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



Merry Christmas iMore,

Thank you for all your hard work!! I would like the new iPad so I could use it to evaluate my students and for my graduate school work.

Happy New Year,

I really want to win this so i can get my girlfriend an iPad Mini because I didn't get to get her one because of an emergency that came up and took my Christmas money. :'(

I would use the gift card to get an iPad mini and give it to my cousin. He has a developmental disability and the iPad would be very useful in helping keep him focused and help him work towards his education.

Hey there iMore. I'm a brand new member who registered just for this opportunity. I've followed you via Flipboard for iPhobe 5 for quite some time. I'd like an iPad Mini 32GB w/ LTE BY Verizon. I have a MacBook Air I am selling bc I want the mini so much. It's the perfect size, weight and look that the original iPad should've been. The 9.7 is great but a little too impractical. The 7.9" is absolutely the perfect size. I really hope I win, but if not, we can still be friends! ;)

Any iOS device would be a dream come true for me, because i never HAD one. but if I ever win this i would rather give it to my mom and dad as a gift. My dad has worked abroad for my studies, and the least i could do to make him proud is study the hardest.

Let me win this so i could give my parents an iphone, the most amazing phone so that they could communicate easier and faster :) thankyou!

ill be wishing, praying and hoping for this.

I really need to win this for my wife. She deserves it and wants one more than anything else. Please choose us and thank you for this opportunity. Imore you guys rule.

Would love an iPad with Retina Display with cellular connection to use on my weekly 6-hour Amtrak commute between NYC and home. It would make a great replacement for my laptop and make my backpack much lighter! Happy holidays, all.

I'd love an iPad mini! I'd give my iPad 3 to my mom :) Got my aunt an iPad 3 for Christmas today and she can't put it down. I'd love to get my mom one!

I would live an iPad for schooling. The few 1990s windows desktops we have at the school are, well, 1990s windows desktops.

Lego Ninjago took over our holidays this year and left nothin' for the rest of us. Would love to win an iPad Mini to use at work and for educational apps for my kids to help with their schoolwork.

My new job bought me an iphone 4s because all of their managers are issued one. Unfortunately, that left my wife with her old flip phone from 2004. We tried to get her a new iphone but the carrier demanded a $500 deposit that we cant afford. I would love to be able to get my wife a new iphone in white. It would make her Christmas.

iPhone 5

Would give it to my fiancée because of issues she is having with her 4. Also,it would help financially.
Thank you!

I would love to win the latest iPad, as in College it comes very handy for doing projects and using it for carrying my ebooks and .pdf study notes, as its is portable. My friends have it but I can't afford it as it is to expensive for me to buy.

Looking to finally win a sweet new iPad mini, I have twins with autism and have a device like this would help. There are apps that help and small enough to travel with. Best of luck to you all and happy holidays.

I want the MacBook Pro 15 with Retina Display because I would like to start my design business career and I've seen it's the best machine to work with: portable, fast, smart.

I would like the new iPad to be able to use the newer applications. I have an older iPod touch that will not let me download any application that requires ios 4.3 or newer.

I would like the ipad mini, because im a broke college student who would love the chance to carry around all my: books, notes, and lectures in a light device. Please mobile nations.

I would use the gift card for an ipad mini because I'm a Trekkie and it's the closest thing to a functional "padd" that they used to carry around. Just right in size and light as a feather! Make it so...

I want a new IPad mini because I gave mine to my granddaughter for Christmas. Her mother has fallen on some hard times so she didn't get much else from Santa.

Ipad 4! my little sister is in nursing school and that would help her in taking notes without having to take a huge laptop!

I am going to be petty and use the it's my birthday next week on December 31st card lol plus an iPad Mini would help for when I get into Oriental Medicine school...

I would like an iphone 5. I'm still using iphone 4 and there are tons of new features not supported by my device!

I would like an iPad mini because that is what my sister wanted for her Christmas gift but I could not afford it right now.

want an ipad mini so i can carry it around with me, I was sufficiently impressed, more than I was expecting to be. I'd trade my iPod touch for this! the ipad 3 is too big!

iPad Mini! I became hooked after I used my Uncle's that he got as a gift. Why didn't I ask for one? Haha

I would like a new black iPhone 5 because mine came with a scratch on the back right out of the box and apple didn't do anything about it :( mahalo!

I would like to get a MacBook Pro so that I can do the different design and web projects for the business I am starting. My Dell laptop that I've had for 4 years just isn't cutting it ha. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!


I really want an iPad mini so i can video chat with my long distance girlfriend and see her beautiful face on a bigger than iPhone screen!

MacBook Pro retina... My wife took my computer, so it would be nice to have some extra money to put towards a computer!!

