At last week's Apple event it was announced that all iTunes subscribers would get U2's new album for free. The new album is titled "Songs of Innocence" and quickly began showing up in iTunes on Mac and Windows computers as well as devices such as iPads and iPhones.
The "gift" of a free U2 album is a great deal. For example I'm a U2 fan so was glad to receive this gift. Yet it appears many Apple fans are not U2 fans. Many Apple users were upset by the gift of a free album taking up precious storage space and being added to their collection. Fortunately Apple has listened to these users.
Apple has set up an area on their support website that instructs users on how to remove this album. It can be found here. It's important to note that once you remove the album you no longer will have it in your purchases history. That means that if at some point in the future you decide you want it you'll have to pay for it. It remains free through October 13th so if you change your mind after deleting it you can still get it for free until October 13.
