  • Apple Unveils iPad Tutorial Videos



    Given the excitement swirling around today's video release, one might otherwise think a blockbuster film like Avatar just got an early DVD release. Actually, its Apple's latest video production that is all the rage. Today, Cupertino revealed a series of iPad tutorial videos designed to instruct users on the inner and outer workings of the forthcoming tablet.

    On Saturday, the Juggernaut multimedia tablet will finally reach consumers. To help light a fire under this weekend's big roll-out, Apple has produced eleven iPad tutorial videos that cover a wide range of topics, from the much-hyped iBooks to the iPad incarnation of the iWork applications. In a nutshell, pretty much every essential function you could want an explanation of is delivered in some detail on one of the videos.

    Each video spans only a few minutes but, collectively, they serve as a comprehensive guide to the iPad's multifaceted capabilities and, as a result, will likely serve up a plethora of useful tips to users who may be so excited to use their new "toy" come Saturday, that many attributes of the tablet would probably otherwise go initially unnoticed.

    In short, the vids dish on iPad versions of Mobile Safari, Mail and Photos, how to enjoy multimedia experiences like video and music, and, naturally, how to purchase digital content like ebooks from the iBookStore. You can check out Apple’s iPad tutorial videos (which are available in QuickTime format) on the Apple website.

      so, you didn't watch them then. how can you watch the keynote, pages and numbers videos and tell me that that's been done before on a like device?

      you win, I haven't made time to watch them. however in my defense, the last words I read were 'done on a like device'

      i still think the first 2 (maybe 3) generations of the iPad are a Venus fly trap for apple fanboys - no offense intended, this is my observation.

      before someone flames me, consider the MMi article about iPad owners having to pay for software upgrades and potentially not receiving all available features.

      this is similar to the iPod touch users and 3.0(.1?) and inline with apple's sales scheme, but I have lived in a dark hole in which I have not witnessed a charge for *key* software updates to any other major OS.

      not to mention, given the amount an iPhone can do(phone replacement), shouldn't we expect the iPad (netbook replacement) to have the ability to do so much more than what is advertised? i think even little brother iPhone 3gs would be plenty capable to run modified versions of the above mentioned software (?not familiar with numbers or pages but if apple doesn't bring them to the iPhone, they must clearly be after generating iPad hype)
      far from magical if you ask me.

      I wish your little brother luck making presentations on that 3.5" display.

      man I hope they don't try and make the iwork apps run on the iphone man it would be miserable to try and use those apps on such a tiny screen. Seriously man watch the videos lol
