Apple launches "Why iPhone" page to remind customers why iPhone is best

"There's iPhone. Then there's everything else," says Apple in new campaign following Galaxy S4 unveiling

Apple has launched a new advertising campaign for its iPhone, highlighting the reasons people love the smartphone through a "Why iPhone" web page and a promotional email.

As of Saturday, visitors to Apple's US home page have been greeted by an iPhone 5 promotion that reads: "iPhone 5. Loving it is easy. That's why so many people do."

Clicking the image takes you to Apple's iPhone site, and you'll notice the introduction of a new "Why iPhone" tab. The "Why iPhone" page touts a number of reasons iPhone owners say they love their iPhone.

"There's iPhone. Then there's everything else," the website reads. "What makes an iPhone unlike anything else? Maybe it's that it lets you do so many things. Or that it lets you do so many things so easily. Those are two reasons iPhone owners say they love their iPhone. But there are many others as well."

Apple boasts that the iPhone has received eight consecutive J.D.Power and Associates awards for customer satisfaction, and also notes that "every detail" of the iPhone has "been considered."

Among the features of the iPhone highlighted by Apple on the "Why iPhone" page are the device's Retina display, the battery life, the powerful A6 chip, LTE 4G capabilities and dual-band 802.11n WiFi, and the iSight camera, which has become the world's most popular camera according to Flickr.

Apple also points to the iTunes Store, iOS 6 and its features such as Siri and FaceTime, iCloud, and the support that is available from Apple Retail Stores or Apple's helpline.

Alongside the launch of the new webpage, Apple also sent out an email to US customers with the subject line: "How will you love it? Let us count they ways," which had similar content to the "Why iPhone" page on Apple's website.

The "Why iPhone" page has yet to make an appearance on the UK Apple website.

Apple's new iPhone campaign arrived just days after the launch of Samsung's new Galaxy S4, suggesting that the company is on the defensive, and is determined to keep customers on its side.

As noted by MacRumors, the "Why iPhone" page represents a shift in Apple's advertising direction, which has traditionally focused on the features and experience of using the product rather than the people who use it. Samsung, on the other hand, has been scoring points of its "people-based" adverts.

The campaign follows Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller's dig at Android on Twitter earlier this month, which pointed to the significant security issues surrounding Google's operating system. Schiller also criticised Android and Samsung in two separate interviews on the eve of the Galaxy S4 launch.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
