    Apple Watch 1:01 - 4 classes

Bring your Apple Watch and your iPhone, both updated to watchOS 6 and iOS 13, respectively, and find out how to escape your phone from time to time.  Spring classes: Due to the COVID-19 event, this class is now being offered as an online course.

    Much Ado About Noting  - 1 class

    All About Subscriptions- 1 class

Bring along your iPad, iPhone or Mac updated to the latest version of its operating system. Due to the COVID-19 event, this class is now being offered as an online course.

    Hey Siri!  - 1 class
