MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Plushie Mac, iPhone, or iPod From Throwboy’s Iconic Pillow Collection

For this week's giveaway, we've once again teamed up with Throwboy to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a pillow from the Throwboy Iconic Pillow Collection, which features plush, squeezable versions of classic Apple products.

The Iconic Pillow Collection features five pillows that are modeled after the 1977 Apple II, the 1984 original Macintosh, the 1998 iMac G3, the 2001 iPod, and the 2007 original iPhone.


After a successful Kickstarter launch in 2018, Throwboy has been offering its plushie Apple products on its website for $39.99 or $189.99 for the full set.


Each of the Iconic pillows have been carefully embroidered with intricate detailing to ensure that they look like their hardware counterparts, and in a review we did earlier this year, we were impressed with the softness, huggability, and impressive detail.


Design details include a click wheel on the iPod with appropriate ports on the bottom, a rainbow logo and floppy disk drive on the 1984 pillow, speakers and a disk drive for the ‌iMac‌ G3, a Home button and speaker for the iPhone, and a full keyboard and display for the Apple II.


Each pillow also features the correct colors for each machine. The Apple II and the Macintosh are a light beige color, while the ‌‌iMac‌‌ G3 is in white and aqua. The iPod is white with a gray click wheel, and the iPhone is silver and black like the original model.


When it comes to size, these are the ideal throw pillows for a couch or a chair, making them a great decoration or gift idea for Apple fans. Each pillow is soft, squishy, and comfortable, both to hold and to lean against, but they're also firm enough to hold their shape. Photos of the pillows in action can be seen on Throwboy's Instagram account.


The Mac versions of the pillows are a bit larger than the iPod and the iPhone versions, but all work well as throw pillows or room decor. Throwboy also makes a few other fun pillows like a classic Mac Finder icon and the well-known spinning rainbow wheel.

We have 10 of the Iconic Pillows to give away to MacRumors readers, and each winner will be able to pick their favorite pillow. To enter to win our ‌‌giveaway‌‌, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a USB-C Charger and a USB-C to Lightning Cable From Aukey

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Aukey to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a USB-C/USB-A charger or a dual-port USB-C charger and a USB-C to Lightning cable from Aukey, a company that specializes in Apple accessories.

Aukey has several USB-C options for charging your Macs, iPads, and iPhones, including the PA-D3 and the PA-D5. The PA-D3 (priced at $43) features a USB-C port for charging a USB-C device like a MacBook or an iPad Pro, along with a USB-A port for an iPhone, Apple Watch, or another device. The USB-C port can also be used with a USB-C to Lightning cable for fast charging an iPhone.


The USB-C port is 60W when used alone, or 45W when both the USB-C and USB-A ports are used together, so it's powerful enough for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. It's not going to charge a 15-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ as quick as the 85W charger, but it still works and multiple ports are convenient when traveling.


Aukey's PA-D5 (priced at $50) is similar to the PA D3, but instead of a USB-C and a USB-A port, it has two USB-C ports. When using one port for charging purposes, it delivers 60W, and when using both, one port delivers 45W of power while the other is 18W, so it can be used to charge a ‌MacBook Air‌ and an ‌iPad Pro‌ at full speed, or a ‌MacBook Air‌ while also fast charging an iPhone.


Both chargers feature slim designs thanks to GaN technology, plus there are foldable prongs, which makes them easy to take on the go, and there are built-in safeguards to protect against overheating and overcharging.


To go with its USB-C chargers, Aukey also sells a $14 USB-C to Lightning cable that can be used for fast charging recent iPhones that support the feature. The cable has a braided nylon design for durability, along with reinforcements at each end.


Aukey is providing five of each charger for us to give away to MacRumors readers, with the first five winners receiving the dual USB-C design and the next five winners receiving the USB-C/USB-A design. Each winner will also receive a USB-C to Lightning cable.

To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

Southern Straps has a whole range of high-quality leather and nylon ‌Apple Watch‌ bands, including the brown leather band, which is made from a single piece of full-grain Italian leather. The leather hasn't been sanded, buffed, or snuffed, which gives it an attractive, unblemished finish.

Southern Straps offers a two-year warranty on all of its leather bands, offering a guarantee against wear and tear. The brown leather ‌Apple Watch‌ band is priced at $85 from Southern Straps, but we have five to give away to MacRumors readers.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Cord-Cutting Bundle With Lifetime Plex Pass, Antenna and TV Tuner

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Plex to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a cord-cutting bundle that includes a lifetime Plex Pass, an antenna, and a TV tuner for watching live TV and other content without a cable subscription.

If you're unfamiliar with Plex, it's an all-in-one media hub that organizes your entire library of content, from TV shows and movies to music and photos, plus it offers free access to news, support for Podcasts, access to live TV, and soon, some free ad-supported movies through partnerships with Warner Bros, Lionsgate, and Legendary.


