Prior to the help session over coffee and mince pies Mick showed us various ways to prepare for Christmas with the aid of our Macs or iPads. He showed how to make bespoke Christmas cards using one of the many commercial offerings as well as doing it entirely from scratch yourself (remember to change Document Body to Layout mode when using Pages).

The assembled group demonstrated their inability to connect external loudspeakers prior to Euan's latest detailed presentation on the evolution of chip architecture culminating in Apple's M1 designs. Help was provided to one of those attending who was hoping to be able in due course to transfer significant data to a new iPad from an ancient tablet but no longer had the associated Apple ID. A second part of Barry's Favourite Things was also shown. Time… Read more…

Eleven members came to the Victory Hall to hear Stuart's talk on how Apple found a new operating system for the Mac, and saved itself from collapse- not just because that new OS came complete with Steve Jobs. Back in 1984, the Mac was designed & heavily optimised for a single user to run a single application, which could do a single task at once. But given the pace of hardware and software development, those… Read more…

David M ran through several of the new features in the latest release of IOS & iPadOS 15.0. Whilst superficially there seems little change, once you start to look in detail this really is a major upgrade but some features depend on having more modern devices with a minimum of the Apple A12 Bionic Chip. David showed various features including Live Text,Tags in Notes, Tab Groups, Shared with You and the improved FaceTime… Read more…

The meeting was once again held upstairs in The Pheasant Inn's Shoemakers Hall. After a small group sampled the extensive evening menu downstairs, nine members and two guests enjoyed a detailed illustrated talk by David Moon on the Apple Watch; time-keeping is clearly the least exciting function of this extra-ordinary device which can now measure a number of medically-relevant functions, act in many ways as a small readily accessible iPhone and, as… Read more…

11 members and 1 visitor turned out on a wet Autumn evening, lured by the prospect of All Fired Up’s excellent coffee and cake - and maybe also by the prospect of Euan explaining why Apple’s M series of chips represent a significant technological advance.

Euan’s presentation covered the various processes involved in chip manufacture, from spark erosion, chemical etching through to the use of extreme ultraviolet light… Read more…

Euan explained the technical wonders and evolution of Apple’s new Apple Silicon chips, starting with the M1, which are replacing Intel processors across the Mac range and is also used in the iPad Pro. He discussed some very technical details but the talk was aimed at a more general audience and he successfully held our interest and attention. We all felt informed rather than bewildered!

After visiting the development of integrated… Read more…
