Apple Tries to Make You Cry With Its New Mother’s Day Ad by Don Reisinger @FortuneMagazine May 2, 2016, 10:08 AM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Linkedin Share icons Apple’s latest ad is aimed at showcasing what its iPhone camera can do—and how mothers are using it. In its latest ad, “Shot on iPhone—Mother’s Day,” Apple’s AAPL 30-second reel shows videos and photos taken on the company’s iPhones by people around the world. The video shows a mother crying at the sight of her baby’s birth, smiling mothers with their kids, and other touching portraits. The ad ends with Apple’s standard, simple tagline: “Moms. Shot on iPhone.” “Celebrating motherhood through the lens of iPhone users around the world,” Apple wrote in its description of the ad on YouTube. Apple’s advertising have been somewhat iconic over the last few decades.

However, some have argued that Apple’s cameras could be a bit better. Indeed, some of its top competitors, including Samsung and LG, have recently launched devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, which come with what reviewers argue are superior cameras. Recent rumors have suggested that Apple will attempt to catch up to its competitors later this year when it announces the iPhone 7. Those reports say Apple will deliver a far better camera than the one already built into the iPhone 6s, aiming to improve its credibility in the mobile-photography market. Such a move might make sense as smartphones have quickly become one of the most popular ways for people to take photos and videos.
