Angry Birds for iOS updated with new levels, drops to free on a three-year contract

Angry Birds, the most popular mobile game of all time, has gone free on iOS for the first time ever. Today’s update also brings 15 new levels, likely to promote its Bad Piggies puzzle game, but all the previous content is available for free as well.

The game was originally released for iPhone in December 2009 and has gone on to sell over 12 million copies. It has always been available for free on Android as an ad-supported version; the same update comes to Google’s platform today, too.

Angry Birds has spawned numerous spin-off games, including Angry Birds Star Wars, and is being made into an animated television series for Nickelodeon; a 3D movie is planned for 2016.
