    The iPhone is a unique device in many ways. The most significant example of this is its Multi-touch interface that enables users to easily control the device and type with their fingers. It also includes sensors that automatically re-orient the screen display to match the orientation of the iPhone, such as switching to landscape view when the user rotates the phone 90 degrees when watching video. My iPhone, 4/E, provides simple yet complete information on getting the most from this device. Although compact in size, it provides readers with the information they need to make the iPhone an important part of their life quickly and easily. The book uses a "learn by doing" approach and includes only the background and technical detail needed to make the iPhone do what the reader wants it to. Lots of full color step-by-step instructions guide the reader from iPhone novice to iPhone master.
