National Capital Apple Mac Users Group – Meeting via Zoom:As it is still (sort of) springtime, we’ll look at topics related to basic ‘spring cleaning’ of Macs, iPhones and iPads.Time to find (and perhaps, remove) no-longer-needed files, the duplicate files, and ‘cruft’ — the unwanted detritus lingering on that Mac drive. And we’ll discuss removing unused iPhone and iPad apps without losing needed associated files.
Next up, discussion will consider Apple’s AirDrop.This is a truly easy and useful application for sharing files with others and moving files, photos, etc. between or among your Apple devices. Once you start using AirDrop you’ll probably think of all of the times you wished you’d used it!
Followed by discussion on a somewhat related technology: Apple’s Handoff. For those who would like to — or need to — begin working on a file on one Apple device and pick-up the process on another device, Handoff provides a great native solution. Started that long document or e-mail on your iPhone while away from your Mac, and then realized you’d rather work on it with a full keyboard? No problem, Handoff is there to help make it happen.
There will be lots of news to share, including news about iOS and Mac OS updates; the new iPhone SE; the new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro, with cursor support; the new 13-inch MacBook Pro; and a new online Apple Store hub;
