iPhone arrives on June 29. iPhone features an amazing mobile phone, is the best iPod we’ve ever created,
and puts the Internet in your pocket with desktop-class email, web browsing, searching, and maps. And
iPhone makes it all easy to use with its revolutionary multi-touch user interface. iPhone syncs with your PC
or Mac just like an iPod, so organizing your content now will help you start calling, texting, emailing, surf-
ing, listening, and watching even faster when you get your iPhone. Here are a few suggestions to help you
get ready.
CONTACTS Making a call with iPhone is as simple as tapping a name. You won’t need to re-enter all your
contacts because iPhone syncs with the address book you already use on your computer — Address Book
or Entourage on a Mac, or Outlook or Outlook Express on a PC. If you keep your contacts on the web using
Yahoo! Address Book, iPhone can sync with them, too. To get ready for iPhone, organize your contacts in
one of these applications and make sure they’re up to date with the latest phone numbers and email ad-
dresses. If you don’t have contacts on your computer, don’t worry. You can still enter them directly into
iPhone.
CALENDAR Using its built-in calendar, iPhone lets you check your appointments with the flick of a finger.
iPhone uses iTunes to sync with the calendar application you already use on your computer — iCal or En-
tourage on the Mac, or Outlook on a PC — just like it does with your contacts. If you don’t already use one
of these applications to manage your appointments, now is a great time to start, so you’ll be ready to sync
when your iPhone arrives. If you choose not to use a calendar program, that’s OK. You’ll be able to enter
appointments directly into the iPhone calendar.

EMAIL iPhone is the first phone to come with a desktop-class email application. So now your phone can
display rich HTML email with graphics and photos alongside the text. iPhone will even fetch your latest
email every time you open the application and automatically retrieve your email on a set schedule, just like
a computer does. iPhone works with the most popular email systems — including Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL,
and .Mac Mail. If you’re not already using one of these services, now would be a great time to get an ac-
count. iTunes will make email setup on iPhone a breeze by automatically syncing the settings from email
accounts stored in Mail on a Mac or Outlook on a PC. Don’t worry if you’re not on one of these email serv-
ices; iPhone also works with almost any industry-standard POP3 and IMAP email system.
PHOTOS iPhone has a 2-megapixel camera and a gorgeous 3.5-inch display, so it’s a great way to enjoy
and show off your digital photos. iPhone uses iTunes to sync your photos from iPhoto on a Mac or Adobe
Photoshop Elements, Adobe Photoshop Album, or any picture folder on a PC. You can carry thousands of
photos on iPhone, but you can start by creating an album or two with 50 to 100 of your favorite photos, so
that when you first sync your iPhone, you’ll be ready to quickly show off some of your best shots.
MUSIC AND VIDEO iPhone is the best iPod ever. Its beautiful, 3.5-inch widescreen display allows you to
easily enjoy the music, TV shows, and movies you have in your iTunes library. If you already use iTunes,
you can start getting ready for iPhone by creating a playlist of a few hundred of your favorite songs. If you
don’t have iTunes, now is a good time to download it and start a music and video library. That way, when
you sync your iPhone with iTunes, you’ll be able to take your favorite music, as well as a few of your TV
shows and movies, with you wherever you go.
