Apple Expands 'There's More to iPhone' Campaign With New Videos

Apple today expanded its "There's More to iPhone" marketing campaign to France and the United Kingdom after launching it in Germany late last year.


A new "Why iPhone" page on Apple's website in each country highlights reasons why an iPhone is "more than the device in your hand," ranging from Apple's environmental responsibility to iOS 12 performance improvements to the privacy of features such as Face ID, Apple Maps, and, yes, FaceTime.

Each reason in the list can be expanded to view additional information. Here's what Apple says about protecting user data for example:
At Apple, we believe that data privacy is a fundamental human right. Your personal data belongs to you and no one else.

And while some companies sell your data, we don't. We'll tell you if we collect your data and let you know how it's used. For instance, we may utilize that data to make iPhone more user friendly. And you can always change your settings to limit the amount of information that can be accessed.
Apple today also shared three new "There's More to iPhone" videos on its YouTube channel in the United Kingdom:




The marketing campaign is prominently featured on the iPhone page of Apple's website in France, the United Kingdom, and Germany. It has yet to launch in the United States or any other countries we checked.

Apple has been heavily promoting iPhone XR and iPhone XS trade-ins with a prominent banner on the homepage of its website, store signage, App Store editorials, emails to older iPhone users, and more. Apple provided its first revenue warning in 16 years last quarter due to "fewer iPhone upgrades" than it anticipated.

So, just another ad of self-promotion then. Talk about pretentiousness.

It's really disappointing that this is what Apple has become. Gone are the funny and memorable ads. Gone are the products worth buying. Now we just have lousy ads pushing ludicrously overpriced products with minor improvements from prior generations.

At this point I'm thinking Apple is going to have to offer a folding 5G iPhone before I upgrade from my 6+.

Um, it's called selling your product.

Apple is a business, remember?

The more Apple keeps taunting the “we are private, we are secure unlike the competition”, the more it will hit them when they get their blow.

There is no way Apple is not capitalizing and collecting data from its massive user base.

I know I must be in the minority here, but I really wish ALL the iPhones had decent, top-quality modems/cellular service. I don't care about how many cameras or lens you can cram into your too-thin iPhone, or your stupid decision to ignore the millions of users who still don't trust Bluetooth for phone call reception ("who needs headphone jacks?!"). No, I am tired of 1-2 bars, of dropped calls, of missed voice mails, no matter which carrier I choose. Gosh, Apple, you spend zazillions of dollars of pointless AI, AR, and emojis and cars that go nowhere, but you can't be bothered to find a supplier who supplies a decent, reliable antenna for reliable cell phone service. What the hell is a $1500 iPhone for, if your all-important, life-defining phone calls.... drops out in the middle of the most important part? (And, yes, this has happened to me more than once.)

so Samsung S10 pressure is working :D

So Apple wouldn’t market their products unless Samsung released the S10?

Stop trying to make everything Apple does a reaction to something else.

What app is that ?

Kind of ironic since I can track down what any user does down to its name inside our App on an iPhone

And if there is? Are you going to eat your shoes?
