Apple Adds 'Tips and Tricks' Guide for iPhone 4s, 5c and 5s to iPhone Website

Apple has added new 'Tips and Tricks' sections to its iPhone marketing websites, giving new and old iPhone users a handy guide to the new features of iOS 7 and the new iPhone models.

The three pages, one each for the iPhone 4s, 5c and 5s, include sections about photography, swipe gestures, FaceTime, Maps, Siri, Calendar, Music, Mail, Safari, AirPlay and Wireless, Settings, Compass, and Find My iPhone.

The pages, which are linked at the bottom of every iPhone marketing webpage on Apple.com, appear to be something of a quick start guide, complimenting the more in-depth iPhone User Guide.

So did apple just completely eliminate the iPhone 5 from everything?


Well, it's not in their product lineup anymore. But you could technically use the tips for the 5C.

I have never read a manual or guide or any iOS device. I did not think you needed to.

Not saying I am against it, maybe I would learn some new tricks...

Meanwhile acknowledging iOS's slightly degraded level of intuition...


They had tips/tricks page for the iPhone since 2010. The basics are intuitive but not every single feature can be instantly discover-able.

The 5C is roughly the same phone, so including the 5 in there would be a bit redundant.

Shame. The iPhone was always so obvious and simple. It never had a manual because it didn't need one, and with iOS 7, Apple threw the baby out with the bathwater. Now, the iPhone is no longer the universal smartphone. It's no longer "the phone for the rest of us."

It's just Android. If I wanted Android, I would have bought a Nexus (I do get quite tempted from time to time), not an iPhone.

The iPhone should be an iPhone. Not some cheesy Windows Phone knockoff with Vista transparency effects added, because, what the hell? It's Apple. Why the hell not?

how about a trick to make the colors not so contrasting?


Hahhahahahahahahah...!!!!!!
Omg, mate- so funny. That's REALLY good!!
Didn't you just win Last Comic Standing??
No? Even your closest friends never tell you that you're funny no matter how hard you try?
*sigh* Well, I was REALLY trying to dig your "quirky/sassy" sense of snarky humor. Sorry it's just really, really, really lame. =/

There's always room for Tips and Tricks but the egos of some people get flustered because they feel they are un-teachable and are "know-it-alls".


I'm sorry, I refuse to believe that anybod--

Won't read it.


Oh.
