Apple traditionally shares a touching holiday ad in November or December, and this year’s spot, Sway, was uploaded to the company’s YouTube channel this afternoon.
The ad shows off both the iPhone X and the AirPods, featuring a woman dancing through a snowy city to the song “Palace” by Sam Smith. She runs into a partner, imagines sharing an AirPod with him, and the two of them go on to briefly fall in love before returning to reality where they pass by each other in the street.
Past Apple holiday ads have been well-received and have even won awards, including the company’s 2013 ad “Misunderstood,” featuring an iPhone 5s being used to capture holiday activities like baking cookies and decorating a Christmas tree.
Last year’s ad featured Frankenstein’s monster participating in some holiday cheer.