I would like an iPad mini for my mom because she isn't as mobile as she used to be and can't get to church but maybe once or twice a year. She could could use the iPad for reading her bible (since she's up in age and the print in her bible is getting hard to read). And my she could view my brothers sermons on there. It would also come in handy to keep her entertained and informed more so than her tv. And it's lightweight and it'll be easy for her to handle. If you guys could bless her with that I'd be so grateful. Thanks for listening.

Would love an iPad with Retina. My grandmother had been mentioning how much she wanted an iPad for awhile now and my mom planned on getting her one, so I decided to forego major Christmas gifts this year so my mom could afford to purchase my grandmother an iPad with Retina. We gave it to her today and she loves it! College student here, so would love it for textbooks and easier notetaking in class as well as all the cool things it does! :-)

I want an iPad mini because I'm a student and need it most for doing lessons or reading books and much more...please make my dream come true

I want an iPhone 5 so I can give my son my iPhone 4S. He has an older generation ipod that can barely play these newer game apps requiring more processing power.

I would love to get an iPhone 5 for my dad because he is the only one in our familymwithnout one and it would be nice to all be one iOS!

In all honesty, I would like to win the prize. Not entirely for selfish reasons. While I'd enjoy a new idevice as much as the next guy, if I win I intend to use half of the money to donate towards our jailbreak magicians, those guys that allow us to customize our iphones, ipads, ietc to suit our every digital need. May it help to get a new A5+ jailbreak to the masses, or merely as a beacon of hope that there are still people in the community that truly value your work.

I would like the iPhone 5 to replace my Android. This way I can sync all my existing data with my iPad 2 and MAC desktop - and the trio will be complete. iPhone 5 rocks in weight and functionality, and I'd love to be able to start memorizing class lectures while on the go.

I'd like an Iphone 5. Color doesn't matter compared to the experience of an Apple product. There's only so much you can learn and understand from reviews compared to hands-on use for a week.

I love helping people, mostly when it comes to choosing a device that's best for them. I've used Android and Windows Phone so those I could always give my pros and cons on. It's always the Iphone where I can't say anything since I really don't know what it's really like.

I would love an ipad or ipad mini! It would make it so much easier to get some reading done as well as get myself up to date on technology!

I have an iphone amd that is why i got my mum an ipad. But after purchasing, setting up and playing with it a bit I now realise I neeeeed an ipad. Editing photos, FaceTime and of course reading your great articles are much more fun on a bigger screen :)

An iPad mini, because it would fit perfectly on the pulpit I use to preach from every Sunday and Thursday at the church I pastor. Thx

I would like an iPad because I'm learning how much of an educational tool it is for my children and I can't give them mine because I use it for work. Thanks.

I would like an iPad mini. I really want to get one so that I could I use them in my university, most of my friends owned an iPad, so I'm hoping I could get one before the start of the new semester. >< thank you iMore.

hi i'm from iran and i love to have an iphone 5 but because of restriction there is a few of them here and very expansive 32 GB iphone 5 is about 1500 dollars :(

If I win, I want an iPad as I don't have any tablet now :) Thank you for the chance. Merry Christmas

Hi guys i would love any apple device because my blackberry playbook was just a waste of money... And we work hard for our money!

I want iPhone,doesn't matter which one I want it to be an iPhone,simply because my Android smartphone is lagging so much, it's driving me nuts every day it's something different if it's not the battery, then it's the screen,if not that than I can't open this app because it's incompatible with my phone and so on and so on....and that's why I need an iPhone

I'm looking to get the 32GB iPad Mini black/slate with cellular to replace my aging original iPad that is still stuck on iOS 5 and keeps crashing half my apps.

I would like the iPad mini. Because it's perfect for in car entertainment for my son when we travel back and forth in the country to visit grandparrents

I want an iPad Mini to replace my 5 years old Nokia smartphone...'Coz I'm being left behind and this would be a comeback....Thanks iMore....

iPad mini all the way; I have a three year old little girl who can not put my iPad down and I think it would be the perfect tool for her. She has used my iPad for a while now and it has been a big help in teaching her to count, learn her alphabet, and she is learning now how to spell and write.

Thank you

I would love to get in this contest for an ipad mini. I'm in need of a tablet so that would help greatly. Thank you.

Would love an I Pad mini as I've currently a tablet shaped void in my life and it would be nice to have that filled by the coolest Tech on the market today.. Would also like to say good luck to all..

Well, I suppose I'd get an iPad 4, cause as much as I love my mini, I wouldn't mind a Retina display and extra processing power for all the gaming I do.

With this I could put it towards an ipad4, or simply an ipad mini. Ether one would be awesome, thanks for the contest.

I'd love a white iPad mini to replace my ageing desktop PC, the iWork suite is more than enough to meet my requirements, and I'd save lots of space

I would like to have an iPad mini, so I can always take my portfolio with me to show it to my possible future clients :)!

