Hello, and welcome to the Practical Guides, books written by Glenn Fleishman, a senior contributor to Macworld, and a regular writer for TidBITS, the Economist, Fast Company, and other publications.
The latest book in our series is A Practical Guide to Networking, Privacy & Security in iOS 10. It covers a huge range of common setup and routine usage issues, with illustrated step-by-step instructions for carrying out these tasks. The book offers insight into what information you may unintentionally expose about yourself, and how to prevent Apple and third parties from gaining access to your details. It also walks you through security scenarios from securing your data in transit to connecting to a secure Wi-Fi network to recovering or erasing a lost phone.
As the title implies, it's been thoroughly updated for iOS 10, including details about call blocking, differential privacy, and Wi-Fi Calling, among many other changes.
