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 on iPadOS 13 (for iPads built since October 2014)
