Apple today launched two new ads featuring the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which are once again voiced by Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake and highlight features like the iPhone 6's gaming capabilities and its ability to relay phone calls to Macs and iPads.

In the first humorous ad, entitled "Gamers," the focus is on the A8 chip in the iPhone 6, with the ad showing off the recently released multiplayer online battle arena game Vainglory. "The A8 chip is so powerful it brings gaming to the next level. I mean if you're into that kind of thing," says Fallon, before bantering with Timberlake about the gameplay.

The new ads launched today are the fifth and sixth iPhone 6 ads that Apple has released starring Fallon and Timberlake. The first two ads, "Duo" and "Health" were shown off during the iPhone 6's September debut, and two additional ads, "Huge" and "Cameras," were released later in September.

I love Apple's advertising techniques. Maybe other companies should not bash Apple and take a look at how they make their ads!

These ads were brought to you with a grant from the Mute Button Awareness Foundation. The MBAF is proud to be in partnership with Apple.

You can't get much worse than that. I hope. Cheesy, tacky, unoriginal. Show off the features - don't have two characters having a fake & stupid conversation with each other.

Those ads are just horrible. The first was just a jumble of chat that went in one ear and out the other, and the second was just a mess of information that no sane person could possibly understand.

Heck, I use continuity and handoff on a daily basis and I'm still not sure what was going on in that second ad. I have no intention of watching it again to find out, either.

Unoriginal?
Yes, I'd say unoriginal. The content of the ad was bland, the voiceovers just plain stupid. There was no 'oomph'.

If Apple said to anyone inexperienced in advertising on this forum to make an ad, I'm sure they would have no problem devising one very similar to the one that they've produced here. It's just rubbish.

They were both great and I actually lol'd. But in the second ad, the Continuity demonstration seemed to be somewhat confusing in the way how they presented the devices.

EDIT: I think it's just too late (at night)...

Steve would NEVER have not allowed these ads!

Is it bad that I actually chuckled with the second one? I just wish that Continuity would actually work as advertised, but sadly it still has a ton of bugs.

LOL you should learn the meaning of "unoriginal" .

You can say whatever you want about the add, worst ever if you want, but not "unoriginal".

No...

Couldn't be more off; the ads were charming, they didn't attack any other product, and I think it's pretty obvious they were showing off the features EXACTLY pertaining the title of the ads.
