Apple has officially started giving away free downloads on its "12 Days of Gifts" app for iOS devices, starting with an exclusive EP from Justin Timberlake made up of four live performances from the 2013 iTunes Festival. Before the official start of the giveaway, the app delivered a bonus song and video from New Zealand singer Lorde.

Apple's "12 Days of Gifts" giveaways will run daily from December 26 through January 6 and will offer users samples of a variety of content, including songs, apps, books, movies from across Apple's digital stores.

12 Days of Gifts is a universal app available for free in the App Store. [Direct Link]

Thanks, Luc!

Heads up for those still on iOS 6: You can download the EP from iTunes for free, you don't need to access it through the app.

Not showing for me either but that's probably because it's not Dec 26 here yet. Still 3 hours to go.

I'm going to pass on this gift. Not a Justin Timberlake fan.

I think this is actually timezone locked, so you should see it when the clock in your area hits 12. People on the East Coast can go for it! :)

The app itself says "if you are in a region with multiple time zones, availability is based on the easternmost time zone in your country".

Might only apply to non-American countries though.

Pretty bad for a Day 1 gift ... I have to pass :(
Will MacRumors make a new post everyday during the gift period? This news should be stickied and updated daily.

Sorry for sounding ungrateful, but... are we going to get anything that's actually good?

Wow! Excellent! JT! Tomorrow Facebook Messenger. Then it's gonna be what? Scatman Joe? Macarena? DJ Bobo?

Or maybe Macericks! hmmmm...
Nobody is forcing you to download the or download the free content.
Matter of fact Apple doesn't need to offer you or anyone anything in any way shape or form.

Don't want it don't download it.
