Your first time using an iPhone comes with a lot of excitement. It can also be a bit intimidating.

The easy-to-follow steps in this book with its accompanying illustrations help you manage, personalize, and communicate using your iPhone. You discover how to do everything from shopping online and organizing appointments to taking and sharing pictures and downloading and listening to your favorite music. It provides help with brand new iPhone models as well as older devices, including how to upgrade older iPhones with the latest software. Topics include how to: 

  • Swipe, tap, and scroll through the iPhone interface 
  • Capture memorable photos and home videos 
  • Find apps in the App store 
  • Customize your iPhone’s accessibility features 
  • Bypass the keyboard and use Siri
