MacXDVD Airs iPhone 10th Anniversary Celebration with Giveaway and Prize

No Comments

Chengdu, China – This week marks iPhone’s 10-year birthday. On the heel of the epic milestone, MacXDVD cheerfully puts the unheard-of iPhone 10th anniversary event in the limelight. It’s a once-in-a-decade feast, from which unlimited copies of MacX Video Converter Pro with fairly fast video converting function will be gifted for free on condition of joining an iPhone survey. At the same time, 10,000 free copies of the tiptop MacX MediaTrans are given away unconditionally so that iPhone users will make a bee-line to safe data backup.

The celebrating activity will last for half a month and end on July 20. Additional and detailed information about the iPhone 10th anniversary event is available at MacXDVD official iPhone 10th anniversary giveaway page.

It has been 10 years since Steve Jobs unveiled the first Jesus iPhone that completely transformed the smartphone landscape. As of now, totally 15 models have been released and more than 1 billon iPhones have been sold worldwide since 2007. Strikingly, iPhone has revolutionized Apple’s business to a great extent, accounting for 63% of sales.

These milestones are testaments to Apple’s commitment to unremitting innovation. “At the time when iPhone turns 10, rather than focusing on nostalgia and bragging the glory achievement, we just want to commemorate the pivotal 10-year mark in the form of survey contest and giveaway so that Apple fans are on a roll to win gifts.” said Jack, CEO of MacXDVD Software.

Below are the two promotions to celebrate the epic milestone:

1. An iPhone Survey Contest:
In light of the 10th anniversary for Apple iPhone, MacXDVD launches the online survey contest titled “Which is the most classic iPhone for you?” While there, all participants will get a free copy of MacX Video Converter Pro as long as they join the quick survey.

Excitingly, MacXDVD prepares 3 iTunes Gift Cards ($50, $25, $15) and makes it really easy to win! Just share the iPhone 10th anniversary event on Facebook and 3 lucky winners will be picked up, depending on the number of Facebook Likes. The Contest result will be announced on July 20, 2017.

2. Time-Limited Giveaway of MacX MediaTrans:
The iPhone 8 is the symbol of the 10th anniversary of Apple smartphones. It’s believed the tech colossus raises the bar higher for this gadget. “Media sites like CNET and MacWorld believe in a dramatic redesign and dyed-in-the-wool upgrade for it, say edge-to-edge OLED display, wireless charging, homeless button, iris scanning, to name a few,” added Jack, “but we believe in a must-do data backup mechanism before you upgrade to iPhone 8.”

Resultantly, MacXDVD prepares 10,000 MacX MediaTrans license codes for giveaway, wishing Apple users won’t go anymore awry when they make the big switch and make a safe data backup and transferring. The free gift gives customers full control over photos, music, TV shows, movies, 4k videos, ringtones, ebooks, and everything entertaining including iTunes items. With full support of all models of iPhone (7), iPad (Pro) and iPod touch, it allows to manage, transfer and backup all iPhone contents, with no worry about iPhone space woes or data loss.

Price and Availability
To get free copy of the iPhone manager, please visit MacXDVD Giveaway Page. From now on, unlimited number of MacX Video Converter Pro, normally priced at $45.95, will be 100% free before July 20, 2017.

* Optimize dozens of InDesign documents
* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images to CMYK
* Resave JPEG files as TIFF
* Run a Photoshop action on each image.
