About the Authors
The Macworld iPhone 5 Superguide was written by Christopher Breen, Serenity Caldwell, Dan Frakes, Lex Friedman, Dan Moren, Derrick Story, and Leah Yamshon.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been just over half a decade since Apple announced the original iPhone. In that timespan, we’ve seen the mobile phone market twist itself inside out: Oleophobic touchscreens replaced miniature keyboards, lavish 3D worlds rivaling desktop game consoles overtook basic games like Snake, and cellular data—once a luxury—became the standard. We do so many things with our phones these days that it’s sometimes hard to fathom how far we’ve come.
The iPhone 5 is the result of these developments in the last few years, and it’s stunning. It’s as speedy as a full-fledged computer, Apple has extended its screen size without making the device unwieldy, and it sports a gorgeous 8-megapixel camera. But if you look past all these improvements, you’ll see the same essential product that Steve Jobs unveiled in 2007. The iPhone still runs iOS, it still has just four buttons and a toggle switch, and its candy-bar shape still fits perfectly in your hand.
Whether this is your fifth iPhone or your first, we want you to love your device. And that means putting your faith in it and in its software. Our iPhone 5 Superguide aims to answer your lingering questions. We detail how to set up your new iPhone and turn on iCloud and automatic backups, and we provide some nice starting tips. We also help you get to know iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system; walk you through each of your installed applications, along with how-tos and customization; and ntroduce you to some of the many great third-party apps out there. And if you run into problems, our troubleshooting guide should put you on the right track in no time.
What you do with your iPhone from there—well, that’s entirely up to you.
