Apple Gives Away Latest U2 Album For Free
Published By: Tariq ZidanSeptember 9, 2014
Apple’s release of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch was an event not to be missed. Apple announced the latest album from U2–‘Songs of Innocence’ will be available free to download. All of the members of U2 where onstage to announce the free download of their latest album.
While there is a catch it’s very reasonable.The album is free to download until October 13, 2014. It is available for free on iTunes and Beats Audio. That’s the catch, it seems pretty fair to me.
The obvious goal is to increase iTunes user ship and activity. Apple claims there are 500 million people who fit the criteria for the free download of the entire U2 album ‘Songs of Innocence’.
If you don’t have an iTunes Beats Audio account, you can still get the album for free until October 13, 2014. U2 has helped Apple before with iTunes, you probably remember ‘Vertigo’ playing to the old school iPod commercial.
