NBA MVP Stephen Curry, Jamie Foxx star in new Apple iPhone 6s ads

NBA MVP Stephen Curry, Jamie Foxx star in new Apple iPhone 6s ads
The other day, we showed you a new ad for the Apple iPhone 6s that starred comedian Bill Hader. The ad focused on the ability of Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus users to call for Siri's help hands-free by saying "Hey Siri." Previously, that feature was available to those using iOS 8, but only if their iPhone was plugged in.

Today, we have two new ads for the iPhone 6s to show you. The first one is also about activating Siri hands-free, and stars Jamie Foxx. The actor is apparently deciding between two roles to pick from. With his iPhone propped up on the dresser, he activates Siri by saying "Hey Siri," and asks her to flip a coin. The result? "Sci-Fi Western it is," says Foxx.

The second ad displays the Live Photos feature that shows 1.5 seconds of video before and 1.5 seconds of video taken automatically after you've snapped a photo. By pressing hard on the screen using 3D Touch, the photograph seems to come alive. Demonstrating this is the NBA's best pure shooter, MVP Stephen Curry. The Warrior's guard is photographed in the process of following through after taking a shot from half court. Using 3D Touch, we see video of the 1.5 seconds before, and the 1.5 seconds after the photo was taken, revealing that he made the shot.

Check out both ads by clicking on the video slideshow below.

Just saw the Jamie Fox one while watching the World Series before reading this article, it was very underwhelming. I couldn't believe that was actually an ad.

Jamie Fox is trying to be a movie hero when he's really just a comedian...

Are you kidding me? Did you not see "Ray" or "Django"? Or was there a joke here that has eluded me?

Dude, Jamie Foxx is more than a comedian. The dude is incredibly gifted. His movie roles far outweigh his comedy.

"Ray" is a prime example.

He's been to 6, and is 2-4. Get your facts straight.

Lebron is the most over rated sports athlete in the history of sports, and I'm including A-rod.

LeBron is an all time great, that would be even greater if he wasn't so unselfish.

Hes good and sometimes great but the greatest ever. If he had Jordan's smaller body he wouldn't be as good.

Dude, that's like saying, if Jordan was 5'6", he wouldn't be as good.

I agree. He is way overrated. When I first saw him and they was like he is going to be better than Jordan and Kobe...I was like, liek hell he is. lol
