These all work on Mac, iPad and iPhone.

The meeting - 18 people including three new faces - was taken through the basics… Read more…

Although the new features of Sierra are fully documented on Apple's website, it was interesting to see them demonstrated and much discussion ensued to clarify exactly how the updates worked. Regulars at Bournemouth will be unsurprised to learn that the Photos updates, in particular, attracted much interest and interrogation.

A show of hands indicated that not many members had… Read more…

We were delighted to welcome back John L’s friend Jenny who spoke to us last year about building a 3D printer under the auspices of U3A.

Jenny ran through the building of her printer which clearly needed Charles&rsquo… Read more…

There were 9 members at this meeting, and we had a slightly delayed start due to an unexpected room change!
The meeting today was not as technical as normal, but still had a link with Apple devices.

Euan, from Dorchester, gave us a very interesting talk about how punctuation has evolved over the years.

John Hooper suggested that most of us never dig very deeply into the Settings on either IOS or Mac OS devices, and that it is well worth taking an in-depth look at Settings as it offers many useful and customisable options. As they pretty well parallel each other, he concentrated on IOS. Firstly he showed the structure of the Settings menu and how these can bring up nested subsidiary settings by selecting an item… Read more…
