Apple’s holiday gift to you: Even more Coldplay. Today, Apple rolled out its “12 Days of Christmas” app for iOS devices, offering free daily downloads of music and media through Jan. 6. The app — for iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and all iPads, as well as newer iPod touch devices — is available to users in the U.K., Canada, and parts of Europe; Apple did not respond to an inquiry about whether the app will be made available in the U.S. According to Boy Genius Report and others, the first free downloads are several Coldplay songs and videos, including a live album from a recent iTunes event in London.