To organize your media content, you can set up the Plex Media Server on a Mac, which makes everything you own accessible on all of your devices through the Plex iOS and Apple TV apps, along with Plex apps for consoles, Android devices, and other set-top boxes. You can watch and stream all of your content along with live TV content, news, and more from your Mac to any device, anywhere.


Plex's Live TV service doesn't require a cable subscription, and it's simple to set up with a digital tuner and a digital antenna. Using a tuner and an antenna with Plex lets you access HD content from channels that are available for free over-the-air, such as U.S. networks that include ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, the CW, plus local programming that includes news and sports.

You can even watch local NFL games, and with Plex's latest update, there's an option to watch live TV while simultaneously recording content through Plex's DVR feature.


Plex's website has the exact equipment you'll need to get up and running with the Plex Live TV feature. For our ‌giveaway‌, Plex is providing a Mac-compatible HD HomeRun Connect Duo that lets you watch content on two devices at once, plus a ClearStream Flex HDTV Antenna.


Using Plex's Live TV functionality will require a Plex Pass subscription, which is priced at $5 per month, $40 per year, or $120 for a lifetime subscription, which is significantly cheaper than cable. Plex is including a lifetime Plex Pass in the ‌giveaway‌, which gives lifetime access to Plex's premium service.


We have two Plex cord-cutting bundles to give away, complete with Mac-compatible tuner, antenna, and Plex Pass. To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Base Station Hub Wireless iPhone Charger From Nomad

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Nomad to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Base Station Hub for wirelessly charging the iPhone, AirPods, and other devices.

The Base Station Hub, which is priced at $99.95, features three wireless charging coils inside, and it can be used to charge two iPhones at once or an iPhone and ‌AirPods‌, or any other device that wirelessly charges.


Along with the wireless charging coils, there's a USB-A port and a USB-C port with an 18W capacity, perfect for charging an iPad through a wired connection. With the wireless charging base and the extra ports, you can charge up to four devices all at one time.


The hub itself is made from an attractive black aluminum covered with a padded leather base for resting your phone on. The leather is grippy enough that your phone won't slip and slide while you use it. There are also rubber feet at the bottom to keep it securely on a desk or table.

When charging a single device, up to 10W of power is available (suitable for something like a Samsung smartphone), and when charging two devices, 7.5W charging is available. That's perfect for the iPhone because it maxes out at 7.5W when wirelessly charging.


The USB-A port offers 7.5W of power, and as mentioned before, the USB-C power is an 18W port. There are LED charging indicators included so you can see when something is juicing up for fully charged, and if you want to use it in your bedroom at night, there's an ambient light sensor that dims those LEDs when it's dark.


You can put your phone sideways (in landscape orientation) on the Base Station so it takes up the entire thing, or position it vertically to wirelessly charge your ‌AirPods‌ or another smartphone at the same time.

This model doesn't charge the Apple Watch, but if you're looking for a multi-charging solution that also incorporates the watch, Nomad makes an Apple Watch Base Station.


Nomad is providing five of the Base Station Hubs to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an iPhone Case and an Apple Watch Band From Pad & Quill

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Pad & Quill to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Bella Fino Edition Case for the iPhone and an Apple Watch band from the Aviator Collection.

Pad & Quill's folio-style Bella Fino Edition Cases are available for Apple's newest iPhones, including the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, and are priced starting at $70.


Like all Pad & Quill cases, the Bella Fino Edition iPhone cases are made from full-grain American leather and are reinforced with UV-resistant nylon stitching. Each case will develop a unique patina over time with use, customizing it to each person.


The Bella Fino Edition has a slim design that adds just 0.28 inches to either side of the case, and it attaches to the iPhone though an interior snap-on case that attaches to the leather of the Bella Fino through 3M adhesive.


There are several card slots inside to hold six to eight credit and debit cards, and there's also a larger pocket that can hold cash. An elastic strap holds the case closed when the iPhone isn't in use, and there's a quick access window for holding a driver's license or ID card.


For all of the different case variations for each iPhone, there's an appropriately sized camera cutout that leaves the camera operational, plus wireless charging is supported. The Bella Fino Edition comes in multiple colors, including chocolate and blue, black and plum, black and gray, whiskey and blue, and whiskey and green.


Along with multiple iPhone case options, Pad & Quill also offers several Apple Watch bands, and the winners for the giveaway can choose either Pad & Quill's Lowry Cuff Edition or Pilot's Band, both of which are available for the 42/44mm Apple Watch models.


The Lowry Cuff Edition is a cuff-style Apple Watch with a cutout that allows the watch to connect to the skin for monitoring heart rate. It's made from full-grain leather with a soft pigskin lining, and it's able to fit wrists sized 125 to 215mm.

Priced at $99.95, the Lowry Cuff Edition comes in multiple colors and features either silver or black lugs to match the various Apple Watch models that are available, plus it has UV-resistant stitching, brass hardware, and rivet reinforcement.


