Didn't get the iOS device of your dreams today? Enter now for a chance to win it from iMore!



Just say no to him like any other child.....anyway, what if the idevice of your dreams, has yet to release yet, like an iphone 5S or ipad 4....can we get that?

Thanks for the opportunity, iMore! Would love an iPad mini! I could use with clients as I travel around the city all day--very easy to carry!

And thanks for all the great posts and reviews this year! Keep up the good work!

I would like to get my grandma the iPad mini. She is currently in a rest home several hundred miles away and she would love "FaceTime" chat :-) merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you at iMore.


Well I have an iPhone 5 but I always thought the iPad was too close in size to my laptop so an iPad Mini would be the perfect device for me!

I'd use it to get a 32GB iPad 3 in white. :-) Hope I win! I think a BB10 phone + an iPad would be a KILLER combo!

I would love to get a 32gb iPad in white! That would be awesome. I never had an iPad, but i always wanted one.

Look, Santa obviously made a mistake this year because there was no iPad Mini under the tree. I wonder when Santa does make up days? Well, while I'm finding that out - I would very much like an opportunity from iMore - so count me in...(I refuse to believe I was on the naughty list this year!)

My dad would really like an iPad mini for his xmas present and bday since both are a week apart. The mini is the perfect size, not too big, not too small.

I want the iPad Mini so my 5yo daughter could learn the art of sharing with me.....its about time she did...n stuff :D

Would love to get the iPad 4, wifi only. I've been trying to get one for 8 months since my accident. Dr's and medical bills have been a priority over that time. :(

I want to have the iphone 5 because I want to enjoy its advanced technology, because I heard the iphone 5 is the most advanced smartphone this year, and because in my eyes, the iPhone 5 is very fancy smartphone. if I had lot of money I would buy it, but unfortunately I do not have it

I want the iPad or iPad Mini, I normally don't receive anything for christmas so it would make me really happy to finally get something!

I want an iPhone 5. Need to switch from Sprint to Verizon so I can have 4g. New carrier-new contract, might as well save some $$ and get a iPone 5 for Christmas.

I'd love an iPhone 5 for LTE access (Verizon 3G is pretty slow for streaming video). However, saving for an iPad mini 2 sounds pretty enticing as well.

Really would like to have an iPad to give to my Mom... she loves using mine and would be great if she had her own that she can use all the time

I'd like an iPad mini but I'd really like it if you picked someone on here who actually NEEDED it and not just wanted it. Happy holidays everyone!

i would love to have an iPad 3rd gen, because i can't carry my lap everywhere and want to use the iPad as my daily driver.

I would like an iPad mini, since my 3 year old has confiscated my iPad to play Subway Surfer every minute of the day!

I would love an iPad Mini.. Or IPad.. I don't have a tablet of any kind.. It would make may addiction to iOS to a whole other level:).. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

I would really love the iPad with Retina display to replace my first-gen iPad. Happy holidays everyone!

I want an iPad because... Well because I don't have one =D and it would be really awesome to have!
And I behaved this year (mostly.. I think..) =))

My dream iOS: iPhone 5 16 GB ! i would love to win because i never have iOS Phone, i just have an iPad, iPhone 5 could be perfect smartphone for me to do all things ! Hey iMore and Rene, Merry Christmas ! Greeting love from me in Indonesia :)

I want an iPhone 5. Because everything I want on a mobile phone is already on iPhone 5 .. Its faster cpu and gpu, simple, user FRIENDLY, and I LOVE the Ecosystem, of the the device, its the BEST Smartphone for me :)

Thanks for this opportunity!

It's going to be an 64GB (RED) iPod Touch. It's a double, the anniversary gift and the chance to give back and help. Was out of budget this year, but you're giving me a second chance here.

iPad mini because I am weak of wrist in the most non-gender or sexual orientation way possible.

I would love to buy an iPad 4 (wifi only). All my friends got one this Christmas for college. All I got was a legal pad and a pen...Thanks Santa!

I would love a New iPad or an iPad mini but it has to be a White iPhone 5. Just know I would get the most out of that.

I really WANT & NEED another iPad!!! I've owned the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd gen iPads, and always sold my previous model to upgrade to the newest ones. I recently left my iPad 3 on the trunk of my car, so I'm totally LOST w/o !!

I'd love to have an iPhone 5. I got one for my wife for Christmas but my upgrade isn't eligible yet. So If iMore could help that'd be great.

There was no iPad mini under the tree this year so if I was lucky enough to win that is what I would pick!

My 8 year old son is jealous that his friends got iPad Minis. And, now he trying to convince me to get him one because he said it would be the kid version of my iPad. Needless to say I'll be getting him an iPad mini for his birthday, but would love to win one for him!

I'd like an iPad since I'm trying to fully convert from android. I would love to experience iOS full on. Good luck everyone.

