Apple uses famous Las Vegas slogan to promote iPhone security on billboard near CES

Apple uses famous Las Vegas slogan to promote iPhone security on billboard near CES
Surely you've heard the iconic slogan used by the the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to attract visitors. "What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas" has been one of the most popular slogans ever created by a tourist agency. In fact, it is so well known that Apple borrowed it for a billboard that it put up in Las Vegas just days before the start of the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The billboard shows the outline of the back of an iPhone X, iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max and says "What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone." Underneath the image is the web address to Apple's privacy page (apple.com/privacy). The billboard was photographed and tweeted by Chris Velazco (@chrisvelazco), and as one Twitter member noted, it certainly appears creepy with the giant image of a dual camera system looking right at you.

Traditionally, Apple does not buy a booth or make presentations at CES. But the billboard is a good buy for Apple since it will certainly attract the attention of those walking to and from the Las Vegas Convention Center, where the trade show is held.

If you decide to visit the website posted on the billboard, you'll read how Apple keeps your personal data private inside your Apple device.

Anyone that believes in that slogan. (ad) that Apple placed, needs their head examined. Especially when Apple sold it's existing customers data for the tune of 9 billion to Google. Not to mention Apple is using the same data.

It's not just some random billboard. It's a particular billboard, on a particular location, and just before a particular event.

Where the heck do you think your profile truly sits? It's on Apples servers.

So you mean to say it's Apple's fault if the celebrities put weak passwords? How about I hack your PA account, does it mean I hacked PA? No, it means I hacked your user account.

Apple will want their users using their new Apple Maps app once it is more developed. They're spending a ton of money on it...are they going to provide it free of charge? If so...I'd be curious as to why.

Apple mocking Androids now . People use to say Apple never replys to Android brands. Now they are . Maybe they just learned that marketing is everything.

"What happens on you iPhone stays on your iPhone" Err! no it doesn't, the data is sent to Apple servers. The big question is what is Apple doing with this data and why do they want it.

Can L.V. copy strikes apple for using their slogan ? lol i'm joking, but what draws my attention, if you removed apple logo and replaced "iPhone" word with any Chinese phone name ... It will work just fine

Why there isn’t a talk about android privacy? Oh well, it didn’t exist! This is one main reason why i chose apple and trust more than any other tech.
