Apple's ad for Group FaceTime will leave you all shook up

With Group FaceTime available with iOS 12.1, Apple iPhone and iPad users can participate in a 32-way video chat. The tile showing the person speaking will get larger automatically, as will the tiles of those participating the most in the conversation. Group FaceTime is available on the iPhone 6s or later, iPad Pro or later, iPad Air 2, or the iPad Mini 4. Earlier models can be involved in a Group FaceTime chat through an audio connection only.

Apple today released a new ad for Group FaceTime. And what better way to show how this new feature works than by having a number of Elvis impersonators sing "There’s Always Me," which the real Elvis recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra back in 1961.

It is interesting to see Elvis impersonators of all shapes, sizes and colors in one commercial. And when they can all appear in a video chat at the same time on your iPhone or iPad screen, that is certainly something to sing about.

You'll probably get to see this 60 second ad play during your favorite prime time television shows. But you if you can't wait to see it, you can tap on the video at the top of this article to view it now.

Ahh free Apple ads. People wonder how the tech media is biased and don't notice this crap. They literally advertise Apple's ads as if it's news.

Maybe you missed the “ad” articles for Samsung and Pixel, in the past few days? and The bias is in your head, getting triggered by your blind hate for all things Apple.
