MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Luna Display Adapter That Turns Your iPad Into a Second Screen for Your Mac

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Astropad to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a Luna Display adapter, a useful dongle that turns your iPad into a second screen for your Mac.

The Luna Display plugs right into your Mac using USB-C for modern Macs or Mini DisplayPort for older Macs, and then with the Luna Display software (available for Mac and iPad), it connects your iPad to your Mac using Wi-Fi.


From there, the Luna Display extends your Mac's display to the iPad, adding true second screen functionality. If you're familiar with Astropad, you'll know it's an app that mirrors the Mac's display to the iPad, but the Luna Display takes that further.


Priced at $80, the Luna Display is an affordable option for those who want a portable second display to use with their Macs.

Setting up the Luna Display takes just a few seconds, which makes it awesome for use both at home or when traveling. The connection between the two devices is seamless with little to no lag, as long your Wi-Fi speeds are decent.


You can use the Luna Display with any modern iPad, including the iPad 2 or later, all iPad mini models, all iPad Pro models, and all iPad Air models. All you need is iOS 9.1 or later. Performance is going to be faster on newer iPads, of course, but older ones work just fine.


As for Macs, the Luna adapter requires a 2011 machine running OS X 10.11 El Capitan at a minimum. For optimum performance, you'll need a 2012 MacBook Air or later, a 2012 MacBook Pro or later, a 2012 Mac mini or later, a 2012 iMac or later, and a 2013 Mac Pro or later.


You can buy the Luna Display from the Luna website, and we also have five of them to give away to MacRumors readers.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Energy Strip and a Light Strip With Extension From Eve

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Eve to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of smart home products that includes the Eve Energy Strip, Eve Light Strip, and a Light Strip Extender.

Eve's Energy Strip, priced at $99, is its newest product, offering up three HomeKit-connected outlets that can be controlled individually or all at once so you can make non-HomeKit products compatible with HomeKit. The three outlets are generously spaced so even bulky power supplies won't obstruct a second socket, plus there's a long 6.3-foot cable.


The Energy Strip connects to HomeKit over WiFi, and you can control whatever's plugged into it through the Eve app, the Home app, or Siri voice commands. In addition to providing HomeKit controls, the Energy Strip lets you monitor total power consumption and track costs for anything that's plugged in, so you can monitor and shut down appliances that are draining energy.


Physical buttons let you turn accessories off if the app isn't available, and Eve has included protection against power surges, overcurrent, and overvoltage. With the HomeKit integration, connected devices can be controlled with other HomeKit products or automated to work on a specific schedule.


The Eve Light Strip is also one of Eve's newer products, and it's one of the brightest HomeKit-enabled LED strips on the market with 1,800 lumens and support for full-spectrum white shades along with millions of colors.


Priced at $80, the Light Strip provides enough light to replace a standard room lamp at its brightest levels. Each Light Strip is 6.6 feet long, but it can be cut at one-foot intervals for use in smaller areas or extended to 32.8 feet using 6.6 foot extension strips, available for $50.


Like all Eve products, the Eve Light Strip is HomeKit compatible and it can be controlled using Siri voice commands, the Home app, and the Eve app. Using HomeKit it can be automated or added into scenes with other HomeKit products.


We have a kit featuring an Eve Energy Strip, Eve Light Strip, and Light Strip Extender for two MacRumors readers. 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.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Laptop Briefcase, Backpack or Sleeve From Solo

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Solo New York to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a backpack, sleeve, or briefcase for the MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air.

Solo New York offers a range of different bags, backpacks, and cases, to keep your Apple products safe and secure, and all accessories feature attractive, streamlined designs without super high price tags. We've got a selection of products to provide to MacRumors readers, as outlined below.


The All-Star Backpack Duffel, priced at $86.99, transforms from a backpack into a duffel and can hold your laptop and a ton of other stuff with its 22.6L capacity. There's a padded space for a MacBook, an internal organizer section, front pockets, and a separate compartment for your shoes or laundry to keep everything organized.


It's made from a tough nylon fabric that's lightweight and stylish, with shoulder straps and multiple hand straps so it's convenient to hold in any orientation.

Solo's Kilbourn Leather Backpack is one of its highest-end products, and for the $250 price tag, you get a quality bag made from full grain pebble leather that's perfect for when you want something classier than a traditional backpack but still need a lot of storage space.


There's a padded laptop compartment that can accommodate a 15-inch Macbook Pro, a separate internal iPad pocket to keep your iPad safe, an easy-access front pocket with a magnetic closure, and a back panel that slides over a luggage handle. Camouflage lining complements the black leather exterior, and padded back and shoulder straps make sure it's comfortable to carry.

If you prefer briefcase styles, Solo's $65 Voyage Briefcase has plenty of room for all of your essentials. There's a padded laptop compartment that's easy to get to, which is ideal for airline travel, plus a separate pocket for an iPad. At the front, there's an organizer section where you can put all of your cables, power adapters, pens, credit cards, and other accessories, and there's space inside the main compartment for everything else.


