For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with PureGear to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a HomeKit-enabled PureSwitch Wireless Smart Plug.

PureSwitch fits in any standard U.S. outlet, and it's designed to let you manage your energy use by allowing you to wirelessly control whatever's plugged into the Smart Plug. It can turn any appliance or lamp into a smart device that can be controlled alongside the rest of your HomeKit products.

The PureSwitch Smart Plug connects to your HomeKit setup over WiFi, and it can be controlled with the PureSwitch app, Apple's Home app, or Siri voice commands. It can also interact with other HomeKit products and it can be used in scenes for automation purposes.

At $39.99, PureSwitch is priced competitively with other HomeKit-compatible smart plugs on the market, and at one side, there's a built-in 2.1A USB-charging port you can use to charge your iPhone, iPad, or any other USB device.

Like any other HomeKit product, the PureSwitch can be controlled on all of your devices, including iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and with Home hub functionality enabled through an Apple TV or an iPad, it can be controlled remotely.

I stopped reading these Giveaway articles because they were always US-only, but decided to peek into this one and now see that it's open to Canadians, too. What a Christmas present this is! Thanks MacRumors for listening to the feedback of your long-time readers.
It's fun to enter but don't expect to ever win anything with all the entries.

I’ve already won the one thing I’ll ever win in my life. It was the Trader Joe’s weekly raffle. Sure I’d like it to have been something bigger but I was just glad after forty years on the planet to finally win something. It is fun now because I hear people in line questioning whether anyone ever wins and I speak up. It makes you feel special.

When are we going to see it where the outlet itself is actually homekit controllable. These dorky bulky accessory dongles just don't cut it.

Monday January 30, 2023 1:45 pm PST by

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
