Tutorial and Health Update

Dan WassinkYou may be wondering where the tutorials are for the new watchOS 4 and iOS 11 for the iPhone and iPad. In short, they are coming! They are delayed for a few reasons, one being I am still recovering from three surgeries in the last 6 months. More on that later. But also there are other reasons. With the Apple Watch, I want to cover the newest watch with LTE and I am going to do this with the Nike Apple Watch. Unfortunately, this is not available yet. Once it is available, I’ll order it and I’ll get that tutorial out for you! With iOS 11, I like to create the tutorials with the final release, not with the betas, so that means I am going to start recording these tutorials shortly.

What about macOS High Sierra and the iPhone X? Those are coming too! With High Sierra, I am also waiting for Screenflow to be updated. Currently Screenflow (the software I use to record the tutorials) does not support High Sierra. They tell me an update is coming soon. Of course, with the iPhone X I need to wait for it to be released – in November.

In the meantime, I’ll be posting a few tips to help you with these new OS’s.

On to my health, some of you may know that I was diagnosed with appendix cancer, a very rare form of cancer. This was first diagnosed after emergency surgery in March. Since then, I’ve had two more surgeries including the ‘mother of all surgeries’ (HIPEC). The good news is my wonderful doctor believes he got all the cancer! I am back at home after nearly a month in the hospital and I am slowly recovering (it’s a very slow recovery for this type of surgery). As you can imagine, this has put a delay on the tutorials. But the worst is behind me, recovery is going well, and I’m feeling good! Good enough to get back to work for you!

So to sum it up:

  • macOS High Sierra: Waiting for High Sierra to be released and an update to Screenflow so I can record the tutorial.
  • Apple Watch and watchOS 4: Waiting for the Nike Apple Watch to be released.
  • iOS 11 for the iPhone: I am working on the tutorial.
  • iOS 11 for the iPad: I am working on the tutorial as well.
  • iPhone X: Waiting for the new iPhone to be released.
  • I am cancer free and in recovery mode. Feeling good!

New tutorials are coming soon, but I first must wait for hardware for a few of these. My health is good and the doctor believes I am cancer free.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, and thanks for your patience!

Sincerely,
Dan Wassink
