Highlights

  • Apple announced the new iPhone 13 series at the California Streaming event.
  • The promotional video for iPhone 13 starts with the tune of the iconic Bollywood song ‘Dum Maaro Dum’.
  • However, the song used in the video is not Dum Maaro Dum; it’s Work All Day from Footsie.



On Tuesday, Apple announced the much-awaited iPhone 13 at the California Streaming event. While the launch event itself was got everyone talking, the iPhone 13 promo video also caught the attention of Bollywood fans across the world. The Cupertino giant showed off a promotional video starring the iPhone 13, which came with a surprise. The video started off with the guitar notes of the iconic song, Dum Maro Dum, and the internet went crazy. So did Apple actually use Dum Maro Dum in its iPhone 13 ad, or is it some other song? Well, watch the video for yourself.

The ‘Dum Maro Dum’ tune is just too hard to miss. But the tune used in the video wasn’t from the original song. The song was Work All Day from Footsie, and chances are the artist used the tune from ‘Dum Maro Dum’. We don’t know if Apple had any idea about the song’s Indian root, but fans in India are loving it.
