Tim Cook, Apple CEO, recently shared the company commitment to educating our youth. Apple has supported teachers and our youth for over 40 years. I don’t know about you, but I was out of school before Apple implemented those programs. No wonder I struggle with some concepts.

The good news is we can learn from Mike Canterbury. In our April meeting, Mike concluded a well-received, in-depth review of “settings.” For our May meeting, Mike will continue with a variety of practical tactics to improve security and efficient use and enjoyment of all Apple devices.

The May meeting will be held in the Phoenix Room in Cottonwood on May 14, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. The topic will be Security on-line and some hidden tips and tricks. Keynote: Mike Canterbury

If you plan to attend the May meeting, please email Gary Bross at [email protected] to assure we have the room arranged properly.
