Apple has just released two brand new TV ads for iPhone that say ‘If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone.’ The ads, which are available to view right now, are entitled ‘Loved’ and ‘Hardware & Software.’
The first video, entitled ‘Loved,’ is an energetic creation that starts with a rousing backing track and almost immediately kicks in with a powerful voiceover that introduces the iPhone. The voiceover proclaims that the iPhone “comes with something different,” citing the fact that 99% of those who own an iPhone “love” their iPhone. Scrolling through a massive mosaic of iPhone 6’s, the ad shows the device being used for various things – like FaceTime calling, media messaging, capturing HD video, and even distributing the odd emoji here and there.
The second video, dubbed ‘Hardware & Software,’ is a thirty-second clip that focuses on the fact that Apple designs both the hardware and the software to work harmoniously together. The video is extremely simplistic but does a fantastic job of getting across the mantra that “the hardware part makes the most of the software part, and the software part makes the most of the hardware part.” An extremely simple concept but one that users sometimes don’t appreciate. “When you design the whole phone, all of the parts work together as one amazing part”. A very simple, logical but extremely powerful message that sets the iPhone apart from the competition.
Both videos last for a duration of thirty-seconds and sign off with the tagline “if it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone,” which is a homage to Apple’s previous “if you don’t have an iPhone, you don’t have an iPhone“ campaign that was so popular a few years back when the iPhone 4 was knocking around.
As we move closer to an announcement regarding the next-generation iPhone, it looks like Apple is ramping up its marketing machine in an attempt to clear stock of older and current-generation devices.
