Everything iPhone 5 s & iPhone 5 c Why the brand-new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are the most amazing smartphones in existence
e don’t need to tell you that both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are exceptional devices. One features the Ărst ever 64-bit processor found in a mobile device, and a breakthrough Ăngerprint ID system. The other re-imagines the iPhone in a range of vibrant colours. In the seven years since Apple Ărst unveiled the iPhone, the touchscreen gadget has rightly become known as the handset to rule all others. As well as its impressive looks, the iPhone has won accolades and earned adoration the world over for its superb build and unsurpassed usability. Not for nothing was its British designer Jonathan Ive knighted by the Queen for his contribution to industrial design. Every model has had revisions and subtle improvements that have made the world-famous smartphone better than the one before. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to get started.

Get to know iPhone symbols Status symbols let you know what’s going on with the iPhone
ike a Mac’s menu bar, the top of the iPhone’s screen displays a number of status icons – shorthand for various settings and connections. The icons that tell you what phone, internet or other connection your device is making are visible in the upper lefthand corner, while icons in charge of the device’s other functions appear on the right. This at-a-glance guide explains what each symbol means.
Signal strength These bars indicate the current 3G, 4G and LTE strength, as well as the phone call reception. They fuctuate between one circle (little to no service) and fve (strongest reception) Wi-Fi strength You’ll see this symbol if you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network. The stronger the signal, the more bars you’ll see (between one to three) 3G If you are connected to a 3G data network you will see this icon. This should enable you to use the internet and data-connected apps with ease 4G If you’re lucky enough to be on one of the new 4G network plans, and are in a 4G zone, then you’ll see this icon. Your internet will be blazing-fast on the 4G network LTE LTE is similar to 4G. If you are on a LTE network you should see faster internet access and be able to use data-connected apps with ease Bluetooth Turn on Bluetooth and you’ll see this icon. By default the symbol is grey, but if you connect to a Bluetooth device the symbol will turn blue VPN This icon appears when you connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Get to know iPhone gestures Discover how to interact with the iPhone with these finger gestures
lthough Apple has designed the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to be simple to learn, sometimes you may want a primer on the basics. Here’s a breakdown of the major multitouch gestures, navigation, home screen tips and tricks and multitasking features you’ll need to master your iOS device.
Gestures and techniques If you’ve never before owned a multitouch device from Apple, you may be unfamiliar with crazy phrases such as pinch-to-zoom and the diƊerence between ăick and swipe. Have no fear: while some of these gestures may have odd names, they’re easy enough to pick up.
Tap: As clicking is to a desktop computer, so is tapping to an iOS device. Tapping is the most common and basic gesture.
Double-tap: Tap an object twice in succession to eﬀect a double-tap. Double-taps are primarily used for zooming in or out on text.
Tap, hold and drag: For some functions, such as highlighting text, copying and pasting or deleting and moving apps, you’ll need to tap and hold down on the screen. When you do this on a piece of text, it will highlight in blue, and editing handles – vertical lines with blue dots – will appear on either side of the highlighted area. You can tap, hold and, while holding down, drag your ﬁnger to increase or decrease the selection.
Flick and swipe: Swiping is one of your primary navigational tools: you use a left- or right swipe to move through app pages on your home screen or images in the Photos app; you use an up or down swipe to read text in Safari, iBooks, Newsstand or elsewhere. It’s one of the easiest gestures to learn.
Pinch: To zoom in or to open something, place your thumb and index ﬁnger, pinched together, onscreen and spread them apart. To zoom out, do the reverse.
Rotate: You can even rotate some elements with two or more ﬁngers. Just place two ﬁngers on the screen and make a circular gesture, clockwise or counterclockwise.
10 The Complete Guide to the iPhone 5s & the iPhone 5c
Get to know the home screen Discover how to navigate and customise your iPhone screen
ow that you’ve taken your Ărst step into the iOS world with multitouch gestures, it’s time to learn how to navigate your device. We’ll go over where your apps are stored, how to organise, search and delete them.
The home screen
When you ārst turn on your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c, you’re brought to the home screen. Here, you’ll see an assortment of icons grouped into rows, and several more icons grouped in the translucent Dock along the bottom of the screen. The home screen is where your apps live, and where you can launch them. The Dock The translucent bar along the bottom of your home screen is called the Dock. If you’ve tried swiping between app pages, you’ll notice the icons in the Dock don’t change; the Dock is for the four apps used most frequently.
Using and organising apps
Open and close an app To open an app, simply tap its icon. Once it’s open, you can return to the home screen at any time by pressing the Home button. Rearrange and delete apps To rearrange the order of your icons, tap and hold any icon on the home screen. After a few seconds, all your app icons, including the one you’re holding, will start to wiggle, and a small black X will pop up in each icon’s top-left corner. Once they do this, you can rearrange any apps on the home screen, or even drag them into or out of the Dock. If you’ve installed a third-party app you don’t want anymore, you can tap the X to delete it (you cannot delete the apps that came preinstalled on your device). When you’re Ănished, press the Home button, and your icons will stop wiggling and stay in their new location. Use folders A folder is a group of apps, represented by a single icon, on your home screen. To create a folder, start by pressing and holding your Ănger on any app icon to enter edit mode; after the icons begin to wiggle, drag an app on top of another app. When you release the app, you’ll create a folder, which will open and display both apps. The iPhone will guess at a name for the folder based on the types of apps, but you can change the name of the folder by tapping on its name and editing the text with the keyboard. The multitasking window Quickly double-press the Home button and the Multitasking bar window will appear. This displays the apps most recently run and you can slide left and right. To switch to a diƊerent app, tap its window. Control Centre Swipe up from the bottom of the display for further controls. The Control Centre enables you to turn on and oƊ key features, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and has Music controls.
Search in Spotlight
Swipe down on the home screen to access Spotlight. Use the keyboard to search for apps, contacts, mail, messages, events and all other kinds of information on your iPhone.
Using apps Tap an app to open it, and press the Home button to return to the home screen.

Get to know the phone Here’s how to make and manage calls with the iPhone
aking and answering phone calls on the iPhone is a piece of cake. There’s also plenty you can do while on the phone to manage multiple calls or locate useful information. When you open the Phone app a menu at the bottom oƊers the Following: Favourites, Recents, Contacts, Keypad and Voicemail. You can use Favourites, Recents and Contacts to choose a person to call. Or dial in a number directly using Keypad: enter the numbers and tap Call.
Receiving and returning calls Slide the arrow across the green ‘Slide To Answer’ icon to unlock your phone and answer a call. If someone calls when you’re using the iPhone you’ll instead see options to Answer or Decline the call. The ‘Reply With Message’ option lets you acknowledge the caller if you can’t take the call. ‘Remind Me Later’ and the location or time-based ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature that automatically sends calls to voicemail are handy when you need to get stuƊ done or are travelling overseas and don’t want mid-slumber interruptions.
In-call options Six buttons appear during phone calls: Mute, Keypad, Speaker, Add Call, FaceTime and Contacts. Tapping the Mute button turns oƊ your microphone; you’ll still be able to hear callers on the other end of the line. If you tap and hold the Mute button, you’ll put the caller on hold and mute both ends of the conversation. Tap the Speaker button to put the call on speakerphone. You can use the keypad while on a call to navigate phone trees or dial extensions. If you need to look up a number or an address while on a call, tap Contacts to access your Address Book. You can have more than one person on the call. Tap the Contacts button or the Add Call button to add another.
Recents and Favourites
The Recent calls screen oƅers two views: All or Missed. With All selected you see all recent calls and the ones you missed are highlighted in red. We Ănd this to be the most useful screen as it oƊers you quick access to people you are frequently in touch with. Tap the Info (‘i’) button next to a recent contact to view their details. If you tap ‘Add To Favourites’ in this window you can then access the person from the Favourites screen.
Talking points Use the onscreen options to ﬁeld incoming calls and to access additional features while you talk
12 The Complete Guide to the iPhone 5s & the iPhone 5c
Get to know notifcations The iSight camera on the iPhone is ideal for conducting video chats otiĂcation Centre is an exceptionally useful feature in iOS 7. NotiĂcations are messages about things that are happening on your phone. They can be anything from a missed call to an app update or what’s in your daily calendar. NotiĂcations often ăash on the top of the screen, or appear as an alert. However, you can access all your notiĂcations at once using the NotiĂcation Centre. This is accessed by sliding down your Ănger from the top of the screen. Note that it has to be from the very top of the screen, and it’s usually better to start oƊ the top part of the iPhone and work your way down. There are three parts to NotiĂcation Centre: Today, All and Missed. Today is the default view and shows you the local weather, events in the Calendar app, items from Reminders and – if you scroll down – stocks and messages for tomorrow. Tapping All opens NotiĂcation Centre to a wider range of messages. Here you’ll see missed calls and recent messages, social media activity and updates to apps on the iPhone. Finally the Missed tab enables you to view alerts and activity that you have overlooked. These are often messages and reminders that you didn’t notice Ărst time around. When you’ve Ănished with NotiĂcation Centre simply drag it back up and oƊ the top of the screen.
Using Control centre
ontrol Centre is a feature-packed part of iOS 7 that can be thought of as a complement to NotiĂcation Centre. You access Control Centre by sliding your Ănger up from the bottom of the screen. It’s best to start all the way from the bottom of the screen and, if you’re on the Lock screen, it’s best to aim from the central point above the Home button. Control Centre is absolutely packed with features. At the top are Ăve icons that are used to turn on or oƊ key features on the iPhone: Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb and Screen Lock (this Ănal option locks the orientation of the screen, which is useful for some apps such as iBooks). Below that is a Brightness slider, move it left to dim the screen and to the right to brighten it. Then comes a set of controls for the Music app (and other audio). The top slider is used to control the playback position; then the current song is listed; below that Play/Pause, Forward and Back buttons; Ănally it has a volume slider. Next are two buttons for AirDrop and AirPlay. AirDrop is used to share items such as photos and web pages with nearby people; AirPlay is used to stream music and movies to speakers and your TV. Finally there four useful buttons at the bottom: Flashlight turns on the LED, Timer is used to set countdowns, and then there’s Calculator and Camera.
Pick and choose Control Centre is jam-packed with useful buttons, sliders and options

