Apple reveals new holiday ad, 'Someday at Christmas'

11/25, 1:17pm

Stars composer Stevie Wonder, singer Andra Daye

Apple has revealed its 2015 Christmas ad, titled "Someday at Christmas" after a 1967 song by Stevie Wonder, on its YouTube channel. The spot stars Wonder and singer Andra Daye, who duet on the piece while portraying an African-American family at Christmas, with kids running around and holiday decorations deployed. Unlike most recent Apple ads, the TV commercial does not feature any product or service, though Wonder, who has been blind since early childhood, can be seen mixing the track on a MacBook, using VoiceOver in Garageband.

Commercial itself was created using iPad Air 2, showcases student works

During the Academy Awards on Sunday night, Apple debuted a new minute-long TV commercial that features the iPad Air 2 -- not only as the subject of the ad, but also as the creative tool that created the spot.

04/22, 11:10pm

Spot features Pixies' song, array of apps and users

A new Apple ad premiered tonight on Disney-owned ABC, called "Powerful." The 90-second spot (now available on Apple's YouTube channel) is the first this year to spotlight the iPhone 5s rather than the iPhone 5c, and features a band performing the Pixies song "Gigantic" while an array of apps -- beginning with musically-oriented ones, then branching off in other directions -- is shown. Like most recent Apple ads, the focus is on enabling people to do interesting things using their iPhones.


New 60-second Apple TV ad showcases iPhone 5c, iOS 7

09/18, 6:35pm

Emphasizes the integration of color, form and function

Apple has debuted another new ad, hot on the heels of the first TV commercial that teased the iPhone 5c. The new spot showcases the integration of the colorful, youth-oriented iPhone 5c and the bright, fresh design of iOS 7. In tandem and as morphed together in the commercial, many of Apple's design choices for the product seem far more coordinated than they did when leaks of product parts and back shells were standalone items out of their full context. The 55-second ad is the first by Apple to draw attention to the now-released iOS 7.

Ad is identical to first spot shown during iPhone rollout last week

The short "liquid plastic" advertisement that was first shown during Apple's iPhone media event last week has now debuted on television, striking a different tone than the previous iPhone 5 ads by highlighting the colorful back shell of the updated iPhone 5c. The ad, now titled "Plastic Perfected," features a track from the group Sleigh Bells and ends with the tagline "coming soon," referring to the device's retail debut on Friday. The ad doesn't highlight any features, but the iPhone 5c has very few changes from the iPhone 5 on a hardware level.

Emphasizes educational and media apps

Apple has posted and broadcast a new ad for the iPad 2 entitled "Learn" that shows off the various educational and media abilities of the iPad, from mastering chess to playing an instrument and learning a language. The tone seems aimed at adults rather than specifically children or parents, leading off with scenes of a user watching a video using the TEDTalks app in a subtle acknowledgement that iPads also have strong appeal among older people.
