Getting a brand new iPhone or iPad is one of the most exciting and liberating experiences of the modern age. It can, however, be a little confusing – maybe even daunting – if it’s your first time with a smartphone, or if you’ve been using a Windows laptop for years. Not to worry, though. Our good friends in the Bookazine department have crafted this quartet of guidebooks to help you.
These digital editions are all available right now through your iCreate app, which you can download from iTunes. It’s a free app – so you only pay for the iCreate issues or bookazine editions that you want to read – and if it’s your first time using it, just scroll to the bottom of this page to find out how to download these bookazines.
iPhone 5s for Beginners and iPhone 5c for Beginners
If you’ve got yourself a new iPhone then, no matter which flavour you’ve gone for, these two bookazines have got you covered. Each one covers everything you need to know in order to get up and running, from the first switch-on and initial setup right through to managing your contacts, making calls and using apps. It’s packed full of informative and easy-to-follow tutorials, and you’ll have your iPhone mastered in no time.
iPad Air for Beginners
Did you leave the Apple Store with a sleek new iPad Air in your bag? If so, check this one out. Again, it takes you through those essential first steps and shows you how to get around on your iPad and start using apps. You’ll learn all about browsing on your tablet and managing your mail, as well as how to listen to music and watch videos you’ve downloaded from iTunes. You’ll even be able to improve the photos you take using your iSight camera and then share them with all your friends and family, all on iPad.
And if you have a different type of iPad? You’re still covered, because the tutorials in this book are suitable for all the current iPad models, too.
iOS 7 for Beginners
Lucky enough to have more than one device? Or maybe you have the latest iPod touch? If that’s the case, you’ll want to download this edition. Aimed at the most up-to-date version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 7 for Beginners applies to iPhone 4 or better, iPad 2 or better, both the original and new iPad mini with Retina, plus the 5th-gen iPod touch. It’s the perfect buy if you’ve recently updated your iDevices to iOS 7, or you’ve bought a new one altogether.
