Apple iPhone: Getting started

The courses in this topic guide you through safely setting up your new or pre-owned iPhone. Each course contains an instructional video that you can follow to set up your iPhone and customise it to suit you. We recommend watching each of the videos on a computer so you can use your phone to complete the set- up steps as you go.

Identifying your iPhone: All iPhones have a small Apple logo on the back. If you can’t see this logo, you likely have an Android phone. If you do have an Android phone, you can set it up by viewing our Android phone courses.
