Advanced Apple iPad / iPhone Interest Group
For U3A members who consider they have good knowledge and skills in using the Apple iPad / iPhone who want to participate in a course
based on online participation, interaction and learning. A monthly newsletter will keep participants up to date about the Apple iPad
and iPhone, and evaluate some of the latest Apps. Members’ iPad/ iPhone problems will be resolved and active participation in sending
in problems and solutions for discussion, encouraged. There will be advanced tutorials on topics suggested by members; eg there may be an evaluation of various storage options and/or battery re-chargers, or backing up/updating and/or restoring your iPhone/iPad to a Mac
or PC computer using iTunes. Participants will largely determine the direction that the Interest Group takes. To join, simply email me.
The initiative will be trialled for the first two terms.
