Are you new to the Mac, iPad, or iPhone? Not sure where to start with training? Maybe I can help.

If you are new the to Mac, I would recommend taking a look at Tutor for MacOS Sierra and High Sierra. The first part of this tutorial covers the basics of the Mac including terminology, using the Finder, saving documents, and more. All of these lessons are designed to get you up and running on the Mac.

From there, you could take a look at the next section Beyond the Basics, but at that point you may just want to pick and choose lessons. Notifications Center and Today view is a good start. I would also recommend the first couple of videos on System Preferences. They will help you understand what the System Preferences are. Selecting documents is another good one. You don’t have to watch everything though. As an example, if you do not need to add parental controls, there is no need to watch the lesson on Parental controls.

I also have a number of tutorials on, what I call, core apps. These tutorials include Tutor for Contacts, Tutor for Calendar, Tutor for Mail, and Tutor for Safari. The tutorials are relatively short but you may learn something new as these are powerful but simple apps. The more you know about them, the more you’ll get out of them.

If you want to manage your photos, take a look at Tutor for Photos. And, of course, there is Tutor for iMovie. This seems to be a favorite for a lot of people. I think I know why, It’s just fun to make movies and iMovie makes it easy.

Apple does have a few productivity apps available, and the best part is they are free. There is Numbers, which is equivalent to Excel. There is also Pages, which is equivalent to Word, and Keynote, which is equivalent to Powerpoint. These are all great apps and I believe they are easier to use than the Microsoft equivalents. I have tutorials for these, Tutor for Numbers, Tutor for Pages, and Tutor for Keynote. But if you want to use Word and Excel, I have tutorials on those too – Tutor for Word and Tutor for Excel.

What about the iPad and iPhone? You may want to follow the same path and look at Tutor for iPhone with iOS 10 and 11 and Tutor for iPad with iOS 10 and 11. With both of these I would recommend watching all the lessons. These small devices are quite powerful and you may find some feature that you may want to use hidden in these lessons.

From there I would go to the core tutorials for each device again. Tutor for Contacts, Tutor for Calendar, etc. I also have Tutor for Photos and iMovie available for both the iPad and iPhone. Use the following links to see all the tutorials for the iPhone and all the tutorials for the iPad.

Lastly, if you have an Apple Watch, I may be able to help you learn more about the Apple Watch with tutorial for Apple Watch.

I hope the tutorials help in your quest to learn more about your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch.
