The iPad is an extraordinarily versatile productivity tool, and Apple is keen to showcase that fact in a series of stylish new ads. The 15-second spots demonstrate the way that Apple’s tablet — alongside the Apple Pencil — can be used to make it easier to deal with your paperwork or computing on the move.

Check them out below.

The iPad makes life simpler

The first ad, “iPad + Paperwork” shows the way that the iPad and an Apple Pencil can clear otherwise cluttered desks, while making it easier than ever to annotate digital documents. This concept is reiterated in “iPad + Notes,” which transposes the setting to a school to highlight Apple’s focus on education.

“iPad + Travel,” meanwhile, highlights how easy it is to continue working while you’re on a flight, while “iPad + Stuff” extends this to demonstrate how everything from city guides to sketchbooks can fit into one device.

Linking all four ads is the stylish top-down view, serving to highlight just how thin and minimalist Apple’s iPad is, compared with the clutter of surrounding daily life.

Apple’s new iPad ads follow hot on the heels of another new ad for the iPhone X, which Apple debuted over the weekend.
