Become familiar with the basic functions usage of the iPhone, and also explore some useful and easy-to-learn functions that are slightly beyond the basics. We will explore some popular apps, including some apps that are “must-haves” for quick reference and life hacks. We will also explore apps within specialized themes such as shopping, social media, games, music, photos, video, news, travel, finance, and more! Though the course will focus primarily on iPhone, you can learn a lot about your iPad as well. Most apps and techniques apply to both, and we can spend some time focusing specifically on the iPad device as needed. Bring your devices so you can practice while we learn, and I will address individual questions as well. Please Note that this course applies only to Apple devices (iPhone/iPad) NOT Android devices.
