How to write User Tips

Share your valuable knowledge about Apple products with the community by creating User Tips.

User Tips are informative tips and tricks created and maintained by community members to help others with their Apple products. When you get to Level 5 in the community, you can write new User Tips. If you’ve repeated the same bit of information in various replies to other members’ questions, it might be good content for a User Tip.

Community members can comment on the User Tips that you write. And you’ll receive 10 points the first time someone likes your User Tip.
