Apple’s Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi sat down with John Gruber for his ‘The Talk Show‘ podcast recently, and discussed some of the finer nuances of Apple’s services. They even gave us hard user numbers for Apple Music and iCloud.

According to Apple’s execs, there are over 11 million paying Apple Music subscribers, and 782 million iCloud users. That’s on over one billion Apple devices, too.

They also say over 200,000 iMessages cycle through the system every second, and 750 million transactions per week via iTunes and the App Store.

While we don’t have Apple TV or Apple Watch user numbers, there is a new Remote app coming for Apple TV. According to Apple brass, it will mimic the existing Apple TV remote in every way, including how we use gestures and Siri.
