Note: This guide assumes you are familiar with iOS already, and goes into great detail about what is new or has changed since iOS 10. If you are brand new to the iPhone and iOS, you'll want Anna Dresner's Getting Started with the iPhone.

Apple's iOS has reached its 11th major release! It's more powerful, more open, and boasts even more accessibility enhancements, with braille in particular coming of age in this exciting update.

You've invested in a great device, why not invest just a fraction more to ensure that you're using all its new smarts to the max? And there are a lot of them. Once again, Jonathan Mosen has written an easy-to-read yet thorough book unlocking all the magic of the latest iOS — written specifically with blind people and assistive technology instructors of the blind in mind. He starts from the install process, works his way through all the VoiceOver changes, then moves on to the amazing new mainstream features from a blindness perspective.