Get to know iMessages Discover clever ways to share messages with your friends
n common with just about every smartphone, the iPhone is brilliant at messaging. The iPhone has an exceptional app called iMessage that lets you exchange text-only SMS (Short Message Service) messages and photos and video MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messages with other mobile devices. When messaging another iPhone or iOS user, it does far more.
To start a message, tap the Messages app on the home screen, and then tap the new message icon (a box with a pencil). You can enter a recipient’s mobile number, type a contact’s name or tap the Add icon (top-right) to choose an existing contact from your Contacts list. Use regular text messages when sending messages to non-Apple mobile phones. Use the keyboard to type out your messages and press Send.
Making FaceTime video calls The iSight camera on the iPhone is ideal for conducting video chats
onducting webcam-based calls on a laptop or PC is nothing new. FaceTime extends the concept of video chatting to smartphones. You need a Wi-Fi or cellular network connection and for whoever you’re calling to have a FaceTime-compatible device (these include iPhones, iPads, iPod touch and some Mac OS X computers). To initiate a FaceTime call you can make a voice call as usual and then switch over to a video chat by tapping the FaceTime button. This appears where the Hold button would usually be found during phone calls. (You’ll still see Hold if you have the FaceTime feature disabled, or you can bring it up by pressing and holding Mute). A question mark appears if your iPhone isn’t sure that the other party has FaceTime abilities. If they do, the recipient will be presented with a screen allowing him or her to decide whether to accept your FaceTime request. If they decline, you’ll stay on the phone sans video. If you accept it, FaceTime will launch and both callers will appear onscreen. FaceTime now works over cellular as well as Wi-Fi, but you may need to turn it on by going to Settings, FaceTime and enabling the ‘Use Cellular Data’ setting. Be careful of how much data you are using, though.

Get to know iTunes & apps Discover how to send and receive emails on the iPhone
n the home screen is an app called App Store. This is the place to go to get more apps. Apple has almost 750,000 iPhone apps available on the App Store, so there really is something for everybody. Tap App Store to view all the available apps. In the centre of the display is a range of apps organised by themes such as Best New Apps and Best New Games. The apps themselves appear as square icons. You can slide left and right to view more items in each list. Apps have their price listed underneath. Some apps are free to use, but you may have to pay extra when using the app to access special features. If an app catches your eye, tap its icon to get more details. You will see a window with three tabs: Details, Reviews and Related. The Ănal option suggests similar apps. To get an app tap the Price or Free button and Buy. You may need to enter your password; alternatively you can use the Touch ID Ăngerprint scanner to complete the purchase. At the bottom are Ăve icons that can be used to get a wider range of apps: Featured is the default screen; Top Charts shows you what are the most popular apps. There are three categories: Paid, Free and Top Grossing. These are often packed with the latest games, but if you tap the Categories option in the top-left of the screen you can narrow down the options to your favourite app types.
App Store More than 750,000 apps are available for iOS. Fortunately, Apple makes it easy to ﬁnd them within the App Store
Using the iTunes Store There is a second store on the iPhone called iTunes Store. You can use iTunes Store to get a huge range of content for your iPhone. It’s the best place to go to get music, movies, and television programmes. As with the App Store you select items and tap the price to buy them. They will then be downloaded and you can enjoy them right on your iPhone. At the bottom are Ăve tabs that enable you to get diƊerent types of content. These are Music, Films TV, Search and More. Search is just as easy to use as the App Store – you can search for TV shows, artists, songs and anything else. Tap More to get a set of extra items, including Audiobooks, Tones and Genius (this suggests music and movies you might want to watch based on your other purchases). Finally, Purchased and Downloads enable you to access content you have previously purchased. At the top of each area is Features and Charts. These enables you to view high-proĂle content. Anything you pick up from the iTunes Store or App Store is downloaded straight to your device. Music to go The iTunes Store makes it incredibly easy to view and download the latest music, movies and TV shows

Feature: Getting to know the iPhone
Get to know Siri Apple’s voice-controller is now a better listener - and much, much smarter
iri replaces the Voice Control feature introduced with the iPhone 3Gs, and allows you to speak commands to your phone and have it do your bidding. In iOS 7 Siri has become much faster, and better at coming up with the feature you’re looking for. It’s one of the ăashiest features on the iPhone.
Start up Siri You activate Siri the same way as you did Voice Control on older iPhones: by holding down the Home button on the iPhone itself, or by holding down the control button on your wired or wireless headset. What to say? You can ask Siri to do all kinds of things. It’s great at working with text messages – simply say: “Send a text to Dave that says ‘Hello, what time are we meeting tonight?’” and Siri will do exactly that (if you know more than one Dave, it’ll ask you which one – so you’ll need to speak out your answer). Excitingly, you can also do the same with your emails.
What does Siri know? It knows a lot about weather and restaurants, sports and movie times. Apple says that understanding the words you say is the easy part, and that Siri’s true genius is in Ăguring out what you want when you say those words and getting you the answer. Siri now also works with Apple’s Maps application in the UK, so you can search for directions and local businesses. Speak and spell When you get a text message, you can instruct Siri to read the message. You can then tell Siri to reply to the message, dictate the entire message, have Siri read it back to you to conĂrm that it makes sense and then send it. Wake me up It’s much easier to set an alarm or timer using Siri than it is to unlock your phone, Ănd the Clock app and tap within the app. Just say: “Set a timer for three minutes,” and your phone begins to count down until your tea is ready. “Set an alarm for 5am” does so instantly. Take note “Remind me to record my favourite show” and “Note that I need to take my suit to the cleaners” work, too. These are short bursts of data input that can be handled quickly by voice, and they work well. What’s special about Siri? Users not only can talk to Siri as if it were a person, they seem to want to. Beyond merely understanding what you have to say, Siri works because it has a personality. Siri’s personality is one of its biggest draws. It’s not just fun, but funny. When you ask Siri the meaning of life, it tells you “42” or “All Evidence to date points to chocolate.”

Become a touchscreen typist Tips and tricks that make using the iPhone keyboard easier
or many, the biggest challenge of the iPhone is getting used to the virtual keyboard. In fact, there are lots of ways Apple ensures touchscreen typing is a positive experience if you’re coming from a full-size computer keyboard or a thumb-based smartphone. Here are some ways to tap into the iPhone’s typing features.
Catch and release The iPhone registers the key you’ve pressed when you take your Ănger oƊ the key, rather than when you tap on it. So if you press a key and see that it’s the wrong one, you can easily slide your Ănger to the correct key. In conventional typing it’s common to try and avoid pressing multiple keys; with the iPhone there’s no need: it recognises only single keys at once, while its correction tools work out what you meant to type.
Punctuation slide To add a punctuation mark, press and hold the .?123 button until the numeric and punctuation keyboard appears, slide your Ănger to the key you want, and release. Not only will you type the punctuation mark, but you’ll Ănd yourself back in alphabet mode without having to press the ABC key.
Unlock Caps Lock
Soft machine The iPhone’s onscreen keyboard has large buttons that make it easy to type accurately and quickly
Typing in all caps may be considered impolite, but sometimes it’s necessary. The Caps Lock functionality isn’t enabled by default; to turn it on, go to Settings: General: Keyboard and tap on ‘Enable Caps Lock’. Then, when you’re typing, quickly double-tap the Shift key; it’ll turn blue to tell you Caps Lock is on. Tap on it once more to disable Caps Lock.
Present and correct No matter how good a typist you are, mistakes happen. Fortunately, the iPhone’s pretty smart. By looking at the letters near the ones you typed, it can deduce with surprising accuracy what you meant to type and oƊer the suggestion in a text bubble. To accept the suggestion, press the spacebar or a punctuation mark. To reject it, tap on the suggestion and it’ll go away. Dismiss the iPhone’s suggestion for the same word twice, and it’ll add the word you typed to its dictionary.
If you discover a typo, it’s easy enough to āx. Tap on the spot where you want the cursor to appear, and then tap on backspace to clear your mistake. Controlling the cursor this way can be challenging. For more precise results, tap and hold on the text to make a magnifying loupe appear. As you drag the loupe around, the text-insertion point will follow it so you can easily position the cursor exactly where you want.

