The sales of Apple's new low priced iPad mini are likely to be phenomenal, due to it's affordable pricing that now makes it available to a whole new market.


This book is in a similar style to Andrew Edney's previous books that we have published on the iPad (ISBN 9780859347273 and 9780859347334) and should prove to be just as successful.


The book covers everything a new iPad mini user will need to know in setting up and using this brilliant new device. It is written in plain English and uses numbered 'walk throughs' to explain exactly what you have to do. In fact this book will act as the 'User Manual' which should have been originally provided with the device.


The book covers:

 

  • An Introduction to your iPad mini
  • Switching On Your iPad mini for the first time
  • Using The iPad mini for the first time
  • Personalization
  • Connecting the iPad mini to a network
  • Surfing the Internet
  • Using iTunes
  • E-mailing
  • The App Store
  • Other iPad mini features
  • Troubleshooting
  • And more...
