Apple today launched a celebration of ‘A Decade of iTunes‘ with a clever interactive timeline on the iTunes Store, reports The Loop. The timeline is beautiful and features milestones for the iTunes Store by year, including song downloads, iPod hardware and musical touchstones.

Each year features a list of hardware announcements, starting with the third-generation iPod, which was launched the same year as the iTunes Store. Each entry also lists the top-selling songs and albums on the iTunes charts for that year.

The list of 2013 milestones is short still, but includes the 40 billionth app downloaded from the App Store, 25 billion songs sold via iTunes and 1 billion courses downloaded from iTunes U. You can view the timeline here, and there’s a custom version for the iPhone and iPad as well.
