A mass email sent out by Apple and AT&T entitled “Get Ready. iPhone is coming July 29th” lists several suggestions as to how to prepare for the device’s arrival. Broken down into “Contacts,” “Calendar,” “Email,” “Photos,” “Music and Video,” and “iTunes Account” sections, the message explains how each category works on the iPhone.
According to an article on iLounge, the e-mail explains how each user will need to create an iTunes account in order to set up the iPhone.
The section by section breakdown:
Contacts:
Apple recommends getting your contact information up to date and prep your address book program (such as Address Book, Entourage, Outlook Express, etc.) to automatically synch with the iPhone.
Calendar:
The e-mail cites that the iPhone can import events from programs such as iCal or Entourage on the Mac or Outlook on the PC by synching the iPhone with your computer. Appointments can also be directly entered into the iPhone itself.
Email:
The announcement mentions that the iPhone can automatically synch e-mail account settings through iTunes and that popular email services such as Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL and .Mac Mail as well as POP and IMAP-based email will work on the iPhone. The iPhone will be able to automatically retrieve email on a set schedule if desired.
Photos:
The iPhone can display photos synched to the device via iTunes and iPhoto. On the Windows end, users can synch images to the iPhone from Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Photoshop Album or any picture folder. Apple suggests creating a test album of 50 to 100 photos as a test bed for the function.
Music and Video:
Like several of the other major features, the email cites that iTunes will be required to synch music and video to the iPhone. Apple suggests making a playlist of your favorite songs in advance.
iTunes Account:
Perhaps the most interesting part of the e-mail, users will need to create an iTunes account in order to set up the iPhone. Once the iPhone is in hand, fire up iTunes to create an account. Also double check your user name and password if any of these are in question for a smooth setup process.
