Apple has entered The Drum's Shazam chart this week with 'Who Needs You?' by Chicago-based band The Orwells.

The song features in the new one-minute long 'Change is in the Air' spot for the iPad Air 2, which showcases how iOS apps can be put to use in everyday life – from 3D printing to cityscape photography.

Boots' 'Let's Feel Like New' campaign takes eighth place this week thanks to Deacon Blue's uplifting 1989 number 'Real Gone Kid'.

Sneaking into tenth place is Moneysupermarket with 'Don't Cha' by the The Pussycat Dolls, the soundtrack to the price comparison website's 'Dave's Epic Strut' ad featuring Sharon Osbourne.

And Bupa remains at number one with 'Holding On' by Johnny Stimson.

The track, which has yet to be officially released, is currently sitting at number 13 in Shazam's overall UK chart.

The charts are based on the number of times each ad has been Shazamed over the past week using music identification app Shazam.
