According to a Pew study, 77 percent of Americans own smartphones and more than half own a tablet. However, not everyone knows how to adequately use the devices. The Wichita Public Library is offering a class for people to learn more – particularly for iPhone and iPad users.

The class will cover a range of things that Apple devices can do.

For nine years, Ben Ropp has been a technology trainer librarian at Wichita Public Library. Ropp says the class will basically give users a tour of their device.

"Learning to adjust different settings and getting around on the device, how to install new apps and use different apps," Ropp says. "It’s sort of a tips and tricks how to class."

Ropp says this class will focus on Apple products, but training on Android devices are offered one-on-one through the library’s Book-A-Librarian program.

The iPhone and iPad class will be held at the Maya Angelou Library on Thursday, May 18, from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Registration is free, but required.
