Check out the Amazing Colors in Apple's 'iPhone X' Commercial

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple released a bunch of solid commercials Tuesday, but iPhone X is my favorite. It uses some gorgeous colors splashing around as a lure for the devices OLED screen. The colors grabbed my attention during the keynote when it was first shown. They reminded me a lot of the 70s’ kid’s toy, the Magic Window, but with a lot more colors. It’s compelling, bold, striking, and sexy. Interestingly, text at the end of the spot indicates that it hasn’t been approved by the FCC, and specifies that it can’t be sold until it is.

Watch Apple Watch Series 3 'Dear Apple' Commercial

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple published a new commercial called Dear Apple. it promotes Apple Watch Series 3 by looking at letters that have been written to Apple and CEO Tim Cook. There will probably be shorter versions aired on TV, but the full version below is two minutes and 38 seconds. The testimonials range from health uses, sports cases, diabetes, car crashes, and a Russian cyborg (for real). I think it’s a great video.

Apple Brilliantly Personifies iPhone Security

· · Cool Stuff Found

There are three new “Why Switch” videos on YouTube. Contacts is clever and does a pretty good job of conveying that it’s easy to move your contacts to iPhone from “your phone.” Smooth makes a good case that video is smoother on iPhone. But Security, now that one is brilliant. It personifies iPhone’s inherent security advantage over (the unnamed) Android in a funny, concise, and elegant way. It’s easy to understand, and I think it’s entertaining. You can watch it below.

Apple's New Switcher Campaign — for iPhone

· · News

Still from Apple's Jump Commercial

Apple launched a new advertising campaign called Switch to iPhone at apple.com/switch. The campaign trades the white of the company’s original I’m a PC campaign for dark pastels and simple, compelling imagery. The message is that it’s simple to switch to iPhone, which is faster, that your music will sound better, and that moving your photos is easy. Watch the four videos that make that argument in our full story.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus Commercial Channels Love Making the World Disappear

· · Cool Stuff Found

Ever been in love? Know how love can sometimes make the whole world disappear into the background? Apple is channeling that in a new iPhone 7 Plus commercial called The City. With the sweet and touching “Sing to Me” by Walter Martin (feat. Karen O), the spot shows two young lovers sheening around a crowded city taking pictures of one another as the the world around them vanishes. “Focus on what you love” with “Portrait Mode in iPhone 7 Plus” are the taglines in the spot. There’s a line from Castle when Becket’s asked how do you know when you’re in love? Her answer: “All the songs make sense.” It’s a great line, and perhaps that’s why this spot resonates with me personally. It definitely makes sense.

Apple Answers Laptop Complaints with iPad Spots

Screenshot from iPad Pro— Light and powerful

Apple published two new commercials in its iPad Pro series addressing laptop complaints. In case that reads too smoothly and it didn’t smack you upside the head, as we said when I was a wee lad, Apple is answering complaints about laptops with the iPad Pro. Not with MacBook Pro. Or MacBook. Or the legacy MacBooK Air that is still being sold. No, Apple is answering laptop complaints with an iPad Pro promotion.

Great New Apple Spot Urges You to 'Live Bright' with Apple Watch Series 2

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple has a new spot out called Apple Watch Series 2 — Live Bright. I love this spot, too. Great soundtrack in the form of Beyoncé’s “Freedom (feat. Kendrick Lamar)” from Lemonade—and I’m just guessing that cost a pretty penny or two. The commercial also features compelling imagery of people using their AWS2 in bright, colorful, energetic settings. It’s a great spot that fires on all cylinders.

New Apple iPad Pro Spot Shows the Power of Apple Pencil to Sign Documents

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple has a new entrant in its iPad Pro commercials where the company responds to tweets from real people. The new one is called No more printing, and shows how you can use iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to sign documents. It’s anchored around a tweet from @ROSESplease about printing personal documents on the company printer. I thought these spots were interesting when they launched, and found it interesting that Apple was interacting indirectly with social media and tweets from real folks. As time goes on, however, I find that I don’t think about these adds at all. That certainly wasn’t true with many other Apple campaigns. Then again, I’m not the target demo for these spots. This is the fifth spot in the series, making it likely they’re performing well for Apple.
