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




I guess I have to admit it, I am the "Johnny Appleseed" of gadgets, I am always pulling one of my devices out of my front pocket and starting a conversation with a complete stranger to the discontent of my bride of 50 years. Right now, that would mean they get to see my Nexus 7 and flashy things like Street View, or Skyvi (Siri's Sister), or Angry Birds crashing structures. As the Elder Tech Tutor, that's what I do, teach the older generation about wireless gadgets and like most old folks, cheap is good. I typically recommend a WiFi only device because they are lower initial cost and there is no monthly bill which really adds up over time. I have had a chance to play with the iPad mini and it is truly the first Apple device I really like. Being over 70, the iPhone screens were always to small (sorry iPhone 5) and the iPads were all to big to fit in a pocket. Well, being Johnny "Apple" seed, shouldn't I be promoting the flashiness of the Apple iPad mini with 3D maps of NYC & the famous Statute of Liberty or the Sidney Harbor Opera house and the Angry Birds doing mass destruction and listening to the Real Siri with a tablet with a real camera which Nexus 7 lacks. If selected to win the $350, I would throw in the extra bucks and buy the 32GB iPad mini and start promoting Apple. :-) SORRY GOOGLE. :-(

A white ipad mini, 32 GB would be beautiful, but i don't really need that. So if accessories is alright for this contest I would have to go for the Marshall Bergman 11-inch Corbin leather bag.

Because carrying around my 17-inch PC-bag after finally have bought an iPad truly defeats its purpose! I need something slim to carry my gear to work so I can keep my honour intact! :)

my three-year old is holding my ipad hostage. an ipad mini would be nice so she can finally call my iPad "hers"!

An ipod touch or nano would be my choice because getting an outdoor smoker when you live in an apartment with no balcony isn't a very well thought out gift.

I've been living alone in the other state since 17. I would love either one of the iOS device, preferly iPad mini so that my family can facetime me easily.

iPad mini so I can use it for college in writing papers on the go browsing info for classes and possibly getting a stylus and using it as a notebook please it would mean a lot to me if I could win this.

I want an ipad for my wife because she got me one for my birthday but we couldn't afford getting her one for Christmas. She just had our first baby and has been a real trooper, but I really wanted her to have an ipad under the xmas tree for all that she's done this year. It'll still be a great christmas, our house is filled with love, but it would make a wonderful young wife and mother very very happy.

iPad Mini please, I'm an avid Apple fan who would love to have an iPad mini for educational and entertainment purposes.

i want a blue iPod touch 5th generation because I never had an iPod touch before. that iPod would be my first iPod touch ever! :)))

iPhone 5 Please!
Do I really need to give a reason why, I mean it's the iPhone 5 for crying out loud,... but if you must have a reason, I really just want to upgrade my 8gb iPhone 4.

I would love to win an iPad 64GB Wifi. As a teacher, I would find this to be helpful in writing tutorials for my students

I want to put it toward a new iPhone! My iPhone 4S is having some technical difficulties rite now so I just want to upgrade!

I would attempt to purchase a refurbished iPad 3 for my wife who has wanted one for her in-home daycare. The reason for the 3rd generation? Still stuck in a 30 pin world.

ipad mini would be fantastic! It would be more portable because of its slender size and lack of weight, perfect for traveling! you guys rock!!!

iPad mini: My niece really wanted one for Christmas to use for her college classes, but I couldn't afford one this year :-/.

I'd use the iPad mini to capture the moments of our non-profit, myTEAM TRIUMPH (myteamtriumph-wi.org) and share them across our social networks while also sending sweet physical cards of the photos with apps such as Postagram and Sincerely to our challenged athletes! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I'd love an iPad 4 (and my color and size preferences are black and 32 gig only if that information is relevant.) It would come in REALLY handy at school. It'll help me take notes easier during my classes since I don't own a computer.

I want an iPhone 5, because I've had an upgrade since March but haven't been able to drop the cash on it. In the meantime, I've been using this HTC Trophy... yeah, I think it's time for a change.

I would love an iPad Mini. It's sleek design and portability would be great for an everyday on-the-go tablet.

Wanted an iPad mini. The wife and I do not exchange gifts rather we spend the money on the kids. So the iPad mini would be nice!

I really would like the iPhone 5 because I currently have the 3GS and want to FaceTime my brother while he is away in the army.

I would like the iPad mini. I have long been an apple admirer but I have only been able to afford an iPhone 4 I got last year. I enjoy showing off my apple enthusiasm and can't wait to do it with the mini

If I had to choose a device from apple that I wanted the most this holiday season, but was all too unfortunate to receive, it would have been some form of an iPad. It could have been a regular sized tablet, or the new iPad mini--I just really wanted one. My reasoning behind my desire for an iPad is as follows: it would be nice to carry around a tablet at school, as opposed to 4-5 textbooks daily. I travel on public transport and carry them everywhere. It would also make life more complete as an English major. I could have my whole library at my disposal as opposed to carrying my books around. Having an iPad would really provide relief for a very poor college student.

thank you for the opportunity at attempting to win this prize. Happy holidays.

iPad mini. Would love an iPad I can take with me everywhere I go. I recently played with one at the apple store and fell in love with the size. $350 would be perfect as I only need a 16gb version. Thanks imore for another great giveaway. Merry Christmas!

