Chapter in this post:
Apple has at the World Wide Developers Conference 2021 (WWDC21) introduced the new Mac operating system macOS 12 Monterey. This not only comes on the manufacturer's new computer, but can also be on older compatible models to be installed. If you want to get the most out of your Mac, there are various instructions, tutorials and assistance available. In this post I have created a list of three books that will bring you closer to macOS Monterey and accelerate your workflow. In addition to the basics, it covers apps, tips and tricks, and keyboard shortcuts.
I recently got this to you guys iPadOS 15 manual presented by Anton Ochsenkühn. Today the manual for the Mac follows this standard work for the Apple iPad. On 560 pages everything about compatibility, installation, user interface, use of apps, files and folders as well as problems and troubleshooting is explained. The use of the Mac with other Apple devices is also discussed. An extensive aid organization that gives more than just a superficial insight. And best of all: 5 hours of video material can be accessed via QR codes (Internet connection required). A look inside the book, the Kindle download and more can be found with this link.
Simone Ochsenkühn also publishes books with amac-buch Verlag, for example the 88-page collection of keyboard shortcuts for Finder, Safari, Photos, Mail, Siri, Music and other apps under macOS Monterey. At the beginning, of course, the Mac keyboard and its special keys will be discussed first. It is then shown how these can be used for a faster workflow. Also for Apple TV, iMovie, calendar and other apps, corresponding shortcuts are displayed. Clear tables make looking up key combinations particularly easy. You can buy the book here.
Philip Kiefer is also a well-known name in the field of Mac manuals and other specialist publications. Markt + Technik Verlag will publish its 28-page manual for macOS Monterey on October 2021, 336. Like the manuals for the previous systems, this should be suitable for newbies, advanced users and those who switch over from Windows. This is ensured by the printed screenshots that underpin the book's motto “Seeing and Ability”. In addition to the system and the apps, keyboard shortcuts, problems and troubleshooting are also discussed. You can reserve the book on a wish list or pre-order it for the release day with this link.
