MacRumors Giveaway: Win an iPhone 13 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 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max with up to 1TB of storage and a copy of the iMazing software, which is ideal for iPhone backups and management.



If you’re unfamiliar with iMazing, it’s Mac and Windows software that provides a range of handy tools for iOS device management, and it offers more versatility than Apple’s Finder-based iPhone management system on the Mac and iTunes on Windows.



iMazing allows for hassle-free Time Machine-like 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. With iMazing, you can also do your backups on a set schedule so you never forget to save your data.



You can browse through all of your backup snapshots to see your saved data, with backups able to be saved for weeks, months, and longer. Backups can also be encrypted for privacy, and iMazing backups are useful for device-to-device transfers like when you upgrade your iPhone.

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, and 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.



iMazing is also useful for saving backups of your iMessages or your WhatsApp messages. You can save all of the content of your messages, like photos, videos, contacts, and links, and export 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 handy if you have an old iPhone or iPod and no other way to get the music off of it. Data remains local, with nothing uploaded to the cloud when you’re working with iMazing.

If you want to see what makes iOS tick, you can also dig into system files, find logs, access a real-time device console, and check device diagnostics, including information on the iPhone’s battery. Configuration and supervision tools are available for small businesses, making it easier for them to manage multiple devices.

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 gets regular updates, and some of the newest features include spyware detection and a podcast management feature. iMazing is compatible with iOS 15 and the upcoming macOS Monterey update. Those who want to purchase iMazing can do so from the iMazing website, and we have a 30 percent off discount for MacRumors readers. Just check out with the promo code MACRUMORS21 to get it.

We have one iPhone 13 Pro or Pro Max to give away to a lucky MacRumors reader. The winner will be able to choose their preferred device, including storage space and color.

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.

The contest will run from today (September 17) at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time through 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on September 24. The winner will be chosen randomly on September 24 and will be contacted by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond and provide a shipping address before a new winner is chosen.

Apple and Belkin Reducing Environmental Impact of Packaging With iPhone 13 Launch

During Tuesday’s media event, Greg Joswiak noted that Apple has redesigned the packaging for the iPhone 13 lineup to eliminate the traditional outer plastic wrap on the box, a change that will avoid creating 600 metric tons of plastic waste.



As shared in a tweet by leaker DuanRui earlier today, it appears that Apple’s solution is one already used on many Apple accessories, involving a sticker with a tear-off strip that secures the box until it’s ready to be opened.

— DuanRui (@duanrui1205) September 17, 2021

Apple is not the only company making changes to its packaging for sustainability reasons as part of the ‌iPhone 13‌ launch, with Belkin today announcing that its new lineup of screen protectors for the ‌iPhone 13‌ family will arrive in packaging made entirely of recycled plastic water bottles and forest certified paper.



In addition to the packaging change, which is part of a broader internal and external sustainability initiative at the company, Belkin says the Screen Protector Applicator kits made available to retail stores to assist with installation will also transition to more sustainable materials including kraft paper, plant-based plastic liners, and soy-based ink.

Belkin’s Anti-Glare Screen Protectors for all ‌iPhone 13‌ models are available from Apple for $19.95, while the UltraGlass Screen Protectors with double ion-exchange strengthened lithium aluminosilicate glass are priced at $39.95.

Apple to Require COVID Testing for Employees Starting Next Month, Still No Vaccine Mandate

Starting next month, Apple is ramping up COVID-19 testing requirements for employees. According to The Verge‘s Zoe Schiffer, unvaccinated employees will be required to get frequent COVID-19 tests, while vaccinated employees will receive infrequent tests if going into an office or store.



Unlike other tech companies, such as Google and Facebook, Apple has not mandated vaccines for its employees and still does not require workers to get vaccinated to remain at Apple. Prior to the upcoming testing mandate, testing was encouraged, but not required.

Apple earlier this month began asking employees to provide details on their vaccination status, and it has been pushing vaccines through an internal vaccination campaign.

Apple offers vouchers to get employees vaccinated through Walgreens along with on-site vaccinations in the San Francisco Bay Area and Austin. Paid time off is available for vaccine appointments, as is paid sick leave for those who experience side effects.

Many corporate employees are still working from home at this point and will not be returning to the office until January at the earliest, but Apple also has a large retail workforce.

The details on Apple’s testing plans came from today’s company-wide town hall meeting, where Cook also spoke on plans for a hybrid work model going forward. “We learned as a company what it means for everyone to come in everyday because we did that before,” he said. “We know what it’s like when hardly anyone comes in. We don’t really know about the middle range. We need to learn.”

Cook said that Apple is committed to learning and tweaking its plans going forward, and he said that Apple plans to give everyone an extra three days off next quarter. In the U.S., employees will receive this time off on Thanksgiving week.

Renewable AppleCare+ Coverage for Mac Now Available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the UK

Apple this week expanded the option to extend an expiring AppleCare+ plan to additional countries, including France, Italy, and Spain. In addition, Apple has also expanded the Mac coverage renewal option to all countries where extended ‌AppleCare‌+ coverage is offered: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.