A great contest - appreciate the opportunity to enter! I'd like to have an iPad mini to use for work, reading eBooks for myself and to my kids, not to mention they're just so darn sexy lookin'!

I want iPhone 5 Unlocked preferable 64 GB because my cellphone isn't good and I iPhone 5 is the best cellphone ever

Would so love the ipad mini to compliment the iphone 5 I recently purchased and to help my kids' with their homework! Thanks for the excellent opportunity, imore.

I want to buy and iPad mini because I gave the one i recieved for christmas to my little brother because he got clothes as gifts.

iPhone 5. Because it's actually impossible to reach it in my country -in a legally manner- You know actually it was a pretty lame contest, even if we get the money in order to buy only a very few could get it. The day I was trying to get into the Internet contest something went wrong and I was unable to even participate in it. It was such a terrible experience! ... So now I think it really worths a try here

Oh iPad 2, how smooth is your touch and GUI so flawless.Ipad 2 just what i need to work in school and to do other things.Everbody from me and other have some technology to use but me all i have is nothing but some useless things.If i could get an ipad 2 that will make my days,Thank you

iMore won't pick me. I can always try though. As a former android junkie my first apple product is a iPhone 4S. I would love to give it a sibling in a iPad or possible MacBook Pro or iMac. If Rene found it in his heart to choose me the prize would help greatly in making that happen.

iPad mini because I want my daughter to leave mine alone! And it will help her with reminders and planning. I think an idevice is helpful for people with ADHD!

I would so much be completely overjoyed to receive an iPad mini. I am 14 years old and an iPad mini could change my life. I can't afford a laptop or cell phone plan. An iPad mini would provide an amazing opportunity to do school work on an extremely mobile, yet thoroughly powerful device. The unique chance would let me do so much more for school than I would have ever been able to do before. Also, without a cell phone, an iPad mini would be an absolutely amazing mobile device for just having fun!!!! I can play so many ipad games and watch funny videos, connect with friends, you name it! The mobility of an iPad mini would just be amazing for me!! With such a powerful ability to do school work and to just enjoy myself by connecting with friends, an iPad mini would completely change my life!!!!!! Please choose me!! I would love this chance and I really appreciate this generous gesture! Thank you SOOOOO much! You guys are the best! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!

My boss told us all in October that we would get iPads at the end of the year....not only did that not happen, but we didn't get any bonus whatsoever....

...so, to make up for it, I would love to get an iPad mini!


Would love an iPad Mini. I pledge to voraciously read iMore's RSS feeds religiously and contribute meaningful dialogue to bring the highest level of value to your subscriber base! :-D

I want iPhone 5 because My dad never took for me..my father wanted me to go in engineering line,but I selected medical line.so I prefer iPhone 5 for entertainment,if you guys wish
Merry Christmas!

I'm hoping to get an iPad because my wife and kids keep stealing mine that I have for work purposes! Thanks iMore!

This year has been tough on me since I came out to my family...got kicked out of the house and everything :-/ So I figured a new iPad would be awesome to help me with school.

I'd love an iPod touch/iPad mini because I cant afford to spend money on an iphone and need a good idevice for college. (Have a 1st gen iPad) . Thanks!

I'd love to be able to give my wife an ipad mini to replace her crappy acer a500. I'm typing this on my new logitech keyboard she got me for my ipad 3.

iPad Mini would be great. I'm graduating as an Architectural Technologist in the spring and have seen the amazing value of using tablets as a collaboration tool and would love to start doing that myself.

I want an iPad 4. Was thinking about a windows surface, but iOS has more apps oriented towards artists. ipad mini is too small. I want the iPad 4. Bigger canvas. Come on iMore!

I would love an Ipad mini because I can no longer live without my Ipad and it is getting heavy to lug around with me all the time. I need a mini when I am out and about.

I want an ipad mini Because my mother in law became hooked to the Apple technology and confiscated my old iPad

I really need a MacBook pro, which would help me succeed in my class room next spring when I re-enroll to school. But also having an iPhone 5 would be a blessing as well. Being reunited with 4G speeds is always a plus. But really just having a chance to enter a contest is great for me.

I would like the opportunity to obtain the iPad Mini because I have had every other Apple device and would like to complete the set.

I would love a 4th gen iPad as I had to sell my 2nd gen one to help mum pay the oil bill this Christmas. The iPad was our so called computer.

