Enjoy entire Beatles back catalogue after selling mobile phone

All of the Beatles' songs are now available to people with an Apple iPhone

Fans of legendary British band the Beatles may be more tempted than ever to sell a mobile phone and use the cash to purchase an iPhone.

That is because the handset's manufacturer, Apple, has put the group's entire back catalogue of songs on its popular download platform iTunes.

It announced yesterday (November 16th) it had come to a deal with Apple Corps and EMI to make all 13 studio albums and a special digital box set available to customers.

Such a prospect means those with an Apple device, such as an iPhone, will be able to transfer the music to their mobile and listen to it while on the go.

"It's fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around," says Beatles member Sir Paul McCartney.

The latest incarnation of the revolutionary model, the iPhone 4, was released in the UK in June.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "Beatles fans everywhere will be excited about this news. If you’d like to access the Beatles’ back-catalogue digitally, why not upgrade your phone? You could trade-in your old handset and make some cash."
