As well as providing Android switchers with a guide on using its latest fleet of iPhones, Apple has just added an iOS 8 User Guide to iBooks for iPhone and iPad users. Ideal for anybody looking to get the most out of the new software, it covers every aspect from the simple stuff like sending emails to the other little quirks like using customizable keyboards, and as Apple describes in the release notes, serves as “an essential part of any iBooks library.”

While many of the more significant features in iOS 8, like third-party keyboard and widget support, are abundantly clear, the lesser obvious features often go unnoticed. But those taking the time to read the user guide will likely enjoy a more fruitful experience in the long run, and whether you’ve just applied the update to your current iPhone / iPad or are waiting on the imminent release of the iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus, the guide will stand you in good stead.

The past day or so has been pretty hectic as far as iOS 8 is concerned, but although some iPhone 4s users might disagree at this stage, there doesn’t appear to have been any major incidents. Of course, it’s still early doors, and if any sort of problem is reported, escalation and widespread panic can often ensue.

However, iOS 8 seems to have trickled out to the masses quite painlessly, and if you’re among the early adopters, be sure to grab the iPhone user guide from the iBookstore.
