Apple are still adding piles of new users to iTunes, but just how many are they adding on a daily basis? According to Horace Dediu of Asymco, the Cupertino-based giant are adding around 500,000 new iTunes accounts each and every day.

If they keep this pace, they'll have added another 100 million iTunes accounts before the end of the year. There may be more users on iTunes, but revenue per account has actually dropped over the last couple of years. Dediu noted that each of the 575 million accounts generates half as much revenue, or $3.20 per month compared to Apple's 100 million iTunes accounts did in 2009.
