It has furthermore revealed which the 25 billionth track downloaded was Monkey Drums (Goksel Vancin Remix) by Chase Buch, that was purchased by Phillip Lüpke inside Germany. He can obtain a 10,000-euro (£8,644) iTunes present card because a reward – though, strangely considering the milestone, not a 25,000-euro 1 (even inside US $ , it comes to $ 13,531).
Pocket-lint has worked out which in the event you were to hear to every music download available about iTunes because it began it might take we 142,694 years 23 days 7 hours plus 59 minutes, provide or take. And that’s when each track was the “ideal pop song” size of 3 minutes.
And nearly all of which time will be taken up by Gangnam Style. Probably.
“We are grateful to the consumers whose passion for music over the previous 10 years has prepared iTunes the first music store inside the planet,” mentioned Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice-president of web software plus services.
“Averaging over 15,000 tunes downloaded per minute, the iTunes Store links music fans with their favourite artists, including worldwide sensations like Adele plus Coldplay plus brand-new artists like The Lumineers, about a scale you not imagined potential.”
