Nothing seems to change faster than an iPhone. Just when you think you know your way around the device, a new update arrives and you have to learn everything all over again. This fully revised edition of iPhone For Dummies arrives just in time to keep you up to date on iOS 14, the version of the iOS operating system released in late 2020, as well as all the updated features of iPhone 12. But don’t worry if you’re sticking with your current iPhone or buying an older model. This book offers help on using any iPhone that runs iOS 14, all the way back to iPhone 6.

Written by two longtime Apple fans and experts, this revised guide covers the essentials you’ll need to know about the industry-leading device and its slick iOS operating system, kicking off with set-up—navigating settings, hooking up to wifi, sharing audio and video—and then gearing you up to warp speed with the many incredible ways this smartphone’s tools and apps can bring a joyful extra dimension to your life.
