Learn tips and tricks that make using your Apple iPad more fun, in this iPadOS fundamentals training course for seniors.

Course Description

Your iPad looks like a bigger iPhone, and it is...not only in size! All the features on your iPhone are also available on your iPad, and the bigger screen means bigger and better features, too! 

Traditionally your iPhone and iPad ran the same operating system called iOS, but in 2019 Apple introduced iPadOS, an enhanced variant of iOS specifically designed to take full advantage of the iPad’s unique hardware capabilities. You’re going to love seeing the differences. 

During this class, we will explore these iPad specific improvements, including multitasking features like Split View and Slide Over so that you can see two apps at once, the expanded home screen & widgets to see info at-a-glance, and easier navigation.

You’ll even get an exclusive demonstration of the Apple Pencil & features like marking up pictures and writing on documents.
