For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with MyMe Unity to give MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's Unity case systems with a Unity Case for your iPhone, a Cradle to use as an accompanying stand, and a matching cable for charging.

The Unity Case offers dual-layer protection with an inner silicone case and an outer shell, for superior impact resistance. It comes in a range of stylish two-tone color options, has a raised bezel for screen and camera protection, and it ships with a screen protector for the display for complete device safety.


A strong magnet is built into the center of the Unity Case's outer shell, allowing it to attach to metal surfaces like a refrigerator. It ships with two Metal Mounting Plates that can be placed anywhere in your house or car to mount your phone for hands-free access.

The Unity Case is priced at $25 and is available for the iPhone 5 and later, and the cases for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus also work with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It's not clear, though, if these interfere with wireless charging.


In addition to attaching to anything metal, the Unity Case pairs with the Unity Smart Cradle, which attaches to the case with a metal ball joint that allows the case to be positioned in any orientation and at several angles.

The Cradle, priced at $12-$24, comes in a range of colors and styles to match the cases and it can be placed on flat surfaces or surfaces like car windshields and mirrors. There are also Cradle and Unity Case bundles available for $35, a discounted bundle price.


MyMe Unity also offers a $20 5-ft tangle-free magnetic Lightning cable that goes along with the whole Unity setup. It has a magnet at the top to allow it to attach to the cradle when not in use, keeping it within reach at all times.


The whole Case, Cradle, and Cable setup costs about $60, making it more affordable than some standalone case and mount options. We have 10 Case, Cradle, and Cable bundles to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

The magnet might be small enough here to allow wireless charging, but we'll have to wait and find out. Its a very cool case setup.

Looking at my current car mount which requires sticking a steel plate to the back of your phone (or the inside of my phone case) is going to cause alot of trouble for folks with the 8 and expecting wireless charging to work though.

I know! I'm hoping the new iPhones will be able to stick to the magnetic mounts with the magnets that are in the phone, without using the metal plate. That metal plate will definitely interfere with inductive charging. :rolleyes:

There are metal coils that produce an electromagnetic field for inductive charging. They may not be magnetized until placed on a charging platform, but, hopefully the coil will be enough to stick to a magnetic mount.

First of all, I would like to thank MacRumors and MyMe Unity for the case and stand I won in the MacRumors contest.

The case cutouts fit the iPhone speaker, earphone jack and mic, lightning connector and mute button very well. The on off button and volume buttons also fit very well. The camera bump is well protected. The case is raised on the face and keeps the front from making contact when laid face down on a flat surface. The plastic outer shell and inner silicone liner appear to be good drop and bump protection. The magnet does add some weight, but nothing too heavy. The magnet doesn’t appear to affect the compass or optical image stabilization. The compass did ask for a calibration. The case slides in and out of my pockets easily, and doesn’t attract lint.

The stand has a suction base and the base also has a “tacky” feel. When placed on a nightstand the base holds the iPhone steady without using the suction feature, and doesn’t leave a mark on the wood. On my vehicle windshield, the stand stuck to the windshield and does a great job staying there, even on bumpy roads. Also, the stand stuck to my dashboard great and didn’t leave a mark.

I had been looking for a tripod for my phone, but didn’t care for a ratchet type or one that mounted in the lightning connector. The MyMe Unity stand allows easy, smooth adjustment and holds the phone steady for time lapse or long exposure photography.

So far I have been extremely happy with the MyMe Unity case and stand.
