This is basically a rehash of the Apple event that rolled out the iPhone X, with some historical info thrown in. As an introduction I suppose it’s fine, though there’s little here that you can’t get from watching the Apple Keynote.
Probably more frustrating is the detailed content of the book - in a number of places it became clear that this isn’t a focused iPhone X book, but rather one that was written for an earlier model and just had some X content thrown in. In some places, directions are just wrong. One example: it tells you to go into settings to toggle the battery percentage on or off...but that function isn’t available on the iPhone X.
In sum, this book is frankly a rehash with few of any unique insights that is priced low enough to encourage impulse purchases while cynically taking advantage of the iPhone roll out. I won’t ask for my $4 back, but I will avoid anything from this author in the future.
I didn’t find enough in here. But, I learned a few things.
Unless an author serves up significant amounts of information - and not just rehashed basics..... it’s just an average read. I honestly would have given it two stars, but I considered really new urges o an iPhone, and there, they may get more out of it.
It is at least somewhat substantial..... so there was some effort there. Could have use more illustrations as well.....
Didn’t cover every Apple app... didn’t talk about how each are specific to the iPhone X... pretty general information....
