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.

          This has everything you need, but even with Missing Manual signposting you have to have a (good) read to find it. The most difficult thing for a new iPhone user is that the telephone function is not like any other telephone's, and maybe a little more on the basic telephone software architecture, still in glorious Missing Manual prose, would help to orientate before diving into the detail.

            Comments about oreilly iPhone: The Missing Manual, 7th Edition:

            I tried the physical book, but handling it and the iPhone at the same time was problematic. Having the manual displayed on my desktop screen works much better. I am learning things that exerienced users don't know about.

                I live in an isolated area without neighbours, but with this book I learned fast.
                I have the book and the digital copy. It is an investment not an expense.

                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.
