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



i would like an ipad mini ,because i think i would prefer the smaller size. more portable in my opinion

I would really like an iPad 4, I have an iPad 2 now but I would really like to give it to my mom as she is 84 years old and lives 250 miles away from me. if I win a new IPad and can give her my old one the we could FaceTime so I could at least see her more often. Than you.

Would love to get an iPad because my daughter will be required to have one for school next year. Perfect gift for her.

IPHONE 5. I always dreamed about an iphone, never owned one. It is simple too expensive here in czech republic. I entered many many contest and never won :) this one is the one!

iPhone 5... since I've been dying to try a "will it blend?" experiment of my own with my current iPhone... you know, in the name of science.

I want the ipad 4g because i would love to see in big screen my family when we are 3,604 km,far away :/.and ipad is small and thin and i can have it with me all time. ^^

My twin boys have been diagnosed with speech apraxia and there is a excellent app on the app store their speech therapist has been using to treat them with. I can have their progress leapfrogged if I could have an iPad or an iPad mini for supplemental treatment.

Thank you for your consideration.

I live in South Africa and needless to say Apple products and actually tech in general is pretty expensive here relative to the rest of the world. An iPad or iPhone would be a fantastic belated Christmas gift which I could give to my wife :)

I would be happy to have any of them. I have the original Ipad and my 3 year old son has taken over it.....wet fingers in all!!! I could really use a new one of my own. Can't afford to buy one after Christmas spending on the Kids!!!!!

I'd love the new iPad so I can use it in my classroom with my kids. They would all love it! As would I!!

I'm a mom of two awesome teenage girls and always making sure they come first before any of my needs so for once I would love to have the one thing I have been wanting which is an iPad, it'll make my year :))

I am a mother of two awesome teenage girls and always make sure that there needs come first before mine so for once i would love to have the one thing that i have been wanting an iPad, it'll make my year :))

An iPad mini for my wife. We bought my son one for Christmas and she loves it! She's wanted an iPad for a year but won't buy one for herself.

I would love an iPad Mini to give to my girlfriend as an alternate to purchasing a full blown computer. She is one of those that says she doesn't need it, but when it's in her hands she won't know how she survived without one. Thanks for the great contests!

I want a new ipod Nano or touch... I got great new bluetooth headphones for running but my old nano doesn't have bluetooth and it is mighty tough to run with my ipad in hand!

I would love to be able to get the new iPad for my fiancee. She could go nuts and she deserves it! Good luck everyone.

I'm currently using a Generation 1 Windows Phone (Samsung Focus) and would LOVE to get a new iPhone. We just had a new baby, and don't have the money to buy new tech toys, so this would be awesome to win. Thanks, imore!

If I were to get an iDevice of my dreams right now I would probably get the iPhone 5. The extra screen size and LTE would be a nice upgrade.

Since I got an iPad Mini for Christmas, I'd like to get an iPhone 5; my 4S is nice, but I want that bigger screen for that extra row! It'd make organizing my home screen that much easier! =D I could even give my 4S to my Sister, since her 4 has been acting up lately. =\

I want an iPad mini for my husband. He got us iPhones for Xmas and I would love to give him an iPad.

Awesome Christmas. But, Santa didn't bring my white/silver iPad Mini.

Happy New Year iMore

an iPad would be good for me, it would be great for me when I'm traveling around or just need a media device around the house. It would be my first one.

I desperately want an iPad, because I've NEVER owned an Apple product. I want to use it this summer to use the MLB At Bat app and follow my favorite teams! :-)

I got a Apple TV for Christmas from my wife, but I really want a iPad Mini. The ATV is cool, but a Mini with Airplay and Mirroring will be the ultimate setup for me.

I'd love an iPad mini. I wasn't sold on one until I got to use one for a half hour or so. Now I think it's a must have gadget. Plus my daughter keeps my iPad2 with her 90% of the time so it would be nice to have one again.

Oh pick me please!? I would like an iPad to give to my gf or a family member. Especially if they're frequent travels.

iPad mini woulr be amazing. I dont have a tablet an something like the size of the mini would be great. Thank you

I would love to have an iPad mini... I have an older gingerbread Android tablet that is worthless, and I should have waited for the iPad mini!

I'd get an iPad Mini to replace the Nook Tablet I got last year for Christmas... Nook just doesn't cut it. iOS all the way!!!

That will just about cover the price of an iPhone 5 with early upgrade! My iPhone 4 is on its last leg! Help me out!

I want an iPad or iPad mini to carry around with me instead of my stupid 17" laptop. What a mistake buying that thing.

