iPhone, the Missing Manual, 10th edition by David Pogue, book report

by Gary Miller, AAUG Member

I love my new iPhone, but don’t love not getting a complete manual, so I get the most from it, so when I saw David Pogue authored a new edition of his book that covers the latest in iOS 10, and iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+, I wanted it, has 673 pages and was published January 2017.  Good decision on my part, it’s full of humor, tips, tricks, in short all you want and need to get you to the head of the class!  David Pogue’s group always crafts the books for O’Reilly Media in a way, that it’s succinct, and can be read in paper or on an iPhone or iPad or on your computer as a pdf.  I used all formats in this review, and all are excellent.

You can buy it directly from the Publisher O’Reilly Media and get free updates to it.  Prices are: $19.99 for eBook, $24.99 for print or $27.99 for both versions..  IF you’re an AAUG Member, you get a substantial discount, refer to your eNews you receive in your email box).

OS 10 for the iPhone includes a host of exciting new features—including an all-new Messages app, updates to Maps, Search, 3D Touch, and widgets. And the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have new, more advanced cameras, and you can do more with Siri and third-party apps than ever before.

It’s a great resource, I refer to it, when I’m stumped, or a friend asks me a question I don’t know.  I recommend it!
