The company says the sheer geographical scale of this undertaking means it could very well be the largest mobile photography gallery in history, which hopes to inspire iPhone users to take even more photos with their devices.
Last year’s ‘Shot on iPhone 6’ campaign was announced shortly after Samsung officially released the date of their Galaxy S6 media event.
This year’s ‘Shot on iPhone 6s’ campaign? Apple’s announcement comes on the heels of Samsung announcing their new Galaxy S7 will be unveiled on February 21, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
