iPhone 5 doesn’t come with a handbook / user guide; this though doesn’t mean that you have to buy someone else’s handbook! iPhone does have a handbook! There are three ways to get it:
1. Download it from the Apple iBookstore (it’s free)
2. Get it online by going to manuals.info.apple.com
3. Get it on your phone; if you go to your bookmarked pages on Safari, the last bookmark is for the ‘iPhone User Guide’.
So why do you need this book? This book was written for my parents; people who needed to know as much as possible, as quickly as possible. There are people who want to know every single little detail about the iPhone, and you will find that in Apple’s comprehensive manual. If you are like my parents though, new to the iPhone and just want to learn all the basics in about 30 minutes or an hour that is, then this guide will help you. People who just want to know how to add their contacts, how to take photos, and how to email.
It’s not for advanced users, though if you are upgrading from the previous Apple iOS (iOS 5.1) then you will most probably find it useful.
