I was a bit skeptical to upgrade my iPhone 4S to iOS 8 because of the rumors of poor, rather than improved functionality. I took a leap of faith, and boy was I glad that I did. There are so many new features in iOS 8, that a book like this is exactly what I needed to introduce me to the completely redesigned iOS.The very first chapter in this book gave me a list of the features that were never before seen on an Apple device. The navigation in this book was also excellent, as I was able to click each new feature, and the book would show me an in-depth explanation of how to use it or turn it on. I also really liked that it is clearly shown to which device each feature applies.Finally, the tips and tricks chapter was the most extensive I have ever seen. Rather than clutter the book with tips that helped me to use my iPhone faster, the author organized them all into a single chapter, referencing out to other topics in the book where needed. It's very logically organized. For instance, I didn't know that you could pause an application while it is downloading or prevent applications from refreshing in the background. Overall, this is a priceless resource for anyone using any iOS 8 device.
I have iOS 8 on my new iPhone 6 Plus, and I was really surprised by the amount of content covered in this book. I thought that I knew everything about the iPhone, but I was wrong. I really like that this book cuts through all of the fluff and gets right to the point. I thought that some of the information was definitely aimed at beginners, but there was also quite a bit of valuable content for advanced users.
No complaints from father-in-law whom it was purchased for.
A much-needed manual for this new version of Apple's iOS system. Does a good job of guiding one through the operation of iPhones and iPads that run this system.
Not what I expected/hoped for
This book was most helpful for someone like me who is from a generation who for the most part are electronically challenged. I got a lot of information from this little book.
