The Apple 'Data Auction' commercial is part of the tech brand's continued push towards highlighting the safety, security and privacy of its devices. The advertisement sees a woman unknowingly uncover an auction where the items up for bid are the various data and preferences stored on her smartphone. Bidders eagerly snatch up the offerings only to be thwarted by the woman when she puts it to a halt by selecting more stringent privacy settings on her iPhone.
The Apple 'Data Auction' commercial takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to helping consumers understand the complex nature of data aggregation and sale. The commercial is set to start broadcasting in 24 countries during the summer of 2022, which could result in an increased number of consumers opting for an iPhone in the fall.
