iOS 10 Edition Coming This Fall

Posted September 7, 2016 By Shelly

Today, Apple announced a release date for the latest version of iOS. You will be able to update your Apple mobile devices to iOS 10 on September 13. The iOS 10 update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch offers many new and updated features, including enhancements to the accessibility suite. I’m happy to announce that I will publish an updated edition of iOS Access for All that covers all the new iOS 10 goodies. The update is based on the current edition, but is a completely new book, not an addendum to the earlier version.

iOS Access for All (iOS 10 edition) will be available this fall. Anyone purchasing a copy of the current edition from my Web site between September 7 and the release of the updated book will receive the iOS 10 edition free. When the update is ready, you will receive an email from me, with a download link to the new book.

NOTE: I am not able to offer the free iOS 10 update to folks who purchase the book via the Apple iBooks Store, since Apple does not make it possible for me to know who bought the book after iOS 10’s release. If you prefer iBooks, I suggest you wait to buy the iOS 10 edition. iBooks Store buyers will, however, receive any free minor updates I publish during the life of the book.

As always, thanks for your continued support of iOS Access for All. I’m working hard to make this the best, most comprehensive guide to iOS accessibility you can get. I appreciate your patience, as I complete the writing and editing process.

        

All the Updates are Belong to You

Posted April 29, 2016 By Shelly

In the weeks since I released the iOS 9 book, I’ve worked to update the site, and the various ancillary items that go with the book. I’ve also published an update to the actual book, covering iOS 9.3. So here is a quick rundown of what’s new:

  • iOS Access for All is iOS 9.3-ready! If you bought the ePub or PDF edition for iOS 9, you received the updated book. You can get the book here.
  • Five updated chAPPters. You can buy these excerpts from Chapter 8 for $.99 each, via the iBooks Store. If you aren’t sure the book is for you, or want to suggest it to a friend, these short sections covering Safari, Mail, Phone, Calendar, and Maps are a great place to start. And you will learn a lot, too.
  • The free sample chapter (download link) is updated. Learn a log about Siri by downloading Chapter 5, absolutely free.
