- Hello, and welcome to iPhone and iPod Touch Essential Training. I'm Garrick Chow. The iPhone is one of the most popular, powerful, and easy to use smart phones on the market today. It's essentially a small computer you can hold in the palm of your hand, and the iPod Touch is basically an iPhone without the phone, running the same operating system and apps. In this course, we're going to take a detailed look at all the most important features of these incredibly useful devices. We'll start off by exploring the external controls and the touch screen interface, getting you up to speed with essential skills like opening and closing apps and typing with the keyless keyboard, then we'll cover the most important and frequently used applications in depth from checking your e-mail with mail, browsing the web with Safari, enjoying music and videos with the iPod, and of course using the incredibly robust phone features, including the new Facetime video chatting feature available on the iPhone 4.

We'll also look at how to find and install any of over 160,000 additional apps from the app store to further extend and enhance the capabilities of your device, and we'll wrap up with an in depth look at important preferences and settings, as well as tips for troubleshooting your device when necessary. Because the current IOS 4 operating system does not run or is not fully supported on older iPhones and iPods, the devices we're going to be covering in this course are the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4, and the second generation iPod Touch. If you have a first generation iPhone or iPhone 3G, much of what we're covering will still apply to those models but if something you see in this course doesn't look or work the same on your phone, it's most likely because it's an IOS 4 feature and not available on your model, but rest assured, this course will show you all the essential skills you'll need to not just use your device but to use it effectively, while taking advantage of all the powerful features it has to offer, so let's get's started with iPhone and iPod Touch essential training.
