If you were looking for some good news today and you own an iPhone, iPad, or iPod, you need to look no further.  Apple has decided to give everyone in the United States the opportunity to get some free Christmas gifts this year; 12 gifts to be exact. In years past, the U.S. was excluded from Apple’s gift-giving extravaganza, but it now seems as if Apple has had a slight change of heart, and this is great news for everyone who owns an Apple device.

During the 12 days of Christmas, Apple is going to give away 12 completely free gifts as part of their 12 Days of Gifts event for 2013. So, from December 26th until January 6th, you can get a late Christmas present from Apple every day. All you have to do is download their app here and you are ready to go.

Apple Presents 12 Days Of Free Gifts For The U.S.

Who Doesn’t Like Free???

Nobody knows exactly what gifts will fill up the 12 days, but they could be anything from songs, movies, games, or other popular apps. As Gizmodo recently reported, in years past Apple has decided to gift episodes of popular TV shows from Sherlock to How I Met Your Mother. They also gave away music from Maroon 5 and One Direction, and top games such as Sonic Dash among others.

I have to admit, this is a pretty neat tradition for Apple to host. They certainly don’t have to do it, but it is nice to see them getting into the holiday spirit. One can only wonder what sort of freebies they will be giving away this year, but there’s only one sure way to find out – download the app and make sure you check it every day between 12/26/13 and 1/6/14!

Have you participated in Apple’s 12 Days of Gifts before? Is so, what did you think of it?
