not liking this so far totally confused cannot get a dasmn manual except on the phone and just want to learn how to use this phone

I need to read it, off of the phone. You can’t figure out how to do things when it is on the phone. Having a pdf document for reference is Critical and Absolutely necessary!

Seems like we are in the same boat here, what seems to be missing is a logical response from Apple. It looks like we are not covered in their target demographic.


I don’t want to downloand and read 500 pages on my phone. I want to print out the manual or download it to a computer and print it.

So far I have not found a way to actually download the iPhone 12 User Manual to my iMac desktop.
I’ll try again tomorrow when I cool down.

Just got the phone. All I would like is a printable manual. I am a senior and it is very difficult to be reading a manual on the phone and working on the phone. A simple printable PDF would be appreciated. Is that asking too much? Trying to keep up in vancouver

Yes… Apple. Please make a printable pdf operating manual available.

This totally sucks! I will not download something to my phone that I won’t even be able to see to read and I can’t seem to find anything on my computer that allows me to open a document I can read so that I can use the new phone. Every time I click on something that says PDF I get redirected to another page that doesn’t help. About to send it back and go with an Android. Apple can’t include a user manual with the phone anymore? Frustrated! I’ve had the new phone since December 23 and so far it amounts to nothing more than a very expensive paperweight!

My brother in law is deaf and in his late 70’s this is his first phone and wants a manual so he can work through how to use his phone. With the older generation we need to read and absorb this information. Not all people have other electronic devices so they need and want a PDF manual that family are willing to download. The manual for most seniors only needs to be the basics of use re: how to make a phone call, retrieve a message bank message, how to send a text and what app allows you to pick up that text. How to email and how to access the app store for those who wish to obtain more apps. I feel your think-tank can come up with a basic 10 to 12 page PDF document on the use of the IPHONE 12. Thanking you in advance.

Amen to that.