Get to know Touch ID How to use just your fingerprint to unlock an iPhone 5s
he iPhone 5s is armed with a high-proﬁle ﬁngerprint scanner inside the Home button. Called Touch ID, the new system aims to replace your passcodes and App Store password with a ﬁngerprint scan. As you touch the Home button the Touch ID sensor reads your ﬁngerprint and unlocks your iPhone. No more sliding to unlock, and no more entering four-digit passcodes. Touch ID aims to make the iPhone more secure and easier to use at the same time.
How does Touch ID work?
The Touch ID technology found in the iPhone 5s combines an integrated image scanner into the Home button. Although it’s not quite a camera, it does scan an image of your ﬁnger or thumbs. “The technology within Touch ID is some of the most advanced hardware and software we’ve put in any device,” says Apple. “To ﬁt within the Home button, the Touch ID sensor is only 170 microns thin, not much thicker than a human hair. This high-resolution 500ppi sensor can read extremely ﬁne details of your ﬁngerprint. The button itself is made from sapphire crystal – one of the clearest, hardest materials available. This protects the sensor and acts as a lens to precisely focus it on your ﬁnger.” The result of all this technology is a Home button that is capable of reading your ﬁnger in any orientation, and uses that degree of image recognition to unlock your phone.
How to set up Touch ID
Touch ID is set up automatically during the iOS Setup Assistant process. You still need to enter a four-digit passcode ﬁrst and Touch ID is used instead of this passcode. The passcode is useful because it ensures you will be able to unlock the phone in the presence of any problems with your ﬁngers being recognised. So make sure you pick a passcode you can remember, but also don’t pick anything personal or too easy to guess, such as ‘1234’. If you haven’t set up Touch ID during the setup process you can do it by doing the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
Tap Settings, General, Passcode & Fingerprint, Fingerprints Tap ‘Add A Fingerprint’ Tap one ﬁnger to the Home button and hold it there until the phone vibrates Continue to tap the same ﬁnger to the Home button slightly moving it each time until the iPhone gets it Each time you tap the ﬁnger to the Home button the Touch ID display will start to get more detailed.
Touch ID is designed to minimise the input of your passcode, but your passcode will be needed for additional security validation, such as enrolling new ﬁngerprints. Do not press the Home button, you need only to gently push your ﬁnger against it.
18 The Complete Guide to the iPhone 5s & the iPhone 5c
Touch and go Touch your ﬁnger repeatedly on the Home button to set up Touch ID
Add more ﬁngers to Touch ID
You can add up to Ăve digits to Touch ID, which should be enough to get your through the Touch ID unlock process. If you want to add more Ăngers tap Settings, General, Passcode & Fingerprint, Fingerprints and Add Finger and go through the process with a diƊerent digit.
Use Touch ID to unlock the iPhone 5s You use Touch ID to unlock your iPhone every time you wake it up from sleep. There are two ways to use it: • •
Press the Home button and keep your Ănger lightly on it until the phone wakes up and unlocks Press the Sleep/Wake button to wake up the phone and then tap and hold your Ănger on to the Home button to unlock it
After three attempts you’ll also be given the option of entering your passcode. If you continue to use Touch ID for two more attempts you will be required to enter your passcode to unlock the phone.
Use Touch ID to make purchases
Touch ID is also used to make App Store purchases. To do this you need to ensure that Touch ID is set up to work with the App Store. 1. 2.
Adding ﬁngers You can add up to ﬁve diﬀerent digits with which to unlock your iPhone 5s
Tap Settings, General, Passcode & Fingerprint, Fingerprints Tap iTunes & App Store to set it on (green)
Now when you make a purchase you’ll see a Scan Fingerprint option next to the usual enter password. you can now make purchases on the app store with just a touch of the Ănger. You can’t yet use Touch ID with Apple’s iCloud Keychain, so you’ll still need to enter your passcode to access the passwords that you’ve saved for online websites.
Fix Touch ID problems
Apple suggests the following Ăxes if you have problems with Touch ID: • • •
Add and use a diƊerent Ănger Persevere. As you use Touch ID, it will learn and improve recognition of your Ăngerprint Use the passcode. You can use your passcode simply by sliding to unlock as on a previous model of iPhone
You can Ănd more Touch ID help at the Apple support website (apple.com/support).
How secure is Touch ID?
According to Apple, “Every Ăngerprint is unique, so it is rare that even a small section of two separate Ăngerprints are alike enough to register as a match for Touch ID. The probability of this happening is 1 in 50,000 for one enrolled Ănger. This is much better than the 1 in 10,000 odds of guessing a typical four-digit passcode.” Apple says “It isn’t possible for your actual Ăngerprint image to be reverse-engineered from the Touch ID mathematical representation.”
Getting the scan As Touch ID becomes familiar with your ﬁngers and thumbs the ﬁngerprint image becomes more detailed

Feature: Inside the iPhone 5
Inside the iPhone 5s Discover the amazing tech inside the iPhone 5s. By iFixit.com
ur friends over at iFixIt were anxious to bite into this latest piece of Apple fruit. So anxious, in fact, that they went to the land down-under to get one. They travelled halfway around the world to Australia to get an iPhone 5s before anybody else on earth, and the ﬁrst thing they did was take it to pieces. But don’t worry: they’re experts at this sort of thing, and took lots of photographs on the way. The iPhone 5s is every bit as gorgeous on the inside. Apple has created a stunner by packing even more advanced features into the same tiny space. There’s a huge amount of technology packed inside the iPhone 5s. Let’s take a look at what’s on the inside...
Tech specs ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
Apple A7 processor with 64-bit architecture M7 motion co-processor 16-, 32- or 64GB of storage 4in Retina display with 326ppi 8Mp iSight camera (with larger 1.5µ pixels) and a 1.2Mp FaceTime camera Fingerprint identity sensor built into the home button Available in three colours: space grey, silver and gold
1 A screw loose Apple continues the everlasting trend of locking out users with pentalobular security screws. Luckily, we came prepared. We whipped out our trusty iPhone 5 Liberation Kit (available from iﬁxit.com) and proceeded to unscrew the phone. We replaced the iPhone’s security screws with regular Philips variants.
2 The sucker
We enlisted the help of a suction cup to free the display assembly from the rear casing. Like the iPhone 5, the display is much easier to remove and replace than that of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s.
Our careful spudgering paid of. At the bottom of the phone a cable connects the Touch ID sensor in the home button to the Lightning port assembly. This adds a small element of danger to disassembly, as pulling too hard on the suction cup could cause damage.
20 The Complete Guide to the iPhone 5s & the iPhone 5c
5 The battery The 5s has a claimed 10 hours of talktime on 3G, but there are rumbles that iOS 7 isn’t doing you any favours. The gold unit from China’s Desay Battery sports a 3.8v, 5.92Wh, 1560mAh battery. It appears that diferent units use diferent battery manufacturers; our ‘space grey’ spare came from Simplo Technology.
4 Oh… glue With our Pro Tech Screwdriver Set (ifxit.com), we removed a few metal connector covers and embarked on the epic battle of battery removal. The missing battery pull-tab, though seemingly innocuous, indicates a bigger problem for battery repair: glue. A lot of glue. We use settle for thermal battery removal via an iOpener (ifxit.com). There’s a lot of glue in here.
6 Display removal
7 Touch ID scanner
With the battery safely removed, we turned to the next step in our disassembly journey: removing the (unchanged) 326ppi Retina display assembly. A few ficks of a spudger to disconnect the FaceTime camera, digitiser and LCD cables, and the display was free. Looking for some tech specs on the display? Well look no further! In fact, just look backward… to the iPhone 5. Despite the trend in almost every other smartphone release, the iPhone 5s display is no bigger, better or badder than last year’s model.
We quickly extracted the home button and Touch ID, Apple’s fngerprint scanner. Time to dust for prints! A CMOS chip, the Touch ID is in essence a bunch of very small capacitors that creates an ‘image’ of the ridges on your fnger. The sensor technology, developed by AuthenTec and bought by Apple a year ago, reportedly locally stores your fngerprints, so giving your iPhone the fnger will not make it all the way back to Cupertino. We worry about how well the sapphire crystal covering the sensor can protect it from degrading over time like most CMOS fngerprint sensors. If not, it could become a ticking time bomb, just like that super-glued battery.

8 The iSight camera
9 Logic board
The back of the iSight camera is labelled DNL333 41WGRF 4W61W. The DNL markings are consistent with the markings on the camera modules housing the Sony IMX145. The marks on the side of the module are diferent, but our industry insiders tell us this is also Sony’s. As Apple has stated the pixel pitch on this camera is 1.5µ, this sensor should not be the IMX145, but a newer variant. The bottom of the camera is labelled AW32 65BD 4511 b763.
A great example of Apple’s iterative design, the 5s shows some streamlining and optimisation in its internal construction. Gone are those silly antennaeinterconnect cables, leaving one less thing to break or get accidentally disconnected. If only it had decided to move that antenna connector from the bottom of the logic board to the top…

As we searched for the much-anticipated M7 co-processor, we began to wonder whether it was a separate chip or additional functionality built into the A7. It turned out to be a NXP LPC1800 buried beneath a neoprene-looking cover.
13 The Apple A7 CPU The switch to the A7 marks the frst use of a 64-bit processor in a smartphone. The modern ARMv8 instruction set was designed for a 64-bit architecture. It does away with the legacy support of the past 20 years, which increases efciency, improving performance without sacrifcing battery life.

