If you’re one of those that had their entire life ruined by Apple adding U2’s “Songs of Innocence” to your iTunes library for free, your life will soon be back on track, as Apple has created a tool to remove the offending album from your library.
To remove the offending U2 album, users should visit this link and use Apple’s removal tool that will automatically remove the U2 album from an account once a user has signed in with their Apple ID and password.
Now, pay close attention to this part… Apple warns:
“Once the album has been removed from your account, it will no longer be available for you to redownload as a previous purchase. If you later decide you want the album, you will need to get it again. The album is free to everyone until October 13, 2014 and will be available for purchase after that date.”
If you’ve already downloaded the U2 songs to iTunes on your Mac or PC or to the Music app on your iOS device, you’ll need to delete them manually.
Personally, what I said last week still stands true:
If the worst thing that's happened to you this week is that you found a free U2 album on your iPhone, then it's been a pretty good week.
