12 Days of iTunes starts with free Maroon 5 EP

Apple has kicked off its annual 12 Days of iTunes giveaway on Wednesday 26th December with a free Maroon 5 EP for UK iTunes users.

Those who download the 12 Days app will be offered the chance to download the bands EP titled Holiday Gift.

Just as Apple did in 2011 to kick off the 12 Days of Christmas giveaway with Coldplay, the Maroon 5 EP gives you three tracks - Overexposed, Songs About Jane, and Hands All Over for nothing.

The scheme, which has run for a number of years, is designed to promote the iTunes store and App store, encouraging new Apple users to get to grips with the download services on their new iPhone or iPad. It is also seen as a great way for Apple to say "Thank you" to its older users.

In previous years Apple has given away movies, music, books, and apps to those who remember to download the 12 Days app and then check in every day, because as soon as the day is over, so is the offer.
