How To Get Rid of That U2 Album You Didn't Want
Somehow U2 managed to sneak onto all of our devices at once. Those conniving hoodlums!
After the Cupertino press conference where the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices were announced, Apple had another surprise in store for consumers: U2's new album Songs of Innocence would be making an appearance in every iPhone user's library. Obviously, not everyone's a U2 fan, and despite the album being free, there are plenty of us who simply don't want it taking up the precious space on our favorite devices. Fear not! Apple has decided to give us a simple way to remove the album, and here's how you do it.
Apple's even put up an official page on the Support section of their website to help tackle these questions, but it's really as simple as follows:
1. Head over to https://itunes.com/soi-remove.
2. Click on "Remove Album" for a one-step solution to remove the unwanted music from your iTunes account.
3. Enter your Apple ID and password to log in with the correct credentials.
4. You should get a confirmation message that the album has successfully been removed.
In case you decide you ever want the album again or have a change of heart, you've got until October 13th to redownload. After that, it will be available for purchase and you'll have to spend money. And that's probably not something you're going to want to do, so make sure a family member or friend doesn't want to give it a spin first!
