APPLE fans can now shop to their heart’s content at the newly launched South African version of iTunes.

The online store, which is based as an application on Apple devices such as the MacBook, iPad, iPhones and some iPods, was launched nationally yesterday, boasting a catalogue of music from local and international acts, available for download as singles or full albums.

Popular local artists such as Toya Delazy, SA’s newest “Idol”, Khaya Mthethwa, Freshlyground and Kurt Darren are all featured on the store, as well as rising stars you may have heard on the radio.

Apple spokesperson Robert Saunders said users could access more than 20 million songs from artists worldwide.

However, access to movies would only be available next year.
