Apple products are famous for being simple; you are supposed to be able to just pick them up and use them without having to think too much about it. And while there’s a lot to be said for this approach, you sometimes end up missing out on cool features just because you never run across them. And sometimes you get in the habit of doing something a certain way when there’s actually a faster and easier way to go about it.
In his new iOS 6 Workshop, Joseph Linaschke systematically explores every facet of the operating system that powers iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. You’ll learn how to navigate and customize the interface, use the default apps included with iOS 6, and access iBooks, podcasts, and iTunes U. You’ll also get up to speed on features like Dictation, Shared Photo Streams, the Camera Connection Kit, Siri, and more. You won’t literally learn how to make your device sit up and beg, but close.