I would love to give my wife her very own iPhone 5, but after our three kids' ChristmaHanukKwanzica, I have -$44.87 to my name... :(

iPad Mini, 16GB WiFi White, thanks. That will replace my iPad 2, which I will send to my 14 year old for his birthday in February w/ Otterbox Defender case. :-D

ipad mini, recently had an ipad 2, was great but i would like a smaller tablet...im an apple freak from the ipod nano watchband 2 and macbook, i would love and ipad mini to complete me!

I would like a Mini w/ LTE because then I can give my iPad 3 to a relative that wants an iPad but can't afford one.

I would love to win the iPhone 5 because my BlackBerry Bold 9780 is literally falling apart buy my phone plan lasts another year.

I would to have an iPad 4 or the iPhone 5. Very jealous that everyone around me has one and I am still out of date.

I would like an iPad Mini. I wouldnt need to bring my heavy laptop to campus at my university wth me everyday, and I would be able to load it with all my books.

Another great contest! I'd love to get my hands on a white iphone 5 for Verizon, since I'm not available for an upgrade until next October! Was lucky enough to get a white ipad mini for Christmas but the one the my heart desires is the iphone 5. Thanks imore for the opportunity.

I want the IPad Mini because its the coolest device out as of now and all of the Cool Kids have it. I want to be a cool kid again. I want to enjoy what Apple has to offer in a Tablet form. Switched to the Iphone 4 and then 5, as a previous Android User. And theres no turning back. I will no longer pay for quantity. I will only pay for Quality! Apple! Please, IPad Mini Guys...........Ipad mini :)

I would like to win so I can give my 7 year old niece a iPad mini. I was unable to purchase her one for Christmas due to unforeseen circumstances and it was a promise that I regret not being able to keep. She has very bad ADHD and my sister (my niece's guardian) feels that a iPad mini would keep her occupied with games, books, educational apps and so forth. I have been at a financial disadvantage for most of the year, but I'd hoped to give my niece this present. Perhaps if I'm lucky enough to be selected, I can still make that promise come true for her. Thanks.

I would like to get an ipad 4 to pass on to my 7 year old step-son. He suffers from Tuberous Sclerosis, seizures and is terminal. He currently plays on my ipad and it seems to help occupy him for learning and playing. He loves to doodle with the apps and loves anything with colors and fun, like games. I believe that being able to provide him with his own ipad will benefit him in his cognitive and mental growth. A gift like this would be something he would cherish and love for years to come.

I want an iPad mini because my wife and I both have iPhone 4 8 GB and we want a tablet with the latest technology as a companion. Plus we're starting to like Apple over Android. Our tablet is so old.

My wife also has taken over the iPad and when it's not her it's our 8 year old daughter. I'm tired of having girly games on it.

I need my own!!

Would love an ipad to help my autistic lil brother. Been doing some research and kids with autism really take to these things. Would love to try it as I cant find anything so far that peaks his interest. Would buy one but darn they're expensive here.

I would love a new iPad 4. My original iPad has a smashed screen and I can no longer use it. It was my go-to everyday device for taking notes in class and I really miss it :(
Please hook it up iMore!!

iPad Mini please. To keep my daughter entertained on road trips and so I can keep up with the blogs I follow.

I want the iPad mini because it's so convenient to carry everywhere I go since it's small and lightweighted :)

iPad Mini. I do a lot of onsite photography. The iPad Mini in combination with the Eye-Fi card will allow me (and my clients) to review the photos instantly. Viewing the photos on a larger screen than the built-in screen of the DSLR camera will allow me to make sure that I captured 'just' the right shot!

I had ipad 3 from first day came out till sept. when i had to sell to pay bills cause of economic struggle. We love to get that new ipad 4

I'd love to win for new iOS device of my dreams! :) I didn't ask for one for Christmas but winning one? I can ask for that!

iMore = Awesome!!!! I'd love to have a black iPhone 5 because my current phone needs upgrading bad and I want 4G speeds.

Ipad Mini. Disappointed about the display, but love the size and go-anywhere usefulness. Not perfect, but perfect enough!

I would like to get an iPad with retna display. I have never owned one. It would be nice to use facetime with my Air Force son that has one.

I would love an iPad mini because it would make an awesome first iPad!

Thanks for the great contest imore!

I would like an iMac. I have a stupid 5yr old PC that is slow as molasses. I rather just use my iPad for everything, but it has it's limitations; of course.

