When tech giants create ads and films, you can expect it to be heartwarming. For instance, Apple released a Chinese New Year special, guaranteed to make you tearful and warm.
Entitled “The Daughter,” the short film tackled hope, love, and reconciliation featuring three generations of Chinese women.
It has the elements you need for a good cry — a realistic depiction of disagreement between a mother and daughter, a single parent’s determination to provide a good life, and a child’s curiosity, optimism, and innocence.
Apple Singapore brought together three talented individuals to create this emotional film. Oscar-nominated folks — director Theodore Melfi and cinematographer Lawrence Sher — worked with China’s top actress Zhou Xun in producing the film through an iPhone 11 Pro.
Once again, Apple proves iPhone’s prowess in the video department. There’s a reason why we held iPhone 11 Pro as the best smartphone for photography and videography — there’s nothing like it! Watch the video here.

Shopee is on a roll. After securing performances from K-Pop supergroup TWICE, the online shopping company has also secured performances from K-Pop 4th Gen superstars ITZY. The group is set to perform on their 10.10 Brand Festival Shopee live.
Shopee has yet to reveal what else they have in store for 10.10. But what we can expect for sure is another generous round of vouchers and giveaways.
ITZY is a five-member girl group featuring Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna. The group debuted with the song “Dalla Dalla”. In 2020, they launched the shoulder dance craze with their comeback “Wannabe”. On September 24, the group will release their first full album called Crazy In-Love with the title track “Loco”.

In the Philippines, Shopee is already kickstarting its Christmas campaign. They are welcoming the holidays essentially the voice and face of Christmas in the country — Jose Mari Chan. Shoppers can catch the singer-songwriter on holiday-themed in-app games such as Shopee Catch and Shopee Collectibles from September to December.
The singer-songwriter will also give out treats via ShopeePay come December. He’s doing it along with other celebrities and influencers. Look for ShopeePay Celebrity Pamasko on your homepage and play the game to receive ShopeePay credits.
