MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Apple Pencil PencilCozy-S Combo Pack From Cozy Industries

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Cozy Industries to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a PencilCozy-S stylus cap for the Apple Pencil. The PencilCozy-S, designed to attach to the end of an Apple Pencil, serves multiple purposes. It makes sure the Apple Pencil's end cap is never lost when charging, and it also serves as a dedicated stylus that can be used right alongside the tip of the Apple Pencil. The band of the PencilCozy-S slides over the body of the Apple Pencil, while the cap portion fits onto the Apple Pencil cap, keeping the two pieces attached. It might seem counterintuitive to put a stylus cap on the Apple Pencil, but it can be used on any iOS device in any app, and is not limited to the iPad Pro. There's one other added bonus -- it prevents your Apple Pencil from rolling off of a flat surface. According to Cozy Industries, the PencilCozy-S took 11 revisions to get the ideal texture for the best possible stylus experience. It's designed from a proprietary silicone blend that's meant to be supple enough for writing and drawing but durable enough to stand up to being tossed in a bag. At $8.99, the PencilCozy-S is a solid deal, especially because it also ships with a rare earth magnet cap in case you lose your original cap, plus it has a LightningCozy that's designed to attach your Apple Pencil Lightning adapter to a Lightning cable so it's never lost. We're giving away 25 PencilCozy-S accessories to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used

All of Grovemade's products, ranging from Apple accessories to desk sets, are made from high quality wood and leather, and everything matches. Grovemade's docks, priced at $79, are made from wood and solid aluminum. Available in Walnut or Maple, the base of the dock is crafted from solid aluminum with a handmade wooden cap. An iPhone cable routes up through the aluminum base for charging purposes, and it's heavy enough that it's super stable on a desk.

Grovemade offers four different iPhone case styles, ranging in price from $139 to $59.

Available for the MacBook, the 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro, the Syde MacBook Case is priced at $159 and is a simple, slim bag that can hold a MacBook and a few other accessories.

A padded neoprene sleeve keeps the MacBook safe from bumps and scratches and a leather front pocket holds a charger and other odds and ends. A leather handle is included, as is a strap, and there's also a rear pocket for holding documents. The Maxwell Sleeve is also available for the 12-inch MacBook and the two new MacBook Pro models, plus there's an iPad Pro version for Apple's 12.9-inch tablet. Priced at $99 to $119, the Maxwell Sleeve is available in a water-repellant Nanotex-coated material, waxed canvas, or ballistic nylon, and it comes in several different colors (kelly, crimson, slate, cobalt, black ballistic, and waxed canvas, a brown shade). Like the Syde, the Maxwell uses a simple noiseless magnetic closure and offers padded protection for the MacBook, plus it can be ordered in vertical or horizontal orientation. It doesn't have additional pockets or straps (but you can get one if you want), so it's ideal for sticking into another bag or backpack. We're giving away one Syde and one Maxwell, with winners to choose

'WALTR 2' for Mac Lets You Quickly Transfer Any Content to Any iOS Device

Softorino today announced the launch of its next-generation WALTR app, introducing WALTR 2 for Mac. WALTR 2 builds on the features introduced with the original WALTR app, making it easier than ever to transfer any file from a Mac to an iOS device. With WALTR 2, you can transfer all kinds of media file types to an iPhone or iPad, even if they're not in a format that's normally compatible with iOS. It supports music, ringtones, videos, PDFs, ePubs, and more, converting files when necessary. If you transfer an MKV or AVI, for example, WALTR 2 will convert it to a usable format and put it directly in the built-in iOS video app. The same goes for music -- upload any music file and it'll be transferred to the Music app with no loss of quality. Uploaded music is even properly recognized in Apple Music. Using WALTR 2 is simple. You open the WALTR 2 app, plug your iPhone or iPad into your Mac (or use the new Wi-Fi feature) and then simply drag and drop the file you want to transfer to an iOS device into WALTR 2. WALTR 2 works with all iPods, iPads, and iPhones, starting with the iPod Classic from 2001. With Automatic Content Recognition for music, movies, and TV shows, WALTR 2 can fill in metadata information, and a new Wi-Fi detection feature allows WALTR 2 to automatically find nearby iOS devices so transferring content can be done without a USB cable if desired. File transfers go much quicker with a cable though, with Softorino promising average transfer speeds of 2GB per minute. New to WALTR 2 is support for ePUBs, PDFs, and audiobooks, which are automatically

You can choose from an artist-created case, with hundreds of choices available ranging from florals to abstract designs to cartoon characters, or create your own.

