Remove U2's free album from your tablet, phone and iTunes account

Remove U2's free album from your tablet, phone and iTunes account
U2 / Apple Keynote 2014

U2 and Apple haters, rejoice! Apple has released an official support page to delete the unwanted U2 album from your iTunes account.

I'm sure you heard about the Apple conference last week and the release of U2's new album "Songs of Innocence." Apple's CEO Tim Cook jubilantly announced that all 500 million iTunes users would be receiving the new U2 album as a free gift.

What iTunes users didn't know was that iTunes forced the download of the "gift" to everyone with an iTunes account. For most people, this meant that a new album they probably didn't want took up storage space on their mobile gadgets and couldn't be deleted from their iTunes accounts.

After the subsequent explosion of the Internet and Twitter about the unwanted "gift," Apple has had to appease the beast. Now, iTunes has created a dedicated support page for the "SOI removal tool" to delete the "Songs of Innocence" album from your iTunes account.

Next page: Keep going to get the U2 album off of your iTunes account.
