Did you know Apple purposely installed U2’s newest album for free on your iOS device without notifying you? If you don’t believe me, go check your playlist now.
Is Apple legally allowed to do this? Yes.
In order to use any of their devices, you have to agree to their terms and services.
But in my opinion, it would’ve been courteous of Apple to at least send an e-mail or a mass notification letting their users know what they’re about to do.
Why did Apple send all of it’s users a free U2 album? It was meant as a promotion for the new IPhone 6. Apple and U2 wanted to break the record for the largest album release of all-time. I’m not sure how U2’s album and the IPhone 6 correlate but that’s their story.
How do I get rid of it, it’s taking up some of my storage space!? Here are some pictures and instructions courtesy of GigaOm.