If you don't find a pre-designed case you like, Casetify also offers the option of designing your own case with any image or photograph you've captured. You can choose a clear or black case and then use a variety of layouts and templates

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Wayfarer Leather Messenger Bag From Intrepid Bag Co

For the last few weeks, MacRumors has been running a special giveaway event, highlighting high-quality luxury bags from manufacturers like Pad & Quill, Intrepid Bag Co, Whipping Post, and Saddleback Leather Company, and now our event is coming to an end with one final giveaway from Intrepid Bag Co. This week, we're giving away Intrepid Bag Co.'s Wayfarer Leather Messenger Bag, which is superbly designed and undeniably stylish. Made from a thick full grain coffee-colored saddle leather, the Wayfarer Messenger Bag is big enough to hold a 15-inch MacBook Pro and it boasts the most pockets out of any of the bags we've given away while also being the most compact. Measuring in at 16 inches wide by 12 inches tall by 4.5 inches deep, the Wayfarer Messenger Bag has a magazine pocket at the back, a large full-length front pocket, and an interior area featuring a padded MacBook pocket, two deep interior pockets, a main compartment, a pen pocket, a phone pocket, and a pocket with a clasp. The whole bag closes up with two front buckles so the contents stay secure during travel. With all of the pockets and space inside the Wayfarer Messenger Bag, there was room to hold almost any Apple device and accessory I own (MacBook Pro, Retina MacBook, iPad Pro, iPad mini and iPhone), with leftover space for a lightweight hoodie, a water bottle, loose papers, two notebooks, three small books, and other small bits and bobs. The Wayfarer Messenger Bag is super rigid and stiff when it arrives, but it should loosen up and wear in with usage, gaining its own unique, lived in look.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Vintage Messenger Bag From Whipping Post

For the next few weeks, MacRumors is running a special giveaway event, which will see us highlighting and giving away high-quality luxury bags from manufacturers like Pad & Quill, Intrepid Bag Co, Whipping Post, and Saddleback Leather Company. We've got all of these bags on hand so we can give clear details on construction, quality, utility, and more. For today's giveaway, we've teamed up with Whipping Post to give away one of the company's all leather suede-lined Vintage Messenger Bags, designed to pay homage to antique postal bags. Compared to each of the bags in the giveaway, Whipping Post's Vintage Messenger bag is the softest and the lightest, but still with enough structure to hold all of your gear. Measuring in at 18.5 inches by 11.5 inches by 4 inches, it is large enough to hold a notebook as big as a 15-inch MacBook Pro, and it even has a dedicated MacBook or iPad section inside the bag. There's a big magazine pocket at the back of the bag, a smaller front pocket, and an inner pocket divided into two parts. It's thin, which I liked, but it also expands outward once it's filled with stuff, and due to its malleability and its ability to expand, the Vintage Messenger Bag holds a lot of stuff (but it never looks overly bulky). It fit my MacBook Pro, two iPads, several notebooks and loose papers, a water bottle, and a bunch of various accessories and sundries. The inside laptop flap clasps with a leather strap, as does the front flap, keeping both securely shut. The straps are, however, designed in a way that makes the bag easy to open and get into

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a High-Quality Leather Briefcase From Saddleback Leather Company

For the next few weeks, MacRumors is running a special giveaway event, which will see us highlighting and giving away high-quality luxury bags from manufacturers like Pad & Quill, Intrepid Bag Co, Whipping Post, and Saddleback Leather Company. We've got all of these bags on hand so we can give clear details on construction, quality, utility, and more. For today's giveaway, we've partnered with Saddleback Leather Company to give away one of the company's medium-sized Thin Front Pocket Briefcases made from a rich tobacco-colored leather. Measuring in at 15 inches by 11.5 inches by 3.5 inches, the Pocket Briefcase is not a small bag, so it's big enough to hold a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, a Retina MacBook, a 13-inch MacBook Pro/MacBook Air, or a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro. I was able to fit multiple Apple products inside, along with all of their accessories. The Pocket Briefcase is made from a super thick, rugged full-grain leather and features a saddle-style buckle and two outer pockets that also clasp with buckles. When new, the bag is rigid and the main buckle is a bit hard to work with, but it should soften up within a few weeks. The outer leather looks like it'll weather nicely, gaining a lot of character over time from scratches and bumps, and it's undeniably sturdy, made from just a few pieces of leather with careful stitching. Aside from the two outer buckle pockets, a pen pocket, and a rear pocket large enough to hold papers or magazines, there's one main pocket on the inside of the bag, roomy enough to hold the aforementioned laptop along with accessories and
