Who knew you could do so much on your Apple products.  This book has a very good table of contents that list 100 questions about solving problems or having fun with your Iphone and Ipad.  Well written with tips for using Siri, IMessage various apps and more. Easy to follow instructions and good illustrations. Especially useful for people who use their phones for work.  I received a copy of this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Who knew we could do all this. I must be getting old either that or this stuff is not properly circulated. You can learn so much from this book

There is a lot of basic information in this edition, but will be very useful to people new to the technology an elder generations.

This book contains helpful hints and instructions for performing tasks.  They range from simple to a bit more complex.  However, even the more difficult tasks are explained in a step-by-step manner and are easily followed.
I read through the book rather quickly.  I was anxious to see what I could do with my iPad.  I have since started going through it in a more leisurely manner so that I can perform the tasks.  Whichever way you choose to read this book, you will find many new things to perform on your phone/tablet.
I received and eBook ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  This did not affect my opinion or ratings of this book.

All readers will find a few gems within 100+ iPhone/iPad Tricks You Can Do Right Now.

As phones get more complicated, it gets harder and harder to find all the tasks they are capable of doing. Strangely enough, nothing comes with a manual anymore (not that I would read it), just when it is increasingly required to understand that computer in your hand. If there are millennials and younger reading this review, I know that YouTube is the new manual. However, you have decades of more time to waste watching people begging for subscribers than I do. Time is short! This book will take all of two minutes to find what you want in the index and follow the clear and illustrated instructions to set it up on your iPhone.

Brimming with useful info, it is a given that while many tips will be familiar, many more will inspire an a-ha moment. While many tips are how to set up your iPhone features, there also some for companion apps like Safari, Hiya, Maps, Uber and Waze.

Who doesn’t want Siri to have an Irish accent (at least on St. Patrick’s Day)? 100+ iPhone/iPad Tricks You Can Do Right Now is the perfect gift for the iPhone user in your life. The clear instructions and illustrations plus logical organization make it a great resource. 4 stars!

Thanks to iWorkshop Academy Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I have an iPhone (a newer version) and was curious to see if I was using it to its fullest potential.  I use it to access work emails, Facebook, Twitter, emails, Instagram and take pictures.  I thought it would be fun to see what else it could do.

I knew some things ... like how to take a screenshot, using the flashlight, using the camera without unlocking my phone, using my fingerprint to unlock it rather than a code, etc.  

I found it interesting to learn that using the Notes app, I could scan a document (I would just take a picture of it).  Or the cool things I can do when sending a message to someone that has an iPhone to jazz up the message.  I recently bought a new car and have sync the Bluetooth with my phone ... because I've done that, I can ask Siri where I've parked my car.  I've changed Siri's voice to an Irish man.

There were some things I wasn't able to do.  I don't know if I wasn't understanding the instructions or my phone doesn't have the capability.  I couldn't do any of the Apple Home app things since I don't have Apple Home.
