My iPad for Seniors, 5th Edition, is a comprehensive guide to using all of Apple’s iPad models. It includes everything from basic setup information to finding and installing new apps to using the iPad for communication, entertainment, and productivity. The information presented in this book is targeted at users aged 50 and up; whenever possible, one best way for any given task is presented, and instructions are simplified with older users in mind.

This edition features completely new content from front to back. The emphasis is on how this audience uses their iPads, covering those apps and features in simple step-by-step fashion.
