Apple has announced the new iPhone which means a couple of things. In the coming weeks every news bulletin will do a story on people lining up overnight to get one. And that a plethora of new iPhone reviews are about to populate the internet.
Music is often the last thing video makers think of after writing and filming their reviews. Yet it can be the difference between your review seeming amateur or professional.
So, we thought we’d help all you young video reviewers out by rounding up some of the best tracks to use.
Here are the 60 Best Stock Music Tracks for an iPhone Review.
Neutrino by musicdream
This track starts with a pitter patter and builds very gradually. It ends with its concept fully realized as the rest of the layers enter.
It’s soft, ambient and the light synth that runs from beginning to end gives it that “tech” sound.
Ocean Drive by FlossieWood
Ocean Drive sustains a small sound throughout. With subtle, purposeful moments of elaboration on the main idea. It’s light, elegant and interesting.
Abstraction by GhostBox
This track by GhostBox is modern with glitch elements that fit neatly into the tech review style. It’s a very clean sounding track with an underlying warmth that keeps it from being alienating.
Design by butterflystudio
Design is a truly sensational track that could stand up on its own. Having said that it’s a great fit for a review video. Its unique blend of sounds make it seem futuristic which works well in the tech genre. And its sound is low profile enough to not distract from the main focus – the narration.
Ambient by SolarStudio
This one by SolarStudio would work well with a cinematic style of review video. If you’re planning to open your piece with a slow pan revealing the new iPhone model this would be a great choice. It’s fresh, calm and unobtrusive. Good for complimenting a cleanly shot and tightly edited video.

It introduced each track like a little building block but never lets the sound get too big. It’s elegant which is a perfect match for a review about the new iPhone.

If you’re a fan of Flume but don’t want to pay the money required to use one of his tracks, consider The Dubstep by AudioRocket. It features the fresh synth wave style Flume is famous for. And it’s mixed with the subtly warped vocal elements and crisp drums that define this style.
Timelapse Trip-Hop Beat by khursey
This is a popular track that’s been used by popular YouTuber Roman Atwood, which we highlighted in 2016. Its blend of piano and electronic elements make it modern while still being grounded in the present. And the warped underwater sounding effect at its opening grabs the attention.

If your brand is loud and in your face, then GoPro Action Sport might be for you. It’s intense but can still fit well in the background driving the energy of your video to its full potential.
Drops by MusicDog
Drops is calm, ambient and ideal for supporting narration. It’s definitely serious in its tone. So it’s best suited comprehensive analysis rather than the loud, energetic reviews.
Technology Background by AudioBeard
This is a cool, weird spin on the typical style of background music for tech videos. It sounds like it’s taken inspiration from artists like Aphex Twin. I love the addition of the piano to instrumentation that’s otherwise all electronic. It’s a nice touch.
Inspiring Technology Abstract Creative by Aquavitae
The unusual mix of sounds makes this track by Aquavitae a unique choice. It’s clean, and the chord progression evolves it into something interesting.

This minimalistic track by Alexiaction is almost like having just a beat behind you. Which makes it adaptable to whatever imagery you’re showing.

This is a powerful and emotional track. It features an ideal blend of cinematic and electronic. While it’s modern and a bit futuristic, it’s still emotionally engaging and not alienating. I think it sounds like a more electronic version of the Westworld theme. Consider this if your brand isn’t afraid of emotional depth.
Technology by BlackTrendMusic
BlackTrendMusic continue to churn out fantastic tracks that I refer to as “crispy”. And this one does not disappoint.

This track’s a bit of a departure from the others on this list. If you were to do a review of the new iPhone from a fashion perspective, this track would be perfect. The ambience gives it a sleekness that suits the general interpretation of high-fashion. It also creates an atmosphere that feels like a runway is in close proximity.
Glitch Inspiration by NIDRED
This courageous track is bold and extremely fresh. The atmosphere it creates is a little intense, but in a good way. The claps that ride above the beat work as a crisp, clean accent. And the synth arpeggios that feature throughout can’t help but keep the listener engaged. This would be a very interesting choice to pair with a voiceover. Although it won’t work for everyone.
Inspiring Trailer by SlowwickSounds
If you were to review the new iPhone for a business audience, like Bloomberg’s, this would be one to consider. It’s cinematic orchestration will add a sense of adventure to your video.

Motivational Ambient by Control_Room
This is excellent track by Control_Room features both modern and some retro elements. This would be a perfect fit for a publication like The Outline whose mix of irony, nostalgia and serious analysis this track embodies.

Ok. If you aspire to be the next Casey Neistat and you want to mimic his style, this track is the key. That Hip-Hop by COSMONKEY matches the hip-hop/electronic wave of music that’s enveloped YouTube. It’s clean, it’s fun and it’ll work well under narration.