Pad & Quill's Pilot's Band has a simpler design that's no less attractive, made from full-grain leather with pigskin lining. Like the Lowry, the Pilot's Band comes in multiple color options, each of which will develop a rich patina over time.


The Pilot's Band is priced at $79.95 and fits wrists sized 125 to 215mm. Its design is modeled after B-Uhren bands from WWII, and Pad & Quill says it's "nigh unbreakable."


We have three of the Apple Watch bands and three iPhone cases to give away to three MacRumors readers. Each winner will be able to choose one of the two Apple Watch bands and will be able to pick the Bella Fino case that will fit their iPhone.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Adonit Note Stylus for Your iPad

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Adonit to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Adonit Note stylus designed for the iPad, which works as a more affordable alternative to the Apple Pencil.

Priced at just $49.99, the Adonit Note is similar to the Apple Pencil as it does not require Bluetooth to connect to an iPad. Just turn it on and it works.


The Adonit Note has a tiny tip much like the Apple Pencil, so it has the precision needed for note taking, sketching, drawing, and more. It comes in either gold or black, and it looks a lot like a regular pen.


Many of the Apple Pencil features are available in the Adonit Note. You can tap on the iPad with the tip of the Adonit Note to activate the Notes app, so you can jump right into taking notes from the Home screen of the iPad.


The Adonit Note features a replaceable tip so when it wears down, you can pop it off with a twist instead of purchasing a whole new stylus, and it features a long 12-hour battery life. A four minute charge through the micro-USB port lets you use it for an hour, while a 45 minute charge gives you the full battery life.


We reviewed the Adonit Note earlier this year and found that it works just as well as the Apple Pencil in terms of latency and palm rejection. You can rest your hand on the display just like you can with the Apple Pencil, so the experience is similar, but there is no pressure sensitivity.


The Adonit Note is compatible with the third-generation iPad Air, the fifth-generation iPad mini, the sixth and seventh-generation iPad, and the third-generation 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.


We have 10 of the Adonit Note styluses to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, following us on Instagram, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years or older and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) who have reached the age of majority in their province or territory are eligible to enter.

Other new AnyTrans 8 features include a ringtone maker, an app downloader for managing your iOS apps on your computer (a feature no longer available in iTunes or in macOS Catalina) and a screen mirroring feature for mirroring and recording your iPhone screen with your computer.


AnyTrans is priced at $30 for a single license, but there is a free trial available for those who would like to try it out.

AnyTrans is providing one MacRumors reader with a 64GB iPhone 11 Pro Max in the color of the reader's choice plus a lifetime license for the AnyTrans iPhone manager software.


Apple's iPhone 11 Pro Max just came out today, and it features a triple-lens camera with telephoto, wide, and ultra wide angle lenses, a super fast A13 chip, much longer battery life, and more.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an iPhone 11 Pro From SellYourMac

For this week's giveaway, we're doing something special to celebrate the upcoming launch of the new 2019 iPhones. We're teaming up with trade-in site SellYourMac to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of Apple's new iPhones.

SellYourMac is a trade-in company that accepts all kinds of Apple products, from iPhones and iPads to Macs. Selling an old Apple device on SellYourMac is as simple as finding your serial number and entering it in.


The website tool will tell you just what your Apple device is worth with minimal hassle, drawing the specs from the serial number and then asking a few questions before offering up a quote.


SellYourMac offers up a free FedEx shipping label, provide packing materials at your request, and securely wipes the data from your device, making it easy to get some extra cash when upgrading to a new iPhone, iPad, or Mac.


As the name of the site suggests, SellYourMac specializes in buying and selling Apple devices, but with a focus on the Mac. The site's aim is to be the number one choice for selling Apple products, and to reach that goal, SYM offers a streamlined trade-in experience and fair prices to earn customer trust.

SellYourMac is offering an entry-level 6.5-inch iPhone (which may be called the iPhone 11 Pro) to a lucky MacRumors reader.

That means you'll get the larger version of Apple's new iPhone, which is expected to feature a triple-lens camera for some impressive photography capabilities, an OLED display, a faster A13 chip, improved Face ID, and a body that's both more shatter resistant and more waterproof than the 2018 iPhones.


Bilateral wireless charging (so you can charge your AirPods with your phone), Haptic Touch instead of 3D Touch, bigger batteries, and faster WiFi, are all features that we're expecting to see.

2019 iPhone dummy models

Apple is set to announce the new iPhones on Tuesday, September 10 at an event at the Apple Park campus, but there have been plenty of rumors about the upcoming devices so we know just what's coming.

We'll pick the winner of the giveaway next Friday, which is when we expect iPhone pre-orders to take place, and we will arrange to provide the new iPhone to the winner as soon as possible after the conclusion of the giveaway. The winner can, of course, pick the color of the device.
