About The Instructional

How many times have you downloaded a well-reviewed app or updated to the latest version of iOS or OS X, only to never quite know what it can do or how to use it?

It's something I'd wager almost every iOS or Mac device owner has done at some point, I certainly have. Surprisingly, while there are many, many sources for app reviews, roundups and Apple news, there are very few that focus on educating readers about how best to use their Apple products or the apps they run.

The Instructional provides in-depth guides and workflows for Mac and iOS, picking up where most app reviews finish.

The site has something for everyone, from new iPad owners to seasoned Mac users. Each guide will explore a particular app or feature, providing easy and clear instructions and steps so you can follow along.

You won't find any posts about rumours, news or opinion. Instead, I only want to provide content that enhances your experience and knowledge of Apple's products, as well as the apps you use.

Site History

The Instructional was originally founded by Jordan Merrick, a regular contributor on many other sites, providing in-depth reviews, guides and tutorials that revolve heavily around the Apple ecosystem.

In late 2014, the ownership of the site was transferred over to Sam Berson, a young web developer with a passion for high quality work. Sam also runs wpContent, a WordPress blog about WordPress, and will be working on improving The Instructional over the next few months.
