Now more than ever, audiences demand accountability, transparency, equity, honesty, and integrity from the media. A new set of standards are required for our modern digital world. To that end, iPhoneGeeks writers and editors live by a strict code of ethics, with a single goal: to provide the highest caliber of journalism, with true transparency and accountability, and a broad array of voices and perspectives to truly reflect the diverse digital world we inhabit today.
What we do?
We’re Apple aficionados on a mission to teach the world how to use and understand Apple devices. iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, app, software, websites, services—if it can make your life better, we’ll show you all the tips, tricks, and techniques you need to know to get the most out of what you have.
Our staff is constantly scouring the Internet for the latest Apple news, sharing tips, tricks, tutorials, and troubleshooting guides, reviewing devices, apps, and games, and keeping track of custom ROMs and hacks.
Why trust us?
We take great pride in the quality of our content. While we cover hundreds of different topics, they all have one thing in common: readers looking for tech information they can trust. Our writers create high-quality, original, accurate, expert content that is free of ethical concerns, conflicts, or misinformation.
We strive for 100% accurate headlines and apply a rigorous vetting process to every news article on the site. Rumors and insider reports are identified accordingly to ensure distinction between confirmed information and industry buzz that is of interest to our readers.
Before any article is written, we ensure the information is new and accurate. We verify sources and always dig down to the original source (and reference material if applicable) before the writing process begins. Even if other outlets report an unsubstantiated piece of news as official confirmation, we require 100% confirmation to claim it’s actually confirmation. We do not post clickbait. Our headlines might be bold – but we don’t throw out broad statements just to sound bold. It has to be accurate and fact-checked. iPhoneGeeks articles don’t just report the news, we provide industry-leading context that explains why that news is important to you.
iPhoneGeeks team consists of writers from diverse backgrounds in all facets of the tech industry brought together by a passion for all things Apple and a goal of providing the best, as well as most engaging, content possible for visitors to our site.
Our writers and editors are Apple veterans – and make sure every new article has the latest info, the most accurate info, and all relevant details. When we are the original source, we follow basic journalism principles.
iPhoneGeeks’ team of experienced fact checkers provides a critical layer of review to ensure content integrity. This army of experts is carefully selected and vetted for journalistic and subject matter expertise. They are tasked with researching all statements of fact to ensure that news and technical information articles are accurate and comprehensive and statistics are properly sourced and up to date.
If we are meaningfully correcting a news article, whether part of our fact checking process or not, we simultaneously publish a correction at the bottom of the article that explains details of the change.
Fabrication of any extent is not allowed. It violates the trust of our audience. Plagiarism occurs when a portion of text is cut and pasted from another article, without citing where the text originally came from. It is not acceptable to merely make minor modifications to another publication’s wording or to duplicate its story structure. We will make every effort to ensure that our editorial staff gathers and verifies every piece of information published on the site, and our writers create stories with original phrasing and structure and with additional information and context. Where we cannot verify someone else’s reporting, we will clearly link back to the original source.
Advertising and Sponsored Content
Advertising and sponsored content are an integral part of iPhoneGeeks. A sponsored post is a great way to introduce your app, software or service to our audience and get visibility for your product. Sometimes, a brand will underwrite existing or ongoing editorial coverage, but they cannot influence the content itself or interfere with its editorial integrity, which should represent the needs of our audience. Only existing planned editorial coverage is available to be sponsored. To schedule a sponsorship or for additional information, please iemail us.
All of our content is professionally edited before publishing to ensure compliance with our strict standards. Our experienced editors check for readability, formatting, spelling and grammar, photo and screenshot quality, inclusive language and imagery, and much more.
We require article submissions as Microsoft Word documents. Please submit your document in as “plain text” as possible. Do not submit HTML, PDFs or otherwise. Formatting exceptions include bold text, hyperlinks, and text underlines.
Taste and Tone:
In tech culture, opinions can be controversial and stubborn. Therefore we must weigh content as possibly offensive or biased. While we focus on Apple, we admire Apple’s competition and provide unbiased information. Your writing voice must be unbiased and factual to coincide with our philosophy. Absolutely no articles with profanity will be considered for publication.
