Basic Mac / iOS

iOS and iPad OS 13

Apple has now released new operating system upgrades for the iPhone and iPad. They now have separate operating systems: iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1. Apple says “iOS 13 introduces a bold new look, major updates to the apps you use every day, new ways to help you protect your privacy, and improvements across the entire system that make your iPhone even faster and more delightful to use.” 9to5mac says “iPadOS 13 is a huge release that gives the iPad more room to grow and evolve into the platform that it’s capable of becoming.” In this month’s 30-minute Apple Basics presentation Bob Snow will cover some of the major changes in the new operating systems and which devices can and cannot be upgraded.

Join us at the Chimacum Tri-Area Community Center on Thursday, October 10th from 6:30 to 7.

Afternoon Class

An Introduction to Numbers

This month’s afternoon workshop will be an introduction to Numbers, the Macintosh spreadsheet application. Although Numbers is also available on the iPhone and iPad, and there are many similarities, the class will focus on the Mac version of the application. The class will provide a demonstration of many of the most common uses for Numbers by showing how to set up a household financial flowsheet which tracks expenses (utilities, groceries, etc.) and income. As an example, you will learn how to track and chart your electric bill and calculate your average monthly bill. This will then link over to a summary table which will show your average monthly costs. Along the way you will become familiar with common spreadsheet terms: workbooks, worksheets, tables, cells, columns and rows. Learn to have fun with Numbers!

The free workshop will be on Friday, October 25th, 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 wait for our email announcement, which will be sent to you later this month and will have the signup instructions and email address to which to respond.
