In the new advertisement for the iPhone 14, a sample appears that sounds like the derogatory word for blacks in the United States that is considered politically incorrect. Apple replaced the lyrics with a melody-only version



Apple ran into a minor scandal following its new iPhone 14 advertisement.

The ad, released in September, includes the song Biggest, and a repeated sample of the word that probably sounded to some viewers like the politically incorrect word for blacks in the United States.

Apple removed the lyrics and now there is only the instrumental version of the song, without lyrics.

The strange part is that Apple did this two months after the ads went live.



The song that accompanies the advertisement is, as mentioned, Biggest by none other than the actor Idris Elba, who turns out to be a DJ and producer as well.

Apple replaced the version on its main YouTube channel, but on some local channels the original version is still available.

The apparent uproar arose when several YouTubers were upset when they heard what sounded to them like the negative nickname for dark-skinned people.

Apple did not respond to Gizmodo's request for a response and the question of why the background music in the advertisement was suddenly changed two months after it was uploaded.
