    I was having trouble accessing one of my email accounts and purchased this volume to help. At least twice, the info in the book did not even match what was on my iPhone 6s screen! I decided to just try something, and followed book's instructions to archive some email I wanted to keep long term. Method one guided me to use an icon that did not appear any where. Method two sent my emails to "Trash"! There was no archived folder even on my phone. Guess I just wasted $ 2.99. There should be a "return policy" on some of these items

    Before purchasing an iPhone 6S, I had an iPhone 4, running iOS 8. I thought that I knew everything about iPhones. It turns out that so many new features were introduced in iOS 9 that it made my head spin. Coupled with the new 3D Touch features, I was a bit overwhelmed with all that my new phone could do. I really liked the clean organization and the lack of useless fluff like the "History of the iPhone" that so many other books include. On top of that, the Troubleshooting chapter really helped me as well when I was in a pinch. This was not the first Survival guide that I purchased, and it won't be the last. Five stars!
