Apple Releases New Santa-Themed Ad for iPhone 4S and Siri

iphone 4s ad siri santa appointments
Apple today released a new commercial for the iPhone 4S ahead of the Christmas holiday, showing Santa using Siri to find such information as directions and weather, search for an email with his "naughty or nice" list, and hear an email from Mrs. Claus reminding him to "go easy on the cookies". Finally, Santa asks to check his schedule for the rest of the day, only to find out that he has 3.7 billion appointments.


Apple aired its first iPhone 4S ad just after the device's debut, and followed that with three more commercials at the very end of October. Today's new ad marks the first addition to Apple's iPhone 4S ads since that time.

What i really love about this advert is the fact that "Siri" and "iPhone 4s" are not mentioned once, this goes to show how iconic Apple is becoming people instantly know what Apples products are we don't need telling.

There's going to be a lot of dissapointed kids if Siri 'cannot connect to the network' that night!
