Tips & Tricks Guide To IPhone And IPad Outsells Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

Tips & Tricks: Share your location using  Maps. Tap on any pin, then the blue arrow, then Share Location. The kind Vogon can then open your location in  Maps and come and collect you.

Hitchhiker's: Forget it.

What to do if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground underneath a giant boulder you can't move:

Tips & Tricks: Read Chapter 3, Battery Life. It provides the best tips on how to keep your battery alive for longer whilst you wait to be rescued.

Hitchhiker's: Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to you so far.

If looking for information about sex:

Tips & Tricks: Just look at the text messages on someone's phone. One of our most frequently asked questions comes from married men asking how to delete incriminating text messages. To delete a text tap edit, tap the incriminating text message and then delete. Ideally, enable a passcode to avoid unwanted access - open Settings, Passcode Lock, tap Turn Passcode On and enter a memorable four-digit passcode.

Hitchhiker's: Read chapters seven, nine, ten, eleven, fourteen, sixteen, seventeen, nineteen, twenty-one to eighty-four inclusive, and in fact most of the rest of the  Guide.

What do you do if you lose your phone:

Tips & Tricks: To avoid losing your phone open  Settings, iCloud, and turn on Find My Phone. If you lose it you can then go to where you can have your iPhone emit an audible alert, check its battery life and remotely wipe your data (requires iOS 5).

Hitchhiker's: Don't panic.

Douglas Adams may find it an honor to see Apple guides outsell his Tips & Tricks apps. He was himself the first person to buy a Mac in Europe ( Stephen Fry was the second). Apple have sold a staggering total of over 500 million iOS devices, but users often fail to use these devices to their fullest potential.
