This class is designed for iPhone and iPad users who seek greater experience with the myriad capabilities of their devices. (this class is NOT for Android devices). People taking this class must own either an ipad or iphone (or both), bring it to class fully charged, activated with your carrier (in the case of iphones), and have established an AppleID and password. If you have a brand new device, and this is your first, you can call Apple at 1-800-692-7753 to setup your ID and password. To download “APPS” you need to have a credit card, even if you only download free APPS to obtain the text prior to the course beginning, either locally or online. Each of the four sessions will be devoted to different capabilities: getting to know settings, passcodes, and updates; opening and closing devices; using SIRI; downloading APPS; using the calendar; video calls; checking weather; shopping; reading; travel; researching; using the camera; storing and sharing photos; text messaging; music; and games.
