problem spending $20 every month for stupid IAP, yet won't buy a $0.99-5 game.

But whatever, 800 million accounts is an amazing number.
