Now more than ever, readers demand accountability, transparency, equity, honesty, and integrity from the media. A new set of standards are required for our modern digital world. With that in mind, iPhoneArena 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.
iPhoneArena is the independent guide to Apple products.
Editorial coverage is determined solely by the editorial staff for the benefit of our audience.
Since we cover the full Apple Product realm, we routinely test, evaluate, and report on those products, and we disclose our relationship in those stories.
Editorial reviews and conclusions are created without any personal, advertising, marketing, or other business considerations.
Our editorial team does not make paid endorsements, nor do we produce paid content.
Editorial staffers cannot accept any compensation or gifts of significant value from vendors. Nor may they own stock in companies within our coverage area.
We strive to create honest, objective editorial reviews.
There are no paid reviews on our website, and we do not accept unsolicited content submissions.
Fabrication of any extent is unacceptable. 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 included on the site, and our writers produce 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.
Corrections, Updates, and Feedback
Minor errors are a fact of life; iPhoneArena deals with them promptly and transparently. When necessary, we post clear updates to our articles indicating the date a change was made and what specifically was corrected.
Readers who believe they have identified an error or mistake in our reporting are encouraged to contact the news desk directly via firstname.lastname@example.org. The editorial team will examine the question fairly, with an open mind, and update as necessary.
If we need to retract a story entirely, we do so transparently as well. We do not un-publish or “disappear” problem copy.
