The Ten Most Asked Questions We Get About iOS 16 • What’s iOS 16 all about? We answer ten of your most-asked questions about the iPhone’s latest operating system.
New iPhones • Apple’s brand new iPhone 14 series is here, and they’re looking great.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
First Steps with Your iPhone • Here we show you the iPhone’s basics, such as the various buttons and ports on your iPhone, setting up the iPhone out of the box, setting up your Internet connection and email accounts, using the virtual keyboard, touchscreen gestures, Control Centre, the lock screen and more.
Buttons & Ports • The latest iPhones have a very similar control layout. They all have Face ID, whether it’s in a notch or the iPhone 14 Pro’s new Dynamic Island, they all have a side button, volume controls and a Lightning port. And, of course, they all have an excellent Retina display. Sizes may vary, but whatever phone you have, the screen is amazing. Let’s take a look at your iPhone’s controls.
Getting Set Up • If you’re setting up your new iPhone straight out of the box, follow this guide as we take you through the extremely important first time setup. Learn how to set up all the core functions of your iPhone, from switching it on for the first time to making your first phone call. Whichever model of iPhone you own, with our help you’ll soon be up and running.
Your Apple ID • If you don’t already have a working Apple ID, and you didn’t register one while setting up your iPhone, you should do so now. With it you can download applications from the App Store, use FaceTime, buy music and movies from iTunes and use many of the iPhone’s features and services. Without an Apple ID, you won’t come close to getting the most from your iPhone.
Face & Touch ID • iPhones with a top-to-bottom screen have Face ID. Most iPhones with a Home button have Touch ID. You probably set up this service during the initial setup, but here’s how to do it if you need help.
The Home Screen • The Home screen is at the heart of your iPhone. It’s through this screen that you open apps, organise them into folders, edit and use Home screen widgets and more. You can now use Widgets on the Home screen, among your app icons, and there’s an App Library which summarises your apps on one single screen. Follow this guide to master your iPhone’s Home screen.
Getting Online • The iPhone connects to the Internet automatically whenever you use the App Store, Mail, iTunes Store, Safari, YouTube or any other app that requires it. There are two ways of taking your iPhone online: via a Wi-Fi connection or a 3G/4G/5G mobile network. In this guide, we show you how to set up both, and also how to check your Wi-Fi signal strength.
Email Set-Up • Your iPhone’s Mail app can send and receive emails from all of your email accounts. It’s easy to set up and use with an iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL or Outlook email address. If you want to add your Internet Service Provider’s own email account, it is a little more complicated. Here we take you through setting up each type of email account on your Apple smartphone.
