The iPhone 5 promo hits YouTube

Apple’s promotional video detailing the biggest iPhone 5 features went live shortly following yesterday’s series of announcements, but you need QuickTime, Apple’s media software, to watch it in your browser.

Many hate QuickTime, especially Windows PC users. The QuickTime for Windows installer is nearly a hundred megabyte download and the software has become infamous for its resource hoginess (is that even a word?).

Luckily, two hours ago the company uploaded the clip to its YouTube channel and we’ve embedded it here for your viewing pleasure…

Don’t forget that you can also stream the iPhone 5 keynote video directly from (yes, QuickTime is required) or download the entire presentation in high-definition as an iTunes video podcast.

Apple released another video on YouTube which details its in-ear headphones called EarPods. The clip explains some of the new solutions Apple’s acousticians came up with to achieve the richer bass and crisper highs.

Surprisingly enough, the awesome ad for the colorful new iPods is nowhere to be found on Apple’s YouTube channel (but don’t worry, we have you covered!).

What do you think of the iPhone 5 promo clip?

Are you sold yet?

By the way, don’t you love Jony Ive’s British pronunciation of the word ‘aluminum’ (in his version: ‘aluminium’)?
