Apple Ramps Up iPhone 4S Advertising with 3 New Ads featuring iCloud, Siri, and Camera




Apple is starting to ramp up its iPhone 4S advertising and has posted 3 new ads to their YouTube channel. The new ads focus on specific features found on the iPhone 4S and iOS 5, including Siri, iCloud and the new Camera.

This marks the second Siri ad that Apple has aired. The first ad was more of a teaser, only revealing Siri at the very end. This new ad shows more explicit examples of what Siri can do.

The iCloud ad shows how you can sync data across devices:


The Camera ad talks about the higher quality camera found on the iPhone 4S including editing features:

I didn't think the iPhone's camera could cause a red-eye effect.

It can; the flash is pretty much inline with the lens.

Here's an accurate ad tagline: Want your Safari book marks mangled?
iCloud can do that automatically for you and make sure there mangled on
all of your other devices within mere moments... Surf different...

LOL! Don't forget, "Want to only sometimes have push email delivered reliably to your iPhone? iCloud does that too."

"The iPhone 4S has an all new camera, with 8 megapixels and advanced optics"

This is the first time in a looong time that I've heard Apple mention something like the number of megapixels in an ad. Sorta surprised me really because the normally market the experience and not so much the tech behind it.

I love Siri and the ads are impressive as always. Apple can market.

I'd like to see Siri on the iPhone 4 though. There is talk that it may happen.

This phrase ''the most amazing iPhone YET'' makes you pause and think...
'maybe I should wait for the next one'.

"Make a change on the way to work, and it's waiting when you get there."

That is, if you do your work on an iPad, and not a Mac.

Apple needs to post a lot more "what can I do with siri" things. Trial and error isn't working out for me.

"remind me when..." is one thing that works really well.

For a nanosecond at the end you see the tiny message, "sequences shortened", and really that film editing makes quite a difference between this slick ad and the real thing...

LOL!

I have never seen so much marketing hype over just a voice activated google search interface.

Just like FaceTime, this too shall pass.

The Siri commercial is unrealistic. The man's Apple Earbuds are not falling out of his ears.

...I cant keep them in my ears, they keep poping off. I use them as they're they only headphones i have with a mic...
