Addicted to Apple? The Top 30 Apple News, Rumor and Opinion Websites of 2012

Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

As an IT Director who loves Macs, I’m personally always on a mission to find the best source of information on Apple. Of course Apple’s Hot News is straight from the source, but sometimes a person craves “unofficial” information as well. After doing a lot of research, I compiled this list of the top 30 Apple news, rumor and opinion sites, but you’ll probably notice that a few of the “big guys” are ranked a bit lower than you might expect. As you may or may not know, I’m a designer by trade and if a site doesn’t look nice I don’t want to spend much time reading it’s content… Ironically enough, some of the biggest sites that cover Apple don’t seem to care much about design even though Apple (and the late Steve Jobs) is all about the intersection of technology and liberal arts. What would Jony Ive have to say? So, in order for a site to crack my top 10, it needed to have not only excellent content quality and quantity, but also a great design. I’m glad I looked into this topic because I discovered a few new sites which I know love and will follow regularly including Apple Reviews and World of Apple among others. All in all, this is a great resource for Apple fans of all colors (consumers, professionals, developers and employees).
