Did you get a new iPhone or iPad for Christmas?


IPad minis for the family. One each for my wife and I, and one for my seven year old. Mommy travels a lot for work so FaceTime will be handy. We are all loving them so far.

Got a iPad 3 64GB wifi edition
iPhone 4S 64GB
And a 15' MacBook Pro all at BestBuy
This was a great Christmas for me thanks to my wife who knows that I am a gadget lover

My wife and I got each other 16GB iPhones. No cases just yet. We didn't account for that while shopping for the children. Hopefully we don't scratch them up before we can afford the cases. Happy Holidays.

Santa brought my wife and I each 16GB iPad Minis and I got a new MacBook Pro 13". We're not gonna be productive for a while. Now I'm even more upset that The Daily is gone through. It was the only decent news app for iPad.

16GB iPad Mini (white) for my 11yo daughter
16GB iPad Mini (black) for my wife
No Apple stuff for me this Christmas (I have what I need already).

iPad 16GB Wifi Black, 4th Gen. My wife surprised me with it, since I was planning on getting one on the 26th.

I almost have enough money for the iPad Mini 16GB. Might get one this week. Not sure. Just need 100 dollars more.

This year my lovely husband gave me the new 21.5 iMac! Unfortunately, it was a sad day because a couple hours after setting it up, hubby had an accident and is now in the hospital. Haven't been able to enjoy it yet and feel kind of guilty :(

Got a new 64gb iPod Touch 5G for myself!, Color I choose was blue......Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Got my wife an iPad mini in black. She has arthritis, so the lighter weight and smaller form factor are an upgrade from her existing iPad 3, which goes to family. So much easier to carry around and hold.

iPad mini, white, 32gb, wifi/cell, nice blue cover, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is REALLY GOOD TODAY. Gift from the kids. Wiped and set up my gen 1 iPad for the wife.

Apple TV 3 for me. An iPad 4 (64GB/Wi-Fi/black) with a Logitech Ultra-thin Keyboard (black) for my wife. iPhone 5 (32GB/white) for my first daughter, and an iPad 4 (32GB/cellular/white) for my second daughter.

iPad mini 32GB white wifi only. Got a red smart cover but am waiting for the cygnett iPad mini red vector case so only using the smart cover in the mean time - SO PARANOID

I've got an iPhone 4S 32GB White for Christmas!
Anyway my dad gave it to me...
I am using iWalk bumper. It's awesome and 100% scratch proof as it doesn't get direct contact with the table or any surface.

I got a nice new iPhone 5 in white. 16GB. I got iTunes Match and Spotify so size is not an issue for me. For the people who got a 4S, why? LOL

I got a black 64 GB wifi iPad mini. Actually, I've had it for a month, but it was technically a Christmas present, so I'm gonna mention it. I also must say that I hope Apple releases a 128 GB iPad next year. I've got so many games, I can't even fit them all in 64 GB.

My wife and I both got 16gb iPhone 5's to replace our aging 4's... She got white and I picked a black one. LOVING the phones and Siri!

Only really different accessory this time was a Zagg HD Screen protector. So far, so good!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Got some stuff:
-iPhone5 64gb
-MacBook Pro Retina 13" 256GB
-iPad4 64GB wifi+cel
-2TB Time Capsule
BestBuy got better prices than Apple at the time...

I got the iPhone 4S for my wife and 15 year old daughter. Neither one wanted the iPhone 5. It's the first iPhone for my daughter so she was very excited. She is also loving her Lifeproof case. She took it out with her to play in the snow with some kids in the neighborhood and it was nice to not worry. She got some good pictures too. As for me, I will probably get the iPhone 5 next week when I have another upgrade available. I like to have the latest, they don't care as much I guess.

Got black iPad 4 gen 32 gb wifi vía Amazon, it was tax free and low price 621$ on blackfriday .Apple store charge 50$ of tax (no thx). Also bought the stm grip case, so far Best case ever! Extras: 1 USB to lighting cable and the lighting to vga for school :) happy holydays

Hey Georgia,
I got the new iPad Mini 32 gig black wifi/AT&T cellular for Christmas. I'm considering it an upgrade from my 1st gen. iPad. I was an early adopter of the original 3G iPad and was able to swap my AT&T unlimited plan to the new device. We'll be keeping the original at home for wifi only use for the family while I start using the new lighter device for work. I got a Roocase hard case for it and a lightning to 32 pin adaptor so I can continue to use my old camera kit and other components with the new Mini. The weight differences between the to devices are very noticeable and I enjoy now having cameras in the device. Now I can read my emails while my 3-year-old grandson monopolizes the iPad 1 watching YouTube videos. Hope the iMore Team had a Merry Christmas and wishing you all a Happy New Year.

Got 4 new 16 gb wifi Pad minis for the wife and 3 kids. 2 in white for my daughters and black for son and wife. Everybody happy happy happy!

iPad mini 64GB/LTE AT&T version black model. Ordered the Concerti case from Moshi. Restored from iCloud my iPad 3 apps and settings. Works like a champ. Battery life over 10 hrs.

I got a bunch of movies on Blu-ray, because that's all I really wanted. Though I did get the new 5th generation iPod touch for my birthday in November. Does that count?

I didn't get anything cool iPads for Christmas. I checked under the tree for anything that resembled an ipad box. Closest i got was a what'll heard trimmer. So today I said screw it and went down and got my a white ipad 4 white 16 gig. I am kind of regretting going only 16. I may go bAck tomorrow and get a 32. I had to have iPhone 5 when it first came out so I am good in the department. Damn I just live anything apple. Wish there was a way to share the memory between the two devices.

Got my lady friend a White 32GB LTE iPad Mini on Verizon, her first Apple mobile device ever. To my surprise I open up a Black 64GB LTE iPad Mini on Verizon. Stoked!

Thanks to you guys, this is my second iPad mini. I received the black & slate 32GB early December, and now I just won another one, which I'm giving to my mother. It's white & silver 16GB, really nice. So now we have a Yin and Yang combo...LOL!!! These iPad minis are pretty amazing and super compact. Way easier to handle than iPad. I recommend and give them 10 thumbs up!!! Apple & iMore ROCKS!!!

32GB iPad Mini, Black... though I had to take it back as it had 2 dead pixels. The Apple Store here didn't have any replacements, so they gave me a gift card and now I'm just waiting for them to get more in stock. =( At least I still have my 4S and 3rd Gen iPad!

I got a 16 GB Black Wifi iPad mini!!! Just got a Griffin Survivor case for it last night at Best Buy too, LOVIN IT LOVIN IT LOVIN IT!!!

iPad mini black 64gb + LTE ! Awsomest wife ! Clear plastic snap on case, dark grey smart cover and ZAGG smudge proof screen protector. All the protection possible for my new baby!

For Christmas I asked for an iPad 3, iPod 5, and an Apple TV. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of these devices. So I'm stuck with my slow 8gig iPod 4

We've gotten the kids Apple gadgets for the last three years. Iphones and Tablets were great the first two years but they weren't that impressed last year. This year they told us they want something different for Christmas the X-Box One. I think Apple and other gadgets are getting stale and boring they wanting something different now.
