Typhoon Haiyan has devestated the Phillipines, and Apple is trying to do something about it: following the perfect storm’s landfall, Apple is now accepting donations to the Red Cross via iTunes.

Although hardly unique — Apple has been known to accept donations on the Red Cross’s behalf during previous humanitarian disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy and the Japanese Tsunami — the iTunes donation system does, at least, streamline the donation process for those who have an iTunes account.

So far, Typhoon Haiyan has killed over 10,000 people, but that estimate is expected to rise. Over half a million people are without shelter in the Typhone’s wake.

If you’d like to donate, there’s no easier way than to hit and throw some money to the Red Cross. You can donate $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or $200 with just the click of a button.
