How to send feedback to Apple

Despite turning off comments on all its YouTube videos, Apple is open to feedback. 😛

If you use the beta version of iOS, iPadOS, or macOS, a Feedback app comes along with it. You can use it to inform them about bugs, etc.

For regular users, just head over to Apple’s Feedback page and have your say. Most likely, you won’t get a reply from Apple, but they do claim to read all feedbacks.

This is how you can contact Apple Support to get your problems solved. I hope this article helped you.
