Inside this book, you’ll find a complete rundown of the best ways you can use your iPhone to communicate, be productive, and enjoy multimedia. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry, because our full-featured guide offers some nice tips for beginners: Take a tour of your iPhone’s exterior and learn how to activate it; tweak each one of your device’s settings; discover basic gestures for navigating through apps and home screens; and learn about some of our favorite iPhone tips and tricks. And don’t forget to meet your new personal voice assistant, Siri, and explore iCloud, Apple’s sync service.

Once you’ve gotten everything set up, it’s time to download some third-party apps and explore the various wonders your iPhone has to offer. Connect with friends and family using iMessage, FaceTime, and your telephone; get online using 3G or Wi-Fi; secure your connection via VPN; browse the Web and email coworkers; and navigate the world with the Maps app and GPS.

Organize your life with included Apple apps like Calendar, Notes, and Reminders, and expand your work productivity with Apple’s iWork office suite and with third-party apps; when you’ve finished a project, learn how to export it to a cloud service like Dropbox or print it out. If it’s the multimedia side of your iPhone that you’re more interested in, check out our chapter on syncing your music, videos, podcasts, TV shows, and apps. You can also play online games by using Apple’s Game Center, read books with iBooks, and make movie and musical masterpieces with iMovie and GarageBand, respectively.

    A very informative book. As a blind person I wish it would have had something about access ability. Still, a very good read. John