4th gen ipad so that my friends and family can make fun of me for having an apple device (currently a big android user ;) )

I want an Ipod Mini because I am a teacher and I had an Ipad 2 stolen from me a year ago around this time. It was such a great tool for the classroom

I want the iPad mini in black/slate because it will help me a lot in my school work and also I am a fan of checking websites out!

iPad 4. Because I just bought one two weeks ago and it (and only it) was stolen from my checked-in suitcase at JFK.

Since I have no iOS devices, an ipad mini! I love tablets but have small hands and sadly, there isn't an app for that..
Merry Christmas!

I want an ipad mini for my son so I can have my ipad back. He can use the mini since he as young eyes.

Thanks for the opportunity! I have never received an iOS device for Christmas before. I would like an iPad with retina display because I am still using my original 2010 iPad and it isn't holding well.

Very gracious offer from you guys! Really appreciate you looking out for those of us who did not get on the nice list!

The Hankster

I really want an iPhone 5 since I still use my 3GS, despite it turns off when it rains or is cold outside.
I bough an Lumia 800 to replace it about a year ago, but after a short while thouch stopped working, (repaired) then the screen loosened and the buttons got loose (repaired) now it stopped charging - they wont fix it becous it is a "userfault" - but I have totaly gotten to use it for about a month - the rest of the time my 3GS has been my bacup for better and worse. Thats why I want an iPhone 5

I would love a mac mini because I am starting to develop apps&games for ios, and I need Mac OSX to do so!

I'd very much like an iPod touch to use in my classroom. It would work splendidly for my lessons and music transitions.

I would love to win a retina iPad! Would be very handy for business trips! Sometimes just need something in between the iphone and the mac book pro!!

I'd like an iPhone 5. I'm still rocking a 4. I'll be moving to a bigger city next month and would like to take advantage of LTE!

Unfortunately I was unable to get an iPad mini. Too many purchases for others. I would love to have an iPad mini to share with the whole family and take advantage of a larger screen that my iphone. Merry Xmas everyone!

iPad mini because as much as love the bigger display of my iPad 3 - ultimately, it's the size that will make me use it more and because it looks more like a PADD from Start Trek: The Next Generation being the geek that I am.

Merry Christmas all!

iPhone 5, would be my first iPhone (sad to start moving away from webOS but even the ported device they are working on will not be on Verizon).

I'd like an iPad Retina or an iPad mini. I'm currently a Library and Information Science master's student and a future professional goal of mine is to learn how to better incorporate technology into university libraries in order to better help students with their academic success.

Dear Santa, I've been a really really really really good boy this year! I want an iPad Mini for Christmas. Amen. I mean... HO HO HO
PS: I don't have a chimney so just stuff it in the mail. Or go through the toilet system

I would like an iPhone 5 because I don't have a phone for almost 3 months and my parents won't buy it for me while I can't afford it since I don't have money and January 7 is my birthday so it would be a great gift for me! Please let me win. I need it. I can't contact my loved ones through text because I don't have a phone.

I'd love to actually own an iPad or an iPad mini. (I’d probably want an iPhone 5 (unlocked) even more, but at $600+, even a gift card of $325 wouldn't help a ton.) I am a student who really, really enjoys design, both onscreen and hardware, and I especially love Apple’s clean, refined aesthetic. Also, I'm getting into professional music, and GarageBand on iPad is fantastic — I've tried it out. Finally, I'm just an Apple lover. So, to fully experience the true power of iOS, an A6X processor (or an A5 ;-) would really be cool!
One last thing: I gotta say, this is awfully nice of you Mobile Nations staff! You're giving a grand total of $1300 away just ’cause. (One could even say it’s a RESOLUTIONARY thing to do! :-) And I hate to grovel and beg, but, I guess those were the instructions. What you’re doing defines the holiday spirit.
Great idea, and good luck to all participants! Good tidings :-)

I would use it towards a purchase of an iPad mini with LTE. I have a bad back and the iPad with the protective case I have is too heavy to lug around all day. Hope everyone is having a merry Christmas -- even if they didn't get the iDevice of their dreams ;-)

It's simple. I love apple. My wife and I each have an iPhone. I have an ipad3 but my wife and three kids keep me from my ipad. Please please please. Help our family. The mini would bring great joy

I would love an iPad or iPad mini to work on music tracks, and syncing it with another iPad. Also, I'd be able to show people how to use the music programs hands on vs just using one iPad.

I wish for an iPhone 5, or new iPhone.

I want to give it to my beautiful girlfriend, she has an old iPhone 2G, and I wish this upgrade for her.

Merry Christmas!
Ho Ho Ho!

I'd like a new iPad or iPad mini! My wife (who previously didn't see a need) is now hooked on the iPad, and has taken it over.

An iPad would be awesome because I have neither a laptop or tablet. I plan to get one or the other after the new year but this would solve that.... :)


I'd like to have an iPad 4th gen and the reason why i want an ipad is becouse i dont own a tablet whatsoever i barely have an iphone 3gs and i would much rather the ipad than an iphone 5 !
so imore be my santa this xmas :) !

