Book Review: iPhone 4S Portable Genius
This book is a great comprehensive guide to the iPhone 4s and iOS 5.0 in general. The books is organized in a question format with chapter titles such as “How do I configure my iPhone” and “How do I connect my iPhone to a Network” making more of a functional organization than simply a list of features. This allows the book to be used as a reference manual to skip the stuff you already know, and the chapters are further divided on a more functional basis.
Each concept is presented with an excellent description and screen shots so you know you are doing it right and can follow along with the book. Everything is covered in this book: basics, intermediate and advanced topics; not just setup and sync but video editing, iCloud and troubleshooting.
The Genius series is a great product line from Wiley. It retains all the knowledge of an Apple genius without the attitude and the long wait to get to the bar. Purchase this book and go to a real bar with your spare time! Just don’t leave your iPhone there.
