Well worth reading
I’ve owned Apple products for aeons, so I tend to know what I’m doing, but this book taught me some things which are really useful. It’s also well written and clear.
Very Helpful Book
Even though I have had my IPad for almost a year, this was extremely useful and I was able to learn so many good tips and has helped understand how to use all the features on IOS 13. The book is written in detail and is easy to follow yet I didn’t feel patronised. It was easy to follow along and even defines words that may be unclear to some readers in the glossary which was extremely helpful.
I found this book so helpful...full of easy to use tricks. I'll definitely get much more out of my phone now!
