FORTUNE has summarized analyst estimates for revenue generated by iTunes in Q3.

Apple recently consolidated iTunes, Software and Services into one line item which generated $12.9 billion in fiscal 2012. That makes it the company's second fastest growing revenue stream and according to analysts it will surpass both the iPhone and iPad to take first place in year over year growth when Apple reports its Q3 earnings.

iTunes estimates were optional in our quarterly polling, but so far we've received numbers from 40 analysts -- 22 Wall Street professionals and 18 amateurs. Their estimates ranged from the high of $5.6 billion submitted by Jefferies' Peter Misek to a low of $3.3 billion from Sunil Shah, an independent from the Braeburn Group. The average estimate -- $4.17 billion -- is 30% higher than the $3.20 billion listed for the same quarter last year in Apple's "reclassified summary spreadsheet."

Notably, the Street is more bullish than amateurs for change. The professional analysts are predicting 33% growth while the amateurs are predicting 26%.

Apple is set to announce its fiscal Q3 2013 earnings on Tuesday, July 23.

The "Professional Analysts" are more interested in hearing themselves talk. On a separate note, I see that all you jerkwads have found a way around iClarified's new 'ownership' restrictions. Is it REALLY that hard to come up with your own name? I guess you know that no one will listen to your garbage unless you use someone else's trusted name!

Y'know, I know this isn't really part of the topic but I did win 2 $10 gift cards for itunes from oreo creme vs. cookie text contest back in march. I gave them to my sister since she downloads thousands of bands music she's a fan of.

I call this opinion BS. iTunes is organized, lets you review what you downloaded in the past, lets you know what's new, filter results, and is secure since it makes sure it's that same person using their accounts by checking passwords.
