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.
If you find yourself in an iPhone or iPod touch lockup situation where you can't get your device to respond to the commands for force quitting an application or for restarting the phone, we covered both those methods in previous movies, the next step is to try forcing the device to reboot. To do so hold down both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously. Now even when the screen goes blank it's important to keep holding down the buttons. Only when you see the Apple logo appear you'll know the device has successfully rebooted and then you can release the buttons.
You can also try this fix if your iPhone or iPod touch is off but won't turn back on. Of course first plug it into a charger to make sure the battery isn't just depleted, but once you're plugged in, hold down the Sleep/Wake button and Home button together to see if your device will reboot.
