Discover how to get the most out of your iPhone or iPod touch, from making calls, browsing the web, managing your time, and getting around town to taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. In this course, author Garrick Chow shows how to perform all of these tasks and more, and introduces the enhancements built into iOS 6, including enhanced language support and commands for Siri, shared photo streams, and the new Reply with Message feature for handling incoming calls. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations on how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and offers tips for personalizing the setup of the iPhone and iPod touch. An extensive section on troubleshooting helps when the occasional glitch happen.
In this final chapter we're going to be looking at some solutions for those occasional times in your day to day use of the iPhone or iPod touch where they might just acting weird. Maybe an app keeps quitting unexpectedly or maybe your device isn't connecting to the Internet. I'm actually having trouble coming up with examples of things that might go wrong because my personal experience with the iPhone and iPod touch has been pretty smooth. But if your device is acting weird, you can refer to this chapter for some things you can try. The first thing I always recommend trying whether it's an iPhone, iPod touch, your computer or any other electronic device is to restart the thing.
It always surprises me how some people will never try this very simple step, which fixes many temporary problems before they start getting into all kinds of complicated attempts to fix an issue. So we've seen this before, but to restart your iPhone or iPod touch, hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a couple of seconds until you see the Slide to Power Off slider. Then just slide to turn off your device. Wait until you see the screen turn off.
Now the screen might go blank, but for a moment the device will still technically be on. Once the iPhone or iPod is completely off, hold down the Sleep/Wake button again to power it back up. And once you're back at your Home screen check to see if restarting solved your issue.
