Apple Awards ’12 Days of Gifts’ Via App

12 Days of GiftsApple rolled out a “12 Days of Gifts” app Monday that will offer free content during the holidays. A similar offer was available to other countries in the past, but now the U.S. can partake, too.

The content will be available from Dec. 26 through Jan. 6. “Gifts” will vary from songs, apps, books, movies and other items. Each day’s gift will only be available for 24 hours and may not be available in all countries, Apple said.Push notifications will alert users to gifts and badges, while a clock within the app counts down until giveaway day.

The app is available on iOS 7 with iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.

Apple gave away a “Holiday Cheer” playlist of eight songs earlier this month.