Prior to now, extended ‌AppleCare‌+ coverage options for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch were limited to the U.S., UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, and Japan, and the Mac-specific option was only available in the United States. The changes were highlighted in an updated version of Apple’s ‌AppleCare‌+ support document.

In all eligible countries, if you paid upfront for an ‌AppleCare‌+ plan for ‌iPhone‌, ‌iPad‌, or Apple Watch, you may be eligible to purchase new coverage that renews monthly.

If you paid upfront for an ‌AppleCare‌+ plan for Mac, Apple may give you the option to purchase new coverage that renews on an annual basis.

Apple says that new coverage must be purchased within 30 days of when the original coverage ends, and customers can find out if they’re eligible for extended coverage by going to mysupport.apple.com and following the on-screen instructions. The new coverage plan will automatically renew until it is cancelled.

Except in places where local law requires it, Apple will not provide notifications that an ‌AppleCare‌+ plan is about to expire so customers must check themselves.

Apple also has a separate renewal plan for customers in China, who can pay annually for continued ‌AppleCare‌+ coverage once their original plans expire.

‌AppleCare‌+ provides device coverage for after the initial warranty period, plus it covers two incidents of accidental damage every 12 months, with customers paying a small deductible for repairs or replacements.

At Least One iPhone 14 Model Will Reportedly Still Lack 120Hz ProMotion Display

Apple is planning to use an LTPS OLED display for at least one of the four models planned for the iPhone 14 series next year, according to Korean website The Elec, meaning that at least one iPhone 14 model would still have a 60Hz display.



The report lines up with information previously shared by display industry consultant Ross Young, who accurately claimed that the new iPad mini would feature an 8.3-inch display.

The new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max unveiled this week feature ProMotion displays with a variable refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz, resulting in smoother appearing content when watching video, gaming, or scrolling text. The devices are able to offer this feature because they are equipped with lower-power LTPO OLED displays, whereas the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have LTPS OLED displays without support for ProMotion.

The lack of ProMotion on at least one iPhone 14 model wouldn’t be too surprising, as Apple may keep the feature limited to the Pro models next year to maintain differentiation with the standard iPhone 14 models. Rumors suggest Apple plans to launch four iPhone 14 models next year, including a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, with no iPhone 14 mini.

The report adds that LG Display is aiming to start supplying Apple with LTPO OLED displays in 2022, which would give Apple another supplier of ProMotion displays for iPhones beyond Samsung, which is currently its exclusive supplier.

In the past, The Elec accurately reported that Apple would launch a new iPad Pro with a LiDAR Scanner in March 2020.

Some Customers Have Experienced Issues Pre-Ordering the iPhone 13 With an Apple Card

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro pre-orders started today, and while many customers have successfully placed their pre-orders, some have experienced issues when attempting to complete their purchase with an Apple Card or Apple Pay.



Some customers have turned to Twitter to express their frustration with the pre-ordering process, sharing screenshots of errors that they received, such as “there was a problem with the card details you entered” or “something went wrong.” Apple’s system status page does not yet reflect any widespread issues with the Apple Card or Apple Pay, but it’s clear that quite a few customers have been impacted by the issues this morning.

In the U.S. and the U.K., some affected customers are trying to place their pre-order through the iPhone Upgrade Program, but this is not always the case.

There isn’t a clear-cut solution to the issues for now beyond switching to a different payment method, but for Apple Card holders, this could mean missing out on 3% Daily Cash. The pre-ordering issues have also resulted in some customers missing out on securing their preferred iPhone 13 configuration for launch day delivery on September 24, as delivery estimates have already started slipping into October for some models.

Citizens One not taking Apple Card was not on my Bingo card for this year’s iPhone cycle.

— Craig Hockenberry (@chockenberry) September 17, 2021

The funniest thing about Apple not accepting Apple Card for payment of the Apple iPhone, is that the receipt will no doubt say “you could have earned 3% back if you’d used Apple Card to pay for this” #iPhonePreOrder pic.twitter.com/CXsnlSnjF8

For anyone trying to order the iPhone 13 using an Apple Card, try switching to a muggle card, instead. Seems to have better luck. 🤷‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/bkBew7zHIf

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro pre-orders started today, and while many customers have successfully placed their pre-orders, some have experienced issues when attempting to complete their purchase with an Apple Card or Apple Pay.


Some customers have turned to Twitter to express their frustration with the pre-ordering process, sharing screenshots of errors that they received, such as "there was a problem with the card details you entered" or "something went wrong." Apple's system status page does not yet reflect any widespread issues with the Apple Card or Apple Pay, but it's clear that quite a few customers have been impacted by the issues this morning.

In the U.S. and the U.K., some affected customers are trying to place their pre-order through the iPhone Upgrade Program, but this is not always the case.

There isn't a clear-cut solution to the issues for now beyond switching to a different payment method, but for Apple Card holders, this could mean missing out on 3% Daily Cash. The pre-ordering issues have also resulted in some customers missing out on securing their preferred iPhone 13 configuration for launch day delivery on September 24, as delivery estimates have already started slipping into October for some models.
