Apple released a new tool to allow users to delete U2’s Songs of Innocence, the album that was made available for free to all Apple customers.

How To Return U2's Free Album

To celebrate the announcement of the iPhone 6, Apple Watch and more at the big Apple event, Apple informed users that U2’s first new album in 5 years would be waiting in their iTunes library, ready for free download.

Unfortunately, not all 500 million iTunes account-holders wanted the rock band’s album. Even worse, reports revealed that Apple paid the band over $100 million to make the ‘gift’ possible. Only 2 million users reportedly downloaded the album, and the backlash came, in part, from a group of younger users who had never even heard of U2.
