Apple’s reputation for having the best advertisements out of all technology companies on the planet is well deserved. Not only are their ads phenomenal in quality, but they’ve made a certified crap load of them. The iPhone alone has enjoyed 84 separate TV advertisements over its five year exsistence, and now you can watch them all in one place. Adweek has compiled the entire iPhone advertising campaign into a single page so Apple fans can go through each ad chronologically, starting with the famous “Hello” ad that premiered at the Oscars in 2007, to the most recent one where a kid commands Siri to proclaim him a Rock God.
With so many ads, it’s hard to declare a favorite, but here’s a couple that we’re pretty fond of:
The iPhone changed the way people have arguments. Now when you know your friends is full of shit, you can actually call them out on it and have sources to back you up.
Apple has a history of using nostalgia as a source to touch customer’s emotions, but I think the Santa Siri ad was probably one of the most effective ads to do so. Not only does the ad feature the cool powers of Siri, but it transported viewers back to that time when you believed in Santa.
Alright, the acting in this ad was fairly bad, but the idea that lives are now visually connected despite any amount of distance is a pretty powerful idea. I know my mom and countless grandparents across the world love that they can pick up their iPhone or iPad and FaceTime with grandkids across the country. Nothing like that was possible 10 years ago.
