Note: This is the Color Edition of "MacOS Catalina: Getting Started with MacOS 10.15 For MacBooks and iMacs" If you have purchased the notebook or computer or are just curious about seeing more about what MacOS can do for you, then you'll see it in this book.

If you just want a simple guide that tells you what you need to know, so you can use your computer already, then this book is for you. It will also cover how to successfully make the transition from Mac to Windows. Each chapter starts with bullet points on what will be covered, so if it's something you already know, you can skip right ahead; if you only need to know how to use new features, the book is also formatted in a way that these stand out. Are you ready to start enjoying the new MacOS? Then let's get started!

In 2014, Apple announced something called CarPlay. At the time it wasn’t met with much fanfare because to play it, you needed a radio in your car that most people didn’t have. Today, many newer cars have it pre-installed; if you aren’t one of the lucky ones, you can buy a compatible radio with CarPlay for less than $200—before installation. Whether you are thinking about getting it or you want to know how to use it, this book will help you out. This book is not endorsed by Apple and should be considered unofficial.

It used to be a few times a year Apple would take the stage and announce something that everyone’s head exploded over! The iPhone! The iPad! The Apple Watch! The iPod! That still happens today, but Apple also is well aware of the reality: most people don’t upgrade to new hardware every year. How does a company make money when that happens? In a word: services. In the past few years (especially in 2019) Apple announced several services—things people would opt into to pay for monthly. It was a way to continue making money even when people were not buying hardware. For it to work, Apple knew it had to be good. They couldn’t just offer a subpar service and expect people to pay because it said Apple. It had to be good. And it is! This book will walk you through those services and show you how to get the most out of them.

If you have a website, then you have probably already heard all about rate, exit rate, organic search traffic, and more. They’re nice words, but how do you use them to understand your visitors and get more? Google Analytics is a powerful resource that can tell you the smallest details about your visitor traffic, but if you are asking yourself what it means or why it even matters, then you’re like most businesses. Analytics is so data heavy that you can be easily overwhelmed and lost. If you are new to Analytics, or even have used it a few times, then this guide will help you understand what’s in front of your eyes. It won’t get into the weeds with professional tips better suited for professional marketers. It also won’t go into detail about advanced Analytics elements—the keyword here is Basics!

The stage was set in September 2018. It was iPhone’s big event. The day where journalist and Apple fans alike lusted over the latest and greatest iPhone. But a funny thing happened on the way to the announcement: Apple Watch Series 4 took everyone's breath away! The Apple Watch has, of course, been around for three years and seen several updates. But 2018 was different: the watch was finally ready for the masses. This wasn’t a watch for early adopters or fitness buffs--this was the watch your parents and grandparents would get behind. In addition to all the great features Apple Watch has always had, series 4 is slimmer (yet with a screen that is somehow bigger), has optional cellular for making phone calls and streaming music without your phone, and drop detection (so if you fall and can’t get up, the fire department is dispatched to your location). Everything about it was designed to motivate you to be more active. As amazing as all the new features are, it’s not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrated initial experience. The point of this book is to help new Apple Watch users (and users updating to Watch OS 6 from an older device) get the most out their investment. Are you ready to start enjoying your new Apple Watch? Then let’s get started! Note: This book is not endorsed by Apple and should be considered unofficial.

There’s a pretty good chance your first computer was a Windows computer—of maybe even just DOS. MacOS isn’t complicated but switching from another operating system can be a little confusing at first.

It’s going to cover only what most people want to know—so if you are looking for something highly technical that teaches you how to set up private virtual networks, then keep looking.

Every September, Apple holds a press conference to get us excited about the newest gadgets that are certain to suck your wallets dry. The 2018 event, of course, introduced us to the latest Apple Watch and iPhone. This year, however, Apple proved it wasn't quite done yet. In October, it held a conference to remind everyone of something that many had forgotten: The MacBook Air. It had been 10 years since Steve Jobs wowed us all by pulling a laptop out of an envelope; and it had been 5 years since the last update to the slim computer. Apple never stopped selling Airs, but most assumed its days were numbered--it's power, graphics, and design just didn't cut it anymore. Then October came, and Apple proudly reminded everyone that it had not forgotten about the once beloved device. It introduced a new MacBook Air with all the features you'd expect from a modern slim computer: retina display, top of the line processor, memory, and amazing battery life. MacBook Air was suddenly relevant again. If you have purchased the notebook or are just curious about seeing more about what Mac OS can do for you, then you'll see it in this book. This book is intended for people who want to get started quickly with the MacBook Air. For that reason, it's not as comprehensive as other guides. If you want to know about some feature buried deep under the hood that you'll never use, then there are other books for you--I'm sure they'll make good doorstops when you finish. If you just want a simple guide that tells you what you need to know, so you can use your computer already, then this book is for you. If you're new to Mac--perhaps switching over from Windows, then this book will help you figure out all the similarities and differences; because so many people come to Mac from Windows, this book is written in a way to help with that transition. I purposely have done my best to make this handbook a little more casual and fun then what you expect from most Mac OS manuals. Mac OS is an operating system, and any guide you read should be an equally fun read. Each chapter starts with bullet points on what will be covered, so if something you already know, you can skip right ahead; if you only need to know how to use new features, the book is also formatted in a way that these stand out.

For 40-some-odd years, the world of spreadsheets has been ruled by one king: Microsoft Excel. Sure, there were far away challengers that tried to overtake the beast—I’m looking at you, Lotus 1-2-3—but none have come close to dethroning the powerful tool…until Google Sheets. So what is Google Sheets? It’s a cloud-based spreadsheet. Think Excel, but online. “But Excel is online,” you say. Yes! But Google was there first, and really has the advantage over Excel in this arena. It’s quicker and easier to use for collaboration. Google Sheets is also free; Excel has monthly/yearly subscriptions. If you’d like to get the most out of the software, then let’s get started! Note: This book is the Google Sheets portion of the larger work: The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Google Apps (G Suite). This book is not endorsed by Alphabet, Inc.
