    you know, the mandatory white background video where he says stuff like "The iPhone 8 is quite literally joy in your hand. We have never designed a product so sleek, attractive, etc, etc, etc." I miss those.

    Now they just show pictures and put some techno music. Getting lazy Apple

    they didn't do this for the 7
    they're less common now
    the X is the really fresh designed product they're trying to push.

    Thank you!

    I wanna vomit whenever I hear him speak. His voice reminds me of Simon cowell and he is just fake as f. He belongs in a kardashian reality show with that monotone voice.

    Lol. You would've loved it when he spoke with a head wobble* to promote the animojis.

    *Australian phrase, referring to someone with a high opinion of themselves.

    Did you really think they would make two separate videos, one for the 8 and one for the X?....

    Yes, because in 2013, he made videos for iPhone 5c and 5S, which were announced on the same day.

    guess he didn't have anything to say about the mostly same design... ;)

    but you can watch the X video, if you miss his voice

    The iphone X leads me to believe that Jony needs to be fired. Along with the entire QA team who seem to just be "oh that's a wonderful idea!".

    This sort of garbage is what kills Microsoft. Too many yes men, no one capable of calling a crap idea a crap idea.

    They need someone who will call a spade a spade and not sugar coat it, like Steve.

    Ok I'll take a crack at it.

    "The iPhone 8 and 8 plus are quite literally an extension of joy in your arm. We've never designed a device as sleek and sophisticated. By incorporating modern design with our natural and fluid iOS, you are in for a life changing experience from your iPhone.

    The back of the device is now hard grade tempered glass, which is crack resistant and more importantly, flawlessly integrated with wireless charging.

    Blah blah. Ok I'm done.

    Ok I'll take a crack at it too LOL

    "The iPhone 8 and IPhone X are the most advanced pieces of technology since NASA put men on the moon.

    The design of these marvels equals the pyramids of Egypt and the Parthenon in Greece in beauty.

    No other company but Apple has used glass in a more beautiful way..."

    Blah blah blah LOL

    He probably got the ghost writer to write his stuff.

    He probably didn't want us to see what he really looks like..so he had to do his voice thing now.

    He is great for marketing though and his voice is often transmitted behind the scenes for new product videos.

    This is the correct pronunciation of the element Aluminium. It’s the Americans who say it wrong
    (I’m a chemist by the way)

    Why do Americans call it Aluminum? There’s an “i” after the second n.
    I can only assume it’s someone’s spelling mistake that somehow stuck over the generations
