The book is divided into three major sections:

Networking should be simple, and security should be automatic. And money should grow on trees. Despite how intuitive it is to pick up and use an iOS device, requiring little thought as to how it connects to a cellular or Wi-Fi network, it becomes quite complex as soon as you drill down to any details. This is especially true when connectivity fails,and you try to troubleshoot.

Privacy is a subject that deserves much more attention than it’s gotten in the past—and people are starting to pay attention. Your information is your own to choose how it’s shared, whether it’s your location, your food preference, or your address and phone number. iOS 9 provides new tools that enhance your ability to control that.

Security is an even denser area. Apple makes the default choices in iOS ­reasonably secure, but to ensure real protection for your data—­while your bits are traveling through the æther or in the event that your device is stolen—you need to know how it all works.
