APPLE’S IPHONE – A GLANCE
Introducing iPhone 3G. With fast 3G wireless technology, GPS mapping, support for enterprise features like Microsoft Exchange, and the new App Store, iPhone 3G puts even more features at your fingertips. And like the original iPhone, it combines three products in one — a revolutionary phone, a widescreen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device with rich HTML email and a desktop-class web browser. iPhone 3G. It redefines what a mobile phone can do — again.
Zooming In or Out:
When viewing photos, webpages, email, or maps, you can zoom in and out. Pinch your fingers together or apart. For photos and webpages, you can double-tap (tap twice quickly) to zoom in, then double-tap again to zoom out. For maps, double-tap to zoom in and tap once with two fingers to zoom out.
Joining a Wi-Fi Network:
The Wi-Fi settings let you turn on Wi-Fi and join Wi-Fi networks.
- Turn on Wi-Fi:
- Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on.
- Join a Wi-Fi network:
- Choose Settings > Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPhone detects networks in range, then select a network (fees may apply to join some Wi-Fi networks). If necessary, enter a password and tap Join (networks that require a password appear with a lock icon).
Once you’ve joined a Wi-Fi network manually, iPhone automatically connects to it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPhone joins the one last used.
When iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
- Reset all settings:
- Choose General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
All your preferences and settings are reset. Information, such as your contacts and calendars, and media, such as your songs and videos, are not deleted.
- Erase all content and settings:
- Connect iPhone to your computer or a power adapter. Choose General > Reset and tap “Erase All Content and Settings.”
This feature resets all settings to their defaults and removes all your information and media on your iPhone by overwriting the data stored on iPhone.
IMPORTANT: You can’t use iPhone while data is being overwritten. This can take one to two hours or more, depending on the storage capacity of your iPhone.
- Reset the keyboard dictionary:
- Choose General > Reset and tap Reset Keyboard Dictionary.
You add words to the keyboard dictionary by rejecting words iPhone suggests as you type. Tap a word to reject the correction and add the word to the keyboard dictionary. Resetting the keyboard dictionary erases all words you’ve added.
- Reset network settings:
- Choose General > Reset and tap Reset Network Settings.
When you reset network settings, your list of previously used networks and your VPN settings are removed. Wi-Fi is turned off and then back on, disconnecting you from any network you’re on. The Wi-Fi and “Ask to Join Networks” settings are left turned on.
- Reset the Home screen layout:
- Choose General > Reset and tap Reset Home Screen Layout.
- Reset the location warnings:
- Choose General > Reset and tap Reset Location Warnings.
Location warnings are the requests made by applications (such as Camera and Maps) to use Location Services with those applications. iPhone stops presenting the warning for an application the second time you tap OK. Tap Reset Location Warnings to resume the warnings.
Restarting and Resetting iPhone:
If something is not working right, restarting or resetting iPhone will likely solve the problem.
- Restart iPhone:
- Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
- Reset iPhone:
- Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
iPhone Doesn’t Respond:
- iPhone may be low on power. Connect iPhone to your computer or to its power adapter to charge.
- Press and hold the Home button below the screen for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
If that doesn’t work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If that doesn’t work, reset iPhone. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
Assigning a Photo to a Contact
You can assign a photo to a contact. When that person calls, iPhone displays the photo.
Assign a photo to a contact:
- Choose Camera from the Home screen and take someone’s picture. Or choose any photo alreadyon iPhone and tap .
- Tap Assign to Contact and choose a contact.
- Position and size the photo until it looks the way you want.Drag the photo to pan, and pinch to zoom in or out.
- Tap Set Photo.
You can also assign a photo to a contact in Contacts by tapping Edit and then tapping the picture icon.
Screen brightness affects battery life. Dim the screen to extend the time before you need to recharge iPhone, or use Auto-Brightness.
- Adjust the screen brightness:
- Choose Brightness and drag the slider.
- Set whether iPhone adjusts screen brightness automatically:
- Choose Brightness and turn Auto-Brightness on or off. If Auto-Brightness is on, iPhone adjusts the screen brightness for current light conditions using the built-in ambient light sensor.
Wi-Fi settings determine whether iPhone uses local Wi-Fi networks to connect to the Internet. If no Wi-Fi networks are available, or you’ve turned Wi-Fi off, then iPhone connects to the Internet via your cellular data network, when available. You can use Mail, Safari, YouTube, Stocks, Maps, Weather, and the App Store over a cellular data network connection, but not the iTunes Music Store.
- Turn Wi-Fi on or off:
- Choose Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
- Join a Wi-Fi network:
- Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPhone detects networks in range, then select a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. (Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.)
Once you’ve joined a Wi-Fi network manually, iPhone automatically joins it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPhone joins the one last used.
When iPhone is joined to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows signal strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal.
- Set iPhone to ask if you want to join a new network:
- Choose Wi-Fi and turn “Ask to Join Networks” on or off.
When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or Mail for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPhone to look for another network. iPhone displays a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. (Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.) If “Ask to Join Networks” is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network or a cellular data network isn’t available.
- Forget a network, so iPhone doesn’t join it automatically:
- Choose Wi-Fi and tap next to a network you’ve joined before. Then tap “Forget this Network.”
- Join a closed Wi-Fi network:
- To join a Wi-Fi network that isn’t shown in the list of scanned networks, choose Wi-Fi > Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password.
You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network.
Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
- Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network:
- Choose Wi-Fi, then tap next to a network.
