Apple has released its annual “iTunes – 12 Days of Christmas” app for the iPhone and iPad in the App Store for customers in the UK and Canada. The app serves as part of Apple’s promotion that lasts from December 26th to January 6th.

During Apple’s 12 Days of Christmas promotion the company will give away one free gift each day, whether it be an app, song, movie, or iBook.

You and your friends can download a fantastic selection of songs, music videos, apps and books for free. Each download will only be available for 24 hours. Get our special 12 Days of Christmas app to make it even easier to access your gifts while you’re on the go.

Today Apple is kicking off the promotion with a live Coldplay EP from the iTunes Festival in London. The universal application for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is available as a free download in the App Store.

No word has been given on when the app will be made available in the United States.