Feature: Speed testing the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c
Speed testing the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c How fast are Apple’s latest iPhones? We ﬁnd out
hile many things about the new iPhones are similar to last year’s iPhone 5 (including the same 4in screen, 1136x640-pixel resolution and storage capacity), a number of under-the-hood changes range from subtle to startling. The iPhone 5s features a brand-new 64-bit A7 processor running at 1.3GHz. The iPhone 5c is powered by the A6 processor Apple introduced in last year’s iPhone 5. Apple says the new A7 chip is up to twice as fast as the A6 in both processing and graphics. Interestingly, most of the tests we ran show the iPhone 5s to be twice as fast as the iPhone 5c, but the 5c proved to be a bit slower than the iPhone 5 with the same 1.3GHz A6 processor. The iPhone 5s’ Geekbench score was more than twice that of the iPhone 5c. The iPhone 5, however, was about 10 percent faster than the new 5c in this test. The iPhone 5s score was six times that of the score of the iPhone 4s.
24 The Complete Guide to the iPhone 5s & the iPhone 5c
We saw some big diƊerences using GFXBench 2.7’s T-Tex C24Z16 1080p oƊscreen test. The iPhone 5s was able to push 25fps, more than 3.5 times the number of frames as the iPhone 5c. In this test, the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 scores were identical. The iPhone 4s couldn’t manage even 3fps. The T-Rex onscreen test, which runs at the native resolution of the device, had all the iPhones displaying higher framerates. The iPhone 5s, which scored 37fps, was just shy of three times as fast as the 5c’s 13fps. The iPhone 5 was 1fps faster than the 5c. In the less-taxing Eqypt test from GFXBench 2.5, the iPhone 5s was still signiĂcantly faster than the 5c and iPhone 5, but it didn’t break through the 2x barrier. And Android phones scored similarly to the iPhone 5 and 5c in the onscreen Egypt tests. OƊscreen, the HTC One and the Samsung S4 were 10fps faster than the 5 and 5c, but around 15fps slower than the iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 5s is almost three times faster
The iPhone 5s is surprisingly long-lived. Clocking in at over 11 hours in our video-looping test, the 5s lasted nearly 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 5 running iOS 7. The iPhone 5c lasted an impressive 10 hours 19 minutes. Comparing these results to those of some of the Android competition, the Samsung Galaxy S4 made it to 7 hours in the same tests, while the HTC One lasted just 6 hours 44 minutes. The iPhone 5s was not able to unseat our top battery performer, the Motorola Razr Maxx, which lasted 13 hours 28 minutes in our video-looping battery test.

Feature: Say hello to Siri
Say hello to
Get into a conversation with your mobile phone
lthough the iPhone 5s sports a faster processor and Ăngerprint scanner, and the 5c a bold new design, the feature that everyone is still talking about is Siri. Siri enables you to speak commands to your phone and have it do your bidding. You activate Siri by holding down the Home button on the iPhone itself, or by holding down the control button on your wired or wireless headset. Siri is faster and more reliable than ever with iOS 7. The iPhone’s voice-recognition feature works by recording your voice and sending it to a server that interprets what you’ve said and returns plain text. If you don’t have an internet connection, Siri won’t work. Siri is a massive leap forward over old fashioned speech recognition. This used to require a strict vocabulary and couldn’t do very much. Worse still, for non-Americans, voice recognition struggled with European, Australian and other accents. Siri doesn’t require a strict vocabulary, and it’ll generally Ăgure out what you’re trying to say. That makes interacting with it seem much more natural. It also works pretty well with a range of accents, and has American, British and Australian settings, as well as French, German, Italian, Spanish and more. Siri is incredibly comprehensive. In addition to the Phone and Music apps, it’s tied in to Messages, Calendar, Reminders, Maps, Mail, Weather, Stocks, Clock, Contacts, Notes, and Safari. It’s also linked to Wolfram Alpha, the ‘computational knowledge engine’ that can provide answers to numerous factual questions, and Yelp, the directory of local businesses. The recent iOS 7 update to Siri also sees it capable of searching Twitter and adjusting Settings. Siri can also perform a web search for you – although it now uses Bing as the default search engine, asking Siri to “Google” something results in it using Google instead.
Siri doesn’t require a strict vocabulary, and it’ll generally figure out what you’re trying to say
Speaking your language GETTING STARTED WITH SIRI COULDN’T BE EASIER. Simply press and hold the Home button. The background will blur, you’ll hear a ‘ba-ding’ noise and ‘What can I help you with?’ appears on the screen. You should also see a wavy white line at the bottom of the screen. Simply speak your request into the phone and, when you’ve Ănished speaking, the white line turns into a round microphone icon and Siri will get
26 The Complete Guide to the iPhone 5s & the iPhone 5c
back to you with an answer. Sometimes it takes Siri a few moments to think about the answer, but it’s a lot faster in iOS 7. You can ask Siri all sorts of things, and the more you use it the more accurate it becomes. You soon become aware of just how useful it can be, and what its boundaries are. It’s great at working with text messages, but not so much with email (it’s a faƊ to enter both subjects and messages). It knows a lot about weather, restaurants, movies and football, but nothing about Formula One, for example. It is also hooked-up to the Maps application, so it can locate businesses, movie times, restaurants and bars near you. One of the great things about Siri is asking it to Ănd things in your local area. There are a few scenarios in which Siri truly excels. The first of those is when you’re in a hands-free scenario, mostly likely when driving a car. (The iPhone knows when you’re in a hands-free situation and becomes more chatty, reading text aloud that it might not if it knows you’re holding it in your hand.) Siri is also deeply integrated with the directions feature in Maps, and works as a fantastic voice-activated satnav. When you get a text message, you can instruct Siri to read the message, and it will. You can then tell it to reply to the message, dictate the entire message, have Siri read it back to you to confirm that it makes sense, and then send it. You can also ask Siri to read out your Mail messages and it’ll let you know who sent you a message and what the subject line is. There are still some gaps. Siri won’t read your emails to you and it’d be great if you could get it to read out whole books and web pages. And while iOS has the nifty NotiĂcation Centre, which gives you granular control over how diƊerent apps notify you about what’s going on, there’s no option to read alerts out loud when you’re in hands-free mode. A missed opportunity.
If you aren’t drIvIng, SIrI can StIll be uSeful. In fact, the feature proves that some tasks can be done much faster through speech
Getting better Siri can now access the iOS 7 Settings, which makes it much easier to quickly make changes. You can also ask it to search Twitter

Getting results Siri can hunt down business, movie and sport information, as well as answer general questions
than through clicking, tapping and swiping. It’s much easier to set an alarm or timer using Siri than it is to unlock your phone, Ănd the Clock app, and tap within the app. Just say, “Set a timer for three minutes,” and your phone begins to count down until your tea is ready. “Set an alarm for 5am” does what you’d expect, instantly. “Remind me to record my favourite show” and “Note that I need to take my suit to the cleaners” work, too. These are short bursts of data input that can be handled quickly by voice, and we’ve found they work well. It’s also much faster to ask Siri to access settings than it is to dive through the menu. You can just say “Change wallpaper” rather than opening Settings and tapping Wallpaper. You will soon become impressed by Siri’s ability to understand the context of conversations. It doesn’t always work, but when it does, it’s magical. We asked Siri for suggestions for places to have lunch and it provided us with a list of nearby restaurants that serve lunch. Of course, talking to your phone is not much diƊerent from talking on your handset. It’s not appropriate in all contexts. If, for example, you’re quietly reading in the library and need to set a reminder, you should use the Reminders app, not Siri. And if you’re out in public, well, you can use Siri, but you do risk people looking at you funny. Apple’s integration of Wolfram Alpha with Siri is a smart move. If you need answers to factual questions, such as the speed of light or the number of days until Christmas, the answer engine can provide the solution.
It doesn’t always work. But when it does, it’s utterly magical
While Siri getS the bulk of the iPhone feature hyPe, another speech-related technology may prove to be more important
and a bigger boost to user productivity. On the keyboard you’ll see a new

button in the bottom row, to the left of the spacebar, with the image of a microphone on it. Tap this button and the iPhone will transcribe whatever you say. It sends the results over the internet to a server that analyses your speech and converts it into text. We were impressed at just how fast the results came back, especially over Wi-Fi. And they were generally accurate. To get the most out of dictation, you’ll need to start thinking in punctuation. For example, to construct a decent email message, we might say, “Dan. Comma. New paragraph. What do you think about writing a review of iOS numeral Ăve. Question mark. New paragraph. Let me know what you think. Exclamation point.” However, it works. Part of Siri’s charm isn’t in its feature set (which is still hit and miss), but it’s personable nature. Siri feels a lot less robotic than other voice-activated technology. Even when Siri gets out of its depth and doesn’t know what to do, it’s hard to feel too frustrated. And you can joke around with Siri. Apple has spent a lot of time providing Siri with a range of comebacks to joke questions (many geeky by nature). Try telling Siri you love it, or use common catchphrases such as “Who’s your daddy” or “Who let the dogs out?” These are constantly being updated, too – for example, a recent one is to keep saying “Okay Glass” (the phrase used to activate a rival product made by Google), Siri starts to get annoyed. Siri is by no means perfect, and occasionally it can mistranslate what you’re saying, either transcribing the wrong message or Ănding the wrong result from Contacts. But it gets better the more you use it, and the more useful it becomes. And it’s fun! Siri is one of the most entertaining aspects of the iPhone, so be sure to hold down the Home button and try it out.

iPhone apps Our picks from the App Store gems…
he iPhone is a fantastic device, but in many ways itÕs the apps that really separate it from the other smartphones out there. Think of something youÕd like to be able to do and thereÕs almost certainly an iPhone app that can do it. Another point of diﬀerence is that Apple rigorously checks each app submitted by developers for integrity and adherence to its rigid design- and performance guidelines. Thus, there are plenty of just-for-fun apps, but also thousands of genuinely useful, entertaining and engaging ones. Here, we select some of our favourites.
Infnity Blade III Price: £4.99 Infnity Blade is, in a word, stunning. The visuals are beautifully drawn, but more creatively designed and varied than in the frst (also excellent) instalments. There are loads of great-looking levels, such as a melancholy Japanese courtyard, in which droplets of rain run down the ‘camera’ from time to time. This is the frst 64 bit-capable app that really shows what the iPhone 5s is capable of: full-screen anti-aliasing and bloom lighting efects, along with high-resolution shadows and refections. Superb!

