The iTunes Store has launched in another 56 countries, including India, Russia and South Africa.

These editions take the total number of markets in which the service is available to 119.

“The iTunes Store features 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. Customers can choose from over 20 million songs available to purchase and download on the iTunes Store,” reads Apple’s official statement.
