Meet the iMore team
Gerald Lynch is the Editor-in-Chief of iMore, keeping careful watch over the site's editorial output and commercial campaigns, ensuring iMore delivers the in-depth, accurate and timely Apple content its readership deservedly expects. You'll never see him without his iPad Pro, and he loves gaming sessions with his Game Center buddies via Apple Arcade on his iPhone 13 Pro, but don't expect him to play with you at home unless your Apple TV is hooked up to a 4K HDR screen and a 7.1 surround system.
Living in London in the UK, Gerald was previously Editor of Gizmodo UK, and Executive Editor of TechRadar, and has covered international trade shows including Apple's WWDC, MWC, CES and IFA. If it has an acronym and an app, he's probably been there, on the front lines reporting on the latest tech innovations.
Gerald is also a regularly contributing tech pundit for BBC Radio and in the past has written for various other print and online publications, including T3 magazine, GamesRadar, Space.com, Real Homes, MacFormat, music bible DIY, Tech Digest, TopTenReviews, Mirror.co.uk, Brandish, Kotaku, Shiny Shiny and Lifehacker. Gerald also holds a Guinness world record on Tetris.
He is also the author of 'Get Technology: Upgrade Your Future', published by Aurum Press. Gerald is a big reader, studying English Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London, plays guitar, and knows his way around a virtual reality headset. Gerald dreams of the day when he can pop on an Apple VR headset and meet Lawnmower Man-era Pierce Brosnan. Sadly, Pierce doesn't share the dream.
Christine Romero-Chan is the Senior Editor at iMore. As Senior Editor, she helps with content planning on the site and making sure that articles look good before going live. In addition to that, Christine is always writing in-depth how-to guides, editorials, rounding up the best apps and games on iOS and Mac, reviewing products, and more.
Her specialty area is the iPhone, as that’s all she’s been using ever since receiving the original iPhone in 2008 as a birthday present, before dropping it on cement and shattering the screen. Thankfully, the iPhone 3G was coming out at the time, and thus began her annual tradition of buying a new iPhone, so she’s had them all and knows the ins and outs like the back of her hand. Surprisingly enough, the iPhone was also her very first Apple product — ever since the iPhone, she has also bought several different iterations of iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac over the years as well. With that in mind, Christine not only expertly covers iPhone, but she contributes with iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac coverage when needed too.
Christine has been covering and writing about Apple for over the past decade after graduating from California State University Long Beach with a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications. Her previous work included AppAdvice, MacLife, MakeUseOf, and Lifehacker. Her previous work at these sites involved iOS app and game reviews, app roundups, how-to guides, and more.
As a Southern California based journalist, Christine often enjoys going to Disneyland in Anaheim, California as a passholder, because she is obsessed with all things Disney, especially Star Wars. If she isn’t writing, you can probably find her over at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, just living her best life. Christine is also a big fan of (iced) coffee, food in general (especially sushi), mechanical keyboards, photography, animated series and films, The Beatles, and spending as much time with her new daughter as possible.
Stephen Warwick has written about Apple for five years, three at iMore and before then at Today’s iPhone, part of the Phonedog group (now Slashdot TV). He covers all of iMore's latest breaking news regarding all of Apple's products and services, both hardware and software. This means Stephen is well versed in every area of Apple’s business operation. This includes its best products such as the iPad, iPhone, Mac, AirPods, and Apple Watch. However, it also extends to apps and services, as well as the supply chain, patents and litigation, competition, politics and lobbying, the environment, and more.
Stephen has interviewed industry experts in a range of fields including finance, litigation, security, and more. He also specializes in curating and reviewing audio hardware and has experience beyond journalism in sound engineering, production, and design.
Stephen also has a keen interest in gaming on both console and PC. Before becoming a writer Stephen studied Ancient History at University and also worked at Apple for more than two years. Stephen is also a host on the iMore show, a weekly podcast recorded live that discusses the latest in breaking Apple news, as well as featuring fun trivia about all things Apple.
Bryan M. Wolfe has written about technology for over a decade on various websites, including TechRadar, AppAdvice, and many more. Before this, he worked in the technology field across different industries, including healthcare and education. He’s currently iMore’s lead on all things Mac and macOS, although he also loves covering iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Additionally, if there’s a pair of headphones that need to be reviewed, he’s the first to raise his hand.
Bryan’s a Penn State graduate and bleeds blue and white. He enjoys watching his favorite sports teams (We Are…), traveling, and driving around his teenage daughter to her latest stage show, audition, or school event in his spare time. He also keeps busy walking his black and white cocker spaniel, Izzy, and trying new coffees and liquid grapes. When he really wants to relax, he’s enjoying Westworld, Apple TV Plus breakout hit Severance, and countless other shows. He also likes movies but hasn’t visited a theater since the Pandemic started.
Have a question about tech? You can find Bryan on Twitter and LinkedIn; his responses are typically prompt. He also responds to email sent to bryan dot wolfe at appadvice dot com.
Luke Filipowicz has been writing for iMore for just shy of a decade and has seen his way through an evolution of the website's coverage every step of the way. Luke started primarily as a how-to specialist ensuring that everyone knows how to use their Apple devices to their fullest potential. Today, Luke helps iMore keep on top of everything Apple Watch-related and writes about iPad, iPhone, Mac, and more. He's especially passionate about low-cost technology, always trying to find the best product for the lowest price. He believes that technologies like cell phones have become necessary in the modern world, and keeping technology affordable and accessible will be an integral part of the future.
On top of writing, Luke also lends his voice to host the iMore Show — a weekly podcast focused on Apple news, rumors, and more. Whether it's talking about the latest Apple products, interviewing iOS developers, and diving into his favorite Apple TV+ shows, the iMore Show has been running for over 800 episodes, and it's not slowing down.
Luke's love of technology isn't just limited to Apple; you will often find him tinkering with cameras, microphones, and lights in his off time. Photography and video editing are two passions left over from his college days, where he got his Creative Communications Diploma from Red River College Polytechnic in 2015.
As the Buying Guides and Deals Writer for iMore, Tammy puts over a decade of experience in finding the best prices of Apple products to work helping you save money on the equipment that you want. She keeps on top of the best prices on Apple devices around the web, letting you know the best times to buy. If you want to know the best thing to buy for a particular use case, Tammy’s your girl - she puts together the buying guides that tell you a little more about which products you should look at.

