Press Release 10/24/18

(Kent, Connecticut) – The Kent Memorial Library is pleased to announce an Apple products workshop: “Top 5 Tips for Apple Products” on Saturday, November 10 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Reading Room. Not only will this be a workshop of Top 5 Tips for your iPhone/iPad, but will include a bonus Top 5 for your Mac!

After helping numerous local residents and patrons of area libraries, Tech Tutor Michael Jay has compiled some of the questions he receives most often – and the valuable tips and shortcuts he feels all Apple users should know.

The workshop will discuss how to:

  • check for scam “phishing” emails
  • get more from your device’s daily battery life
  • increase your device’s security
  • update your system – and why that’s worth doing
  • get the most from iCloud and your Apple ID

 

And for those Mac users, we’ll cover how to:

  • organize your files, and “navigate” to them with the Mac’s Finder
  • backup your Mac with its built-in Time Machine app
  • scan your documents more easily
  • and, why you don’t need to quit apps as often as you might think,

and why closing your windows is not the same as Quitting…

 

Because this workshop will focus on a relatively small number of topics, the event will be split equally between the lecture, and lots of time for your questions.

If you already have an iPhone, iPad or Mac laptop, bring it to this meeting. Although we won’t have time to conduct step-by-step lessons for everyone, it will be helpful for you to follow along, or to make the occasional change to your device.

Whether you’re a bit of a beginner or an experienced user, we hope to help you learn some new tricks – and learn to empower yourself with your personal tech!
