Apple has two hits on its hands with iOS 6 software and the iPhone 5; heck, even the much-maligned Maps app is slowly improving. There’s a lot to love — and learn — about both products.

“iPhone 5: The Missing Manual, 6th Edition” is comprehensive, lively look at the inner (and outer) workings of both. And it’s written in the inimitable, tongue-in-cheek style of David Pogue, the weekly personal-technology columnist for the “New York Times” and an Emmy award-winning tech correspondent for CBS News.

“The Missing Manual” looks at the taller screen, faster chip, 4G LTE Internet, and features of the latest Apple smartphone. When it comes to iOS 6, Pogue serves up details on the Maps app, shared Photo Streams, camera panoramas, smarter Siri, and more. He also looks at the catalog of 750,000 add-on apps for iOS. And all of this coverage is accompanied by helpful, colorful graphics and illustrations.

“iPhone 5: The Missing Manual, 6th Edition” from O’Reilly Media costs US$23.99 for an ebook, $29.99 for a print version, or $323.99 for a combination of the two. For more information about the book — including the table of contents, author bios, and cover graphic — go to .