She’s turned her parent’s spare room into a home cinema, replete with large TV that dominates a wall and Dolby Atmos surround system. You’ll be pleased to know that it’s all second-hand - even outside of iMore, Tammy loves a deal.
When not working, Tammy will likely be found doing more writing. With a Masters in Screenwriting from the University of the West of England, she fills most of her spare time writing feature-length and TV episode screenplays, interspersed with a hefty dosage of short stories, many of which will never see the light of day. Outside computer screens, she splits her time between rearranging a burgeoning action figure collection or racing a digital car around a virtual track. Tammy would like to replicate the shared cockpit scene from Top Gun, only with Lewis Hamilton in an F1 car. Lewis is yet to reply to her emails.

Karen is a contributor to iMore.com as a writer, social media manager, and co-host of the iMore Show. She’s been writing about Apple since 2010 with a year-long break to work at an Apple Store as a product specialist.

Karen writes a lot of accessory roundups and reviews for iMore, plus occasional how-tos and editorials.

She works as a movie extra whenever possible and has done eight films so far, including Cherry on Apple TV+.

Despite being considered a "heavy" user, he has always preferred the consumer-focused products like the MacBook Air, iPad mini, and iPhone 13 mini. He will fight to the death to keep a mini iPhone in the lineup.
In his free time, Joe enjoys playing video games with friends on Xbox, going to the movies., photography, working out, and running. Over the pandemic, he has gotten heavily into the outdoors including hiking, camping, and backpacking.
Oliver has written about Apple and the wider technology business for more than a decade with bylines on How-To Geek, PC Mag, iDownloadBlog, and many more. He has also been published in print for Macworld, including cover stories. At iMore, Oliver is involved in daily news coverage and, not being short of opinions, has been known to 'explain' those thoughts in more detail, too.
Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall.
Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
Passionate about apps and the developer ecosystem, Oliver is always keen to try out the hottest new things to hit the App Store — and some that haven't made it there yet, too.
Nicolette began writing as a contributor for iMore in 2019. She’s been an avid Apple fan since she got the very first iPhone in 2007 and switched from a PC to MacBook in 2008 after inadvertently dousing her laptop with a hefty dose of water.

