Apple’s New ‘If It’s Not an iPhone, It’s Not an iPhone’ Commercial Tout Whole Widget Model

Apple launched a new series of commercials on Thursday with the tagline: "If it's not an iPhone, it's not an iPhone." The company posted Hardware & Software to its YouTube channel, a spot that says, "unlike most smartphones, we design the hardware part and the software part. So the hardware part makes the most of the software part, and the software part makes the most of the hardware part. Yep. When you design the whole phone, all the parts work together as one amazing part. If it's not an iPhone, it's not an iPhone." This marks the first time I can recall Apple making its whole widget strategy a stated part of its marketing. I like this spot. A lot. That might mean it's preaching to the choir, but I'm hoping the message sinks in with consumers.