I'd love a Macbook Air as I need a lightweight laptop because I do a lot of travelling, need something ultra portable and the MBA is the best of the best. My last laptop died recently and I can't afford a replacement. Thanks iMore!

Id go for a 32 gb ipad 4 with ATT service (which my phones have). I can forsee getting frustrated if out and about and no wifi available.

I want an iPad Mini to gift to my father who has been lying in bed due to his illness. This will help him in keeping abreast to the world around him and will keep him busy too so that he doesn't keep thinking about the illness.

I'd buy a 16GB Black iPhone 5, my iPhone 4 is starting to feel a bit old now - so to win would really help me get myself a nice new phone

I would like the black and slate colored iPhone 5!!! I've wanted it for so long. Its got great features, like the camera with panorama, iOS 6 Maps (flyover), lightning connector, lightweight etc. I can also use it to listen to music, watch movies on the bus, play some games on it etc. Thanks for the giveaway iMore, really appreciate it !! :)

I have an iPhone 4s and an ipad 4 and I would like an ipad mini for work sine it is easily transportable.

My wife would love a new iPad mini to use when on the road. Help rescue her from my old nook tablet with a crappy beta version of android on it.

If I won this, then it would be great to get a new black 64gb iPod touch, as my dad lost his old iPod ages ago and never got round to replacing it.

I really would love an ipad mini for my mom. her bday is on christmas and she was dying for tablet that I couldnt afford. please!

I'd like to get an iPad mini and give my Nexus 7 to my 13-year old autistic son for use as a Netflix machine. Thanks, iMore!

My Toshiba laptop is on it's last leg, so I would use it towards an MacBook Pro. Not really an iOS device, but it is what I really need.

you guys are awesome!!!! id love an iPad mini because, well why not?? it would complete my ios device collection!! :)

I plan to trek the entire length of the Great Wall of China, visiting and experiencing the culture in different villages as I go. Is it an original idea, no, but I will be documenting my lifetime adventure for future me and mine.

Shock horror, I've never owned an IOS device, so getting my first one, an iPad, seems a great choice to accompany me on my journey.

First hurdle, overcoming my phobia of flying, a 10 hour flight can't be any more scary than a shorter one, can it? Both involve the lunacy of being shot into the atmosphere in a thin metallic (and now plastic) tube!

I would love a new iPad with Retina Display. It would be an awesome upgrade from the iPad 2, and then I would give my iPad 2 to my parents. Thanks iMore!

I want the new iPad4 becuase my wife bascially took the iPad3 from me.Of course if I do get the 4, she'll probably take that and give me back the 3.. Happy wife, happy life, so they say...

Well, since you asked nicely. I would like a new Iphone 5, it would complete my transformation to Aplle after switching to an MBP and getting an Ipad.
Thank you
Happy Holidays

I want a iPhone 5, the reason I would like a iPhone 5 is it would help me with school a lot. It would also help me with work because of the fast processor. I would ask for a iPad but I am always on the go, and need something small and fast.

Well I currently have all the apple devices I want and need but after seeing my younger sister over Christmas and the laptop she's using, this would be a good amount that could go towards a new macbook for her... She's a college student and currently is using a Dell Inspiron 1545 that rarely connects to wifi and has to stay plugged in to stay powered on. I would love to take this gift card and use it towards that MacBook she's always wished she had but she never asks for anything... This would be the most amazing prize to win!!!

Good Luck to everyone!!!!!!

Hi All,

I wish to win an iphone 5, so it can fit the case i've been offered this Xmas!
Yes someone offered me an iphone5-case, and I just have an iphone 4 ...

Merry Xmas at All


I would like an iPad Mini because the arthritis in my hands make it difficult for me to continue to hold and use my full-size iPad. Thanks.

I'd like an iPad mini for my daughter, It would be the best Christmas present!! Good luck and happy holidays everyone. :)

Gave my mother the latest iPad but I have the 1st gen. and it would help me- help her if we had the same model.

I want an iPad Mini... and an iPod touch....but for now I will gladly accept an iGift Certificate that will allow me to ponder which iDevice to actually procure. Why couldn't Santa just decide for me?

I would love an iPad mini. Would be a great substitute for big bulky books for college. eBooks are here and there anyway, spare me the weight!

Happy holidays iMore

I want an iPad Mini. I teach Children's Church at my Church and would love to load a Bible App on it and teach. The iPad Mini would allow for lightweight carry and be a great new technology gadget that I could pass around for the Kids to play with and enjoy as well.

I would love a 4th gen iPad 64GB w/LTE so I can save myself $30/mo. on my Verizon bill, and want to go black this time. Thank you. :)
