New Edition Available!

As much as I loved working on these iPhone and iPad books, the time has come transition to an entirely new edition. iOS 5 and Xcode 4.2 have made much of the information in the earlier editions difficult, if not impossible, to follow.

The good news is that Teach Yourself iOS 5 in 24 Hours is now available and covers iPhone, iPad, Storyboarding, ARC, and much more. It is, by far, the best and most technically-accurate edition to date. Learn more by visiting: It is available from

I wish there was good way to make these earlier editions remain relevant longer, but the changes are too significant to try to explain away in a few online supplements. I will continue to work my way through the support requests, but recommend checking out the new edition ASAP.
