I just took an iPhone course to stay current and learn more about my phone. I learned more about the iCloud functions and importance. Updated to iOS 10. The new functions are kind of strange to get used to, especially the sound effects when texting.
Staying current with technology is not an option anymore unless you don’t care about connecting with others, the latest news, the latest apps to make your life better or you just want to rebel against technology.
Many of the older generation are biased against learning tech because it’s so strange and seems difficult. It is strange and can be difficult but it’s not going away. It is worth going through uncomfortably in order to stay current and possibly save lives.
