Nine members gathered in Solutions’ smart new shop to hear about High Sierra (Mac OS 10.13) from Tony Still.

In their determination to keep to the release schedule, it seems that High Sierra was released with a few fairly serious issues. Most have been fixed through a couple of updates, although XProtect (the built-in virus protector) still has problems (uses old virus data) [UPDATE: Looks like this has been fixed… Read more…

Mick listed the hardware configurations that can be upgraded to IOS 11. Mildly underwhelmed by the update, he confirmed it is much more significant on the iPad than iPhone and particularly so for those fortunate enough to have an iPad Pro and Apple pencil. A feature specific to the iPhone is Emergency SOS: press the power button five times, the phone locks and lets you “slide” to emergency services. Touch ID is disabled… Read more…

For September, 14 members gathered in Solutions' new shop to try out our new venue. We found an immediate benefit by using the permanently installed large screen Apple TV display to demonstrate iOS 11 live as Tony and David presented its features.

The OS had been available for about 24 hours and Tony pointed out a number of differences from the Beta Test versions discussed on the Web. We concentrated on the iPad… Read more…

Michael showed us extensive range of capabilities of Preview in document and image management, from scanning, editing images, adding texts and highlights etc using the markup menu and converting documents to different formats. Preview comes as part of the Apple bundled software and the version is related to the operating system and cannot be updated independently. Working with pdfs Preview enables the combining of documents, re-sorting, deleting and adding pages. Combine this to the… Read more…

There were nine members at this month’s meeting.

We had a very interesting presentation titled 'Twiddling Type', given by Euan from Dorchester.

Next… Read more…
