Apple Shares New 'The Underdogs' Video Focusing on Apple Products at Work

Apple this afternoon shared a humorous new video on its YouTube channel focusing on using Apple products at work.

The spot kicks off with a design team that has just a few days to come up with a round pizza box prototype for an important meeting, which they manage to pull off using Apple's iPhones, iPads, and laptops. The round pizza box in the video is the actual pizza box patented by Apple and used at the Caffé Macs cafeteria for Apple employees in Cupertino.


Features shown off include Continuity Camera for scanning a document from an iPhone right to a Mac, Group FaceTime, Hey Siri, AirDrop, iPad multitasking, and more.

The Apple Pencil is used for design purposes, as are the iWork apps on Macs and Microsoft's suite of apps. The video ends with the tagline "This is Apple at work," and the description links to Apple's business site with more information on the apps and services in the video.

Apple products help employees work more simply and productively, solve problems creatively, and collaborate with a shared purpose. And they're all designed to work together beautifully. When people have the power to work the way they want, with the tools they love, they can do their best work and change the future of their business.

Apple has shared multiple iPad Pro videos in the past, but this is the first ‌iPad‌ and Mac focused video that's been aimed at Apple's enterprise customers.

Glad they're spending time on that stuff rather than the Mac Pro or fixing these blasted butterfly keyboards.
Thanks Tim Apple, I feel better now!

Years ago, Apple used to have a Mac At Work site which featured case studies of how different customers used Macs in their business. They even had case studies about companies which most people assumed did not use Macs at all, but were revealed to have a significant Mac presence. Now Apple's business site is filled with nothing but fluffy Apple marketing copy as far as Mac is concerned, with no more real customer articles.
