The Mobile iPhone

Now that you’ve mastered all the calling and listening stuff, you’re ready to become a whiz at sending and retrieving SMS, MMS, and iMessage messages. As journalists, we especially appreciate what comes next: finding out how to become a champion note taker.

Next, you explore all those C-word programs — namely, Calendar, Calculator, and Clock — plus a V-word program called Voice Memos and the new Reminders app. These handy applications enable you to stay on top of your appointments, solve arithmetic problems on the fly (with one or two nifty calculators), show up for appointments on time — thanks to a built-in alarm clock — record memos (or lectures, or anything you can hear, really), and create a to-do list.

Then you see how easy it is to make calls with Voice Control (if you’re lucky enough to own an iPhone 3GS, 4, or 4S).We close this part with a delightful little ditty about Siri, the intelligent assistant inside the iPhone 4S. Marvel at how she understands what you say and then does it — most of the time.
