Apple Releases New Santa-Themed Ad for iPhone 4S and Siri







Apple today released a new commercial for the iPhone 4S ahead of the Christmas holiday, showing Santa using Siri to find such information as directions and weather, search for an email with his "naughty or nice" list, and hear an email from Mrs. Claus reminding him to "go easy on the cookies". Finally, Santa asks to check his schedule for the rest of the day, only to find out that he has 3.7 billion appointments.

Apple aired its first iPhone 4S ad just after the device's debut, and followed that with three more commercials at the very end of October. Today's new ad marks the first addition to Apple's iPhone 4S ads since that time.

I do't use Siri all that much (though when I do, it's a big time-saver), but that's simply a cute commercial.

What i really love about this advert is the fact that "Siri" and "iPhone 4s" are not mentioned once, this goes to show how iconic Apple is becoming people instantly know what Apples products are we don't need telling.

Great ad.

Hasn't anyone told Apple there's a War on Christmas?

There's going to be a lot of dissapointed kids if Siri 'cannot connect to the network' that night!

I caught this ad during an NFL game just an hour back and got a kick out of it. Quite funny and effective.

If you still believe in Santa you shouldn't be getting an iPhone for Christmas.

But where's the commercial with the specs, features? How else would we know this is better than the competition?

Thanks for staying classy Apple

As usual, Apple made a good emotional connection with this advert. Well-done indeed.

The commercial only covers 18 mins 11:23 to 11:41 I think.
