Summer Class Series: Things You Didn’t Know your iPhone Could Do

Many people use their iPhones to make calls, send text messages, check emails, take a few photos and occasionally search the Internet for information. However, our Apple iPhones are amazing devices and offer so many useful features that are largely hidden from everyday users. And every new release of software adds to that feature list.

In this series of summer classes, you will learn about hidden features that are found on your iPhones. You will get to know Siri. You will learn new strategies and shortcuts for communication and controlling your device. You will learn about the incredible capabilities of the camera that you carry in your pocket. And you will learn new about iPhone’s capabilities to improve Health and Safety and your life.

Bring your iPhones, your curiosity and your iPhone questions to the class. Each two-hour session will include learning, demonstration and hands-on exploration of select hidden features and time for Q&A and sharing. It is your chance to ask those nagging questions and learn how others are using their iPhones. Each class features different topics and students can attend one or all sessions as different topics will be explored in each class. The class will also provide online access to materials on the featured topics so that you can continue to learn and explore after the class.