I would love an ipod touch 5th gen i want something to carry out with me whenever i go it has been my dream apple product since it first came out

Need Ipad 3 or ipad 4 to be more efficient for our not for profit Institute. Use personal iphone 5 for office and ipad would extend the efficiency. Thanks

An iPad mini would be awesome for my 3 year old niece because she's always playing with mine when she comes over

Actually using Smartphone it's helps me a lot. Specially contacting my Family to my homeland using Skype. Thank you! Apple for making my love ones near to me even were far apart! I hope this Christmas there will be no more loneliness away from there families, just one click of ur iphone.. My wish, hoping I can give a little gift to my love ones! heheh.. >_<

I returned my ipad intending to use the money to help out a friend in need. Things worked out for my friend, which is great, ...but I'm out of an ipad :(. Sure I could buy another ipad or you can give me a free one :) or better yet, donate it to a charity of my choosing :) :)

Dear Santa, I changed my wish, I've been a really really really really, good boy this year, I want a White iPad Mini for Christmas. Amen. I mean HO HO HO
PS, I don't have a chimney. You can either come out from the toilet or send it by mail

I would love an iPad 4, great upgrade from iPad 2 for retina for watching movies, performance bump and lightning port so I only need to carry one cable when I travel. That would be great, ipad mini would be great as well.

Very generous of you guys. I would love a mini. Was saving toward one but had to put it into emergency fund for my wife to buy her a Mac mini when her computer died. Great computer but the iPad mini would be awesome.

I want an iPad mini because I have wanted an iPad since they came out and still haven't found a way to afford one. Please?

I would like an iPad mini because it's the perfect weight and size for lying on the bed and surfing the net!

An iPad mini would be a awesome gift from you and your team. In working for a non-profit, I can see many ways that it could be used for more than just me. Thanks for the consideration! :-)

Merry Christmas to everyone at Mobile Nations and the communities here!! Would love an iPad mini to use at work. I work in the agriculture industry and the reg. iPad is just a bit to cumbersome to carry out in the fields with you...Mini would be perfect!! :)) Merry Christmas all!

I do want an iPhone 5 because I got so many reasons.

1) First of all, an iPhone is actually and truly a masterpiece. Though I never owned any but seeing it for about 5 years on the web I could praise its rectangular curves, glossy icons, great camera, elegant reflections.

2) I never ever in my life held a smartphone. But I do own this skimpy Nokia Asha 305 (http://i.imgur.com/mRdFL.jpg) (shot using a burrowed Panasonic camera) and it's in fact, a S40, so you know my pain. Previously held a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (This one's also S40).

3) In India, all the devices are way overpriced and here we don't have contracts that you guys have. So it's very very hard to buy here. And a factory unlocked iPhone5 (recently checked) costs about Rs 62,000, will be about USD 1127. See it's way overpriced!

4) Been a iPhone enthusiast since it was introduced back then in 2007. I don't say a I'm a fanboy, but ever since it came by I stuck glued to every unveiling event. I could see statistics about millions being sold and reviews put up and it really made me upset.

5) Trying to learn photography but never had any money to hold a dSLR. Did on some point and shoot cameras and the Nokia Asha 305 (see some here --> http://www.flickr.com/photos/einsoren ). If I had an iPhone it would fulfill my dream of getting a SUPER-SMARTPHONE with an equally powerful camera. So it could actually help me get closer to achieve an art form.

Till now I don't have other reasons to own an iPhone.

Bhavesh Soren, the-wannabe-iPhone-owner!

I want the iphone5 so my wife can have a upgrade. She currently has 4s but think she would like 5 much better.

Iwant an iphone 5/4s because Apple is everithing for me!!!!
Thank's and make it happen for me :)

I would like a iPad Mini for my wife. It breaks my heart to see her watching her movies with her iphone 4. It's so small. iPad Mini would be a perfect size for her. Thank You.

I want the iPad Mini! Was originally planning to buy one for myself, but bought it for my girlfriend instead so I have nothing to play with.

I would love an ipad mini to use for work and school. Because I am always on the move at work, small and light is very important to me.

Hi Everyone

I would really like an iPad Mini, I want a small tablet to use for reading..it will be put to awesome use.

I would love to win a new iOS device so my 4yr son would stop using mine when I get home from work. I have been issued his itouch as soon as I get in the door! Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

I want an iPhone 5 for my brother that just came home from the army. I want to show him that I really miss him! He loved my iPhone 4S, so I really want him to enjoy having his own iPhone 5. :/ please open your hearts this Christmas. Thanks for reading :)

I would like a super-fantastic, next-generation iOS device as soon as it is available; my faith in Apple remains undiminished! ...or in the meantime a 32 gb iPad mini would be sweet!

I need iPhone because It's very expensive and I love Apple products and I really want to have Apple product but all Apple products are expensive :(
So please...I want iPhone 4S or 5 :)
Merry christmas !
