The Beatles arrive on iTunes

It’s official – today’s big iTunes announcement is indeed the coming of the Fab Four to Apple’s music parlour.

The Beatles are now on iTunes, with a big pic of the four members of the band back in the day splashed across Apple.com, alongside the statement: “In 1964 the band that changed everything came to America. Now they’re on iTunes.”

You can now download your favourite tracks from all 13 of the Beatles’ original studio albums on iTunes. Or if you’re feeling particularly flush, you can buy the full set for £125.

Steve Jobs commented: “We love the Beatles and are honoured and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes. It has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realizing a dream we’ve had since we launched iTunes ten years ago.”

As we predicted, there was no announcement about a streaming music service. You’ll hear about that one long before Apple can get the press event organised, guaranteed…
