Apple's '12 Days of Gifts' App for 2013 Now Live, Includes U.S. Customers

Apple today released its annual "12 Days of Gifts" app for iOS devices, setting the stage for the actual giveaway of free content from the company's various digital stores from December 26 through January 6. Apple has offered the giveaway for several years in Europe, Canada, and several other countries, and in 2013 U.S. customers will have access for the first time.
From 26 December – 6 January, you can download a gift each day—songs, apps, books, movies, and more—with the 12 Days of Gifts app. Each day's gift will only be available for 24 hours, so download the free app to make sure you don’t miss out. Please note: Not all content is available in all countries.

An excellent iOS 7 app. The whiners who refuse to upgrade need not attempt a download.


As a 4th-generation iPod touch user, it's not that I refuse to upgrade but that I cannot.

Not that I'm bitter about this being iOS 7 only. Although, I would have checked it out if I could have. It doesn't even really seem like something that needs an application. Couldn't it just be a section of the store?

That's awesome! Finally the company gives back to its customers a little.


Seriously? They release the latest version of OSX for free, iWork and iLife for OSX and iOS for free, have a free app of the week, dropped the price on several products, but you're right, finally they give back to their customers. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Just out of curiousity, what were the free apps given away last time? I'm not too interested in the free movies and music.

Anyone noticed the background is like the dynamic wallpapers in iOS7, but without motion sensitivity? Weird.

I believe previously the apps etc have been made free for the day for everyone, and the app just tells you about them, so you'll be able to get them anyway if you can find out about them from elsewhere.
