Basic Mac / iOS

The Ins and Outs of Syncing your Mac, iPhone and iPad

Many people have more than one Apple device—or a Mac and a PC—and want to be able to access many or all of the same files on each computer or your iPhone or iPad. iCloud and Dropbox both offer ways to sync an set of files and folders across your devices, but they approach it differently. You may just only wish to sync your Mac to your iPhone, but did you know you probably have an iCloud account on the web where you can access your photos or some of your documents even from another computer, such as a PC. How does the iCloud Drive Folder on your Mac work with the Files app on your iPhone or iPad?

Join us from 6:30 to 7 PM at the Port Townsend Community Center on Thursday, September 12th for Bob Snow's 30-minute introductory presentation on syncing Apple devices.

Afternoon Class

Tips and Tricks for Mac

This month’s afternoon workshop will discuss ways you can better use your Mac. (Sorry iPhone and iPad users, we will only be discussing Mac apps and the OS X operating system.) Although you may use your Mac everyday, you may not realize how powerful and feature-packed it really is. Your Mac has many things up its sleeve that you probably don't know about. Hopefully these tips and tricks will help save you some time, help you organize things, deal with your photos, and show you how you can search for and find the things you have filed.

In PTSLUG’s September workshop Gary Estes and Bob Snow will present Tips and Tricks for Mac. Note: This workshop is for not for iPhone and iPad users.

The free workshop will be on Friday, September 27th, from 2 to 4 PM at the Kala Point clubhouse. PTSLUG members with their dues current will have priority on signing up, but the event is open to all community members.

Please do not try to sign up based on this announcement.  Please wait for our email announcement, which will be sent to you later this month and will have the signup instructions and email address to respond to.
