Important Notice For All TTJ Premium Support and Training Customers

This is a reminder that all customers who have a service plan of any kind with us, such as the TTJ Premium Support Gold package or the TTJ Gold Training Package, must be running the latest versions of Apple’s software by no later than January 31, 2020. This includes running iOS 13.X, iPad OS 13.X, TVOS 13.X, Watch OS 6.X, and HomePod Software 13.X. The reason we do this is so that we may provide the most consistent support and training to all of our valued customers, while ensuring that you are able to take advantage of all the latest features, functionality, and enhancements to security and privacy.

If you have not updated your devices and you need training and support from us, we may ask you to update your devices, or permit us to do so, before providing any further support or operational assistance. If your devices are not able to support the latest Apple software, your coverage will remain in effect through the end of your current coverage period, or until all of your training hours are used up, but you will not be eligible to renew your service agreement when it does expire, or purchase additional training and support options, unless you upgrade to a device that can run the latest software. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter, and we look forward to continuing to be the only tech you’ll ever need!

In addition to live sessions, these two courses will make use of the iTunes U platform to distribute all course-related materials, assignments, discussions, announcements, clean audio recordings and demos, video materials, text documentation, and much more.

Audio tutorials are coming next week to this blog, and the first day of each course will be partially devoted to using iTunes U.

Should you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Thank you, and we look forward to working with you very soon.:)

Free Courses Begin Soon. Time to Get Ready

Please read this entire page immediately and contact TTJ if you have any questions.

It is almost time for our next courses to begin. The free course, Learning Voiceover In and Out, begins Monday, January 13, 2020, and the course, iPad For All Computing, begins Monday April 6. If you have already registered for these courses in the fall, we have all your info and are including you in the upcoming rosters. However, there is still one more step necessary to complete registration. You must enroll in the iTunes U portion of each course. This must be done using the Enrollment Gateway for each of the two individual courses. You must visit the Enrollment Gateways from an iPhone, iPad, or an iPod Touch. You will not be able to do so from any other device. Therefore if you are currently reading this post on any other device, please return to this page using your Apple iOS or iPad OS device. Note that TTJ cannot manually enroll you over the phone. You must complete the enrollment process yourself, using either the Enrollment Gateways or the Course Codes.

Read on to learn more:

TTJ uses the iTunes U portion for our spring courses. This means that both the Voiceover course starting January 13 and the iPad course starting in April will make use of iTunes U, in addition to still using Zoom or Dabel for live sessions. When you initially completed the registration form indicating your intent to join, you provided all your info to TTJ, and we are now expecting you in Zoom. However, you must also enroll in the iTunes U portion for one or both courses. If you wish to participate in both the Voiceover course and the iPad course, you will need to enroll separately in each iTunes U course. To do so, use the enroll links below. If taking both courses, start with the first enroll link, for the Voiceover course. After completing enrollment in that course, immediately return to this page to choose the second enroll link, the one for the iPad course.

It is very important that you enroll in both courses as quickly as possible, as available space will fill up fast, and enrollment in iTunes U courses is handled on a first come, first served basis. Do not wait! Enroll now using the links below! Then, stay tuned to this blog for iTunes U tutorials and other important course details, coming next week. If you are unable to properly use the Enrollment Gateways, please contact TTJ for a course code for one or both courses. Should you have any questions, please get in touch with us.

    Big Day for Apple as Several Updates Are Released

    Apple today released updates to iOS and iPad OS 13.2. Software updates were also released for the AppleTV. Rounding out today’s updates was the HomePod Software update.

    Today’s updates saw the addition of several new features, including the ability to have Siri announce incoming messages on AirPods automatically, new Emoji, new HomeKit options, new Siri privacy features, and more. Additionally, new features, such as Handoff, voice recognition, ambient sounds, and more arrived on the HomePod. Stay tuned to this blog for tips on all the new features.

    Apple also announced the new AirPods Pro, available to order immediately for $249. The AirPods Pro will supplement the existing AirPods, with a new model, featuring noise canceling features, higher sound quality, and multiple tips to accommodate just about any size ear.

    This has been an incredible year for Apple already, with new hardware, software, and services released in basically every category throughout the year, and with AppleTV Plus scheduled for release this Friday, it doesn’t look like things will be slowing down any time soon. There are even a few, as yet unreleased products rumored to be in the pipeline. These include the much-anticipated Mac Pro, a new 16 inch MacBook, and more. There is even evidence of the potential release of a device tracker that can be placed on keys, remotes, and more, similar to the Tile products, though this has not been confirmed by a Apple at this point. Either way, there’s never been a better time to be an Apple user than right now.