Jaclyn Kilani is a content writer at iMore. She's a longtime Apple addict with a flair for creating (written works, design, photos; you name it!) on her devices. Jaclyn has also worked in the marketing sector for over 16 years, dabbling in a bit of everything from writing to graphic design and digital marketing. In her heart of hearts, however, she is a born writer and an avid reader who adores everything about the written word. Someday she may even churn out a book or two.
Throughout her career, Jaclyn has also developed something of an addiction to all things Apple. Her professional and personal life is enhanced by an ever-growing collection of iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Apple Watches, and even AirTags. Luckily, this expensive habit is of great use to her work at iMore, where she writes with authority on Apple products and the accessories that go with them.
Apart from work life, Jaclyn lives with her husband and two children in the tropics of Colombia, South America. They enjoy traveling, exploring the local community, and spending time in nature observing wildlife. Jaclyn’s children would also like to be Apple addicts, but they can’t afford it, so they collect rocks and wild animals instead. You can read more about Jaclyn’s expat lifestyle on MorningPapaya.com.

After a short stint creating and launching interactive iPad gaming magazine iGamer (RIP), he moved into online journalism as editor of edge-online.com (also RIP), Edge magazine’s online presence.
In 2014, Neil moved into tech as Apple’s App Store games editor, based in London.

Nathan Alderman is an iMore contributor. He’s been using Apple computers since his first Apple IIe in 1985, and writing professionally about Apple products and their software since 2005.
A graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, he’s worked full-time as an editor, writing coach, fact-checker, and writer for more than two decades.

He spends his rapidly dwindling spare time writing fiction for fun, learning Spanish on his phone, volunteering for democracy as a canvasser, researcher, and writer, and talking about movies, Marvel, Muppets, and more on assorted podcasts on The Incomparable Network. Whether or not he’s doing any of those things at the moment, Nathan adores his wife and wrangles his alarmingly large children from the home they share in bucolic central Virginia.
Nadine Dornieden is a freelance writer from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with words at iMore, Android Central, IGN, and PBS's Independent Lens.
Though her primary focus is Nintendo, she enjoys looking at the video game industry as a whole, including iPhone and iPad gaming. Some of her favorite topics to discuss in the realm of video games are representation, accessibility, and the relationships between video game corporations and consumers. Her favorite franchises are Animal Crossing, Pokémon, and Monster Hunter, though she's always ready to curl up with a good visual novel or platformer on her Nintendo Switch.
She's always happy to chat about video games on Twitter at @stopthenadness.
Alex Huebner got her start in writing after graduating from Iowa State University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s in Advertising and a focus on copywriting. After a few years in marketing roles, she began to shift to journalism and has been working with iMore as a Freelance Gaming Writer for three years. Android Central and Windows Central also house a few of her articles.
She regularly covers Nintendo Switch games from Pokémon, Zelda, and Sonic to a few indie pieces. You’ll also see her talk about accessories to improve your gaming experience and keep your console safe. As a parent, she enjoys finding iOS game apps that are fun, safe, and educational for children and helping other parents think of what to consider as their little ones begin to show interest in technology, as well as some games anyone could enjoy. In addition to the Nintendo Switch, you may also find her playing on the PlayStation, PC, and a variety of saved old consoles.
Alex often has a controller in hand but can also be found playing with her toddler, husband, and dogs, exploring a new area outdoors, crocheting, reading a book (or comic book), cosplaying, or playing with makeup. Since she grew up with video games she has many favorite titles, however, a few of her most recent favorite games include the Zelda franchise, Little Nightmares, and Animal Crossing.
Stephanie Barnes is a contributor at iMore. She fell in love with technology after building her first PC as a little girl. She later followed that passion to become a front-end/iOS engineer before switching to writing full-time. Stephanie's writing on technology, health and wellness, movies, television, and much more can be found all over the internet, including at HuffPost, HelloGiggles, PopSci, MindBodyGreen, and Business Insider.
At iMore, she covers everything from breaking news to product roundups with the latest and greatest devices, apps, and accessories on the market. Stephanie also writes the occasional how-to guide to help readers get the most out of Apple's devices and services. But while Stephanie is firmly planted in Apple’s ecosystem and has probably owned every iPhone created, she isn’t too drunk on the Apple juice to spot the malarkey.
When she isn't writing, Stephanie can be found reading a good book, baking, obsessing over creating the perfect desk setup, or literally anything that'll help her avoid going outside.
