Apple launches “12 Days of Gifts” on iTunes, first time in the US


Santa Apple’s gift giving tradition for Christmas is finally here. Apple has released a new app on iTunes that would allow users to download a free gift each day for the period Dec 26 to Jan 6.

The app description states, “Each day’s gift will only be available for 24 hours, so download the free app to make sure you don’t miss out”.

Apple has maintained its tradition of providing free apps to the users during Christmas time in countries like Canada, Europe and Japan. This year the Gift program is being extended to other North American regions, Russia, and some others countries as well.


This year the free gift program has been called “12 Days of Gifts” by Apple while in previous years, the app was called “12 Days of Christmas.”

The app is available for download and runs on both iPhone and iPad. Each gift would be posted at midnight at local time, you can set a ping notification on your device to alert you when the gift is available.

This is your chance to grab some exciting gifts from Apple which could be anything. Apple has not provided details of the free gifts but you can expect anything from games, books, movies, songs, coupons and other exciting stuff.

The gifts will vary from country to country. In earlier years we saw games like Classic Goals, and Broken Sword and TV shows like Sherlock and How I Met Your Mother, movies like Chaplin’s Modern Times being given away as free gifts.

It’s not just Apple, holiday season is an exciting time when a lot of companies offer discounts, free apps and other freebies on various handset and devices. This Monday Microsoft kicked off the 12 days deal which started off with a very good discount on Dell Venue 8 Pro which was a total sell-out.

The countdown has begun.