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Price: £13.99 XCOM fuses turn-based ground missions with real-time base building, squad recruitment and research of hi-tech ways to combat an escalating alien invasion of Earth. The big surprise is that the entire Xbox console game is here, and doesn’t feel any the worse for it. In fact, the base management aspect of XCOM feels better-suited to the swipes and taps of touchscreens than it ever did on a TV or monitor. This fully fedged console game shows how far the iPhone has come.
Limbo Price: £2.99 Limbo is a lovely platform game rendered in shadowy, semi-focused silhouette (German Expressionism is the usual reference point), yet from this austere palette the designers have painted something truly sumptuous. The controls are so simple that the game never has to tell you what to do. You simply press anywhere onscreen, then lean your fnger in the direction you want to go. Austere, melancholy, yet often hilarious, Limbo is a work of art. A touching and haunting game.
Price: 69p Racing is one area in which the iPhone with its motion controls utterly excels. Gameloft’s Asphalt series has always led the pack, and its new Asphalt 8 Airborne game certainly doesn’t disappoint. The graphics are spectacular, with frenetic onscreen action packed with sparks and fying metal. The game itself is big, dumb and fun. But it’s simple to pick up and play and hard to put down. This is one game you shouldn’t miss if you want to show of your iPhone and have some fun.
Price: 69p It’s nice to see that not every graphically intense game has to be a mash of cars, bullets and explosions. Lili is a wonderful role-playing adventure game set in a visually stunning environment. Lili has to explore the island of Geos, interact with locals and solve puzzles. This is a particularly good game to show of the iPhone because it’s not as frenetic as other games, and can casually showcase its graphical power. It’s nice to see that not every top-fight game has to involve racing cars and shooting guns.
Call of Duty: Strike Team Price: £4.99 The motion- and touch controls of the iPhone don’t lend themselves to the twitchy action of shooters as much as other games. But Call of Duty: Strike Team blends shooting action with top-down strategy to create a unique experience. Strike Team is graphically special, too, with stunning visual explosions and fre fghts. Strike Team manages to blend the best of Call of Duty with the unique touchscreen controls of the iPhone. Defnitely one to buy.

Tutorial: PC-free setup
Setting up your iPhone 5s or 5c for the frst time Get your new iPhone up and running without a PC or Mac YOU’VE FINALLY GOT YOUR HANDS ON THE brand-new iPhone 5s and now it’s time to get it set up and ready for use. The excitement of buying an iPhone has, over the years, been tempered by the fact that to get your iPhone up and running you were ﬁrst required to plug your phone into a computer. Whether you stood in line for two weeks to get your hands on one, or pre-ordered for the iPhone to be delivered to your house, the rush of delight was often held in check by the necessity to wait until iTunes told you that your shiny new iPhone was ready. Your iPhone no longer needs to be physically connected to a computer for it to work. As you might expect from Apple, the process is simple and quick; about the most technically diﬃcult part is inserting the nano SIM card into your iPhone. However, in typical Apple style a SIM tray pin is included in the box to make this task even easier. We’ll assume that you already have all the boring stuﬀ such as your phone price plan sorted out, and that you have unboxed and inserted the SIM card into your iPhone. From here on in getting started is no more than a ﬁve-minute process. Wire-free setup is a breeze, and all you have to do is follow our simple steps to make sure that you and your phone are ready to go as quickly as possible. After that, there’s a whole world of calling, texting, tweeting, internet browsing and taking photos, as well as all the apps to enjoy on your new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c.

Tutorial: Wireless sync
Wireless synching of your iPhone to iTunes Completely cut the cord between your iPhone and computer SYNCHING AN IPHONE AND ITUNES USED to mean that you had to plug your iPhone into your Mac or PC and either sit and watch the progress bar or leave it and pop back whenever you thought it might be ready. Happily, there is now a better solution to synching your iPhone. Now you can keep your iPhone and iTunes account on your PC or Mac completely in tune wirelessly. No more hunting around for that white cable. Never again will you have to scrabble around under your desk to try to plug the USB cable into your computer. Wireless synching works when both your iPhone and computer are connected to the same wireless network and when your iPhone is connected to a power source. You’ll have to keep your computer on and running iTunes, too. This means you can leave your iPhone charging overnight and wake up to fully synched iPhone and iTunes. The more content you’ve purchased the longer it will take, but wireless sync covers everything: applications, music, bookmarks, books, contacts calendars, movies, photos, notes, documents and ringtones are all synched wirelessly over your network. When your iPhone is connected to a power source and on the Wi-Fi network it shows up just as it would, were it plugged into your computer through a USB cable. This means you can change settings and other options wirelessly, too. Ironically, you have to plug your iPhone into your computer to enable wireless synching but, after that, it’s all wire-free.

Wired first If you have loads of apps, music, photos and videos to sync with your iPhone, it’s best to do so over USB before going fully wireless. This makes subsequent syncs much smaller and faster. Once you’ve got all your stuff synched up the incremental additions will be smoother
7 Sync music If you have a large music collection you may fnd that your iPhone gets flls up fast. Click on the Music tab to choose which playlists to add. You should also consider adding the iTunes Match service (as outlined on page 108).
8 Wireless speeds It’s worth noting that the speed of your sync can be afected by other trafc on the network. So, if you can, avoid running a sync when you’re surfng the web.

Tutorial: Setting up iCloud
Setting up and confguring iCloud Get everything in sync and stored safely online with iCloud iCLOUD IS A SET OF SERVICES THAT APPLE oﬀers free to all its customers. Signing up for iCloud gives you a free email address, and keeps your contact- and calendar information synched across several devices. It also backs up your iPhone with ease. iCloud securely stores all your music, photos, documents and apps and allows you to automatically download them whenever and wherever you are. The best thing about the iCloud service is no synching is required – everything just happens automatically. Buy an app on your iPad and it’s automatically sent to your iPhone. Similarly, if you download a new album on your iPhone, it’s ready and waiting for you on your iPad. It works seamlessly and invisibly in the background. It’s not just for music and apps, though, as iCloud ensures that your email, contacts and calendars are all kept up-to-date, too. It doesn’t matter on which of your devices the change is made, every single one will simply update itself. You get 5GB of free storage, but as apps, books, music and TV shows don’t count toward this space it’s a generous allowance. If you need more space you can buy it. You can also back up your iPhone to iCloud for an added level of protection. No matter what happens, your data will be safe. iCloud also includes Photo Stream that immediately pushes any pictures you take on your iPhone to your iPad or Mac. There’s a lot more to iCloud and it’s sure to be greatly expanded.

Tutorial: Get info with Siri
Finding information with Siri the digital assistant Use Siri to help you find out information and a whole host of other things THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT THE FEATURE THAT impresses a lot of people in Siri is its ability to send messages as texts or emails and amazingly read them back to you. However, there’s a lot more to the voice-recognition technology than initally meets the eye. As if Siri wasn’t impressive enough at sending dictated messages, you can also use it to perform a host of other tasks. One of the most impressive is how you can use it to ﬁnd out things. Much like the computers you see in science-ﬁction, such as Star Trek or 2001: A Space Odyssey, Siri uses natural language to communicate. It used to be the case that Siri could search for business information only in the US, but the latest update has brought a wealth of business, sports, movie and general trivia information to Siri users in the UK, and iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c owners can access all of this at a touch of the Home button. Answers to basic questions such as ‘how many litres in a gallon?’ is provided through a link with Wolfram Alpha. But thanks to some of the other technologies built into the iPhone, you can use it for other information as well. For instance, if you use the Find My Friends service, you can ask Siri where is one of your contacts and it will show you where they are. Want to know what the weather is like anywhere in the world? Siri can tell you. This tutorial will show you exactly how to get the most out of Siri and what sort of questions to ask.

Tutorial: Control Centre
Quickly access features with Control Centre Quickly access key features on your iPhone
CONTROL CENTRE IS A NEW FEATURE introduced in iOS 7. It replaces the old Multitasking bar controls and oﬀers a huge range of features. You access the Control Centre by dragging your ﬁnger up from the bottom of the display. The controls pull in like a transparent overlay covering the home screen or whatever app you have open. You can open Control Centre in pretty much any app or part of the iPhone. Some apps that rely on similar gestures, such as maps and games, may require you to swipe up twice: once to reveal the handle for Control Centre, and a second time to reveal Control Centre. One thing that’s worth noting is that you can access Control Centre from the Lock screen, although you have to drag your ﬁnger up from the very middle of the screen (just above the Home button). If you drag up from the side of the display you’ll access the camera instead. Control Centre can be a bit daunting at ﬁrst. Don’t worry, though, this tutorial will explain how it all works. The Control Centre is divided into ﬁve main parts. These enable you to access Settings, Brightness, Music controls, AirDrop and AirPlay and shortcuts to apps and features.

Tutorial: Notifcation Centre
Getting to grips with the Notifcation Centre Notification Centre is the perfect way to see your alerts and messages
PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF iOS NOTIFICATIONS could become a bit of a pain. The single message windows that popped up and interrupted whatever you were doing were distracting. Halfway through reading a web page it would suddenly pause and you’d get a message that someone had just checked in on Foursquare, or that you’d been mentioned on Twitter. Not to mention that if you had a lot of apps with notiﬁcations it could take ages to wade through and dismiss them all. It made using your iPhone a bit of a pain, if we’re honest. With Notiﬁcation Centre and iOS 7 all this has changed and now your iPhone experience is much more streamlined. The Notiﬁcation Centre lets you see far more detail about exactly what’s going on, and you can get to it from anywhere at any time. You can happily continue to do what you were doing, be that watching a movie, playing a game or editing a document, and your other apps won’t get in the way. You still get to see what notiﬁcations are coming in, but it’s on your terms. The Notiﬁcation Centre doesn’t have to be restricted to standard messages, though. It will display the weather forecast and – if you’re interested – stock prices, too. All the notiﬁcations are kept hidden away until you need them. Don’t worry, you can still get back all those old-style notiﬁcations if you wish. You’ll ﬁnd out how in the next tutorial.

