After 11 years, iTunes "Single Of The Week" is no more

iPod+iTunes Island Ad

BusinessInsider is reporting that Apple is ending its longstanding "Single Of The Week" promotion after 11 years. As the name implies, Apple, for 11 years on end, promoted a new song every week that iTunes users could download for free.

No free songs have appeared on iTunes in 2015, making people wonder whether Apple has killed off the promotion for good.

"Bob Foss" writing on the official Apple support forum, says an Apple employee confirmed to him that the promotion has been discontinued.

The discussion post in question reads, "I contacted iTunes Support and they told me the decision was made to drop the free Single of the Week. Seems they don't want people browsing the Store anymore. I told them that the free single each week got me to the Store and I usually bought a few songs. Now, there's less reason to go. They've stopped the free single in other countries too."
