In This Chapter
Checking out your iPhone's inner iPod
Taking control of your tunes
Customizing your audio experience
Shopping with the iTunes app
As we mention elsewhere in this book, your iPhone is perhaps the best iPod ever — especially for working with audio and video. In this chapter, we show you how to use your iPhone for audio; in Chapter 8, we cover video.
We start with a quick tour of the iPhone's iPod application. Then we look at how to use your iPhone as an audio player. After you're nice and comfy with using it this way, we show you how to customize the listening experience so that it's just the way you like it. Then we offer a few tips to help you get the most out of using your iPhone as an audio player. Finally, we show you how to use the iTunes application to buy music, audiobooks, videos, and more and how to download free content, such as podcasts.
We assume that you already synced your iPhone with your computer and that your iPhone contains audio content — songs, podcasts, or audiobooks. If you don't have any audio on your iPhone yet, we humbly suggest that you get some (flip to Chapter 3 and follow the instructions) before you read the rest of this chapter — or the next chapter, for that matter.
Okay, now that you have some audio content on your iPhone to play with, are you ready to rock?
