Rumours and speculation was sparked yesterday when Apple unveiled a seemingly cryptic event announcement declaring: "Tomorrow is just another day. That you’ll never forget. Check back here tomorrow for an exciting announcement from iTunes.” alongside an image of four world clocks for California, New York, London and Tokyo.

Whilst many predicted the arrival of the Beatles back catalogue, many iTunes users and industry experts will still be turning their heads to the Apple event in the hope of the announcement of live streaming or a Mac App Store, two of the other hotly rumoured inbound iTunes updates.

The Beatles albums are available to download from iTunes now with prices starting at £10.99. The full Beatles Box set collection will set wannabe downloaders back £125.

With The Beatles catalogue landing in the iTunes Store will that see John, George, Paul and Ringo shooting back to the top of the charts as a new era of music fans discover the magical delights of the infamous band from Liverpool? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
