iOS 12 Edition is on its Way: Here’s How to Get it Free
Announcements / September 16, 2018

With the availability of iOS 12 from Apple on September 17, I can finally make it official. I’ll be releasing an updated version of iOS Access for All, incorporating coverage of everything that’s new. It’s the sixth edition of the book, and I’m really excited about it. Because I want to write comprehensively about all the new features, and cover how they behave on Apple’s new iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max models, I will release the book later this fall. As usual, I’m offering a special deal for those of you who want to be first to read iOS Access for All, iOS 12 Edition. If you buy a copy of the iOS 11 book between now and the release of the new one, you will receive the iOS 12 edition absolutely free when it is released. Better yet, buying now saves you $5, because the iOS 12 edition price will be going up to $25. Finally, you must buy the iOS 11 edition from my Web site, not from the Apple iBooks Store.

iOS Access for All: FAQ
Book Info / January 9, 2018

A lot of people have let me know they are excited about iOS Access for All. I’ve also been asked a number of questions about the book. Here we go! Question: What’s the focus of the book? Answer: iOS Access for All is a comprehensive guide to accessibility in the Apple mobile environment.
