Christmas may be over now, but that doesn’t mean you have to be done getting presents. Apple has kicked off its ’12 Days of Gifts’ event this morning with a free gift for its faithful users, and will continue to give one each day for the next week and a half.

Today’s gift is the iTunes Festival EP from music superstar Justin Timberlake. The album contains 4 live performances from Apple’s annual music festival this year, and is free for all users in qualifying areas who have downloaded the 12 Days of Gifts app

Timberlake’s EP includes performances of 4 hit songs: SexyBack, Take Back the Night, True Blood and TKO, and will only be available for 24 hours. After that, Apple will remove it and post a new song, app, book or movie every day through January 6, 2014.

Folks in European countries have become accustomed to Apple’s yearly gift-giving ritual, but it’s never been available to those of us here in the United Sates until now. If you want to check it out, you can find the 12 Days of Gifts app in the App Store for free.

    • Rickm_jr

      I think it depends on what country your iTunes account is associated with.

    • Mohamed Elzarei

      what is your country?

      • Amit

        Not sure about that, there are a few Real Steel games.

    • Freak Cleverman

      Change your iTunes associated region setting to New Zealand/Fiji and you’ll get “Tiny Thief” 🙂

      • Mohammed Sahib

  • on3simpleclick

    If anyone is wanting to download things from different countries,
    it’s relatively easy to make different iTunes accounts to do so (;

    • d3si 5abi

      nah! wuld be difficult if suppose u need apps from 4 different countries and more difficulty wen they need to be updated! so the better way as i see is to just change the country of ur current apple id and than back after u finish purchasing 😉 😀

      • on3simpleclick

        You have to change your address on the Apple site every time you want to purchase things from a different country. That seems like more of a hassle then just having multiple accounts. lol. And if apps need updating, then you just login into that account.

    I’m having trouble finding my second gift? The app said that the second gift was ready for downloading but nothing is showing up in the app. It is still stuck on the first gift?

    • Haley

      My second gift was the tv show Once Upon A Time but it’s wanting me to pay 24.99 to get it. I thought all of it was supposed to be free?

      • Xs

        Which episode? Check Kalahari – Africa by BBC

  • Haley

    Are all the gifts free?

    • Olivia

      /yeah that’s what I thought too but just click on the first episode (pilot episode) and then download that one. Only the first episode is free. 🙂

  • Xs

    I made a search and what I found is that all these apps are for free for all countries. We just need to say what gifts we’ve got and say it to this forum.
    For example Tiny Thief and Real Steel are for free in the UK. Check your Apple Store!!! Today’s gift is Kalahari -Africa by BBC
