Yesterday, Apple released a new commercial for their redesigned Apple Music as part of iOS 10. Unlike their previous Apple Music advertisements, it does not feature a famous person (like James Corden), but it does walkthrough many of the new features of the app.
The commercial starts with first looking at the features of the Music app that does not require an Apple Music subscription. Artists are laid out similar to the friends in the Contacts app with the exception of added pictures and albums are also laid out like albums in the Photos app. This is design is the same whether you pay for Apple Music or you do not.
On Monday, Apple posted a new commercial for the 12.9″ iPad Pro on their YouTube channel. The commercial, which is entitled iPad Pro – What’s a Computer?, claims the iPad is as powerful as a full computer. The iPad is seen with Apple’s Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil. The narrator runs through a few tasks like typing on the keyboard, multitasking to another app, using the Apple Pencil, and split-screen view for Powerpoint and Messages running side-by-side with Netflix playing a video. The commercial ends with suggesting your computer could be much better if it was an iPad Pro.
The new commercial can be seen below or watched directly on YouTube with their other ads.
With all the craziness from iPhone 7 design sketches and rumors coming out this week, I decided to take a short break in our content and share a recent commercial showing off the iPhone 6s with hands-free Siri. This ad star Neil Patrick Harris (and Siri), who also starred in a recent commercial titled Onions. In this one, he asks Siri to read a note titled “Thank You Speech” and he mouths it while she says it.
Earlier this week, Apple released another Apple Music commercial featuring Taylor Swift. Although this is not as comical as the last one, with Taylor Swift falling on a treadmill, this one is amount her jamming out to “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World while preparing to go out.
Apple’s other commercials, including their recently added seven Apple Watch ads, can be viewed on their YouTube page.
Yesterday, Apple released a new commercial that focuses on the new 3D Touch display of the iPhone 6s, specifically its new “Peek and Pop” feature. This allows you to peek at a link, picture, etc. with a light press without completely opening it. A deep press will open it like any other iPhone would. The ad also has a brief cameo appearance with Jamie Foxx.
On Monday, Apple released three new Apple Watch commercials that showcase specific categories of apps: music, fitness and travel. These advertisements follow three others that Apple posted earlier this month for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The first commercial, which is called “Music”, shows off three music apps available on the Apple Watch. We briefly see Shazam, Pacemaker DJ and StubHub.
The second commercial is all about fitness apps available on Apple Watch. In the commercial, which is called “Fitness Apps,” we see several apps with Nike+, WaterMinder and MLB.com being showcased.
The final commercial is entitled “Travel Apps” and as you may have figured, this shows off three travel apps available. We briefly see Expedia, Uber and Yelp on the Apple Watch.
Remember that hilarious video that kicked off the WWDC 2015 keynote? Well, Apple has uploaded it to their YouTube channel for the world to watch again and again.
In case you missed it, the video stars SNL‘s Bill Hader as director David LeGary planning a superb opening number for the WWDC 2015 keynote. There’s a few inside jokes, celebrity guests and famous characters from apps, like one of the Angry Birds, and there’s also a dozen Tim Cook lookalikes.
If you missed the keynote, check out our summary post about everything announced. The entire keynote is available for your viewing pleasure on Apple’s website as well.
On Thursday night, Apple aired three new commercials that announced the Apple Watch is here. These ads focus on using the watch when you first wake up and during your morning commute, using it communicate with your friends and loved ones and the final one shows the health and fitness side of the Apple Watch.
The first commercial, ‘Rise’, is all about using the watch in the morning and during the morning commute. We see people checking incoming messages, looking at the train schedule, using the watch as their boarding pass at an airport and more.
In the second commercial, which is called ‘Us’, we see the communication features of the Apple Watch. It is used as a new communication tool between friends, families and loved ones. We see people drawing pictures to each other, sending animated emojis, viewing missed calls and more.
The final commercial, called ‘Up’, focuses on the fitness and health aspect of the watch. It shows people working out, bicycling, running, hiking a mountain, walking up stairs and more with the Apple Watch tracking all of their movements with its internal sensors.

During the Oscars on Sunday night, Apple aired a new commercial for the iPad Air 2 called “Make a film with iPad.” They filmed (on an iPad Air 2) students at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts using their iPads to create, write, shoot, edit and score films. The narrator is Martin Scorsese.
Apple has a dedicated section on the App Store that shows off some great apps that can be used to create brilliant films. There are apps for writing the script, filming, recording sound and creating a special look.
On a side note, if I wanted to film myself painting, I would make sure I had a case on my iPad so it wouldn’t get covered in paint :).
