2014 Apple 12 days iTunes app not available

By Peter Chubb - Dec 8, 2014

With Christmas fast approaching I thought I would reinstall the 12 Days of Christmas app on my iPhone, but upon searching for it in iTunes expecting to see it ready and waiting for me in iCloud, there were no results. I was able to get around this by going to iTunes, then all apps and then managed to drag last year’s versions to the iPhone.

2014 Apple 12 days iTunes app still not available – The problem with installing last year’s version is that it still says Happy New Year, and so it is stuck in a loop because it does not know it is another year.

What we find interesting is the fact by this time last year Apple already released its new version of its 12 Days of Christmas app, so what is taking this year’s update so long?

Ok, so we know there is still plenty of time for the update to go live seeing as though the Apple does not give away these free gifts until Boxing Day, but we cannot understand why there is a delay. However, the strangest thing is the fact the app has been removed, or is this something that happens each year and we have only just realized this?

    My thoughts exactly. People will complain whether they get a free gift, or not. So, why bother giving something (Apple) if they and developers are only going to have to deal with so many ungrateful peoples’ comments.
    It sucks for the ones left that can understand we may not like everything, but there will be something for everyone.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple doesn’t release it this year, previous years people mostly complained about the free gifts, to the extent they absolutely pummelled the free apps and games with bad reviews, and while the free gift might not have been to your liking someone still put a lot of hard work into making it and to have it crushed by negative reviews must be disheartening.

      I agree with you; there were some really ugly remarks last year. Apple gave everyone $53 work of free gifts, so I am crossing my fingers hoping that it still shows up.

    Same here, read about the 12 days promotion deal thing that Microsoft is doing on Windows Central and I automatically thought 12 days of Christmas from apple but it’s only the 8th of December.. Hopefully they have it ready soon
