And the iPod Touch is basically an iPhone without the phone, running the same operating system and apps. In this course we're gonna take a detailed look at all the most important features of both of these devices. We'll start by exploring the external controls and the touchscreen 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 email with Mail, browsing the Web with Safari, enjoying music and videos, and of course using the incredibly robust phone features.

We'll also look at how to find and install any of over 500,000 additional apps from the App Store to further enhance and extend 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. This course will show you all the essential skills you need to not just use your device, but to use it effectively, while taking advantage of all the powerful features it has to offer.