Tutorial: Notifcation settings
Managing your notifcation settings Keep yourself in charge of what notifications you get from each of your apps THE ADVANTAGE OF NOTIFICATION CENTRE in iOS is that all alerts are kept in one place. It’s a simple, easy-to-access part of the iPhone operating system that makes getting messages and notiﬁcations supremely easy. Swipe your ﬁnger down the screen and there they all are. With the addition of iCloud support you can easily see all your appointments and mail in one place. Text messages or iMessages can all be read and assessed for importance at a glance. In short, it’s a truly eﬀective way of seeing all your updates in one simple screen. The only problem with this approach, however, is there are so many apps that want to send you alerts and notiﬁcations that the Notiﬁcation Centre itself can become overwhelmed. Too much information to scroll through and the usefulness of iOS’ Notiﬁcation Centre is gone. Happily, you can manage how your notiﬁcations will appear and which apps will be able to use them. Want to use an app, but not allow it to send you notiﬁcations? That’s not a problem. Even better, you can decide what type of notiﬁcations you receive, be they banners or old-style alerts. The Notiﬁcation Centre is based entirely around your preferences. Spend a short time following this tutorial and you will get the most from Notiﬁcation Centre and always get the alerts you want most. Each and every app is conﬁgurable to match your speciﬁc needs.

Tutorial: Using iMessage
Getting the most from the new iMessage service iMessage lets you send text, images and video for free to other iOS-connected friends WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT IF YOU DIDN’T have to pay for text messages? Well, now you don’t. iMessage is built into iOS and allows you to send free messages to anyone else on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. You can send pictures and video, as well as just plain text messages, as long as the intended recipients are running iOS. The best part is there’s no setup involved. Your iPhone will automatically detect whether the person has a device running iOS and send the message to them over iMessage. If they don’t have iMessage the phone will simply send them a standard text message. You can send group messages, so if you need to let everyone in the family know what’s going on, just add them to the conversation and type away. You can see when the other person is typing a reply and there are delivery and read receipts so you know whether or not your message got through. All the messages are encrypted with the latest security software so there’s no chance your conversations can be read by anyone else. Also, thanks to the Siri voice-recognition system, you can dictate messages direct to your iPhone. This makes sending those short messages even faster. Siri is surprisingly accurate, too. Don’t worry, you can still use the keyboard if talking to your phone makes you feel a little bit self-conscious. Here we’ll show you how to set up iMessages and start sending free messages to all your iOS device-owning friends and family.

Tutorial: Find My Friends
Keep track of people with the Find My Friends app Instantly know where everybody is with Find My Friends on the iPhone WANT TO BE ABLE TO FIND YOUR FRIENDS no matter where they are in the world, day or night? It might sound a bit creepy, but the Find My Friends application can really be very useful and a bit of fun, too. By utilising the GPS that’s built into iPhones, it’s possible for you to see exactly where your friends are on a map. Say, you’ve gone shopping with some friends and have been split up, you can easily ﬁnd your way back to each other. Although it might sound a bit strange to be tracked, or to track your friends and family, you have to allow people to follow you. Likewise, they have to allow you to track them. It’s worth noting that you can turn oﬀ tracking at any time. Best of all you, can set up temporary tracking and invite loads of people to see exactly where you are. This means that they can see your location, but only for a given period of time. This is great if you’re having a party or similar and need people to be able to easily ﬁnd you. In conjunction with Siri you can use Find My Friends to let you know where people are, too. Simply ask Siri where is the person and it will use Find My Friends to locate them. All this tracking can seem a bit like ‘Big Brother’, but you can turn it oﬀ easily and hide yourself away, whenever you choose. Naturally, as it’s using GPS, the Find My Friends app can use up plenty of battery power. Find out more about the app by reading on.

Using the Reminders app to stay on top of things Never forget a thing with the Reminders app on your iPhone USING YOUR iPHONE FOR REMINDERS and to-do lists is a great idea. You’re likely to have your iPhone with you at all times so it just makes sense. The rather aptly named Reminders app is here to help you with all your to-do lists. The app itself is built into iOS and has some neat touches. Integration with Siri is just one of the great features of Reminders. It takes merely a few seconds to set up a new reminder using just a push of the Home button and your voice. Additionally, you can use the GPS to activate reminders when you leave or arrive at certain places. So, for example, your phone could remind you to pick up some milk on the way home as you leave work. Naturally, you can set your own time-sensitive reminders, too, and if you have a lot of reminders you can easily search through them. Reminders can be sorted in a list or by date and you can see a calendar view of all your reminders a month at a time. If you’re using the iCloud service all your reminders can be synched across devices. If you set a reminder on your iPad it will show on your iPhone and vice versa . Thanks to the Notiﬁcation Centre your reminders will show up even on a locked iPhone, so you can see at a glance what you need to remember. If you’re cursed with the forgetful gene, have no fear, the Reminders app is here. You’ll never forget your wedding anniversary again. Here we show you how to use it.

Tutorial: Sending Messages with Siri
Sending emails and text messages with Siri Siri understands spoken commands and can perform many tasks SIRI IS ONE OF THE OUTSTANDING features of the iPhone. Siri can understand your voice and act upon your instructions. It’s not just simple voice recognition, however, as you can get Siri to perform all manner of tasks for you. Apple is keen to point out Siri isn’t a completely foolproof system, but it’s pretty good. There are some restrictions that mean Siri can’t always work. You have to have a 3G/4G or Wi-Fi data connection to use the service. If you can’t connect, Siri just won’t be able to do anything. This is because it needs to connect to Apple’s servers for help with turning your voice into instructions. It might seem a bit odd talking to your phone, but when you get used to doing so it seems perfectly normal. If you still ﬁnd it uncomfortable speaking to your phone you can use the iPhone headphones or simply hold the phone to your ear to make Siri work. There have been a lot of examples of the fun you can have with Siri, but it can do some really interesting and useful things, too. On of the coolest features that Siri has is the ability to dictate and send messages to your contacts. You can use email or text, and all you have to do is open Siri and ask it to send a message for you. It’s a lot easier than typing out messages by hand. This easy-to-follow tutorial shows you exactly how to start sending messages with Siri.

Using Safari for iPhone – the ultimate web browser Learn how to use gestures and pages in Safari for iPhone
AS WITH APPLE’S DESKTOP COMPUTERS, Safari is the default browser for the iPhone – and on this platform it oﬀers the best mobile browsing experience we know. It oﬀers a gestural touch-based interface, with ﬂick-scrolling, pinchzooming and links that are activated with a tap. Safari for iPhone oﬀers most of the features found on a desktop computer, including support for multiple pages. Pages are similar to a desktop browser’s tabs, enabling you to simultaneously browse multiple sites. The number of active pages is indicated by the icon second from the right on the toolbar at the bottom of the page. Clicking on this stacked pages icon brings up an option to create a new web page and navigate to another website. You can also share web pages via email or AirDrop (see page 152), or add them to a Reading List that downloads pages for oﬄine viewing, and also shares them with other iOS and Mac computers using iCloud. As with Safari’s desktop cousin, the address- and search ﬁelds at the top of the screen move out of sight when you scroll down a page. Here we show you how to get started with Safari, working with gestures, pages and web video. Once you start interacting directly with web content on the iPhone’s screen, you’ll be hooked. In fact, you may well ﬁnd the combination of your computer’s browser and a mouse starts to feel rather archaic by comparison. Here’s how to get started with Safari.

Tutorial: Safari Reader
Using Safari Reader on web pages Safari Reader makes websites and blog posts much easier to read SAFARI IS ONE OF THE BEST MOBILE WEB browsers, if not the best mobile web browser. The fast and accurate way it renders pages is impressive. The browser is no doubt helped by the super-fast chip inside the iPhone 5s, but it’s speedy even with the 5c’s A6. With 4G internet connectivity becoming more commonplace, the faster your browser can render a page the better. One of the problems with having a smaller screen is some website designs make it diﬃcult to see the content you want to get at. This isn’t too much of an issue where you can pinch-to-zoom or double-tap on text to get a closer view, but it can still be a pain. To get a better view of the main body text on web pages, Apple has included in Safari a feature called Reader. Reader automatically cuts out all the design elements of a page and just gives you the text and key images. Reader is great for longer blog posts and news stories. You can enlarge the text to make it even easier to read, too. In the Reader view you also have quick access to other sharing options, such as Reading List, Tweet and Print. The Reader function might not work on every web page, and you’ll have to wait for the page to fully load before you can take advantage of this feature, but it makes reading on the web a much more pleasant experience. Read on to find out how to get the best out of the new Reader feature and make reading online news and blog posts at lot simpler.

