New U2 album may be preloaded on Apple’s iPhone 6

“We received a tip earlier today regarding a possible U2 and Apple tie-up for the iPhone 6. It seems to be mostly speculation at this point, but some local journalists claim that U2’s latest video shoot in Dublin last week starred a possible next-gen iPhone,” Jordan Kahn reports for 9to5Mac. “They also claim the device will come preloaded with a U2 album.”

“Of course U2’s past relationship with Apple and collaborations for the iPod and marketing campaigns is one thing, but in recent weeks we’ve received other tips regarding a U2 partnership,” Kahn reports. “In addition, there have been rumblings in the U2 fan blog world about the band recently shooting a commercial for Apple.”

Kahn reports, “If the reports from local journalists keeping track of the video shoot in Dublin are to be believed, Apple could be planning to bundle a U2 album with at least one of its new iPhones and the band could debut its new single for that album on September 9.”

    1. It is a *tip* of a *possible* conflation and even the article says that it *seems to be mostly speculation at this point*.

      Fans of Apple have to shape up and shake off the B.S. This rumor mill runs every year, and since Job’s death the story has been FUD failure FUD Tim Cook FUD disaster FUD production problems FUD lack of innovation FUD FUD FUD. In fact, the rumor mill is pretty much continuous nowadays. And what that should tell you is that people are interested in Apple. People care about Apple. Apple matters. As long as the rumor mill is centered on Apple, everything is A-OK.

      Relax. It is that time of the year again and the holidays are approaching.

  1. Christ, first-world problem anyone?
    It’s an album, it’ll either be an app, (unlikely), or it’ll be in iTunes. Either option means it can be removed easily. The amount of whining from supposedly grown men astounds me sometimes.
