The ultimate Apple iPhone user guide

everything you need to know to use an iPhone.

Here's everything you need to know to get started with a new iPhone.

If you had never seen all the videos and photos of the iPhone, and you just found it lying on someone's desk, you might not guess that it's a phone (let alone an iPod/web browser/alarm clock/stopwatch/etc.). You can't see any antenna, mouthpiece, earpiece – and, goodness knows, there are no number keys for dialing.

It's all there, though, hidden inside this sleek black-and-silver slab.

For all your dealings with the iPhone, you'll be expected to know what's meant by terms such as 'the Home button' and 'the Sleep/Wake switch'. A guided tour, therefore, is in order. So, allow us to present everything you need to know to get started with your iPhone.
