Do you have a new iPhone and want to learn how to use it? Do you really just need someone to show you the basics of using/owning an iPhone? In this video, David A. Cox from PCClassesOnline.com will show you all the basics and some extra tricks.and tips for an iPhone running iOS 7.
Many of these tips also apply to iPads running iOS 7. While Apple has released iOS 8 for the newer iPhones and iPads, people who use older devices like the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, may decide to stay on iOS 7. Earlier devices such as the iPad 1 and iPhones before the 4S will not be able to update to iOS 8.
