My 70 year old mother in law bought an iPhone 6 plus and did not know how to use it. Although her children and grandchildren all know, I wanted her to have a guidebook that she could read and refer to if she had questions. This book is perfect for that! I was concerned it might be written too simple since it's "For Seniors For Dummies" but it's perfect for someone with little smartphone experience. She has told me how helpful it has been.
It is too involved for an old person to use. Goes in to more than I will ever need. I just wanted an easy to read and understand "how to" for basic iphone use. I ordered "Help Me! Guide To iPhone 6s for Seniors" and it is wonderful! I highly recommend that one.
This book was a birthday gift for my Dad who turned 78 this year and received his first smartphone (iPhone) from my brother. Dad says he's learning something new reading the book every day. He says he especially likes how easy it is to read and understand. Dad is not technologically savy, so when he says it's easy to understand, he means it. I think iPhone For Seniors (For Dummies) is one of the best gifts I have gotten my Dad in a long time.
The author may know about iPhones, but he does not know about seniors. I find the structure of the book to be very much not user friendly for seniors. Also, whenever I look up a question using the index, the article seems to cover almost every thing except the answer to the question I have. Seniors have been seasoned to research things in a way we consider logical. Computer geeks think in binary fashion, so what they find clear is not clear to people with a more Aristotelian, analog background.
I found this book to be very helpful in learning about my iPhone. It taught me everything I wanted to know about my new phone. The pictures were also very helpful.
Just got this book. It is for me. This book has pictures big enough for me to see, writing I can understand. A gold mind for me. Who knows Maybe I'll be able to understand this younger generation soon.
Well written and easy to understand. I received the iPhone for my 76th birthday and did not know where to begin in respect to learning how to use it. I checked into the availability of classes, but they were all held at night and I no longer drive after dark. Thank you for making this available.
It does not answer or guide several issues. Like help with settings. I had issues as to why I lost my sound notifications for incoming text messages& missed phone calls. For us seasonedcitizens that was a very big problem.