Tutorial: Viewing and editing contacts
Using Contacts to view and edit your address book How to search, view and edit contacts on your iPhone LIKE ITS MAC EQUIVALENT, CONTACTS FOR iPhone is a simple application, relying largely on data you send it via an iTunes or - increasingly iCloud. Contacts can also be synchronised with a variety of services (including Google Contacts and Yahoo Address Book), along with information from Address Book for Mac OS X and Outlook 2003 or 2007 for Windows. It’s possible to add new contacts (which can, of course, later be sent back to your computer the next time you do a sync), and you can edit details for existing contacts, updating data and creating new ﬁelds. It’s also possible to amend the sort order of your contacts. If you prefer the list order to be based on ﬁrst names rather than surnames, select Mail, Contacts, Calendars in the Settings app and set Sort Order to First, Last. Note that you can also amend a second option, Display Order, to Last, First. This makes names in the app (both in the contacts list and individual contact pages) display like ‘Jobs Steve’ rather than ‘Steve Jobs’. Neither of these options is permanent; if you want to revert to the default setting, simply go to the Settings app and reselect it. Having a good Contacts list on the iPhone makes the whole experience much better, the contacts appear in your emails, messages, and integrate with other apps such as Twitter and Facebook. Also, you can use them with apps such as Find My Friends, so it’s a good idea to keep Contacts up to date.

Tutorial: Create and edit Calendar events
Adding and editing events in the Calendar app Define locations, times, alerts and notes for events THE iPHONE HAS A FANTASTIC CALENDAR app that is much more powerful than those you’d use on other phones. It becomes especially useful if you hook it up to other iOS devices and your computer using Apple’s free iCloud synchronisation service. However, the iPhone’s Calendar app isn’t reliant on being physically synched with a computer. You can add new events and amend existing ones on your iPhone. These are then sent over Wi-Fi using iCloud to your other iOS devices – no computer is required. The process for adding a new event from scratch is pretty straightforward but, when it comes to editing events, it’s worth noting one of the options in the Mail, Contacts, Calendars section of the Settings app. Scroll down to Calendars and you’ll ﬁnd the Default Calendar option. Tap this to see a list of the calendars on your iPad. Select one of them and it will be used as the default in the Calendars app when you create a new event. The setting can be overridden on a per-event basis, but it’s a good timesaver to have your most-used calendar as the default option. You’ll ﬁnd that all the screengrabs in this tutorial are in portrait mode. This is the most common orientation for the iPhone, but the Calendar app also works in landscape mode, which oﬀers a diﬀerent view to the vertical mode and is well worth checking out.

Tutorial: The Music app
Using the Music app Get to grips with the Music app on your iPhone THE MUSIC APP ON THE iPHONE IS YOUR place to go to play, and listen, to all the tracks you have on your iPhone. As you might expect the Music app is where you’ll ﬁnd all your audio ﬁles. In the Music app you’ll ﬁnd all your iTunes songs, albums, playlists and more. It’s not just all your music either, because it’s here that you’ll also ﬁnd audiobooks. Podcasts used to be in the Music app, but now have their own app on the App Store appropriately named Podcasts. Although the visual style of the app has changed, the functionality hasn’t altered all that much. If you’ve used the Music or iPod app on a previous iPhone or iOS device, you’ll probably not notice the changes – they’re that subtle in implementation. Getting to your favourite music is easy, with options to create your own playlists on the phone or have the Music app create some for you with Genius Playlists. With album artwork you can use the coverﬂow view to swipe through your albums by cover. Coverﬂow works only in the landscape orientation, but is a great way of moving quickly through your albums. As well as helping you manage all the music you own, there’s also a quick link to the iTunes Store to let you get your hands on even more. The Music app is simple to use, but there are some nifty features that you should also get to know. So, whether you want to hear the same song over and over again, or shuﬄe your songs to add a bit of variety, or just have Genius go to work and create some creative playlists for those long journeys to and from work or in the gym, this tutorial will help you get to grips with the app.

Tutorial: iTunes Match
Listen to all your music using iTunes Match Stream every song you have in any iTunes with iTunes Match ONE OF THE BIGGEST TECH TRENDS OF recent years is the shift to cloud computing, where you save data, and then access it, from a remote server rather than on your own machine. Naturally, Apple has put this to excellent use in iTunes, allowing users to store their entire music library ‘in the cloud’ and access it from any device without using up memory. Apple’s service, called iTunes Match, scans your music library and either matches the track with a high-quality version from the iTunes Store or, if it doesn’t have the track in its database, uploads your version to cloud. Once complete, you can stream your tracks from any device (providing you have an active internet connection) without having to download them to that device. If you want a hard copy of a song on one of your machines, Match also lets you download it from the cloud free of charge. The best part is that you can store up to 25,000 tracks, transforming your humble iPhone into a serious music archive. What’s more, you can access your songs from up to 10 diﬀerent iTunes-enabled devices. Unsurprisingly, the service doesn’t come for free – it will set you back £21.99 a year. However, it’s easy to set up, easy to use and very versatile.

Tutorial: Using the Weather app
Getting to grips with the Weather app The Weather app might seem simple, but it’s got some tricks up its sleeve KNOWING WHAT THE WEATHER IS GOING to be like has been one of the more mundane activities that modern technology has had a hand in solving. Finding out whether you should pack shorts or waterproof clothing is probably more important than we’d care to admit. Boring as the subject of the weather may be, there are a staggering number of weather apps available on the App Store. The Weather app is one of the original set of applications Apple shipped with the iPhone and it remains to this day, despite the alternatives. The Weather app is a basic beast at heart, but it can be useful if you are travelling about, giving long-term forecasts and hourly updates no matter where you are in the world. Thanks to Siri, accessing the forecasts that the Weather app provides is now even easier and very quick. Need to know what the weather is likely to be doing in New York for the next few days? Simply ask Siri. Set up the Weather app to show you what the temperature is in a host of places all over the globe. Have either Fahrenheit or Celsius as the unit of measurement and quickly get to your local forecasts, too. Everything you could need weather-wise is contained within this one simple app. In this tutorial we’ll show you how to get the most out of the Weather app and reveal all about its inner workings.

Tutorial: Taking photos
Getting the best results from the iPhone’s cameras Always get the best shot from your iPhone’s camera
APPLE MADE MANY IMPROVEMENTS TO THE iPhone when it designed the 5s, and one of the parts of the phone that received a major overhaul was the camera. Not content with the 8Mp sensor found in the iPhone 5 and 5c, Apple included a dual-LED for better low-light performance. This means that as well as a having a much better chip and lens for capturing images, the ﬂash on the iPhone 5s is uniquely good at snapping indoor and outdoor images. All this and the new, more powerful A7 processor combine to give speedy performance and improved image quality. It used to be that a mobile phone’s camera was good enough for a few snaps when the quality of the picture wasn’t all that important, but with the iPhone 5s the image quality is just as good as some more expensive compact cameras, and it’s pushing a fair few digital SLRs for picture quality as well. Using the iPhone 5s as a camera needn’t mean you have to make any compromises, though, as the hardware and software combine perfectly to help you get the best shot in any situation. Getting to grips with the camera app is easy, and getting quick shots is simple. You can, however, take your photography to the next level and get impressive pictures from the iPhone without much eﬀort at all. Note that many of our tips here also apply to the iPhone 5c.

Tutorial: Editing Photos
Editing your photos on the iPhone 5s and 5c Once youÕve taken your pictures you can easily edit them to make them even better ONCE YOU’VE TAKEN A FEW PICTURES and, if you’re using iCloud, sent them to your Photo Stream for safekeeping, you might just want to leave them there. However, no matter how good a camera you possess, some judicious editing can always improve the ﬁnal result. You might want to make the colours and contrast in your picture stand out. Sometimes a small crop can make all the diﬀerence to a photo and turn a good picture into a fantastic one. If you’ve taken a picture of friends or family at a party and they all have the dreaded red-eye, you’ll probably want to get rid of that, too. Your phone itself is a powerful image-editing tool. The Retina display also helps you to crop accurately and to apply precise edits, thanks to the fantastic detail it provides. The iPhone lets you make your photographs look better with a single tap. It can also help you with some of the usual pitfalls of photography. If you take a shot of people with the ﬂash then sometimes they’ll have red-eye. To help you make your subjects look a little less like they’ve been possessed by the devil you can quickly and simply remove red-eye. As well as this, there’s a crop tool that lets you cut out the best bit of a photo and reframe your shot for a better result. If you want to take image editing further you can download any number of apps to help you do more with your pictures, too.

Viewing photos as Years, Collections and Moments View your photographs using the new iOS 7 Photos app WITH iOS 7 (INCLUDED ON THE iPHONE 5s and iPhone 5c) comes a whole new way of organising your photo collection. Images are now grouped together by Years, Collections, Moments and Photos. In Years view the photos are tiny thumbnails and you can see all your photos taken over the years. The pictures are too small to enjoy in this mode, but thanks to the iPhone’s Retina display you can roughly determine what groups of images are about. Tapping on an area of photos in the Years view takes you into Collections. These are groups of photographs based upon a certain time and place. Above each group of images will be the name of the place and rough date that they were taken. Tap again to go to Moments – groups of pictures all taken at the same place and time. If you went on holiday to Paris, for example, the Collection would be the holiday and the moment would be the Eiﬀel tower, the Louvre, eating snails in a restaurant and so on. You bounce back up from Photos to Moments, then Collections and ﬁnally back to Years using the corresponding icon in the top-left of the display. It may seem a bit of an overload at ﬁrst, especially the Years view, but you quickly get used to zooming in and out of pictures.

RECORDING GOODQUALITY VIDEO USED to mean you needed to lug around loads of heavy equipment. Now, though, instead of carrying large digital video cameras, you can record HD video clips right on the iPhone 5s and 5c. The improvements Apple made to the 5s’ lens and chip didn’t just improve the stills performance, it also boosted video quality, too. Recording 1080p high-deﬁnition video you capture brilliant details and realistic colours. The iPhone is not only a competent stills camera, it’s also an excellent video camera. Recording video with the iPhone is incredibly simple and once you’ve mastered it you’ll be making your own blockbusters. Just remember that recording at 1080p quality will quickly consume storage space. There’s no way to reduce the resolution either so you’ll always be shooting at top-quality. It’s also worth noting that because iMovie is available for the iPhone you can edit your movies on the go. The iPhone 5s and 5c can become a camera and editing suite, all in one. The video-camera app is very basic, but you do get the option to use the ﬂash as a light to illuminate scenes where there’s not much light. Other than that, it’s simply a case of tapping to record and getting on with it. You can now snap photos while recording video, too.

