Summer is almost over (in our neck of the woods, anyway) and that means the next releases of Apple’s macOS and iOS are right around the corner. We’re pleased to offer you three new titles that provide early access to what you need to know about High Sierra and iOS 11, and to give you the chance to save when you buy all three books together.

In Take Control of Upgrading to High Sierra, tech expert Joe Kissell has updated his stellar advice on upgrading to the latest version of macOS. Learn what you need to know to make the process go smoothly and efficiently, and what has changed from previous versions of the operating system, like the new file storage system Apple is introducing in High Sierra.

Once you’ve successfully installed High Sierra, learn all about it with Take Control of High Sierraby Scholle McFarland. This expanded version of Scholle’s popular Crash Course on macOS (previously on Sierra and El Capitan), makes the book a more substantive look at what’s in store with High Sierra. Find out about all the changes to your Mac’s apps and system-wide tools, learn useful tricks that may be not be obvious at first glance, and handle troubleshooting using Scholle’s expert advice.

Take Control of iOS 11, by TidBITS Managing Editor Josh Centers, also expands his Crash Course on iOS to give an even more thorough survey of everything that has changed in the new iOS. Learn about major changes to Control Center, about the new Instant Markup features, and the Files app, which offers access to files stored in iCloud and on your device. Find out how iOS 11 is a game-changer for the iPad, with new features that take it one step closer to being a peer to the Mac. (Learn more…)

You can purchase any of these books individually, or save $14 when you buy all three together. Plus, once High Sierra and iOS 11 officially ship, we’ll release free updates to all three books, to cover what changes between now and then.

Get ready for Apple’s fall operating system releases with the invaluable advice of Joe, Scholle, and Josh, and save money doing it!

We appreciate your continued support of Take Control and our authors!
