iPhone Basics is a comprehensive introduction to the most useful — but sometimes perplexing — features and functions of your iPhone. You will learn about the settings, how to personalize your phone, and how to use iCloud. By the end of the class, you’ll also know how to transfer photos from your iPhone to your computer, how to share them with friends, and much more.
These classes will help you feel more competent and confident about using your iPhone.

About the Classes
The classes are small, usually no more than 8 to 10 people. I know that after 90 minutes, it gets difficult for many folks to concentrate. And week to week in a series of classes, you will have forgotten some things, so we spend time reviewing topics from earlier classes.

Coming Classes
Here are some of the other classes I offer. I’m looking for sponsoring facilities and organizations, so please share your thoughts.
