Apple Shares New 'Sway' Holiday Ad Featuring AirPods and iPhone X

Apple traditionally shares a touching holiday ad in November or December, and this year's spot, Sway, was uploaded to the company's YouTube channel this afternoon.

The ad shows off both the iPhone X and the AirPods, featuring a woman dancing through a snowy city to the song "Palace" by Sam Smith. She runs into a partner, imagines sharing an AirPod with him, and the two of them go on to briefly fall in love before returning to reality where they pass by each other in the street.


Past Apple holiday ads have been well-received and have even won awards, including the company's 2013 ad "Misunderstood," featuring an iPhone 5s being used to capture holiday activities like baking cookies and decorating a Christmas tree.

Last year's ad featured Frankenstein's monster participating in some holiday cheer.

Putting your EarPod into another person's ear is highly unhygienic.

Wtf happened to the 2nd airpod in the end? She didn't take it back... Are they releasing transparent Airpods?


You missed the whole idea of the ad

...
How are people not understanding that the majority of this ad is capturing a feeling she had in a split second and didn't literally happen?

The choreography is stunning and I think this ad is beautiful.

I'm usually a fan of Apple's ads, but not really feeling this one.

Apple has fixed the unresponsive iPhone X under cold climate with the iOS 11.1.2 update, which has been out for over a week now.
