MacRumors like all the other case makers is making cases based on what they THINK the next iPhone design is. It's all a guess. But even if MR gets it wrong it's still nice of them to have this competition. So thank you.

Same deal with the iPhone keynote date. MacRumors say they expected when really it's when they THINK and HOPE the date is. Nothing wrong with this. Just we don't want people thinking the date has been confirmed by Apple. it has NOT. It's just a plausible date based on the rumours so far.

Still after all that this is a nice thing MacRumours has done. And despite who wins these cases (ie don't enter expecting to win, just enter because MR is cool and if you win that's just a nice bonus). Thanks MR, is real nice of you.

US only makes sense, but rules me out.

Good idea none the less!

I will say the hand in this competition advert is clean and not disgustingly feral like all of the part leaks.

Brave for case manufactures

For all we know iPhone 6 could turn out pear shaped...

I think MacRumor's just realised that their batch-ordered cases won't be fitting the new iPhone 6.

So many people don't know how to read. The only thing MR did was have a logo stamped on the cases. Doubt they had anything to do with case production.

LOL. Rather than have the MR web address, why not include the users *actual* MR password on there. Now that would be unique!!!!!

These will be more fun if they don't fit than if they do. I never use a case (and I'd certainly never use these cases - too ugly) but this will be especially fun to have as decoration in my cubical at work if it doesn't fit an actual iPhone 6.

What the…..

hell is wrong with you people? Why do you all have to be so negative? If you don't like the case, don't enter. If you think it's ugly, don't enter. If you think it won't fit anyway, don't enter. If you aren't planning on getting a 4.7, don't freaking enter! Need I go on?

Didn't you mother's teach you if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all? Why do you have to take something nice and **** all over it? If it's not for you, move on.

Yes, I've been reading MacRumors for a long time but signed today so I could finally get it off my chest. You sound like a bunch of spoiled bratty children. Grow up.

By the Way, Thanks for the offering MacRumors.

Fun! It would be cool to have something with a MacRumors logo on it! Been visiting this site for almost exactly 10 years. This is one of my most visited sites on the net!

My only question: Who's hand is in the picture?

You know how when your neighbor puts pink flamingos on the lawn or parks a purple RV out front, it devalues all the other houses in the neighborhood?

A good way to test size

Well, it would be a good way to test the expected size, absent of a paper model.

Count me in!

Those cases should come with a phone in them, otherwise this gift is too cheap to compromise my email to another dreaded corporate monthly newsletter.

Probably worth... nothing.

Oh and how can they give away a case for a product that hasn't even been unveiled yet?
