Thank you, Opera VPN!

When Opera heard we were working on sponsorships for iMore, they began chatting with our publishing team to see how best they could take part.

The result: An iPhone 6s giveaway — make sure you enter now — and a series of articles following up on our WWDC coverage, all brought to you with minimal advertising, courtesy of the company's new app, Opera VPN.

Opera VPN, from the team that brought you SurfEasy, lets you block ads and trackers, and change your virtual location to the U.S., Canada, Germany, Singapore, or the Netherlands. And yes, it has a viking mascot.

Our thanks to Opera for sponsoring iMore this week. Be sure to check out Opera VPN in the App Store, and keep an eye out for the awesome post-WWDC features we'll be bringing you together!

We test and review VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:

1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service).

2. Protecting your online security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad.

We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