Tutorial: Tweeting photos and locations
Sharing locations and pictures from your iPhone Tweet your photos and location from your phone without opening a Twitter app
TWITTER MIGHT NOT BE TO ALL TASTES, but its popularity is unquestionable. The way that Twitter has exploded in popularity worldwide could not have been predicted by anyone. As well as the 140 characters of text that make up a tweet, Twitter is used amazingly well as a photo-sharing site. When an American Airlines jet crash-landed in the Hudson River, it was Twitter that got the pictures out there quickest. Images from all over the world at sporting events and political rallies come through Twitter more and more often. The vast majority of these images have been snapped with a phone camera. Using Twitter on an iPhone is even easier than ever with the integration of Twitter services in the iOS settings. You can now take a picture and tweet it within a matter of seconds using just the Camera app – no need for any other Twitter software. As well as sharing images on Twitter, you can also now share your location more easily. Location sharing might not be to all tastes, but if you have a small band of trustworthy followers, it can be fun. Location sharing is also a good way to show oﬀ to your friends when you’re somewhere special, such as an Apple store. Of course, you could always do photo- and location sharing through the Twitter app, but the integrated features make doing both of these things much simpler. Follow this quick guide to tweeting your photos and locations from your iPhone.

Tutorial: Social media in contacts
Efortlessly merging your social-media contacts Combine Twitter and Contacts data to automatically update your contacts
WE SHARE MORE DATA ABOUT OURSELVES than ever before. Social-media applications hold plenty of details about us, and this means that sharing information is much easier. In many cases you still have to manually enter contact information but, thankfully, that process is slowly becoming automated. Now that Twitter has been integrated into the system settings of iOS, you can combine Twitter friends with your contacts. This means that your iPhone can search through your Twitter friends and, where they match contacts in your address book, automatically add their Twitter username to the Contacts app. As well as this, your iPhone will drag across your friends’ avatars, so there’s consistency across social media and contacts apps. This also means that when they change their picture, this is reﬂected in your Contacts app. The other advantage to this close integration is that you can tweet your friends directly from the Contacts app. Simply find the person you want to send a message to and tap on their Twitter username. As you might expect, you can add location data and photos to the tweet before you send it. Here we’ll show you how to take your Twitter accounts and scan your friends to see if they are also in your address book. The ones that are can easily be merged to show their Twitter information in their Contacts entry. And all this takes only a few simple taps.

Tutorial: Apple Maps
Using Maps to navigate Using the Maps application you can navigate your way around with ease
IF YOU ARE FOREVER GETTING LOST, THEN the iPhone could prove to be a real lifesaver. It’s great at knowing where you are, even if you aren’t entirely sure. The powerful GPS inside your handset combines with local mobile phone reception towers to give incredibly accurate positioning. Apple has built its own mapping service and app, called Maps, and you can use it to ﬁnd local information, directions and even use it as a satnav in your car. The app, used in conjunction with the GPS capabilities of the iPhone, makes it incredibly simple to find where you are, and provide directions for you to make it from A to B as quickly as possible. You can map your journey by car, public transport or walking, and there are alternative routes for you to choose from, too. You can search around you for local businesses or, indeed, companies in any location. So if, for example, you need to find the nearest Post Oﬀice, garage or supermarket, you can use your iPhone to find it and then have it tell you the quickest route. Apple’s Maps app can show you the standard map view of your route or, if you prefer, it’ll show you the satellite view overhead. There’s also the option to get a hybrid view of the two together. You can even see the street view if it’s available, giving you a good idea of what your ﬁnal destination looks like. If you have an AirPrint-compatible printer, you can get hard copies of the map and, if the graphics get too much for you, it’s possible to see your journey in list view so that it’s just the instructions. Get mapping your routes on the iPhone using the following tutorial.

Tutorial: Using Flyover
Viewing a city from the air with Flyover The new Flyover mode in Maps enables you to view cities in 3D THE MAPS APP ON THE iPHONE 5s AND iPHONE 5c replaces Street View with Flyover. This is a fantastic new 3D eﬀect that enables you to ﬂy around photorealistic cities. As you pan and zoom around cities, you can switch to Satellite mode and get an accurate photographic top-down view of a location. With Flyover it’s also possible to rotate the view so you can see how buildings look from the side – it’s almost like ﬂying around a city (hence the name). Flyover is an incredibly impressive feature that can be found only on the iPhone. Accessing the Flyover mode couldn’t be easier: open Maps, switch to Satellite mode, zoom in and pan around. The technology behind it is pretty amazing: Apple has ﬂown helicopters and planes around all major cities, taking photographs of buildings from all angles. It’s then got designers to stitch those photographs on to 3D wireframe models of cities. The result is indistinguishable from real life. Flyover may not be the most practical feature (unless you plan on ﬂying around a city like Superman), but it is one of the best ways to show oﬀ the iPhone’s Retina Display. In this tutorial we’ll take a look at how to get the most out of Flyover.

Tutorial: AirPlay & AirDrop
How to use AirDrop and AirPlay Mirroring the iPhone display to a large-screen TV is easy with AirPlay THE iPHONE IS A POWERFUL HANDHELD device that enables you to view, edit and play many of the ﬁles you’d normally see on a computer. You can take photographs, watch videos, play music and create business documents, all from the palm of your hand. And although the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c both have a sharp Retina Display and an immaculate speaker, there are times when you want to send its audio or video to a dedicated device. Apple has a technology called AirPlay that enables you to do just this: you can play music wirelessly from your iPhone on an AirPlay speaker, or play video stored on your iPhone on a television set using an Apple TV. Into this powerful mix comes a new technology called AirDrop. AirDrop enables you to share ﬁles on your iPhone with any other iOS device in the local vicinity. Simply enable AirDrop, pick a photo, web page or other document and tap Share. You can then send it straight to your friend’s device. AirPlay works via Wi-Fi and other AirPlay-compatible devices – typically an AirPlay speaker and Apple TV inside your house. AirDrop uses both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and requires you and your friend to be in the same location and connected to the same Wi-Fi network. In this tutorial we’ll look at how to use AirDrop and AirPlay to share ﬁles from your iPhone.

Tutorial: Managing storage
Keep tabs on how much storage apps are using See which apps are using up the space on your phone
THE STORAGE CAPACITY OF THE iPHONE has risen over the years, but it’s still small by computer standards. Filling up an iPhone takes no time at all, especially with the video and music that you can so easily download from the iTunes Store. There is also now your iCloud account, which oﬀers only 5GB by default and needs to be managed. It’s not just the things like photos and videos that ﬁll up the storage space on your iPhone, though. As apps get more and more complex and do more and more, they balloon in size. It’s entirely possible to ﬁll up even a 64GB iPhone just with apps. It’s twice as easy to ﬁll up a 32GB iPhone, too. This would leave you no space for music, videos or any of the other fun stuﬀ. Thankfully, you can see exactly which applications are taking up the most space. This is great if you are running low on storage and need to dump some apps you don’t need or use. Remember that you can always re-download any of your apps. Deleting apps to make temporary space is easily done. The ability to back up your iPhone to iCloud is great for your phone security, and this storage can also be managed right on your iPhone. See how much of your allowance you are using and buy more space if you need it, all on the iPhone itself. Managing your precious storage space might seem a bit dull compared to all the other exciting things you could be doing on your iPhone, but you can do it easily by following this simple tutorial.

Final word: Jason Snell
Get in touch with the future A fingerprint-activated 64-bit supercomputer in your pocket. Jason Snell thinks we’re living in the future
hen I ﬁrst heard rumours about Touch ID, I thought it sounded like a gimmick: a feature that brings a frisson of living in a science-ﬁction future, but that probably won’t be useful in practice. After using it for a few days, though, I can say that once you start using Touch ID, it’s awfully hard to stop. Unlocking the phone with Touch ID is seamless. If I press the Home button and leave my ﬁnger resting on the button after the press, the phone just jumps to the home screen. And Apple’s software-design decisions around Touch ID are tasteful, not distracting. Is Touch ID security going to satisfy spies and handlers of classiﬁed material? No. Clever people have already demonstrated that, if you invest a large amount of time, money and materials, you can fake out the sensor. If you’re James Bond, do not rely on Touch ID to secure your purloined secrets. But, for the rest of us, the point of Touch ID is not to create unbreakable security against all attackers. It’s to make iPhones more secure overall by making it easier for users to lock their devices.
“Adding a fngerprint sensor was an audacious move by Apple”
Touch ID makes it much easier to unlock your phone - after a day or so, it became habitual for me. Touch ID also requires that you add a passcode or password, and what self-respecting iPhone 5s user would buy this phone and then never use the built-in ﬁngerprint sensor? As a result, I suspect that Touch ID will cause a much larger percentage of iPhone users to lock their phones, and that’s a good thing. Adding a ﬁngerprint sensor was an audacious move by Apple; this is weird, sci-ﬁ technology that could make the iPhone a laughing stock if it doesn’t work right. Not only does it work, but Apple has also shown great restraint in making the entire process feel normal. There are no bright animations or wacky sounds when Touch ID is in use. You’re unlocking your 64-bit pocket supercomputer with just a ﬁngerprint: you’ve got every reason to be excited.
