I purposely have written this guide to be a little more casual and fun than what you expect from most iPhone manuals. The iPhone is a fun gadget, and any guide should be an equally fun read.

So Many Phones! What’s the difference?

iPhone SE? iPhone Pro? iPhone XR? What’s the difference!

There are several iPhone models available. If you look at them side-by-side the only thing that’s different (size aside) is the SE has a physical Home button on the front, and the others do not. Is that really the only difference? Not exactly. Let’s break it down, so you know exactly what you are buying. This is mainly going to look at the difference between the two most least expensive iPhones: the iPhone SE and iPhone XR

Size

If you are looking at the phone on display somewhere, then you’ll probably notice the size difference. The iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch display and the XR has a 6.1-inch display (the larger displace is partially because it has more room without a physical home button).

There’s also a thicker bezel up top on the iPhone SE (where the front camera is); the iPhone XR has a notch up top but is a nearly edge-to-edge display.

In terms of pixels per inch, however, they’re identical (326 pixels per inch); and both are using a LCD display.

Speed

If you think you are getting a slower phone because it’s cheaper then you are wrong!  The iPhone XR, which is a more expensive phone, actually has an older chip (it’s called the A12 Bionic). The iPhone SE is using the same chip (it’s called the A13 Bionic) that’s in those pricey, top of the line, iPhone 11 Pro’s. The A13 is actually up to 20x faster than the A12 chip.

Touch ID vs. Face ID

The iPhone SE uses your fingerprint to unlock your phone; the iPhone XR and Pro models use Face ID (i.e. facial recognition) to unlock the phone. Apple has made convincing claims that facial recognition is far more secure, but fingerprint recognition is also very safe as well.

The big disadvantage here is without Face ID, the iPhone SE does not support Animoji or Memoji.

Camera

The bread and butter of any phone is the camera. iPhone XR has the edge here, but it’s minimal. They both have a 12-megapixel wide-angle rear lens, but the sensor on the XR is newer and a little sharper. But again, it’s minimal and you’d have to have a pretty sharp eye to spot the difference.

Battery Life

The iPhone XR is slightly larger, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that there’s room for a bigger battery that keeps it on longer without a charge; but, again, the difference is minimal. The XR will get about 16 hours and the SE will get about 13 hours of non-streaming video playback (video playback is about the most intensive, battery-draining, thing you can do on your phone.

Wi-Fi and LTE

Wi-Fi may seem to be an odd thing to list here—isn’t all wi-fi the same, after all? In a word: no. The SE supports 802.11ax; the XR supports 802.11ac. What on earth does that mean? Let’s just say the SE has the latest standard of Wi-Fi, and it will give you better connectivity—especially in areas that have several devices trying to log onto the same network. Security / Encryption is also better with this new standard. You probably won’t notice the difference, but the SE is better here.

The same thing is true about LTE; the iPhone SE supports Gigabit-class LTE, which is a newer standard and could technically allow for slightly faster LTE—a lot of this depends on the wireless carrier, however.

Weight

The SE is 7.3mm thick and 0.3 pounds; the XR is 8.3mm and 0.4 pounds.

Similarities

Those are some of the key differences. How are they the same? Here are the most important ways:

Both support wireless charging (with an extra accessory—there’s no wireless charger in the box)

4K video recording at up to 60 FPS

No headphone jack

Water resistance to a depth of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes (IP67-rated)

Feature This...

Every year, Apple releases a new version of its popular iPhone operating system that includes lots of changes. This year is no different. The update is completely free (if your phone is compatible).

While some of the features are pretty obvious, others are more under the hood and you may not be aware of them. Some updates are also exclusive to new devices.

This section will cover some of the most popular things that are new or updated in iOS 13. Most of them will be covered in greater detail as you continue through the book.

Performance

Changes behind the scenes means that phones now run faster and smoother; if your phone has Face ID, it will unlock up to 30% faster.

Dark Mode

Dark mode is perhaps the most obvious change to iOS; it lets you change your background to black, which makes the phone easier to read in dark or nighttime settings.

Look Around

You may have noticed a weird looking car with a giant camera on top driving around your neighborhood. For years, these cars were operated by Google, but over the past several months, Apple has been quietly working on its own street view-ish service called Look Around.

The new feature launches in iOS 13. Not all cities will be available at launch.

Find My

Finding your devices has been available for a long time on iOS; iOS 13 takes it up a notch, however, by letting you find devices even when Wi-Fi and cellular are turned off. This is accomplished by using the Bluetooth radios of other nearby devices.

Photos and Videos

Photos and videos will be covered more extensively later; what’s changed, however, is how they are organized and the editing features available. In short, finding the best photo is easier and editing is more powerful.

Reminders

The Reminder app has a new user interface (UI) and is now easier to share lists with friends and family.

––––––––

Notes

Notes has added a gallery view and you can now share entire folders.

Mail

Mail has made it easier to block and mute people, but the biggest change is with formatting your emails.

Files

You can now use an SD Card or USB cable on your device in a way that’s more like a computer when viewing and opening files (not just importing photos).

QuickPath Keyboard

If you don’t like the traditional keyboard and prefer to swipe to keys (it’s faster once you get used to it), iOS 13 has introduced a new keyboard that does just that.

Wireless Controllers

Apple has invested a lot in one of their newest services: Apple Arcade. To enhance it, they have added support for popular wireless game controllers (notably PlayStation DualShock 4 controller and the Xbox One S controller).

Read Goals

iBooks had added goals so you can now be encouraged to read more.

Screenshots

The ability to take a screenshots has been on the iPhone for years; iOS 13, however, introduces the option to take a screenshot of the entire page as a PDF.

Optimized Battery Charging

Your phone battery starts slowly deteriorating from the moment you turn it on. Much of this is because of overcharging. iOS 13 works harder to get the most out of your battery. It learns your charging routine, and then will start charging it only to 80%, and then charge the remaining just before you unplug it. So, it will not be charging for the entire night.

There are obviously more updates to iOS; some are too minor to cover and some will be covered later in this book.

Nice Gesture, Apple!

Navigating around the iPhone can be done many ways, but the easiest is through what is known as Gestures. Let’s take a look at the top ones you should know.

Let’s Go Home

First, the easiest gesture: getting to your Home screen. Do you have your pen and paper ready? It’s complicated...push the only button on the front of your phone!

That’s it.

Multitask

As Dorothy would say, there’s no place like Home—but we can still give a shoutout to Multitask can’t we? If you don’t know what it is, Multitask is how you switch quickly between apps—you’re in iMessage and want to open up Safari to get a website, for example; instead of closing iMessage, finding Safari from the Home screen, and then repeating the process to get back, you use Multitask to do it quickly.

On the iPhone SE you double tap the Home button.  You can now slide your finger left and right to toggle through all your previously used apps.

Mission Control...We’re Go for Flashlight

If you haven’t noticed, I’m putting these features in order of use. So, the third most common gesture people use is the Control Center. That’s where all your controls are located—go figure...Control is where controls are!

We’ll go over the Control Center in more detail later in the book. For now, just know that this is where you’ll do things like adjust brightness, enable airplane mode, and turn on the beloved flashlight. On the old iPhone, you accessed Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. This has been slightly changed on newer phones like the SE.

The new gesture for Control Center is swiping down from the upper right corner of the iPhone (not the top middle, which will do something else).

Notify Me How to Get Notifications

Eck! So many gestures to remember! Let me throw you a bone. To see notifications (those are the alerts like email and text that you get on your phone), swipe down from the middle of the screen. That’s the
