Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I attend classes?

    All classes are streamed online. You can attend live classes via ANY computer, iPhone, or iPad. Our recommendation is that you use a computer or iPad to attend the class so that you can have your iPhone available to follow our step-by-step instructions.

  • What if I can’t attend a live class?

    Replays of each class will be available to watch at any time at your convenience. If you have questions while watching the replay, you can email your course instructors or ask your classmates in the class Facebook group.

  • What if I get confused by the course content?

    Each class will include the opportunity to ask the instructors questions live and get their immediate feedback. If there is an area of the course materials that confuses you throughout the week, you can email your instructors and they will cover it in the next class. You can also ask your classmates in your exclusive class Facebook group. We also offer a Personal Tutor VIP option if you would like additional one-on-one time with your instructors. With this plan you get three 20-minute one-on-one tutoring sessions with an instructor after class.

  • How is this different than an Insider Guide?

    Our courses provide a more in-depth and interactive experience. Our instructors will guide you step-by-step through the course materials. The live format allows you to ask the instructors questions and get their immediate feedback, the limited class size allows you to receive personal support from your instructors, and the exclusive Facebook group allows you to interact with your classmates.

  • How long will I have access to the course content?

    All course materials are available to you forever. Feel free to go back and rewatch replays of the classes or redownload course materials any time.

  • What sets iPhone Life apart from other sources of information?

    We’ve been helping people learn to use mobile technology for the past 30 years. We help millions of people every month and are a trusted source of reliable, easy-to-follow content.

  • What if I change my mind after I’ve paid?

    We offer a 30-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so just let us know if you’re not 100% satisfied and we will give you a full reimbursement. There’s no risk to you.

Worth Every Penny!

A college course or one-on-one tutoring would cost you thousands of dollars! And the teachers wouldn’t be anywhere near as knowledgeable and experienced as our iPhone Life instructors. This course has over 12 hours of live classes including personal Q&As with our instructors, all from the comfort of your own home. 

A new iPhone costs over $1,000. Over the course of five years you can spend over $5,000 on your service plan. All of that money is wasted if you never take the time to learn how to use this device. This course is designed to ensure you get the most out of your investment.

Absolutely No Risk

We offer a 30-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so just let us know if you’re not 100% satisfied and we will give you a full reimbursement. There’s no risk to you.
