Content and Overview
The course is designed so you do not have to know anything about the iPhone before getting started. The course is broken down to help backup your information, update your phone, then explain all the features on the iPhone.
The sections are broken down, so we can review one part of the phone at a time, before moving onto something that builds on top of it. Such as connecting the iPhone to the internet, then backing up the iPhone, to updating, to exploring new features of iOS 8.
We start with explaining the basics of the iPhone and the iOS 8 software in the first few lectures. Then we move into backing up the phone. It's important to have your iPhone backed up, so you do not lose any information on your device.
Move into how to update your device, so in the future lectures, you will have the same features and changes to be able to follow along on your own iPhone.

I am an entrepreneur who is very passionate about technology. Some of my favorite technology related companies are: Apple, Google, and Facebook. The company I started while in college is Speak Toomey LLC. Speak Toomey is a social media management company that manages small business's social networks, to help promote their company and interact with their customers. We also offer personal one-to-one training and consulting on technology products and services. We focus helping customers setup a "Google Apps for Business" account, to help make their small business more professional. I used to work for Apple, Inc before I started my company. At Apple, I learned the skills about their iPhone, iPads, and Macs and how to troubleshoot any issues that might come up. Taking all of those skills into account, that is how I started my business. Now, since having a film degree from college, I am putting all my current skills to work, with making training videos on technology, to help my clients, future clients, and students learn better about technology and the best ways to utilize the tools that are out there. Focusing on Google services, Apple services, and other technology site and tools that can help people be successful.
