Apple Ramps Up iPhone 4S Advertising with 3 New Ads featuring iCloud, Siri, and Camera


Apple is starting to ramp up its iPhone 4S advertising and has posted 3 new ads to their YouTube channel. The new ads focus on specific features found on the iPhone 4S and iOS 5, including Siri, iCloud and the new Camera.

This marks the second Siri ad that Apple has aired. The first ad was more of a teaser, only revealing Siri at the very end. This new ad shows more explicit examples of what Siri can do.

The iCloud ad shows how you can sync data across devices:



The Camera ad talks about the higher quality camera found on the iPhone 4S including editing features:

"Because its an iPhone, it can do what no other phone can"....crop, rotate, remove red eye, and tweet photo. No other phone can do that?


NO ORDINARY CAMERA can do....it didn't say ANYTHING about other phones...sheesh

I love how iPhone commercials actually speaks about things the phone can do i real life situations.

As opposed to motorola for example which makes it commercials look like a poor mans version of Blade Runner.

Here's an accurate ad tagline: Want your Safari book marks mangled?
iCloud can do that automatically for you and make sure there mangled on
all of your other devices within mere moments... Surf different...


I've honestly never had problems sync'ing bookmarks between an iPhone, iPad, and two Macs.

I don't like the music in these commercials. I don't really like these commercials. Their not that creative, rebellious, inspiring, cool as they used to be... And as amazing as SIRI is I don't think her voice or cadence is ready for prime time on the commercials, it sounds kind of cheap and stilted...


So are they suppose to be using imported Dub-Step filler music and Quick zoom shots?

:p

I'm waiting on the "English Weegie" setting for Siri.

User: "Pyoor burstin' fur a pish, where's the nearest bog, hen"?

Siri: "A'fun this fur ye, the nearest bog is up aheid ... there's a lane oan yer right hawn side ye can nip in tae fur a quick slash".

I didn't think the iPhone's camera could cause a red-eye effect.


It can; the flash is pretty much inline with the lens.

Although I agree with your push for a more natural voice for Siri, you've lost credibility. This is the 2nd wrong use of "their" in two pages of a single thread. Is it really that hard to learn the difference? It seems like such an enormous struggle for people nowadays. Maybe I'm old-fashioned. I just don't understand the challenge. I don't know.

Anyway, how would Apple make Siri's voice more fluid? Is it even possible since she has to piece together individual words instead of just set phrases?

Now that someone has Siri running in an iPhone 4, I'm wondering why Apple did something so transparently nasty to try to rope people into buying their new phone.


There's nothing 'transparently nasty' about what Apple did. The only outrage is both hilarious and pathetic. Limiting some new software features to new hardware is hardly a new concept. iPhone 4 got 95% of the new features through software- why is everyone acting as if they're ENTITLED to 100% of all new features if they're technically possible?? Yes, it's partly marketing, for obvious reasons. There may be also a dozen other reasons. Maybe, for example. they didn't think they could handle the current 100+ million iPhone 4s slamming the servers with Siri requests, along with all the new 4S purchases? Apple doesn't owe you Siri on your current devices. Nobody even knew the feature existed until 3 weeks ago. Get some perspective, there's nothing duplicitous about it.
