Wow! Check out Apple’s new ‘Shot on iPhone’ commercials

Apple has released a new batch of “Shot on iPhone” TV commercials.

Apple’s creative team looks for photos and videos on social media and Flickr. They then request the owners’ permission to use it and verify that it was in fact taken with an iPhone camera.

Each video below is the original as shot with an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus — without filters, adjustments, or retouching. Imagine what you can do with a camera this advanced, along with the powerful editing tools built into your iPhone.

  1. Most were excellent, but I couldn’t see the point of the clouds one. It was just another one of those boring cloud videos that people shoot the first time that fly in an aeroplane.

    The bees were good, so was the dog, but I felt that the hippo was best of all because it really is the sort of great shot that you tend to get on an iPhone as it’s the camera that you have immediately to hand. On most of the other sequences, you’ve got a pretty good idea what to expect as soon as you see the first couple of seconds, but the hippo pops up as a big surprise.

  2. So then why is it that while attending my son’s graduation I was sitting pretty far away, and my iPhone was unable to zoom in to capture my son receiving his diploma BUT the guy next to me using his Note was able to zoom in and capture CLEARLY his child receiving their diploma?

    I was astonished at the clarity….

  3. iPhone video is surprising good!!!

    Fast Food joints….when do you expect them to automated and “staffed” by robots? 5 – 10 years, probably sooner. it is cheaper than $15/hr