I'll get the iPhone 5. I gave my 4s to my wife because hers was stolen. I've been using my son's old EVO 4G. Have mercy.


The ipad mini aside from its great design and technology ! but bacause my friend was sick the other day before christmas . and because she helped me with alot of things this year , santa might say she is " good " this year .. And i reallly want to do somthing nice for her for the new year . She is currently at collage and so , i thought it would be really helpful for her if i got her
An ipad mini for collage . Thx again for this opportunity :)

iPad mini for my mom, she wants something that can access the Internet. Here win 95 isn't cutting it.

I would like whatever iDevice I can get because I don't have one right now. I also don't get gifts on Christmas because I have nobody that gets me anything, EVER.

Would buy a 4th Gen iPad to replace my 3rd Gen iPad so I have the latest and greatest... At least for now...

iPad mini for my wife since she would love a smaller lighter tablet and we can't have her using some other tablet, now can we?! Thanks for the great site and contests!

Getting the new iPad 4 would be beneficial being in college; having to walk around with a 40 pound backpack and a laptop bag during the winter is a bit hard at times. With an iPad, about 15 pounds would be taken off my back and I would say a big "thank you" to iMore for your generosity. Thanks guys and happy holidays!!

I bought my wife an iPad Mini for christmas and now I am tapped out! I would love a Mini for myself since I have been so selfless this year. iMore, I enter every giveaway contest you offer for devices - please pick me for this one!! Thanks :)

I would like an iPad for my wife as she has discovered how handy mine is for recipes while cooking.

I would get an iPad since I don't have a tablet in the house, need to see what the excitement is all about.

I'd want an iPad mini because I made the mistake of buying a galaxy tab for a gift earlier this year and it isn't holding up and I get jealous looks when using my iPad.

IPhone5 please. Its my b'day next week. And this would be a great gift from you guys. Thanks for the opportunity. Looking forward to win

iPad mini please...tried to get one for the wife, but pretty much impossible to find the 16 GB white and silver wifi model.

I bought an iPad mini for my girlfriend, but I really would like to have an iPad myself… So if I when I will purchase the iPad mini.

If I win the $350 iTunes card I will buy my brother an iPad Mini To help him with his IGCSE progress and as his birthday gift also

An iPad Mini for me as I am looking to become more "green" in my every day work life, thus allowing me to print digitally, take notes and keep more accurate records without killing more trees. Thank you very much for the opportunity.

I would love to have an iPad mini for my job as a reporter because it would be easier to carry around in my bag and less weight too.

I could use an iPad 4. 2013 is the year that I want to get active in the jailbreaking community, and that would be the first step in doing so.

I would like to get the new 'The iPad' since my fiancé took over my iPad! I may or may not let her play with it as well.

I would love an iPad 4 because my husband bought me and iPhone 5 and an iPad 3 and he has none, he has a wonderful heart , he deserves a surprise now for the wonderful things he gives

My wife and kids needs an upgrade from the original iPad...this would make everyone happy. Thanks iMore!!!

I would love an iPhone 5. I worked overtime just to get my little sister one, just to see her happy first time she actually got what she wanted.

Merry Christmas!!! I want an Iphone 5 because I do not own an apple product yet and would like to see if I like it

I would love to get an iPad because I've been wanting one ever since they came out and I haven't had enough money but if I won this I would have just enough!

I'd love to win a 64 GB iPad Mini because I don't have enough money to buy my own iPad and I want an iPad that is small and portable and the iPad mini is truly portable with it's small size.

I would like an ipad mini, because I love apple products, I love imore website and I have never won anything from an online giveaway before. I hope my luck is good!

I think an iPhone 5 64GB ... as much as I still like the 4 I have had for more than a year, the 5 is a slick technical marvel - and I would be able to exploit the chip and display enhancements ... not to mention that I would like to give the much under-rated Siri a thorough work-out!

A Black and Slate LTE iPad Mini (16-32GB). Primarily for use on my commute to school to do my assignments on and because both my nephew and niece have something to play with.

An ipad mini, ans here is why.

As a math major in college, I use my iPad and an ipen to take class notes. I also have my textbooks on my iPad, but since you can't run 2 apps side by side, I find I'm taking screen shots of my textbooks and pasting in pertinent sections into my notes to do my homework, but then I run into the fact I can't work on a problem and read either my notes or my book at the same time. It would be great to have an iPad mini with me to be my reader tablet, while taking notes on my big iPad. It would make my life so much easier and studying so much more efficient.

I want an iPad mini to gift to my wife, as she works with children with autism and touch educational games are fantastic for them.

An iPad 4 would be great, so my stepson could use it as a laptop substitute for note-taking/lecture-recording at college. And playing games also I'm sure. :D

Thanks, iMore!

Hey Santa now that you have downloaded the new Google maps app you cannot give me any excuses that you landed up in Australia with my iPad mini .
