4th paragraph

In May 2012, Apple changed the name of the name of the model that also works on AT&T and Verizon data networks from "Wi-Fi + 4G" to "Wi-Fi + Cellular." The physical properties of the hardware were unchanged, but text throughout the book (Chapter 3 in particular) regarding the "Wi-Fi + 4G" model now refers to the "Wi-Fi + Cellular" model.

4th paragraph, last sentence

Outdated info about using iTunes Wi-Fi Sync with a computer on an Ethernet connection. Replace sentence as follows: And if your home network is a mix of WiFi and wired Ethernet connections, you can usually get iTunes to sync either way--with a computer wirelessly connected to your home network, or with one connected via Ethernet cable--as long as the wired machine is connected to your WiFi network router.
