My parents are official iPhone users. I began writing this book when I realized that they could make phone calls and take pictures, but didn’t have the faintest idea how to make the text size bigger on their text messages or a number of other things that I thought were common sense after using the phone for a day. I decided to make a list for them and this book is a result of that.
If you have been using Apple products for several years, then this book will probably have a few tricks that you didn’t know—especially if you are upgrading to the new OS (iOS 6). The book, however, is geared towards those getting started.
This book is meant to be a quick start reference. It’s not a tutorial on how to use your phone. If you are looking for something that is more hands on and teaches you how to use the phone from square one, then you should try the beginners’ handbook which I have also written: The iPhone 5 Quick Starter Guide. Additionally, if you’d like to just see what major things have been added to iOS 6 then jump to the last section which is just for your reference and does not count towards the 50+ tips in this short guide.
