If you visited the Apple website in the past day or so, you probably noticed that there was an announcement, which said “Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget. Check back here for an exciting announcement from iTunes.”
Under the announcement were four clocks, each with a different time displayed, including California (7:00 AM), New York (10:00 AM), London, (3:00 PM), and Tokyo (12:00 Midnight).
There was different speculation as to what Apple’s announcement was going to be, but many people thought that the announcement was going to be that The Beatles music was coming to iTunes, such as this blog post from TechCrunch.
Well, those people were correct, as this morning, at 10:00 AM (Eastern), Apple replaced that announcement with a photograph of The Beatles, with text above the photo saying “The Beatles. Now on iTunes.” Also, if you click on that picture, you will be taken to a page which displays another picture of the four members of the band and the words “In 1964 the band that changed everything came to America. Now they’re on iTunes.”
If you scroll down, there are three videos that you can watch, including a video entitled “The Beatles Through the Years”, Apple’s advertisements for The Beatles on iTunes, as well as a video of The Beatles performing live at the Washington Coliseum in 1964.
If you would like to purchase The Beatles’ music, you can do so for a price of $12.99 per album, $1.29 per song, or $149 for a box set of the albums.
