To that end of 2012, Apple has annually held a non-US event of iTunes Store-based giveaways during the 12 days. The 2012 edition of the corresponding iOS app is now available in the Canadian, UK and most European iTunes store but not to US iTunes account holders.
This app allows you and your friends to download a fantastic selection of songs, music videos, apps, books and TV episodes for free. Each download will only be available for 24 hours. The 12 Days of Christmas app makes sure you not miss out any interesting things for the next 12 days during Christmas it is available on itune store for free.
Even if you don’t have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? Don’t worry. You can go back on December 26 to download gifts from your computer directly from iTunes.
There is some regional variation to the gifts received. For example, in the UK last year Apple’s 12 gifts (at least in the UK) were an iTunes Festival song by Coldplay, an episode of the TV show Top Gear, a Lady Gaga single, the e-book “The Redbreast,” the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing iOS app, photo-editing app Snapseed (which was a paid app at the time), a One Direction single, episodes of House and 30 Rock, the iOS game Shift 2: Unleashed, the e-book Best in Travel 2012 from Lonely Planet, and a Christmas song from Foo Fighters.
In Canada, the gifts were entirely different except for the Coldplay song on Day 1 and the Lonely Planet travel e-book on Day 7. Canada saw Day 12 deliver a brace of free (live) Leonard Cohen songs along with a track by Foster the People.
