iPhone Courses

Oasis Connections offers two iPhone courses. iPhone: The Complete Guide is a comprehensive course designed for a 6-session class. This course starts with the basics and covers all of the installed apps. iPhone: The Basics is comprised of the first two sections of the comprehensive course (Getting Started and Basic skills and features) for those needing a shorter course.

Instructor Information

Class scheduling note:

Apple releases a new operating system every year in mid September. iPhone and iPad users usually adopt new operating systems very quickly, around 50% at the 4 week mark at least. Be aware that scheduling classes either immediately before or after the release can result in issues with training manuals.

This course covers iPhone use and features. Note that the iPad and iPhone course cover the same iOS material but each also includes features unique to the iPhone or iPad.

Instructors may run into users of older iOS versions in any class, especially since not all older devices are eligible for the newest OS. Users with older operating systems or devices may not have all of the functions but most of the course will still be relevant. We recommend using the latest iOS manual in all classes but have left legacy versions available for download.

If you have the ability to contact students ahead of the class, remind them to:

  • Bring a fully charged device to class.
  • Make sure they bring their Apple ID and password if they have one.
  • Make sure they bring password information for any other email or social media accounts to class.
  • Bring any iPad accessories they want to share.

We suggest having a simple Wi-Fi password and posting it prominently to reduce time and errors for students logging on.
