Apple Promotes iPhone XR's Battery Life in New Ad: 'You'll Lose Power Before It Will'

The 30-second spot shows various people falling asleep while using an iPhone, including a parking attendant streaming an Inter Milan game, a woman laying on a couch and playing a game, and a man sitting on the end of a bed and watching a baby monitor, setting up the tagline "you'll lose power before it will."

Apple Shares New Apple Watch Videos on Fall Detection and Heart Health

Apple today shared additional videos in its ongoing Apple Watch tutorial series, highlighting health-related Apple Watch features that include fall detection and heart health notifications. The two short videos are tutorials that are designed to walk Apple Watch Series 4 owners through enabling these features.

Fall detection uses the gyroscope and the accelerometer to detect a fall, and then it contacts emergency services. Heart health notifications let you know when your heart rate is too low, too high, or if an irregular rhythm that looks like atrial fibrillation is detected. Apple has shared several videos in its Apple Watch tutorial series so far, with the aim of introducing people to all of the features available in the Series 4

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.

Apple Shares New Video Focusing on Limited Ad Tracking in Safari

Apple today shared a humorous new privacy-focused ad on its YouTube channel, highlighting the ad tracking prevention features that have been built into Safari. In the spot, a 15-year-old boy with a wispy mustache stands in front of a mirror and looks up when he should be shaving, a search he presumably wouldn't want to be tracked. It's followed with text that reads: "Safari limits sites from tracking you across the web, because what you browse should be your business." Apple has been highlighting the privacy features of the iPhone in its recent advertising campaign, and today's video follows a funny video from earlier in the month highlighting situations where people would want their privacy protected in everyday life.

Apple Says 'Privacy Matters' in Humorous New iPhone Ad

Apple today shared a new privacy-focused iPhone ad on its YouTube channel. The ad will premiere tonight and air through March Madness in the United States before expanding to select other markets globally. The 45-second video starts with the tagline "privacy matters" and then shows a variety of humorous if not slightly awkward situations where people would want their privacy protected in everyday life. In one scene, for example, two men briefly pause their conversation while a waitress is at their table. "If privacy matters in your life, it should matter to the phone your life is on," the ad concludes. "Privacy. That's iPhone." The ad arrives around six weeks after a major FaceTime bug was uncovered that allowed one person to call another person over FaceTime and listen to that other person's audio without the call being answered. Apple fixed the bug in iOS 12.1.4 and apologized, but it certainly wasn't good for its reputation. Apple similarly promoted its privacy stance with a billboard near CES 2019 in Las Vegas that read "what happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone." Bugs aside, Apple really does place an emphasis on privacy, especially compared to some other tech giants like Facebook. Apple has long said it believes privacy is a "fundamental human right," and as part of that, it aims to minimize its collection of customer data and disassociate it from an individual user when it

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.

The man, who appears to be jealous, uses Depth Control to blur out Alejandro's face. This is the second humorous Depth Control ad that Apple has shared this month, following its "Bokeh'd" spot in which one mother accuses another mother of blurring her child out of a photo.
