Update: Apple launches ’12 Days of Gifts’ app for iPhone and iPad, free downloads starting December 26th

Apple has launched their annual ’12 Days of Gifts’ app again this year. This will bring various freebies — songs, apps, books and films — to those who download the app.

Apple states that this bonanza begins on December 26th and will last until January 6th. Each ‘new gift’ will be free for 24 hours and is only compatible with devices running iOS 7.

Update – December 16th: Apple has posted a free gift early today. Now free on iTunes for 24-hours is Lorde’s new single “No Better.” No word yet if Apple will offer more ‘early’ gifts, so bank on this officially starting up once again on December 26th

Download the ’12 Days of Gifts’ app here from the App Store.
