    Apple 300Get MORE from your iPad & Mac Devices

    If you have an iPad, Mac computer, iPhone, even the new Apple Watch or are thinking of buying one, we would like to invite you to join Sevenoaks U3A Apple Group.  The format of the meetings is that we start with a presentation on a wide variety of subjects to help you get the best out of your Apple devices.  The subjects include using the software, most of which is free, better understanding of the operating systems that run your devices such as your Mac computer and IOS for your iPad, iPhone and the new Apple Watch.

    We then have a break for tea during which you can join one of our Round Table discussion groups to share with other members and hopefully help find a solution to any problem you may have.

    A large number of members joined the group at the open day on the 23rd September in 2015, and from meeting them most people want more basic information and help to use their iPad, Mac computer or iPhone.

    Apple recently launched what they think is the future of television and we will be presenting this, together with information about taking photos and sending them to your friends. We also hope to cover using Word, Excel, etc, on a Mac

    Send an email to Dave Simmons to receive the agenda.
