Apple has now made a move to start helping people get rid of the free U2 album “Songs Of Innonce” from their iTunes accounts, after a boat load of complaints from people expressing their disinterest and displease in the automatic download.
The free gift was unwelcome by many iTunes users who to took to social media to complain about lost iPhone storage space due to an album they didn’t want and couldn’t figure out how to delete.
“If you would like U2′s Songs of Innocence’ removed from your iTunes music library and iTunes purchases, you can choose to have it removed,” Apple said at a launched its SOI Removal web page that allows people to delete the album with one click.
Apple warned that once “Songs of Innocence” was removed, it could not be gotten back free of charge.
“I managed to delete U2 off my iPhone. It’s a beautiful day,” one Twitter user said in a message playing off a verse from one of the band’s hit songs.
The digital album was made available free to anyone who has, or opens, an iTunes account by October 13.
