Apple announces 200M iTunes in the Cloud users

At today’s iPhone event, Apple announced that there were now some 200M iTunes in the Cloud users. That’s the service that Apple offers to people to play and download their purchased items wherever they are directly from its cloud.

As of the July quarter, Apple has some 150M iCloud users, which was up from 125M users in April of this year. That’s a 20% growth in three months, compared to the roughly 17.6% growth in just 21 days earlier this year. That means that iCloud signups trended down in a period where Apple introduced no major new products aside from the iPad.

At that time, Oppenheimer also announced that Apple had sold more than 410 million iOS devices, with more than 45 million in the last quarter. The App Store hit 650,000 apps total, with some $5.5B paid out to developers.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook announced in February that its syncing service had over 100M users. In January, Cook said that the service had 85M users, making this a growth of 15M users in 21 days.
