Apple today uploaded a pair of new ads to YouTube.

The second ad is entitled “Loved” and seemingly showcases how happy iPhone users are. Apple touts in the video that 99 percent of people who own an iPhone love it.
Both of today’s new advertisements end with the slogan, “If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone.” The videos can be seen below. Apple’s other recent major iPhone ad campaign, Shot on iPhone 6, heavily showcased the camera found on the device and didn’t show the actual phone in the advertisements, but rather only footage shot with the phone.
