Dan Price Updated 17-12-2019

If you own Apple devices, there’s no shortage of sites that you need to add to your bookmark list. Whether you want how-to guides, troubleshooting tips, product reviews, news, or merely some chat with like-minded Apple fans, there’s something out there for everyone.


Here are the best sites for iPhone users and Mac enthusiasts.

1. MakeUseOf

We have sections dedicated to both macOS and iOS. Each section is packed with roundups, tips, instructional guides, and app lists.

Frankly, we don’t see why you’d need to go anywhere else!

2. MacRumors

Despite the name, MacRumors covers all aspects of the Apple ecosystem, including macOS, iOS, Apple’s various paid services, and its other non-computing devices (like Apple TV).


The site offers a healthy mix of news, rumors, how-to articles, and buying guides. There’s also a large community in the site’s forums.

3. Mac of All Trades

It’s no secret that Apple gear is expensive. A top-spec new Mac can set you back several thousand dollars. In many cases, it’s wiser to by refurbished equipment instead.

And that’s what Mac of All Trades specializes in. You can save up to 50 percent on refurbished laptops, desktops, iPads, iPhones, Apple Watches, and other accessories and parts.


4. Reddit

As you’d expect, Reddit has a bevy of Apple-themed subreddits. The largest Apple community is the main r/Apple subreddit. It has 1.1 million members and provides a mix of news, information, and tech support. Some other Apple subreddits worth checking out include:

Make sure you let us know your favorite Apple subreddits in the comments at the end.

5. Apple Support

If something goes wrong with your Apple device, the first place you should turn to for help is Apple Support. It has sections dedicated to all Apple’s devices, apps, and services, including iCloud, Apple Pay, Apple’s pro apps, and Apple ID.


Aside from the troubleshooting tips, Apple Support also has plenty of how-to articles. They’ll explain how to get your products working the way you want them to.

6. Cult of Mac

Cult of Mac is another Apple web site with a broad focus. You will find the usual selection of news articles, product reviews, and how-to guides. However, there’s a unique section about the business of app development, as well as a portal to sell your old Apple gear. You’ll also find a section dedicated to deals on Apple products.

Cult of Mac even produces its own podcast and magazine.

7. MacSurfer

macsurfer apple news site


MacSurfer is a news aggregator site that solely collates articles about Apple.

Because it pulls stories from dozens of different sources, you’ll never have any shortage of stuff to read. There are hundreds of new stories available every day. The stories are subdivided into smaller categories for easy navigation.

8. AppleWorld

The AppleWorld blog posts a steady stream of Apple news and rumors. There are also a few reviews and how-to guides, but that’s not the site’s only focus.

This site is also worth checking out if you’re looking for discounts on Apple devices. It frequently posts special offers and coupon codes.

9. The Mac Observer

mac observer apple website

The Mac Observer posts news, reviews, tutorials, editorials, and columns. You will also find podcasts and a deals page.

Oh, and make sure you check out the Apple Death Knell Counter. It logs a report every time a writer in the mainstream media has declared Apple to be “dead.” The counter is at 71 and rising!

10. iFixit

Of course, iFixit is focused on far more than Apple. It is one of the best tech-themed DIY sites on the web.

If you want to perform a DIY task on your own phone—like changing the screen or swapping the battery—this is the site to go to for a complete guide.

11. PowerPage

powerpage apple site

PowerPage is the place to go for Apple rumors; there’s very little concrete news. The stories on the site are all well-sourced. They typically focus on topics such as new product release dates, product design, new features, and app updates.

12. MacPrices

With so many sites offering discounts and deals on Apple products, how do you know whether you’re getting a bargain on the devices you’re about to buy?

MacPrices has the answer. Not only does it scan the web for the best prices on Apple’s laptops, desktops, iPads, iPhones, and other gear, but it also supplies free price trackers for each individual product.

13. iPhone Life

iphone life apple tips website

The iPhone Life site is entirely dedicated to iOS; you won’t find content about macOS or any of Apple’s other devices.

Most of the content on the site is focused on how-to tips, but there’s also a smattering of news and some reviews.

14. iPhone Photography School

As smartphone cameras become increasingly more powerful, many users are churning out professional-grade photography with their devices.

iPhone Photography School showcases some of the best images taken on iPhones. You’ll also find iPhone photography tutorials. They explain how to take the best shots and how to edit your pictures on your Mac.

15. The Loop

the loop apple analysis site

The Loop is an Apple blog run by just two writers, but it still manages to publish an impressive amount of new content.

It offers news, commentary, opinion, and insight. One of the writers, Jim Dalrymple, also has his own podcast. It’s called The Dalrymple Report and is well worth a listen if you’re an Apple fan.

16. MacSales

If you want to buy Apple upgrade products and services, check out MacSales. It sells DIY kits, internal components, memory modules, refurbished Macs, and much more.

There are even upgrade videos to help you with the installation. Just be aware that attempting your own DIY on your Mac will void your warranty.

17. 9to5Mac

9to5mac apple site

A part of a network of sites including 9to5Google and 9to5Toys, 9to5Mac focuses its efforts on all things Apple. In addition to Mac and iOS coverage, the blog pays close attention to the business end of things, including stock prices, corporate strategy, and personnel.

18. Macworld

MacWorld started life in 1984 as a print magazine. The publication was the biggest Mac-focused magazine in North America until 2014 when parent company IDG announced that the print version was being axed, which meant most staff were to be laid off.

