Apple just posted two new iPhone 5 television ads. The ads are entitled 'Orchestra' and 'Turkey'. Orchestra focuses on the microphones that Apple uses to reduce background noise during calls. Turkey shows off the Shared Photo Stream feature of iOS 6.

Well, it's that time of year again.
You know, picture taking season?
And, with Photo Stream, you can share all the photos you want.
With just the people you want.
It's as easy as pie. Mmmm... pie.

Where can I get an iPhone 5 that simply says "LTE" as the carrier and NOT AT&T or Verizon in the states?

The pictures in the turkey one look really yellow and muggy. They look like pictures I'd take with my iPhone, not apple marketing materials.

Question is, is that microphone in the 5 somehow better than the 4 or did they just change the shape of the darn thing and they expect people to upgrade?

Seems like they're making a bug deal about the noise reducing microphone. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this technology not-so-new, and don't many other phones use it?

I just don't like the feel of these.. I know they aren't snobbish but the orchestra one comes off that way.

Either Jailbreak and edit it, or wait for Apple to become a wireless carrier. The latter would be as tasty as well, pie :p

I agree with the comment about the photos; it was the first thing I thought as well. They all have that artificial light tint to them that us "amateurs" often experience. I would think for a commercial they would have used higher quality pics.

There is another mic in the 5.

I am a big fan of the new ads. I like them. Much better then the "Genius" ones.

I actually think that the iPhone 5's microphones are an often forgotten feature that I think is really important.

Haha I agree. I think showing the carrier constantly is unnecessary. Make it an option to just keep it on the lockscreen or something.

How on earth is that snobbish? Have you seen some of Apple's ads against competitors? Have you seen SAMSUNG'S ADS!?

I can't believe that a Mac oriented website is posting embedded video that I can't view on my iPad.

Works on my iPad. Did you turn off YouTube in Settings? Because if you did, then, surprisingly enough, YouTube videos don't play.
