Note in middle of page

Replace existing text by "MacOS and most Apple apps are only localized for 35 languages, but Calendar app can display the names of months and days in a huge number." Comment: Apple's list in the top part of preferred languages is no longer accurate, a number of those, even British English, have no localization. For the correct list see the tech specs.

We've included this change for the next printing. Thank you!

6th bullet item, Change Keyboard Type

Replace "(wired or wireless)" by "(US, European, or Japanese)" Comment: Keyboard "Type" refers to the 3 different physical keyboard arrangements produced by Apple, which have different numbers, shapes, and locations of keys. When not recognized correctly, output does not match what is printed on the keys.

First paragraph

Under syncing Calendar etc it says "See page 312 for details on this amazing setup." Page 312 deals with "Handoff". Is this the "amazing setup" of which you are speaking?

Note from the Author or Editor:
This should instead point to page 659. We've included the change for the next printing.
