I had just purchased an iPhone4 and this was my first foray into the smartphone world. The little bit of information that came with it is woefully inadequate!! A friend recommended this book and it has been very helpful. It's great for a "newby" like me.

This was a great all around review helping me understand the basics of operating my new iPhone 4s. The author definitely did not leave out any details. I also received the book in two days as a Prime member. Thanks!

This is by far the most complete instruction manual for the iPhone 4 & 4S covering the iOS 5 that I've seen!!!
The pictures illustrating all of the incredible things that the iPhone can do are fantastic. Can you tell how much I love this book? I highly recommend purchasing it!

I bought this book because the reviews were so good. But it turned out to be a big disappointment for me. Unless you are a novice with your iPhone, you find that this book does not go into important features in any depths. Here is one example. I wanted to learn about "Accessibility", and found that it was treated very superficially on only one half of a page. Compare this to the treatment by David Pogue in his Missing Manual on iPhone (5th edition, Dec., 2011). He covers this subject in great detail on 10 (yes, ten) pages! I found similar situations on several other topics. iPhone: The Missing Manual If you really want to learn the ins and outs of the iPhone running iOS 5, get Pogue's book instead. You wouldn't be disappointed.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an iPhone. It was easy to understand with good graphics to help. Even if you think you already know all about your phone, there are things this book can teach you. Get it now!

This edition is the latest that author Brad Miser has written. Fortunate to borrow the 4th edition from a local library, it was wonderful to see the 5th edition is being offered for sale which I ordered immediately. The format is very easy to understand and digest. In 601 pages of information, a clear and thorough index and well mapped table of contents, it is worthy of purchase. Many of our friends have had i phones longer than our household and often we are the ones that guide them along as they discover what this text has covered so well. Great value for the price. The book came in a timely manner, in excellent condition.

Until recently what I liked most about My iPhone is that I didn't have to jump all over the book to get the answers I wanted. Recently I emailed Brad Miser about a problem my wife's iPhone seemed to have. He responded! And responded quickly and helpfully. Now I'm looking at his other books.
