I've written a free 47-page manual to iOS5 that explains how you can install iOS5 on your iPad, and how you can make the most of your iPad's new features, including all those iOS5 features listed above. If you already have a copy of the book iPad for the Older and Wiser, this supplement updates the book for you, explaining what's new and what's changed. If you don't already have a copy, this free book chapter will still help you to get up and running with iOS5 quickly and will give you a taster of the content and style of my iPad book.

This free ebook is a PDF, so you can read it on your iPad, on your computer, or can print it out.

NOTE: This is a large file (14MB), so it will take a little while to download. You might see the cover appear and then it might look like nothing else is happening, but the rest of the file will be downloading. Please be patient!
