  • Share music, movies, and apps among family members
  • Manage passwords and stay safe, including tips on creating good passwords and using Touch ID
  • Share essential information, including calendars, contacts, reminders, maps, and files 
  • Control a family member’s screen remotely for easier longdistance troubleshooting
  • Back up your irreplaceable data, whether it’s on iOS devices (iCloud and iTunes) or your Mac (Time Machine)
  • Be smart (and safe!) and create a bootable Mac backup
  • Welcome the newest member of the Apple family, the Apple Watch, and learn how it will extend your current devices

Product Description:

While most users know how to accomplish the simple tasks with their Apple devices, the elementary stuff just scratches the surface of what Apple’s products have to offer. Apple users have more power than they know, and with a little know-how, they can tap into a much richer experience, using their devices as Apple designed them. From keeping track of family members’ locations at an amusement park to sharing apps, music, and videos across devices,  this book will show users how to tap into the magic of their Apple devices

Readers will learn how to:

  • Take control of our devices’ security from managing passcodes to—shudder—locating a lost device.
  • Communicate with family and friends, including with audio clips, and create have multi-person chats.
  • Enjoy iTunes, iBooks,and App Store purchases across a family’s devices.
  • Share apps, learn about the Ask to Buy feature, and even disable purchases on devices.
  • Take advantage of photo sharing through the cloud.
  • Effortlessly share calendars and contacts
  • Back up the whole family’s data.
  • Use their devices to find their family and friends.
  • Set restrictions and parental controls for kids

In Apple’s ecosystem, the sum is greater than the parts.
