Curious Apple fans can now check out Danny Boyle's movie based on Steve Jobs's biopic at the comfort of their home as the film is currently available for pre-order via iTunes store. The biopic is all set for release on 2 February via iTunes and hence the pre-order proposition gains precedence.

Those who missed out on the opportunity of watching the biopic at a nearby theatre can pre-order a copy of the digital download on iTunes for $14.99 (£10.42). The movie casts Michael Fassbender as Jobs, the iconic co-founder of Apple, Kate Winslet as his girlfriend and Seth Rogen as Steve Woznaik. Among the talented star cast, one cannot miss Jeff Daniels, John Oriz, Michael Stuhlbarg, Katherine Waterston and Perla Haney-Jardine.

The worldwide release of the movie was handled by Universal Pictures. The screenplay credit goes to Aaron Sorkin, while the script is written by Walter Isaacson.

With an overall run time of over two hours and two minutes, the movie will be available in three formats, namely 1080p, 720p and standard-definition (SD). The download file for the 1080p version reportedly weighs around 4.87GB and the 720p version is slightly smaller at 4.46GB, while the SD edition weighs just 2.09GB.
