MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Apple Watch Ultra From iMazing

To celebrate the upcoming release of watchOS 10, we've teamed up with iMazing to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Apple Watch Ultra, Apple's top-of-the-line Apple Watch option, and a copy of the iMazing iPhone backup software.

For those unfamiliar with iMazing, it's an ‌iPhone‌ management app for Mac that's an alternative to Apple's Finder-based ‌iPhone‌ management system. You can get it on Windows machines too, where it can be used instead of iTunes. iMazing offers far more versatility than Apple's built-in ‌iPhone‌ management options, and it will be ready to go for iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma when the updates launch.

With iMazing, you can create hassle-free wireless backups of your ‌iPhone‌, with multiple versions available. With iCloud backup, new backups overwrite your old backups, so you can get in a sticky situation if you need access to something that was overwritten. You won't lose older files that you might be looking for with iMazing, and there are even options to schedule your backups regularly. Backups can be saved to any local storage device, including a NAS, keeping your data out of the cloud.

For transferring photos from an iOS device to a Mac or vice versa, there is a drag and drop option for moving images around. You can keep the images that you want and get rid of the clutter, with iMazing offering support for HEIF, RAW, PNG, and JPG files. A built-in EXIF viewer shows data on file type, size, and location, plus there are tools for creating and editing albums for easy organization.

Backups of iMessages and WhatsApp can be created with iMazing, and not only can you save all of the text, it also keeps a copy of photos, videos, contacts, and links. iMazing is also useful for music management because you can transfer songs from an iOS device to a computer or from a computer to an iOS device. It's particularly useful if you have an old ‌iPhone‌ or iPod and no other way to get the music off of it, or if you simply want a way to manage physical media without relying on cloud music services. All media types are supported, and iMazing has an included media player so you don't even need to swap apps to hear your songs.

iMazing makes upgrading to a new device easy with device-to-device transfers. You can pick and choose what you want to move from your old device to your new device, and there is a drag-and-drop Quick Transfer feature if you just want to move a few files.

For apps, iMazing keeps backups and can be used to restore app data of deleted apps, plus you can do quick mass cleanups with just a few clicks if your ‌iPhone‌ tends to get cluttered with apps.

If you want to get a copy of iMazing, you can do so from the iMazing website. iMazing is priced at $39.99 for a single device, with multi-device licenses also available.

We have an Apple Watch Ultra and a free copy of iMazing for one lucky MacRumors reader. To enter to win, use the widget below and enter an email address.

To all those who inevitably question whether these giveaways are real, you better steer clear of this. I’ll enter and deal with the trauma of a “fake giveaway” so you don’t have to.

At the risk of giving too much away, I’d just like to respond to any possible naysayers and chime in that these contests are definitely real, and VERY appreciated!

I’ve never had the chance to use an iMazing product before, and look forward to giving their software a try ?

Hey my current watch is a 5, so I'd take it!

... but I'm going to win so it's moot anyway, of course. :p
May the Force Be with you!

Why Quebec people are excluded? It’s sad, I would have participate.
Quebec laws regulating contests and giveaways are very restrictive and cumbersome to adhere to so many small companies and organizations choose to exclude the province in their promotional activities.