An iPhone 5 would do me good! I'd love the camera , retina screen and would use the increasingly popular PassBook app built into iOS 6 .

i would like a ipad mini black because i had never EVER had an apple device, ihad android phones but their not as good a ios devices and would be lovley to try out this new ipad. i would like to have one for college too. thanks and have a happy holiday and new year.

I would like an Ipad 4 to replace my BB Playbook so I can be a full convert. As I was a BB user/abuser all the way till the IPhone 5 then I switched and now I want to replace my PlayBook with the IPad 4.

Well me and the wife made sure our kids got what they wanted, after all was said and done we didn't have the funds to spare for each others gift, her request was an iPad, dosent matter which one she just wants one. I think it would be pretty epic to surprise her for my birthday, she wouldn't see it coming.

I would choose iPhone 5. it will be my 2nd iOS if I get it, since my iPod 4th had bought by my friend. I am just big fan of apple...

Would love to get my wife an iPad mini. Spent most of our money on getting gifts for my son and our families. This would make an awesome gift for her.

Want an iPad Mini with cellular because no one should restrict their tablet to an access point unless money is a concern.

I have to be honest, at least here, once I don't want say to people's face what I think. I got gifts for a bunch of people I am close with. I don't give things to get things back, but I could not stop thinking I only got crappy stuff this Christmas and when I say crappy, I meant CRAPPY, and when I got a "box", just a cardboard box covered with fake crocodile skin, a fancy box, I just could not hide my disappointment. I got everyone a nice gift, but myself, I should had got the iPad I wanted.

meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. please?

My fiancé is going back to school and a new iPad would be awesome to use for research or when she is using laptop, there is still a device to use in the house

I would love the Ipad mini. I can use it to take to class to take notes and log in to the virtual class room.This can also help me do my homework or read my book while I am on break at work.Hope I win.

I'd like to streamline my study methods on my way to med school by using an iPad (4) to hold all of my books and serve as a universal note-taker =)

I need an iPad to complete my Apple conversion. Eight years ago, I would not have touched an Apple product. Now, any phone or computer I buy HAS to be APPLE!

iphone 5, I want LTEEEEEEEE. Since the iPhone 5 came out and everyone switched to LTE the downtown Nashville TN socalled4g us HORRIBLE. at home on socalled4g I get upwards of 6mb but downtown I get 1mb, if I am lucky.

What really sucks is AT&T has a corporate office downtown (famous batman building) and that doesn't seem to mean anything to them.

I would love to get a iPad mini. I spent 20min fondling one last month at the apple store. Thank you.

I desire to have an iPad Mini so I can use it with my ESL clients. Blending tech with language learning is the way to go.

I would love a new iPad Mini! Why? Because its beautiful and I need something beautiful to make this a better Christmas for me.

I would like to get the iPad mini to use and take it to school with me for books, take notes, write papers and of course for music while studying and doing homework.

I'm gonna be honest, I'm not sure why I need an iPad but I just know I gotta have one. I have this generic Android tablet (elocityA7) and to be blunt "it ain't an iPad". Apple did it first, Apple does it best.

I really, really want an iPad 4th gen. I've never won anything before, and would love for you to be my first.

I would love to have an ipad mini for school. I'm taking online classes and the majority of our reading is on ebooks and using my laptop to read is not the answer especially at work or riding on the bus.

Cool. I would like to get an ipad mini that makes it easier to read textbooks instead of carrying those heavy books around.

Again, I would love an Ipad mini. It seems like a perfect travel device and it will be my first tablet.

So please just give me an Ipad mini.

My wife just earned her LPN license, and is currently working toward her RN license. An iPad Mini would be an ideal tool to assist her during her class modules and Clinical assignments. She uses some great medical apps on her iPhone to assist her with drug interactions and element tables, but the iPhone size is not always conducive to view necessary medical data.

I want one iphone because i want to show it to my brother because he says buy an iphone from your own money,i know that you cant. So i want to tell him that don't underestimate anyone and that i can get things without your money also.

I didn't receive any Xmas gift, huhuhu I'm so sad
I hope imore would give me an iPad mini as a Xmas gift,,,,please !!!!!!!!

I want an ipod touch 5th generation because i'm so into music and it's got great specs and good form factor of being very light and portable,so i can carry it with me all the time not only for listening music but also for clicking pictures.....:-D
Hoping that i can win this gift certificate so i can purchase the device.
Thank you imore for giving me another chance at winning this gift certificate.

I would like a new iPad or iPad mini since my 17 month old decided to drop mine on a tile floor on Christmas

I would love an iPad mini. I have more use for the smaller form factor than the larger and I have been waiting since the first iPad for this smaller device. Android tablets just don't compare.
