iDownloadBlog.com (iDB) was founded in May 2008 as a weblog focused on delivering Apple news, reviews, editorials, jailbreak information, as well as guides and tutorials about the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Apple Watch, and just about everything Apple. While the main focus is Apple, iDB sometimes covers major industry-related events and companies that play in the same space as Apple’s, including, Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc… The site is updated multiple times daily by several editors and writers working from around the world.
The iDB Team
Sebastien is the Founder and Editor in Chief of iDB. Once a BlackBerry user, Sebastien instantly fell in love with the iPhone when it was first announced in 2007. Shortly after, he decided to start sharing his knowledge of iPhone jailbreaking and unlocking, which led to the creation of this blog. Sebastien currently owns 10 iPhones, 4 iPads, an iMac, a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, a MacBook Air, 2 Apple Watches, and 3 Apple TVs. When he’s not surfing the web, you can usually find Sebastien surfing the waves of Southern California, or traveling the world with his wife Tina, his daughter Chloé and his son Luca. You can find his posts on iDB here. Happy owner of the Cydia account #132051, Sebastien can be reached via email at seb [at] idownloadblog.com or on Twitter.
Cody’s history with smartphones goes almost as far back as he does. As the son of a Nokia employee, he was exposed early on to handsets like the N91 and the Communicator. He has since been involved in nearly every aspect of the mobile phone industry. While going to college, he worked at a Nokia factory, building handsets, and later moved on to a sales position at a major wireless carrier. In 2011, Cody turned his part-time hobby of writing about Apple and the mobile industry into a full time job and hasn’t looked back since. In his spare time, he’s a self-proclaimed pool shark and likes hanging out on the beach. You can find Cody’s posts on iDB here.

Christian writes about Apple from the north Adriatic Sea region, reporting on the latest from the Apple sphere in between sipping his cocktail on the beach, soaking up sun rays and snapping up sunset shots with his iPhone. He got bitten by the technology bug in his pre-teen days and has been hooked up ever since. He sometimes has overly strong opinions about Apple and Android devices he owns. Christian also blogged about Apple, Google and technology for TGDaily.com, Geek.com, Brightsideofnews.com, 9to5Mac.com and 9to5Google.com. In his spare time… Wait, Christian has no spare time.

Jim specializes in hardware and app reviews. The son of an IBM-er, he is an avid Apple convert but still has terrible flashbacks to the old days. He spent his younger years tinkering with computers, reading about technology, and watching Star Wars, while being teased by his peers at school for nerdy tendencies. Since 2008, he has worked on improving his Apple arsenal and spends his free time researching the latest gadget trends, trying to find the next awesome iDevice accessory for review. A native of the Commonwealth of Virginia, he enjoys the stiff crease on a well-ironed dress shirt and dons a bow tie on a regular basis. You can find Jim’s posts on iDB here.

Anthony lives on the East coast of the United States and has been blogging about iPhones, Macs, accessories, and software since 2011. He’s been playing with the iOS platform since 2009, which is when he picked up his first iPod touch with iOS 3 installed on it, and not long after he would discover the world of jailbreaking. He later bought his first Mac, and would never use a Windows PC ever again. Anthony is far from just a computer aficionado – he also loves to build, take apart, and re-build Jeeps. You can find Anthony’s posts on iDB here. His Cydia ID is #1252257 and you can contact him via email at Anthony [at] idownloadblog.com or follow him on Twitter.
Steffen adds a voice from the land down under to the squad. He started batting for team Cupertino a little more than 7 years ago when he got his hands on the iPhone 3GS. It did not take very long for a complete Apple infatuation to take hold of him and practically over night he swapped his trusted Sony Vaio for a MacBook and paper pad for iPad. Today, he owns at least one gadget of every product category Apple services and has a vested interest in the company’s future. He particularly enjoys lowering the entry barriers for new customers by explaining the nitty-gritty about iOS and preventing unexpected curveballs. Steffen has blogged in the football-sphere before, which explains the gratuitous use of sports metaphors in this bio and elsewhere. You can find all of his posts on iDB here. You can contact him via email at steffen [at] idownloadblog.com. If you love to discuss tech (with a side of sports) on social media, follow him on Twitter.