The Voyage Briefcase is made from a heathered gray material that looks snappy, and there's a removable shoulder strap along with a hand strap. A back strap at the side allows it to slide over a luggage handle for easy travel.

Solo also has the $55 Duane Hybrid Briefcase Backpack, which, as the name suggests, converts from a briefcase into a backpack depending on how you want to use it. There's a padded laptop compartment that fits a 15-inch MacBook Pro, a separate iPad compartment, a large front pocket that's able to hold all of your accessories, and two separate quick access front pockets.


There's a removable shoulder strap, a main hand strap for using it in briefcase mode, and padded backpack straps that tuck away when it's not being used in backpack mode.

Along with bags, Solo makes sleeves and cases for Apple devices, including the Portal Sleeve for the 13 or 15-inch MacBook Pro, which is priced at $33. The Portal Sleeve is a padded laptop sleeve that can be tucked away in another bag, keeping your MacBook Pro safe from bumps and drops. It has an attractive dark gray exterior with camouflage lining, and it matches well with other Solo products.


We have one of each of the above listed products from Solo to give away to MacRumors readers. The first winner picked will receive the Kilbourn Leather Backpack, the second will get the All-Star Backpack Duffel, the third will get the Voyage Briefcase, the fourth will get the Duane Briefcase, and the fifth will get the Portal Sleeve.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win Sphero’s Specdrums and Turn Colors Into Music

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Sphero to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win Specdrums, a finger-worn ring that's designed to turn colors into sounds and music.

Specdrums, priced at $65, fit on your index finger and have an optical sensor built into the front that can recognize colors and translate them into sound using the accompanying Specdrums app.


A simple tap makes a sound, and the sound sets can be customized in the Specdrums app with dozens of options available. For maximum creativity, you can also record your own sounds, and then put them together using finger taps on different colors. Red is one sound, orange is another, yellow is a third sound, and so on.


The app has hundreds of built-in sounds, from drums and other simple musical instruments to rainforest sounds, pop music, hip hop, house music, retro mixes, video game sounds, and dozens of other options.


Specdrums come with a color mat that you can use to make music, but as long as you have the app on an iPhone or an iPad, you can tap the Specdrums against anything colored - rugs, clothing, walls, drawings, and more - to play sounds.


Songs can be recorded in the Specdrums app, so the music you're making can be shared and imported into other apps and software. Specdrums are also designed to work with Bluetooth MIDI apps on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.


Specdrums have a two hour battery life before needing to be recharged using a standard micro-USB cable, and if you want to make music with friends, more than one ring can be used together. As we said in our review, Specdrums are the perfect music making device for creative kids, but adults will enjoy the Specdrums too.


If you want to buy Specdrums, you can get them from Sphero or from the Apple Store, and we also have seven Specdrums to give away to MacRumors readers. 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 Pair of Aukey’s Key Series B80 Earbuds

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Aukey to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a pair of the Key Series B80 Earbuds, which are wireless and connect to your devices using Bluetooth.

Aukey's earbuds are a good option for working out, sports, and other rigorous, fitness-related activities because they're designed to stay in the ears and also offer water resistance.


Design wise, the B80 earbuds feature soft tips that go in your ears along with a wraparound earhook that keeps them in place while you're active. Aukey provides a variety of different ear tips, with three sizes of memory foam and soft silicone to meet all preferences.


These headphones aren't wire-free like AirPods or more expensive earbuds from other companies, but the wire stays out of the way and the $70 price point makes them much more affordable than an alternative like AirPods.


Aukey has designed the B80 earbuds with sound in mind. Features include dual drivers that Aukey says have been "precisely tuned" to generate rich, pure sound with a 10Hz to 22kHz frequency range and aptX-Low Latency. Aukey promises "full, warm lows and mids" combined with "clear and natural highs."


The B80 earbuds ship with a soft silicone case for storage purposes, and they're designed to charge using USB-C, which is convenient if you have other USB-C devices. A 10 minute charge will give you 80 minutes of playback, and when fully charged, the B80 earbuds will last for up to 8 hours.


Three colors are available, including gray, red, and dark gray, all of which have gold accents. There is an included remote for turning the earbuds on, adjusting volume, switching tracks, and phone calls. IPX6 water resistance is included, so these can hold up to sweat or rain, though you won't want to submerge them.


For those who prefer not to have earhooks, Aukey also makes the $50 B60 earbuds, which are similar in design but have a different fit.


We have eight pairs of the B80 headphones 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. To offer feedback or get more information on the giveaway restrictions, please refer to our Site Feedback section, as that is where discussion of the rules will be redirected.

Aukey’s Key Series B80 Earbuds
The contest will run from today (April 19) at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time through 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on April 26. The winners will be chosen randomly on April 26 and will be contacted by email.

The HLS 290 Power Station weighs just 6.6 pounds and measures in at nine inches by 7.8 inches by 5.2 inches.


Jackery says the HLS 290 Power Station has enough juice to charge a laptop up to four times, a tablet up to 14 times, and a smartphone up to 17 times. It's able to power a 32-inch TV for over three hours, and a mini fridge for over three hours. Operation is silent, so it's not noisy like a gas-powered generator.


