Productivity Bundle: macOS Automation + Extreme iOS & iPadOS

Learn how to automate everyday tasks and allow Mac to take care of the most tedious and error-prone activities for you. One of macOS' unique advantages over other popular desktop platforms is its built-in automation infrastructure. AppleScript, Automator, and a few other 3rd party tools can make your computer life much easier, saving you both time and money. This hands-on course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of AppleScript language and guide you through using the most popular built-in and 3rd party automation tools.

Learn about various iOS/iPadOS features, the ways in which to use them most efficiently and improve your everyday productivity. We will not so much discuss the technical underpinnings of the platforms, but rather focus on how to use iPhone and iPad devices in the most beneficial way. We will, among other things, scrutinize Settings, Files and iCloud, discuss backups, external hardware and accessories, and automation possibilities.
