Contact your carrier for information about your iPhone service plan and fees. Chapter 1 iPhone at a glance 11 Accessories The following accessories are included with iPhone: Apple headset. Use the Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic (iPhone 5 or later) or the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic (iPhone 4s) to listen to music and videos, and make phone calls. See Use an Apple headset on page 41. Connecting cable. Use the Lightning to USB Cable (iPhone 5 or later) or the 30-pin to USB Cable (iPhone 4s) to connect iPhone to your computer to sync and charge. Apple USB power adapter. Use with the Lightning to USB Cable or the 30-pin to USB Cable to charge the iPhone battery. SIM eject tool. Use to eject the SIM card tray. (Not included in all areas.) Multi-Touch screen A few simple gestures—tap, drag, swipe, and pinch—are all you need to use iPhone and its apps. Chapter 1 iPhone at a glance 12 Buttons Most of the buttons you use with iPhone are virtual ones on the touchscreen. A few physical buttons control basic functions, such as turning iPhone on or adjusting the volume. Sleep/Wake button When you’re not using iPhone, press the Sleep/Wake button to lock iPhone. Locking iPhone puts the display to sleep, saves the battery, and prevents anything from happening if you touch the screen. You can still get phone calls, FaceTime calls, text messages, alarms, and notifications. You can also listen to music and adjust the volume. On iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Sleep/Wake button is on the right side: Sleep/Wake button On earlier iPhone models, the Sleep/Wake button is on the top edge: Sleep/Wake button iPhone locks automatically if you don’t touch the screen for a minute or so. To adjust the timing, go to Settings > General > Auto-Lock. Turn iPhone on. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. Unlock iPhone. Press either the Sleep/Wake or Home button, then drag the slider. Turn iPhone off. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the slider appears, then drag the slider.

See apps you’ve opened. Double-click the Home button when iPhone is unlocked. See Start at home on page 23. Use Siri or Voice Control. Press and hold the Home button. See Chapter 4, Siri, on page 48 and Voice Control on page 33. Chapter 1 iPhone at a glance 13 On iPhone models with Touch ID, you can use the sensor in the Home button to read your fingerprint, instead of using your passcode or Apple ID password to unlock iPhone or make purchases in the iTunes Store, App Store, and iBooks Store. See Touch ID on page 44. If you have iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, you can also use the Touch ID sensor for authentication when using Apple Pay to make a purchase in a store or from within an app. See Touch ID on page 44 and Apple Pay on page 132. You can also use the Home button to turn accessibility features on or off. See Accessibility Shortcut on page 151.

To prevent changes to the volume limit, go to Settings > General > Restrictions. Use Control Center to adjust the volume.

In some areas, the sound effects for Camera and Voice Memos are played, even if the Ring/Silent switch is set to silent. For information about changing sound and vibration settings, see Sounds and silence on page 36. Use Do Not Disturb. You can also silence calls, alerts, and notifications using Do Not Disturb.

It all gets pushed wirelessly to your other iOS devices and computers, keeping everything up to date. See iCloud on page 17. • iTunes syncs music, videos, photos, and more between your computer and iPhone. Changes you make on one device are copied to the other when you sync. You can also use iTunes to sync files and documents. See Sync with iTunes on page 20. You can use iCloud or iTunes, or both, depending on your needs. For example, you can use iCloud to automatically keep your contacts and calendars up to date on all your devices, and use iTunes to sync music from your computer to iPhone. Important:  To avoid duplicates, keep contacts, calendars, and notes in sync using iCloud or iTunes, but not both. Chapter 2 Get started 20 You can also manually manage content from iTunes, in the device’s Summary pane. This lets you add songs and videos, by choosing a song, video, or playlist from your iTunes library and then dragging it to your iPhone in iTunes. This is useful if your iTunes library contains more items than can fit on your device. Note:  If you use iTunes Match, you can manually manage only video. Connect iPhone to your computer Connecting iPhone to your computer lets you sync content from your computer using iTunes. See Sync with iTunes on page 20. To use iPhone with your computer, you need: • An Internet connection for your computer (broadband is recommended) • A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, and one of the following operating systems: • OS X version 10.6.8 or later • Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 3 or later Connect iPhone to your computer. Use the included Lightning to USB Cable or the 30-pin to USB Cable. Sync with iTunes Syncing with iTunes copies information from your computer to iPhone, and vice versa. You can sync by connecting iPhone to your computer, or you can set up iTunes to sync wirelessly with Wi-Fi. You can set iTunes to sync music, videos, apps, photos, and more. For help syncing iPhone, open iTunes on your computer, choose Help > iTunes Help, then select Sync your iPod, iPhone, or iPad. iTunes is available at Set up wireless syncing. Connect iPhone to your computer. In iTunes on your computer, select your iPhone, click Summary, then select Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi. If Wi-Fi syncing is turned on, iPhone syncs when it’s connected to a power source, both iPhone and your computer are on and connected to the same wireless network, and iTunes is open on your computer. Tips for syncing with iTunes on your computer Connect iPhone to your computer, select it in iTunes, then set options in the different panes. • If iPhone doesn’t appear in iTunes, make sure you’re using the latest version of iTunes, check that the included cable is correctly connected, then try restarting your computer. Chapter 2 Get started 21 • In the Summary pane, you can set iTunes to automatically sync iPhone when it’s attached to your computer. To temporarily prevent syncing when you attach the device, hold down Command and Option (Mac) or Shift and Control (PC) until you see iPhone appear in the iTunes window. • In the Summary pane, select “Encrypt iPhone backup” if you want to encrypt the information stored on your computer when iTunes makes a backup. Encrypted backups are indicated by a lock icon , and a password is required to restore the backup. If you don’t select this option, other passwords (such as those for mail accounts) aren’t included in the backup and you’ll have to reenter them if you use the backup to restore iPhone. • In the Music pane, you can sync music using your playlists. • In the Photos pane, you can sync photos and videos from a supported app or folder on your computer. • If you use iCloud to store your contacts, calendars, and bookmarks, don’t also sync them to iPhone using iTunes. • If you turn on iCloud Photo Library, you can’t use iTunes to sync photos and videos to iPhone. Date and time The date and time are usually set for you based on your location—take a look at the Lock screen to see if they’re correct. Set whether iPhone updates the date and time automatically. Go to Settings > General > Date & Time, then turn Set Automatically on or off. If you set iPhone to update the time automatically, it gets the correct time over the cellular network and updates it for the time zone you’re in. Some carriers don’t support network time, so in some areas iPhone may not be able to automatically determine the local time. Set the date and time manually. Go to Settings > General > Date & Time, then turn off Set Automatically. Set whether iPhone shows 24-hour time or 12-hour time. Go to Settings > General > Date & Time, then turn 24-Hour Time on or off. (24-Hour Time may not be available in all areas.)
