Yesterday saw online rumours that Apple was about to launch its iTunes Store in Russia, but it turned out the company had rather grander global ambitions to announce. Yes, the store is now live in Russia, but also Turkey, India, South Africa and 52 more countries. On the music side, the store has a catalogue of 20m songs: “Local artists including Elka in Russia, Sezen Aksu in Turkey, AR Rahman in India, and Zahara in South Africa, international artists including The Beatles, Taylor Swift and Coldplay, and world-renowned classical musicians including Lang Lang, Yo Yo Ma and Yuja Wang,” as Apple’s announcement puts it. iTunes is now available in 119 countries, as Apple continues a similarly-aggressive rollout of its iOS devices.
