Apple Debuts Music-Themed iPad Air 2 Ad Ahead of Grammy Awards
Ahead of tonight's telecast of the 57th annual Grammy Awards, Apple has debuted a new music-themed iPad commercial titled "Change" featuring Swedish singer Elliphant, Los Angeles-based producer Gaslamp Killer, and English DJ Riton.
The ad shows the three musicians composing a remix to Elliphant's "All Or Nothing" entirely on an iPad, from initial songwriting, production, recording, and more. Apps shown throughout the add include Apple's GarageBand for songwriting, iMPC Pro for production, Serato Remote for live performances and Manual Camera for filming video.
Billboard also reports that Apple CEO Tim Cook and SVP of Internet Software and Services were the focus of much attention at a pre-Grammy party held by record producer Clive Davis. Apple is estimated to have paid upwards of $2 million for its Grammy ad.
The new iPad ad follows rumors of a revamped Beats Music subscription service, with a report last week noting that Apple would be charging $7.99 per month for access on OS X , iOS, Apple TV, and Android. Apple is expected to relaunch Beats Music later this year, possibly at June during the company's annual Worldwide Developer's Conference.

Software quality control has gone down like 10 pegs (figuratively at least), commercials are a joke...Apple, it's not too late.
Making music on an iPad is niche and only a handful of people would do it. Most will do it on their laptop and computers.
In short, iPad should be way more powerful and functional than it is to make it worthwhile. Some might not be agree with me, but it's still a giant iPhone without the phone part. It's still not able to substitute a Mac or computer completely.
You may not like the ads but this shows the usefulness of iPad. Compare to others.. showing specs..
Even me, i dont like the song. I dont know them... But watching these video shows the power of an iPad, how people use thier iPad.
I like that stickers on the back. :apple:
