TTJ Announces 2020-21 Free Course Offerings – Our Most Incredible Season Yet!

At our second annual TTJ Tech Summit, which was held on Saturday, July 25, The Tech Juggernaut revealed its plans for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Training Season. This year promises to be our best ever, with something for everyone! All our courses will be completely updated for iOS and iPad OS 14 and all its features. Our Voiceover course will begin earlier this year and will provide the most thorough and in-depth training we’ve offered thus far. Our flagship iPad course, completely redesigned for iPad OS 14, will provide 12 weeks of training, and will cover the most extensive curriculum of any of our courses so far. We will also further enhance the learning experience by providing several mini courses on subjects like cutting the cord, home automation, and keeping your identity private and secure in the digital world. Finally, we are pleased to offer, for the very first time, a separate course on the Mac, as well as mini courses on AppleTV, HomePod, and Apple Watch. We’ll round out this years offerings with a mini course on Apple Pay, electronic payments, and tips for financial success.

The TTJ Instructor Team is already hard at work, testing and learning the new software versions, so we’re fully prepared to offer the same level of training and support you have come to expect. As in past years, classes will be held live, using online conferencing software, and will also feature a digital learning platform, to facilitate the distribution of audio and video tutorials, written documentation, web links. Assignments, discussions, and more. The combined total of live and on-demand instruction will provide hundreds of hours of useful resources, created by certified instructors with the passion for helping others learn about these life-changing and empowering Apple products. Perhaps best of all, is the fact that these courses will remain completely free for all students. There are no entrance fees, no subscriptions, and no purchase necessary. For those who wish to go beyond what is taught in our courses, or for those who need individualized training, other training and support packages are available for a fee.

Classes are set to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning September 14, 2020, and running through May 26, 2021. Registration opens Monday August 10, 2020, so get ready, and stay tuned for more information.

TTJ Tech Tip: All About Do Not Disturb

You can use Do Not Disturb when you’re sleeping, at church, at work, in class, during family dinner, at a business meeting, or just trying to record the next viral YouTube video, so you won’t be interrupted during those critical moments. Do Not Disturb is an extremely robust feature, so we’ll attempt to explain it in this article.

Simple Toggle:

You can quickly turn Do Not Disturb on or off, by opening Control Center. First, swipe one finger down from the top right corner of your device (Voiceover users should place one finger at the top edge of the display, then swipe down to the second blip sound). Now, tap the moon icon (double-tap for VO users – Voiceover says Do Not Disturb), to turn it on indefinitely. Tap it again to turn Do Not Disturb off.

Note that by default, Do Not Disturb only applies when the device is locked. To change this, see the below section on Do Not Disturb Settings.

Contextual Options:

Want more control over Do Not Disturb than just a simple toggle? Instead of tapping on the icon in Control Center, perform a long press (tap and hold, or double-tap and hold with VO), and select the option you want from the context menu that appears. You can usually choose to turn on Do Not Disturb for an hour, or until a later part of the day, such as evening. You can also turn it on until you leave your current location – great for when you’re trying to catch that movie. If you have an event on your calendar when you long press the Do Not Disturb icon, you will also see the option to turn it on until the end of the current event.

Note that by default, Do Not Disturb only applies when the device is locked. To change this, see the below section on Do Not Disturb Settings.

Do Not Disturb During Bed Time:

You can set up Bedtime Mode in the Clock app, so you’ll receive a reminder when it is time to go to bed, and an alarm when it is time to wake up. You can choose many Bedtime options, including to which days of the week the Bedtime applies. As part of these Bedtime options, you can turn on the toggle for, Do Not Disturb During Bedtime. Now, whenever your specified bed time occurs, this setting will automatically be turned on. During Bedtime Mode, calls and notifications will be silenced, and your device’s Lock Screen will be dimmed, only showing the time and the moon icon. Notifications will not appear on the Lock Screen during this scheduled quiet time. If you need to see notifications during quiet hours, open Notification Center. Otherwise, when your alarm goes off in the morning and you turn off the alarm, you will be greeted with a, Good Morning, screen, which displays the current outside temperature and weather conditions for the day. Once you dismiss this screen, you will be able to see any notifications you may have missed while you were asleep. Note that you can also choose to turn on Down Time during these quiet hours. For more information, visit ScreenTime Settings.

Do Not Disturb On a Schedule:

In addition to the scheduled Bedtime Mode, it is possible to have a second quiet period scheduled. Note that this scheduled quiet time can be used with or without the Lock Screen dimmed, but you cannot choose on which days of the week this scheduled quiet time occurs. It will occur automatically, every day at the specified time. To add a schedule for Do Not Disturb, open Settings>Do Not Disturb>Scheduled, and turn the toggle to On, then tap on the button to choose the schedule. If Do Not Disturb turns on when you do not want it, simply turn it off in Control Center, after it has turned on.

Do Not Disturb Settings:

In addition to the above schedule options, you can control other aspects of Do Not Disturb. Open Settings>Do Not Disturb to customize the following options:

  • Toggle Do Not Disturb on or off, just like in Control Center
  • Set a schedule for Do Not Disturb (in addition to the Bedtime schedule available in the Clock app)
  • Choose whether to dim the Lock Screen during a scheduled Do Not Disturb
  • Choose whether Do Not Disturb applies only when the device is locked or at all times (see below)
  • Specify exceptions to Do Not Disturb, such as groups of Contacts and repeated calls (see below)
  • Select Drive Mode options (iPhone only)
  • The “Silence” options are perhaps some of the most critical options to configure. By default, silence is set to “When Locked”. This means that even if Do Not Disturb is turned on, notifications, including phone calls, text messages, and more, will continue to interrupt you while you are using your device. The notifications will only be silenced when your device is asleep and locked. You can change this setting to “Always”. When Silence is set to Always, all notifications will be silenced, no matter what you are doing, while Do Not Disturb is turned on. If you expect to silence notifications during video or audio recordings, Zoom calls, and other important events where you might still be using your device, change the Silence setting to Always.
  • Do Not Disturb Exceptions:

    From Settings>Do Not Disturb, you can specify groups of Contacts that will not be affected by Do Not Disturb. For example, you can choose Favorites. Now, when someone from your iPhone favorites calls you, their calls will get through, even if Do Not Disturb is turned on. Note that this applies only to phone calls – not Text Messages.

    You can also turn on the Repeated Calls option. When this is on, anyone who calls you more than once within a three minute time period will get through to you, even if Do Not Disturb is turned on.

    Emergency Bypass:

    Emergency Bypass is a contact-specific setting that will always pass a call or text message through to you, no matter what. This is useful for close family members, such as children or other loved ones, as well as for security system monitoring companies for example. The Emergency Bypass setting, as stated, is specific to each contact. Once again, you must turn this setting on for each individual contact for whom you desire to make use of the feature. To do so, open the Contacts app, or the Phone app (iPhone). If using the Phone app, tap on the Contacts tab at the bottom of the screen. Locate the contact you wish to modify and tap on it to display the contact card. Tap edit. Now, scroll down until you locate, “Ring Tone”, and, “Text Tone”. Tap on Ring Tone or Text Tone. You will now be able to choose a custom sound and vibration pattern, or stick with the defaults. On this screen is the Emergency Bypass setting. Toggle it on. You can do this for either phone calls (Ring Tone) or text messages (Text Tone), or you can turn it on for both. When you are finished, go back to the main Edit screen and tap Done to save your changes.

    Important: Emergency Bypass is an aggressive override option that should only be used for critically important contacts. Contacts for whom Emergency Bypass is turned on will cause your phone to ring, regardless whether you are in Bedtime mode or any other form of Do Not Disturb. Also, even if you have muted all sounds, even if the Side Switch is set to Silent (iPhone), tones will sound for the said contacts. The only way to avoid hearing sounds for calls or texts from someone with Emergency Bypass, is to turn your phone completely off or place it in Airplane Mode.

    Do Not Disturb For Individual Apps:

    It is possible to have notifications for individual apps delivered quietly. This can be useful if you wish to see notifications for a specific app after they occur, but you don’t want to be bothered by them when they are happening. To use this option, when a notification appears for a specific app, long press on the notification (iPhone) or swipe left on it (iPads and iPhone SE). Voiceover users, on iPad and iPhone SE, swipe up or down on the notification until you hear “More” or “View”, then double-tap. Now, choose the “Manage” option, then choose “Deliver Quietly”. When you turn on “Deliver Quietly” for a particular app, you will no longer hear notifications for that app, and its banners will not appear either. The only way to see these notifications is from Notification Center.

    Do Not Disturb App Exceptions:

    Just as you may wish for some app notifications to remain quiet even when Do Not Disturb is off, there may be some apps for which you would like to receive notifications, even if DND is turned on. App developers can request a special token for their app, if the app is determined to serve a critical function, such as severe weather alerts, alarm triggered warnings, and so on. Not all apps support this feature. If you think a particular app may have an exception feature, open Settings>Notifications, then tap on the app in question. If the feature is supported, it will be available as a toggle. If you do not see such a toggle, contact the app developer to request this feature.

    Driving Mode Options:

    If you have an iPhone, you can turn on Do Not Disturb While Driving, or you can have it turn on automatically for you. From Settings>Do Not Disturb, you can specify whether the feature is turned on whenever vehicle movement is detected, when you connect to CarPlay/Bluetooth car systems, or whether the feature must be invoked manually. When this Do Not Disturb While Driving feature is turned on, notifications will be silenced and available in Notification Center for later review. Favorite contacts who text you will receive an auto-generated text message from you, indicating that you are currently driving and will get back to them as soon as it is safe to do so. You can also specify whether repeat calls can get through. Additionally, people who receive the aforementioned auto-generated text message can reply “Urgent”, so their messages will get through to you.

    You can add a manual toggle for Drive Mode to Control Center. To do so, open Settings>Control Center>Customize Controls, then choose “Do Not Disturb While Driving”.

    My Review Of the iPad Seventh Generation – They’ve Done It Again

    It has been about seven months since Apple introduced the Seventh Generation iPad, and I, content at that time with my Sixth Generation iPad, and then my 11 Inch iPad Pro, saw no real reason to give the new Seventh Gen model anything more than a passing thumbs up as I went about my life and my business. Sure, I had a few customers who purchased it, upon my recommendation nonetheless, but beyond assisting with the purchase and the initial setup process, I didn’t give it much thought. Then in March 2020, the world changed suddenly, and people were using technology in new ways, becoming more reliant on it than ever before. The media quickly took this opportunity to write about the Seventh Gen iPad, with some even calling it the device of the pandemic, or the best device of 2020.

    Around that same time, my daughter began expressing to me that she really wanted a new iPad, mostly because her 32GB model simply could not hold all of her apps any longer. It was then that I paid serious attention to this iPad, spec for spec, feature for feature, and dollar for precious dollar. It was in early April of 2018 that I gained a deep affection for what some refer to as Apple’s budget iPad. I personally find the term “budget”, completely inappropriate for this series of iPads – even offensive, and certainly inaccurate. That 2018 iPad was the Sixth Gen model, and I had more of my customers decide to buy that iPad than all other iPad models combined. Even as I sat with my 2018 iPad Pro, with its Liquid Retina Display, four speaker audio, and True Depth Camera with Face ID and Animoji, I always held a special place in my heart for that Sixth Gen iPad, and as a logical successor, the Seventh Gen iPad. Now, after seriously studying the Seventh Generation iPad, and using it actively, I have added to that fondness, a deep curiosity for why any person with the means to do so would not drop everything you are doing, just to order one of these awesome units. Sure, the Seventh Generation iPad does not have the most of anything (power, storage, best display, etc), and yet, it offers the best combination of everything, without sacrificing or compromising in any way.

    Why All the Hype?

    Ok, so it must be said that if Apple made a toothpaste, or a lunch meat, I would run out and buy it without so much as a second thought. Everything Apple makes is awesome. I do not in any respect dislike any of their other iPad models, including the fantastic iPad Pro units. So why then am I shouting from the rooftops about this Seventh Gen model, arguably the entry model, more than all the others? It’s because with this model, Apple has done what it seems only Apple can do. They have built a machine that is in every respect as high-quality as the most expensive models. It still offers Wi-Fi Plus Cellular configurations, runs the exact same apps as the pro models, and comes with the same, award-winning support options. It even supports the Apple Pencil and Logitech Crayon, and features the Smart Connecter, which means it supports Apple’s Smart Keyboard. So, with a Seventh Generation iPad, you can honestly do exactly the same things you can do on an iPad Pro, for typically half the price. Can you do those things quite as quickly? Is everything just as fast, just as smooth, and just as vivid? Well, that depends. For about 90% or more of users, I dare say that the answer is yes. But even if the answer is, not quite, we’re talking about a few extra seconds here and there – not hours upon hours. This is because Apple has built both the hardware and the software for the iPad, which means they know how to squeeze every ounce of power, graphics processing, battery life, and general performance out of every unit they make. No other tech company in the world can make such a claim.

    Sure, if you were to hold an iPad Seventh Generation and an iPad Pro side-by-side and view them together, you’re likely going to notice the difference. You’ll be able to tell exactly why people rave about the fully laminated display of the Pro, with its anti reflective coating and its rounded corners. You’ll hear the benefits of four-speaker audio. And if you managed to pass even so much as kindergarten math, you’ll be able to count the extra seconds, albeit only a few, that it might take your Seventh Gen iPad to perform resource-intensive tasks. However, you’ll also be able to look at the charges on your Apple Card, or on any other payment method, and see the vast difference in what you had to spend to get that iPad Pro and some corresponding accessories, and what you spent on the Seventh Gen iPad with its equally capable accessories.

    Then, you might ask yourself whether the tiny gap in the display of the Seventh Gen iPad is really that noticeable, whether two speakers instead of four is really an issue, and whether you actually take enough pictures with your iPad’s camera to warrant those extra features, when you also happen to have an iPhone with an amazing camera, and when the Seventh Gen iPad still has cameras that do an awesome job. Only you can answer those questions for your individual circumstances, and there’s no right or wrong answer, but I think it is safe to say that for most, this Seventh Gen iPad deserves a spot at or near the top of everyone’s must-have list.

    Don’t Be Fooled By the Name!

    Not gonna lie, I’ve seen a few people who think they need an iPad Pro, simply because they plan to use their iPad for professional purposes. How can I possibly buy an iPad that doesn’t have the word “Pro” in it, if I want to design and create with it? The answer is, you can easily do just that. Do not be mislead by the term Pro. You can do anything, with any iPad in Apple’s current lineup. Need to create and edit movies or audio, edit photos, run your business, and more? These things and more can be done on every iPad that Apple sells. Apple actually added an extra GB of memory to the Seventh Gen iPad, so it has no problem running pro-level apps. This also means that if you’re a gamer, you won’t be left out either. Although the iPad Seventh Gen runs the A10 Fusion Chip, rather than sporting the A12X and A12Z chips sported on recent iPad Pro models, the A10 Fusion is a solid chip that still offers desktop-class performance, and that easily matches the capabilities offered by modern traditional computers, even surpassing some. Once again, this is thanks in no small way to the fact that Apple makes both the hardware and the software.

    When it comes to graphics, the Seventh Generation iPad is also no slouch. Nor can it be said that there is anything lackluster about the gorgeous Retina Display of the Seventh Gen iPad, which has been increased in size from 9.7 to 10.2 Inches since the Sixth Gen model. When it comes to audio, the Seventh Gen iPad will again not disappoint. While it offers two speakers instead of four, it still offers rich, clear, stereo sound that will please the ear. And though it has fewer microphones than the Pro model, the ones it does offer will truly astonish even the jaded listener, as they can easily record spoken audio in something shockingly close to studio quality.

    Ok, so the cameras don’t offer all the features available in the iPad Pro models – Truetone Flash, Face ID and Animoji, and so on, they still provide more than adequate stills and awesome video recording in HD. You can still take Live Photo’s, pano shots, slow motion and timelapes videos, and much more. And when it comes to the lack of Face ID, let us remember that Touch ID is still industry-leading and provides the security, privacy, and convenience you’ll love when unlocking your iPad, making purchases, and more.

    Design wise, the iPad Seventh Gen sports the classic iPad design which some people actually prefer. It comes in three colors, and it weighs in at only 1.09LBS for the Wi-Fi Plus Cellular model. Speaking of cellular, we highly recommend that you spend the extra $130 necessary to get an iPad with cellular capability. You can easily sign up for a data plan right on your iPad, cancel it if you no longer want it, and more. This added convenience, coupled with the GPS chip offered only on the Cellular models, truly provides a revolutionary experience.

    Finally, it should be mentioned that both the Seventh Gen iPad and the iPad Pro offer adaptors that let you connect to just about any accessory, whether via HDMI, USB, Lightning, or other standards. There are SD Card readers, thumb drives, and much more available for both models. Both models also support the Smart Connecter, so you can easily use the Apple Smart Keyboard. And since both models support the Apple Pencil, you’ll have the best drawing tool at your disposal on either model. Let us also not forget that battery life will be the same, regardless of which iPad model we may get. It was stated by Apple some time ago, and it still holds true today, iPads get ten hours of battery life. Sure, this can be less if you are playing Fortnight or streaming movies the entire time, but the point is the same, both iPads are equally capable where battery life is concerned.

    The Cost Breakdown:

    When we add to all of the above factors, the difference in price, it becomes crystal clear why the iPad is suited to just about everyone – especially families and anyone involved in education – not as a secondary unit, but as the primary device. For just $329, one can purchase a Seventh Generation iPad with 32GB of storage. For just $100 more, you can quadruple this storage to 128GB. Add $130 to either of the above prices to add cellular capability to your shiny new iPad. So, even the most expensive Seventh Generation iPad will run you just $559, and that is assuming that no discounts are available, which they often are. Contrast this with the iPad Pro 11 Inch which has a starting price of $799 for 128GB in Wi-Fi Only, and which can easily rise above the $1000 mark. The very highest Pro model, the 12.9 Inch with 1TB of storage and Wi-Fi Plus Cellular, will run you $1649. Now again let’s be clear, we’re not suggesting that the iPad Pro units are overpriced or not worth the money. We are just saying that many folks will simply not be able to run out and buy something with such a price tag.

    The Story Doesn’t End Here

    Need something more than the Seventh Gen iPad without the Pro price tag? Want more storage, or think you really need that faster processor? Consider the iPad Air Third Generation. It is essentially the same as the Seventh Gen iPad, except that it does have the fully laminated display (10.5 Inch), the A12 Bionic chip, and double the storage across the board, either 64GB or 256GB. It has a starting price of $499, so it won’t run you into that thousand dollar region. The awesomeness of the Seventh Gen iPad actually makes us consider recommending the Air as an alternative to the Pro for those who feel they simply must have some of its features but are not willing to pay its price.

    So Who Needs the Pro?

    if you’ve stayed with us through this entire post, you might be wondering, why would anyone need the iPad Pro? Well, it’s quite simple. If you need a larger display, such as the 11 Inch or 12.9 Inch displays offered only on the Pro models, then you do. If you are editing movies for Hollywood as a full time career, we might recommend it, though it can be done with the Seventh Gen iPad. The internal storage alone might be enough to convince some people to spring for the Pro. The top configuration of the iPad Pro offers a whopping 1TB of storage. If you have trouble getting your fingerprints recognized, you may benefit from Face ID, thus needing the iPad Pro. Finally, if you do not have an iPhone X or newer, thus having access to awesome new camera features, Animoji, and much more, then you could probably benefit from having at least one device that does offer such features, and you might want to consider the iPad Pro.

    Conclusion:

    you really can’t go wrong with a Seventh Generation iPad. With this model, Apple has managed to keep cost to an all time low, while still including full functionality and all the features that really matter. This unit is perfectly capable, and should offer several years of reliable use, which is after all, about as much as we can ask of any tech product. If you have not yet gotten your hands on one of these units, we highly encourage you to do so. You won’t be disappointed.
