From the man page, in case BibTeX is used from the command line:
bibtex [ -min-crossrefs=number ] [ -terse ] [ auxname ]
BibTeX reads the top-level auxiliary (.aux) file that was output
the running of latex(1) or tex(1) and creates a bibliography
file that will be incorporated into the document on subsequent
LaTeX or TeX. The auxname on the command line must be given
the .aux extension. If you don't give the auxname, the program
you for it.
From TeXShop: open the .tex file, then Typeset/BibTeX (Cmd-Shift-B).
This supposes a text editor has been used to write the .bib file
From iTeXMac: can't say, I'm not using it.

I disagree with you here: you cannot give beginners a focus on the
output, when they need to write some input in the first place in order
to get output created. Or are you considering that beginners will work
from templates only, never writing a .tex file from scratch?
Please go ahead with your idea, as we just have two very different
points of view and there's not point in trying to reconcile them,

I can't say: not having any camera, either digital or not, I do not use
iPhoto, iMovie or iDVD.