Despite this, Macworld continues to this day as an oft-updated resource for all things Apple. It’s the same magazine-like content (reviews, news, how-tos) in an online format.

19. iDownloadBlog

idownload apple blog

iDownloadBlog is an Apple blog with a focus on iOS, which started life in 2008. iDB is one of the few major Apple blogs that dedicates a sizeable chunk of their coverage to jailbreaking, the slightly dubious act of liberating your mobile device from Apple’s restrictions.

20. AppleInsider

AppleInsider has been up and running since 1997, which makes it one of the oldest outlets on this list. With a focus on news, leaks, and rumors, AppleInsider targets the same news-hungry demographic as MacRumors.

21. MacTech

mactech apple website

MacTech is primarily a news aggregator. Describing itself as “the journal of Apple technology,” the website rounds up the latest news, press releases, reviews, and updates from across the Apple world in one tidy dashboard.

The site also produces original content, including gear reviews and quick looks at new accessories.

22. AppAdvice

With a strong focus on software, AppAdvice is a great place to find new apps and games, as well as follow the latest news.

Coverage is skewed more towards iOS apps and software, but Mac users are catered for as well. You’ll also find news about freebies and deals, rumor roundups, and coverage of related accessories and gadgets.

23. Stack Exchange

stack exchange apple site

Just like Apple Support Communities, Stack Exchange is a platform for asking questions and sharing answers. The service began life as Stack Overflow, a question and answer website for common programming queries. It has since expanded to cover a broad range of topics.

Due to the nature of the community, Stack Exchange is a good place to ask technical questions.

24. OSXDaily

Despite the outdated name (OSX has been dropped in favor of macOS), OSXDaily still produces relevant content for both Mac and iOS users. There’s a specific focus on practical tips, quick fixes, and feature overviews, which makes this a great place to learn something new.

25. AppShopper

appshopper apple apps site

AppShopper is the best place to find app deals on both the iOS App Store and Mac App Store. The website allows you to filter by a range of criteria so that you can find all the deals relevant to you. You can also choose whether to view all relevant apps or just filter by popularity to quickly find the best.

26. Fnd

It’s a simple search engine that allows you to search for apps, movies, music, TV, books, Mac software, and even Podcasts.

27. AppRecs

Think you can spot a bad review? It turns out the App Store is full of them, and one developer by the name of Mark Edmond has figured out how to spot them.

AppRecs trawls the App Store for reviews, looking for patterns that suggest a review has been falsified. It then lists the most and least trustworthy apps in easy to browse charts for your perusal.

28. iMore

iMore is all about getting more out of your Apple devices. There’s a mixture of topical coverage and out-right guides to all things iOS, including the latest games, new features, and useful tips. There’s some Mac coverage, but the primary focus is on Apple’s mobile devices.

    Unfortunately MacSurfer was suspended after a failed subscription model was attempted. Too bad, it was one site that I checked daily. It had been around since the mid 90's too.

The Mac-Forums staff are very involved with enforcing the website Community Guidelines. Activities such as swearing, bullying, shaming, etc are not tolerated...a very "Disney-Friendly" environment.

      I hope new users who read this post won't confuse your generic Apple Support user name and phone number listing with the official Apple company. Most of us are fully aware of these types of deceptive tactics, but if I can save just one poor non-technical soul, it's worth the price of my post. Kinda reminds me of the official letters I get in the post telling me my automobile's warranty has expired.

    The Alternative To A Mac Upgrade
    When you are using a Mac sometimes you can notice that over time your computer will be slower with a bit more lag than you are used to and that's because sometimes information gets truly clogged up and starts overlapping and really destroying the functions that should perform normally. You do not need to upgrade your Mac anymore not with Detox your Mac. What this program does is it truly helps to clean out everything in your Mac and make it function better and faster than it has in a long time. Sometimes even restoring the factory quickly you had when you bought the computer to begin with. When you use a computer it becomes absolutely filled up with useless files and copies of files which you thought you might have gotten rid of but the fact of the matter is that everything is stored on a computer until you can really get in there and clean it with a product such as Detox my Mac simply because it gets down deep into the computer to places that a normal Mac user wouldn't even go to look for things. Understanding full well that Mac computer are not cheap means that instead of getting an even more expensive upgrade you can actually use this product to help clean out everything that need to be cleaned out and get your computer up and running at peak performance.
    Within just a few seconds after starting the program you can have it go through hundreds of thousands of files getting rid of everything that is useless. Having a hard drive full of useless information really does make things so much harder on the computer itself and can be a true frustration to someone who really needs to just get the job done on the computer but instead they are having to wait longer and longer periods of time for loads and downloads or even for the initial startup of the computer before they can get anything done. That's the great thing about Detox my Mac is that it takes your computer and goes through file by file and everything that is useless it will get rid of it and help restore the Mac back to a point where you can actually get what you need to get done without issues or waiting or even the dreaded crashing. It's not the standard files it goes through it also goes through the logs which can totally slow down the whole function of the computer even though they aren't needed except for in development states that doesn't seem to matter, this program will truly get in there and with an intelligent nature it will get rid of all the log files. It will also go through the language files and get rid of all the unused language files as well. This is very important because it can take a huge portion of your hard drive just storing unused languages and this gets rid of all of it.
