Apple Issues Apology Over iPad Pro Advert Controversy

Apple recently found itself at the center of controversy following the release of their latest iPad Pro advertisement, which did not sit well with many viewers. The ad, unveiled by Apple CEO Tim Cook on social media, featured an array of creative tools—musical instruments, paint cans, a bust, and an '80s arcade video game—being crushed under a hydraulic press, only to reveal the new iPad Pro as the press retracted.

The intent was to highlight the thinness and advanced features of the iPad Pro, equipped with the powerful M4 chip. Cook emphasized the potential of the iPad Pro to inspire creativity, noting it as "the thinnest product we've ever created, the most advanced display we've ever produced... Just imagine all the things it'll be used to create."

However, the execution of the message faced sharp criticism from online communities and individuals who interpreted the crushing of artistic symbols as a poor metaphor for technology's impact on creativity. Critics argued that it sent a negative message about the technological overpowering of human artistic endeavor. This sentiment was echoed by actor Hugh Grant, who commented that the advertisement seemed to symbolize "the destruction of the human experience."

Responding to the backlash, Apple's vice president of marketing communications, Tor Myhren, issued an apology. In a statement to AdAge, Myhren expressed regret, saying, "Creativity is in our DNA at Apple, and it’s incredibly important to us to design products that empower creatives all over the world. Our goal is to always celebrate the myriad of ways users express themselves and bring their ideas to life through iPad. We missed the mark with this video, and we’re sorry."

Apple has confirmed the apology but has declined to comment further. They have also decided not to run the controversial ad on television. Despite the apology, the ad remains on Cook’s X account, an unusual move for Apple, which rarely issues public apologies.

This incident serves as a reminder of the delicate balance companies must maintain when promoting technology as a tool for enhancing human creativity, especially in an era where the fear of AI replacing human roles is prevalent. As we continue to integrate advanced technologies like the iPad Pro into our creative pursuits, it is crucial to remember the value and irreplaceability of human creativity.

For those interested in exploring the intersection of technology and creativity further, the iPad Pro continues to be a significant tool, and its capabilities can be explored in more depth at, where technology meets the needs of today's creators.
