Apple offering free Newsstand magazines for UK bank holiday

Apple is running an offer for UK customers where they can claim free magazine issues in the lead up to bank holiday Monday.

Head on over to the Newsstand app on your iPad or iPhone, or the App Store through iTunes on your computer, and you’ll find a selection of five top magazine issues available for free download.

Yesterday there were five others. Tomorrow there’ll be five more. In fact, there’ll be five new free digital magazine issues every day from Monday 18 August through to (and including) Friday 22 August.

It all seems to be part of a UK-only offer Apple has launched ahead of the forthcoming bank holiday weekend. On iTunes, the offer can be found under a dedicated “Summer Reading” banner.

Magazine issues that have been featured so far include GQ, Q, Photography Week, Red, The Economist, Focus, NME, Glamour, and T3.

Note that it’s not enough to simply hit the download button for each magazine from iTunes. Though they’ll appear in your Newsstand app, you’ll need to go into each individually and select the free issue from the publisher portal on the day of download, or you won’t get access.

If you fancy the idea of a lazy bank holiday Monday, head on over to iTunes and get downloading.
