Pay What You Can

I don’t want the cost of these courses to keep you from reviving and reusing your old iPad. Maybe you can’t spend very much right now, even though you know this Guru Guide could really help you. So simply pay what you can afford.

No Risk Registration

Take a full month to try out the courses. If you’re not satisfied, I’ll refund your registration. You get to keep what you’ve learned. Also, I know life gets busy sometimes. I’ve paid for lots of training and products. Some I didn’t get to during the trial period. So if you sign up and 30 days fly by, let me know. I’ll fix it. I’d rather have your trust than your money.

Class & Instructor Comments
Excellent tutorials. Very informative, clear directions, perfect pacing.

Most valuable: Just learning to download an app from the 'purchased' section of the app store - so simple. Plus all the other ways to find older versions of apps.

I just finished my iPad Academy course. I want to thank you for all your great tips.  I am anxious to join your next class, when available.

Andy has been a long- time pioneer in use of the iPad. He has taught hundreds of people, via seminars, workshops, and personal coaching to enhance their use of the iPad. I've enrolled in this master class and I hope many of you will, too. Please pass this info along to any of your friends and/or colleagues who use an iPad and would like to become more proficient in its use.

That was great. I just have been pretending I knew what was what. Thanks.

Hi! I’m Andy Brovey. I’ve been teaching others to use technology for over 30 years. In 2007, Apple Inc. recognized my work and named me an Apple Distinguished Educator.

In 2010, Steve Jobs first announced the new Apple tablet computer called the iPad. A few months later, I got my first iPad and created the iPad Academy website to help others learn about Apple’s marvelous new tablet. Since then, Apple has sold more than 500 million iPads and dozens of different models. This means millions of old iPads are out there. Many of them still useable. This guide will show you how to make the most of that old iPad.


You have questions. We have answers.

Start when you can and go through the lessons at your own pace.

iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4 (4th generation) as well as the first iPad mini.

iOS Versions 8 and 9. These are the latest iOS versions available for all these old models. There may be minor differences depending on the iPad model you are using. Many of the skills you learn here also apply to later versions of the iPad and the operating system.
