MacRumors Giveaway: Win an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max From iMazing

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with iMazing to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an iPhone 14 Pro or ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max and a copy of the iMazing software, which is ideal for iPhone backups and management, going above and beyond the ‌iPhone‌ management tools that Apple provides.

If you're not familiar with iMazing, it's Mac and Windows software that provides useful tools for iOS device management, and it offers a lot more versatility than Apple's Finder-based ‌iPhone‌ management system on the Mac and iTunes on Windows. iMazing has been updated so that it is compatible with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and the latest iPhones.

iMazing provides hassle-free Time Machine-style wireless backups with multiple backup versions available. With iCloud and Apple's Mac/Windows backup tools older backups are overwritten rather than being saved, making it more difficult to get to the backup that you might prefer or even a specific file you're looking for. With iMazing, you can also do your backups on a regular schedule so you never forget to save your data, and you can back up to any local storage device, including an external drive or a NAS, keeping your data out of the cloud.

If you need to transfer photos from an iOS device to a Mac, there's a simple drag and drop option that lets you move your images from one device to another. You can keep what you need and delete what you don't want, and iMazing is able to load HEIF, RAW, PNG, and JPG files so you can see what's what. There's also a built-in EXIF viewer that provides information on file type, size, and location, and iMazing makes organization easy with options to create and edit albums.

imazing photos
iMazing is useful for saving backups of your iMessages or your WhatsApp messages too. You can save all of the content of your messages, like photos, videos, contacts, and links, and export or print that content later if it's needed.

For those who download their own music, iMazing can be used to transfer songs from an iOS device to a computer and vice versa. This can be particularly nice if you have an old ‌iPhone‌ or iPod and no other way to get the music off of it. It supports all media types, including FLAC, and there's a built-in media player so you can listen right in the app.

imazing music
For ‌iPhone‌ upgrades, there's a device-to-device transfer option that lets you pick and choose what you want to move from your old device to your new device. iMazing also has a built-in drag-and-drop Quick Transfer feature for moving files from one device to another, and it's faster than AirDrop or Apple's file sharing methods.

imazing quick transfer
App management features are helpful for those who miss the app access that iTunes used to provide on the Mac. iMazing supports bulk deleting apps, backing up and restoring app data, and downloading apps to the iMazing app library so they can be reinstalled if an app is deleted from the App Store.

imazing options
Those who want to purchase iMazing can do so from the iMazing website, and we have a 40 percent off discount for MacRumors readers. Just use the link above to get the deal. The discount will be available for the full week-long duration of the giveaway.

No one ever wins these. I have never seen any announcement here in Macrumors or their Twitter, nor announcements from the companies who sponsor these about who won. I have participated before in many of these and kept links to them in hopes to ever find the winners and it's impossible.

And if they don't post it here or somewhere else on social media I must say it feels like it's just SCAM!
They don't reveal the winners for privacy reasons.

I have seen several posts over the years in these threads where people mentioned they have won.


I've seen posts in these threads where forum members mentioned they have won in these contests and received their prize.

Edit: Here are a few comments I was able to find.

I have won a backpack a few years back. I asked them about posting my name and they politely declined. I did actually get the backpack though

Yearly subscription? No thanks. Software is such a scam these days.
Hey everyone, I'm part of the iMazing team in Geneva, it's always nice to see the love the MacRumors community shares with us. :)

In addition to the perpetual 3-device plan that Apple_Robert pointed out already, we also have an even cheaper 1-device plan, and you can always add devices later if you need.

The subscription plan is truly meant to be a value-add option for those who prefer that.

We moved to this model about 3 years ago, which also allowed us to do away with paid upgrades for new customers, allowing us to simply focus on building great software without following development cycles that are dictated by paid releases.

Also, we've sponsored this event for a few years now, and I can assure you that we buy the winner their iPhone of choice, as plenty of people here have already attested to. There are still honest communities on the Web!

I don't think I've gotten any spam emails from entering these...but I would love to hear from some of the members who've won the bigger prizes.
