Overview

With the iOS 8.1 software and the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple has taken its flagship products into new realms of power and beauty. The modern iPhone comes with everything—camera, music player, Internet, flashlight—except a printed manual. Fortunately, David Pogue is back with this expanded edition of his witty, full-color guide: the world’s most popular iPhone book.

  • The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. This book unearths all the secrets of the newest iPhones. Bigger screens, faster chips, astonishing cameras, WiFi calling, Apple Pay, crazy thin.

  • The iOS 8.1 software. Older iPhone models gain predictive typing, iCloud Drive, Family Sharing, "Hey Siri," the Health app, and about 195 more new features. It’s all here, in these pages.

  • The apps. That catalog of 1.3 million add-on programs makes the iPhone’s phone features almost secondary. Now you’ll know how to find, exploit, and troubleshoot 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 master.

    Dick and Jane for iPhone fans

    I love,love this book as much as my iPhone. It has helped me immensely as I traversed little glitches that kept me from going forward. After less than a week of having this phone - I could give lessons - thanks to the author. Unfortunately, one cannot keep up with all the updates and add ons - so you're left to do the rest alone.
