In iOS 7, Apple gave the iPhone the most radical makeover in its history. The new software is powerful, sleek, and a perfect companion to the iPhone 5s and 5c—but it’s wildly different. Fortunately, David Pogue is back with an expanded edition of his witty, full-color guide: the world’s most popular iPhone book.
The important stuff you need to know:
The iPhone 5s. This book unearths all the secrets of the newest iPhone—faster chip,
dual-color flash, fingerprint scanner, and more—and its colorful companion, the 5c.
The iOS 7 software. Older iPhones gain Control Center, AirDrop, iTunes Radio, free Internet phone calls, and about 197 more new features. This book covers it all.
The apps. That catalog of 1,000,000 add-on programs makes the iPhone’s phone features almost secondary. Now you’ll know how to find, manage, and exploit those apps.
The iPhone may be the world’s coolest computer, but it’s still a computer, with all of a computer’s complexities. iPhone: The Missing Manual is a funny, gorgeously illustrated guide to the tips, shortcuts, and workarounds that will turn you, too, into an iPhone addict.

Comments about oreilly iPhone: The Missing Manual, 7th Edition:
Excellent reference book to learn obvious and subtle facts about the iPhone. Call me a geek, but I am really enjoying this book for my bedside reading. I learn something new every time I pick the book up. Hubby and I just got our iPhones about a month ago. He is less geeky than me but is really starting to enjoy the iPhone, too. Thanks to David Pogue's tremendous ability to explain complex technology in easy terms, I am really excited by this book. It's great that I can stay up-to-date with new releases -- although I like reading the hard copy on my nightstand.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
