Apple Shares New 'Half Court' Ad Showing Off Live Photos on iPhone 6s

Just a day after debuting three new iPhone 6s ads focused on the iPhone's camera and wireless "Hey Siri" functionality, Apple has shared a new short 15-second ad in the same series, this time focusing on Live Photos.

In the "Half Court" ad, the iPhone 6s is used to capture a half-court shot made by Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, which is then played back again.

The iPhone 6s is here, and the only thing that's changed with the camera is everything. Because now you can shoot amazing Live Photos. Bringing every moment, big or small, to life with just a touch.

Yesterday's longer camera-focused iPhone 6s ad also featured a shot by Stephen Curry and both ads come just ahead of the start of the 2015-2016 NBA Regular season. The two ads may be featured during the Cavaliers/Bulls and Pelicans/Warriors games, set to be broadcast on TNT.

Over the course of the last several weeks, Apple has launched more than five videos to market the iPhone 6s, which have focused on 3D Touch, Siri, and the new camera features in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Apple has also released a number of Apple Watch ads highlighting Apple Music, Apple Pay, Siri, and more.

Terrible ad for a terrific feature. Live photos have proven their worth to me, but it's perplexing how this ad survived a brainstorming session to get funded, choreographed, and celebrity endorsed.

These are some expensive ads when you start adding in major celebrities. Nice ads, but still it says something that Apple needs to go to a bunch of cool guys instead of just showing the product. Also, as much as I like Steph Curry (see my logo, I'm a big basketball fan) I'm not getting much emotion out of this ad. Also I've yet to take a live photo successfully. Timing seems way too tricky.
