Dan's Tutorials

Helping people learn more about their Apple devices through video tutorials, webinars, and classes.

Over 2,100 Lessons

I have over 2,100 Lessons for the Mac, iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. These lessons are designed to be easy-to-follow and range from a short 3 minutes to some being over 10 minutes. I add more videos on a regular basis. These videos are based off tips I find around the web to members submissions asking me how something works.

Live Online Classes & Webinars

I host online classes and webinars on a regular basis. These events are held through Zoom and cover a wide range of subjects. Past classes have covered Keynote, Pages, Spark Mail, organizing your photos, and using Apple Tech when Traveling. Webinars are usually in the format of an Ask Me Anything (AMA).

Apple News from Multiple Sources

I aggregate news from various Apple related websites including Apple's News Room, Daring Fireball by John Gruber, Six Colors by Jason Snell, iMore, and others. When you use my site for a search, it includes over 10,000 articles from these sources, so you can easily search multiple sites from one site.

AI Assistant

Dan's Tutorials now features an exclusive AI assistant chatbot designed to provide on-demand support for your Apple device questions. Simply ask Dan's AI anything from how to reset your iPhone to what Focus Mode is and how to enable it - and get helpful information supplemented by the latest ChatGPT intelligence.

Worldwide Membership

I have happy members from around the world. Of course the majority of my members are from the United States, as that is where I am from, but I also have members from the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, New Zealand, and Switzerland, India, and more.

Supporting Small Business

When you become a member, you are helping support a small business owned by my wife and I. It is run out of our house where I use our spare bedroom as my office and studio. I create the tutorials, host the classes and meetings, I design and update the website, all from my Mac, iPad, and iPhone.
