For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with iMazing to offer MacRumors a chance to win an Apple Vision Pro headset. The giveaway celebrates the recent release of iMazing 3, and the winner will also receive an iMazing 3 license that covers five devices (including the Vision Pro).

iMazing 3 has been redesigned and re-engineered for from the ground up for both Macs and Windows PCs, for ease of use no matter which platform you're using. The software offers a refreshed interface and an updated user experience that builds on the core iMazing features that customers have come to love.

For those who are unfamiliar with iMazing, it is iPhone and iPad management software that serves as an alternative to iTunes on PCs or the Finder-based device management option that now exists on Macs. The iMazing team overhauled the interface and underlying tools in order to provide the quality and future capabilities that customers expect from the software.

iMazing offers quick, local backups with support for snapshots so you can browse through all of your backups to find exactly what you're looking for. With the backup option, you'll never lose a file or access to an app again.

File and media transfers to or from devices are available, so you can move music, photos, and more from your iPhone to your Mac and vice versa. iMessage, SMS messages, and WhatsApp messages can also all be exported. For business users, iMazing offers tools for managing and provisioning devices.

The iMazing 3 software has a new Discover section that is meant to help casual users better navigate their devices and perform simple actions quickly. There are quick access options for transferring files, making backups, browsing images, copying voicemails, and more.

There's also a new Tools section that has power features aimed at business users, such as managing apps, exporting select data, scanning for spyware, and transferring content to another device. iMazing on Mac works with iPhone, iPad, and the Vision Pro.

iMazing bills itself as the best possible iPhone management software, and the third-generation version has been redesigned for the future. iMazing plans to provide regular updates that will add new capabilities and improve existing options, and the updates will be offered at no cost to iMazing 3 license holders.

I hope folks that entered already did a demo in an Apple store so they know what they are winning. (I had to have the device re-calibrated multiple times during my demo to have it successfully track my eyes.)
With the iMazing licensing updates, each licenses is for the life of "the device." If I'm going to update my mini 6 this year, I'm going to have to wait on the rest of the new device announcements before attempting to use iMazing. Oh the mental hoops I'll jump through to "save" 40 USD on a device license.
But, you need an Apple dev account to buy the USB cable for the AVP or is iMazing able to manage the AVP wirelessly? 🧐 Guess I'll dig through their website for potential answers this weekend.

According to the iMazing 3 release notes, it works wirelessly.

Lol, this is one of the most expensive giveaways and yet few folks me included would rather pass than get the AVP.

if I accidentally win, can I have Apple Mac Pro Wheels instead? 😁

Free is always better. Vision Pro is a great piece of tech that’s just badly overpriced. Would love to have one for watching sports alone.

I do feel it is the future just not in this form

I love iMazing, but haven't updated to 3 yet due to the new licensing.

You either have to never change your device (warranty replacements count as a device change due to a serial number change) or pay annually for a subscription based on the number of devices.

I'm not sure what the best licensing scheme would be, but I'd be inclined to upgrade if there were something simpler. For instance, maybe a rolling perpetual licensing model where you could pay for a certain time period and if you decide not to renew you have perpetual access to that version, but not updates. Or the one time purchase options allowing you to deactivate an old device and activate a new one once or twice per year based for each device on the license (so a 5 device license would allow changing the attached serial number 5 or 10 times in a year).

The fact I'd have to worry about warranty replacements has been my #1 reason for not upgrading.

If it was dead it would not be being expanded to more counties. It's just haters wishful thinking...
This will go the same way as the iPhone mini in that according to Apple’s roadmap they will need to launch it in other countries because these things are planned in advance.
But it’s deader than a quick thing from dead land

The AVP haters are hilarious.

I've used iMazing for years and it's great. It gets VERY frequent updates, and they've never charged for them - I understand their need to drive more revenue.

But the new license is disastrous. Really unacceptable, so I'm looking for another product (and there are many, though I don't know if any are as good). I'm willing to pay a modest amount yearly for updates to deal with iOS changes. I'm not willing to rebuy for every device I have, or do support for.
