What are user tips?

User tips are helpful tips and tricks created by our community members to help others with their Apple products. They are created and maintained collaboratively by the community.

 

How do I create a user tip?

User tips are a privilege that is provided when a user reaches Level 5. Learn about the Apple Support Communities reputation system, here.

 

To create a User Tip, click New, User Tip and select the community you want to create the new user tip in.