The HLS 290 Power Station can be recharged in multiple ways, including a solar panel (sold separately and coming soon, a carport, or an AC wall outlet. According to Jackery, it takes eight hours to recharge over AC or with the car adapter or 10 hours with a 50W solar panel. It has a shelf life of three to six months before the battery needs to be recharged, so you can also keep it around in case of emergency.


We have two of Jackery's Honda Power Stations to give away. To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.

Velvet Caviar is best known for its range of unique, eye catching iPhone cases for all of Apple's iPhones from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone XS. If you've ever seen a marbled iPhone case on Instagram or Snapchat, it's probably from Velvet Caviar.

All of the Velvet Caviar cases look great, but are also protective. A plastic shell lined with Firm Flex shock absorbing material protects your iPhone from drops of up to eight feet, and a 3mm lip at the front of the case keeps your display safe too.


Along with cases, Velvet Caviar has nifty little rings that are an alternative to the Pop Socket. The $10-$12 Phone Holder Ring features a fun shape or pattern while offering the utility of a ring that gives you a better grip on your iPhone for taking pictures, FaceTiming, and more.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Set of Bluetooth Trackers From Tile

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Tile to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of Tile Bluetooth trackers that are designed to help you keep track of your most precious and essential items.

Tile makes small Bluetooth enabled tracking accessories that you can put on anything that you don't want to lose, from keys and wallets to your phone, your camera, your watch, your purse, or anything else you don't want to lose.


The idea is that you attach a Tile to something like your keys, and then if and when those keys are misplaced, you open up the Tile app and use the Bluetooth connection between the Tile and your phone to see a map with the location of your keys and to play a sound on the Tile itself. If you lose your phone, you can tap on the Tile and it'll ping your phone, so there's two-way tracking available.

Tile makes a whole range of trackers for different items and purposes. The Tile Pro, for example, is Tile's most advanced tracking accessory. It has a Bluetooth tracking range of 300 feet and it's 3x as loud as other Tile trackers, so it's best for your most valuable items.


With Tile Pro's long tracking range and loud volume, it's appropriate for your purse, your camera bag, your laptop bag, and other things you want to make sure you can keep an eye on and protect from being lost or stolen. Tile Pro is Tile's most expensive tracker at $35, but discounts are available for multi-pack purchases.

Tile Mate is similar to the Tile Pro, but it's a bit more compact and it's more affordable at $25. Tile Mate, like Tile Pro, has a user replaceable battery so you can use it indefinitely. Tile Mate can work from up to 150 feet away over Bluetooth, and 1.5 times louder than other Tile products.


Tile Slim, priced at $30, is Tile's slimmest Bluetooth tracker that's perfect for tucking into a wallet, a passport, or sticking onto the back of a device like a laptop or iPad. Tile Slim has a 100 foot range and it's not quite as loud as the other Tile trackers, but it's still perfect for items where thinness is key.


All of Tile's trackers, from the Pro to the Mate to the Slim will last for one year with the original battery that ships with them. On all trackers but the Slim, you can replace this battery when the year is up, a feature that was added to Tile trackers last October. If you don't want to hassle with battery replacements, Tile has a premium program that offers free battery replacements along with a detailed location history and unlimited sharing, so you can let friends and family help you find a misplaced item.


Tile's trackers are designed to locate your devices close by when they're in Bluetooth range, but the Tile app has a Community Find feature that leverages all the Tile trackers out in the wild to find a lost item if it's not in the vicinity of your own phone, which is a useful bonus.


For MacRumors readers, Tile is offering two tracker bundles that include four Tile Pros, four Tile Mates, and 1 Tile Slim so you can add Bluetooth tracking to all of your important belongings. To participate in the 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 Monitor Stand and Hub for iMac From Satechi

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub designed for the iMac or the iMac Pro.

Priced at $89.99, Satechi's USB-C iMac Hub raises the foot of the iMac to what Satechi says is an optimal viewing angle and adds an array of useful easy-access ports. It includes three 5Gb/s USB-A ports, a 5Gb/s USB-C data port, an SD card slot, an audio jack, and a micro SD card slot.


iMacs don't suffer from the same lack of ports as Apple's notebooks, but all iMac ports are located on the back of the machine, which is not always convenient. The iMac Hub puts them right within reach and adds additional ports for you to use.


It's quite a bit easier to use an SD card slot on the front of the iMac than on the back, which will make this hub worth it for photographers, drone operators, and others who often need to access SD and micro SD cards. Make sure to check out the review we did on Satechi's USB-C iMac Hub for a closer look at the ports and how it performs in day to day use.


Available in either silver or space gray aluminum, the iMac Hub has been designed to match well with Apple's iMac lineup. The Hub is designed to plug in to one of the four available USB-C ports on modern Macs, though it is also compatible with older Macs using an included USB-A to USB-C adapter. It has a short cable, which prevents cord mess.

The iMac Hub raises the iMac up 1.63 inches, and while it's not adjustable, Satechi says that this cuts down on neck strain and encourages better posture.


We have five of the USB-C iMac Stand Hubs to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.
