iPhone: The Missing Manual, 9781449301774 (1449301770), Pogue Press, 2011
How do you make the point that the iPhone has changed the world? The easy answer is “use statistics”—100 million sold, 500,000 downloadable programs on the iPhone A pp Store, 15 billion downloads…. Trouble is, those statistics get stale almost before you’ve finished typing them.

Maybe it’s better to talk about the aftermath. How since the iPhone came along, cell carriers (AT&T, V erizon, Sprint, and so on) have opened up the calcified, conservative way they used to consider new cellphone designs. How every phone and its brother now have a touchscreen. How BlackBerry, Google (Android) phones, and Windows 7 phones all have their own app stores. How, in essence, everybody wants to be the iPhone.

The thing is, they’ll never quite catch up technologically, because A pple is always moving, too. I n O ctober 2011, for example, it introduced the fifth iPhone model, the iPhone 4S. I t looks identical to the previous model, the iPhone 4—but the guts are quite a bit different. The processor is much faster, the camera is much better, and there’s speech recognition. Not just dictation—you can actually tell the phone what to do.

More importantly, there’s a new, free version of the iPhone’s software, called iOS 5. (Why not “iPhone O S” anymore? Because the same operating system runs on the iPad and the iPod Touch. I t’s not just for iPhones anymore, and saying “the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch OS” takes too long.)

iOS 5 adds all kinds of new features people have been pining for: direct access to the camera from the Lock screen, a Notification Center that lists your messages, calls, and appointments with one finger-swipe, and so on.

Why is it so important? Because you can run iOS 5 on older iPhone models (the 4 and the 3GS) without having to buy the iPhone 4S. This book covers all three phones that can run the iOS 5 software: the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 4S.
