As part of its most recent launch advertisement for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, Apple has released a few tweaks to its social media films. The commercial uses the song "Biggest" by Idris Elba as its original soundtrack, although viewers were aware that it was only a sample. Shortly after, the Cupertino tech company completely cut out the actor's voice in response to some listeners' complaints that the lyrics sounded like an insulting racial slur. On Monday, Nov. 28, 9to5Mac reported that Apple has made some changes to the vocals in the YouTube debut ad for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

You'll see that the beats that were added to the advertisement are rather inappropriate for a snippet when you watch the video. [caption id="attachment_67233" align="aligncenter" width="1600"]Idris Elba Image: Britannica[/caption] To avoid confusing listeners with the phrases and their usage in the clip, Apple made some alterations to the speech advertisement. The iPhone manufacturer nevertheless included Elba's song in the video description even after eliminating his lyrics from the advertisement's soundtrack. Even though all you hear in the video is the backdrop track, Apple provided a link where you may listen to his music. Some claim that the lyrics to "Biggest, biggest, biggest, biggest, it's the biggest bounce of the summer,", especially to black people, are offensive. According to numerous accounts, the n-word is to blame. But if you listen closely to the lyrics, you'll see that it refers to the "largest" release of the iPhone 14 Plus, which has a larger screen than the standard iPhone 14. The latter's screen measures 6.7 inches, compared to the former's 6.1 inches.
