You shouldn’t need to plug your new iPhone 6 in straight away, most units will come with almost a full charge out of the box. This gives you the chance to sit down, relax and set up your brand new toy. Hold down the power/lock button located conveniently down the right side of the phone for a few seconds. The Apple logo should appear and you are ready to rock!
3. Creating an Apple account.
Apple have designed the iPhone so it does not have to be tethered to a computer or laptop ever now. Previous iPhones’ needed to be synced with iTunes on a computer to get the full use. Not now however; the iPhone can be set up straight out of the box and a new Apple account created easily.
Most people will have an email account already. Great; you can set up using this if you wish. Alternatively, Apple can provide you with your own personal Apple email account, complete with a .me email name. Registration is a necessity if you want to download apps, music or movies, and of course you will!!
Setup should not take more than a few minutes, the steps are easy to follow and there’s very little chance of messing anything up! Any details that may need to be changed after can be edited, no worries there.
Once all is setup, time to jump into the main attraction- using the phone itself!
