Some free tutorials

I have provided some free tutorials here for your use. They have been created for workshop presentations in landscape, or horizontal mode.
NOTE: Some of these were created for older iPads (iOS 9 to iOS 12). However, most of the basics remain the same. If you are looking for user guides for older ipads, it may be best to open the iBooks app and search for the user guide which matches your version of iOS (eg iOS 9 or iOS 12).

Currently we are up to iPadOS 14 (released September 16 2020). This OS version is compatible with iPads built since October 2014.
NOTE: Not all new features are available for older devices.

Apple - Resources

We are not trying to cover everything here. Apple does a wonderful job of that on its Support webpage. We are only concerned with providing content for the iPaddlers Tutorial Group. The main resources that Apple provides for iPad users are:


Guardrail Tutorials

How does it work? Devices and functionality we take for granted

The following free tutorial presentations were created prior to 2017 (updated and revised in late 2016). They were designed to help people understand some of the underlying IT technology encountered in everyday life. They are suitable for the average user who requires some IT help that may not be covered very well elsewhere, or is covered in too much technical detail. The emphasis is on visual learning. Much of the material covered is relevant to the Apple Mac and the iPad. However, most of the information applies to other Operating Systems and devices as well. This material was created primarily, but not exclusively, for an iPad tutorial group. I have put this work on hold for now as I concentrate more on iPad tutorials (hence some of it may be a little out of date).
