 Phillip, 22, of Hanover, Germany, was gifted the card for having the 25 billionth download from iTunes. The iTunes music store hit its 25 billionth download in just under 10 years after being launched in the April of 2013.

Just a fun fact- 25 billion downloads is roughly equivalent to selling three songs to every living person on this planet! Impressive by any standards.

Kudos to Apple for this cool achievement!
