Merry Christmas, new iOS user!

Did you score an AppleTV, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch this morning and are already confused?

Take a deep breath — there is no reason to panic.

If you unwrapped an AppleTV, go browse Apple’s setup guide on its website. In no time, you’ll be ready to rent shows and stream music to your television like a pro.

Didn’t get an Apple TV? Well, you’re not out of luck. Apple has similar guides for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The iTunes Store, of course, is the backbone to the iOS universe. Be sure to setup an account, so you can download apps and media with your new devices. You can easily redeem any iTunes gift cards you received and give your credit card a well-deserved break.
