May 2021: Tag you’re it! [NEW DATE]

[UPDATE: We have had to change the date of this meeting to Tuesday 25 May – apologies for the inconvience]

Hello all, 

The sun’s been shining, we are making good progress towards returning to normal, and May’s examug is just around the corner – lots of reasons to feel good! On our usual second Tuesday (11th) we have our May meeting. It will still be over Zoom, but may be the final one like it.  

There has been lots going on since our last meeting: Apple have hosted their first event of 2021 and it was packed full.  We will go over all the news (and there is quite a lot of it), before taking a deep dive into Airtags and looking at the changes in iOS 14.5 which, as I write, should be out next week. 

We will have all the ‘usual’ zoom delights: news; Q/A; etc and our main presentation… 

Tag you’re it! We are going to discuss Apple’s new Airtags. Why they exist; how they work; what are the privacy issues; and are they worth it. We will have one to demo (which might be tricky over Zoom, but we will give it a go!) and we will have read up on all the details and so will be ready to answer your questions about this latest addition to Apple’s hardware lineup. 

Our second mini presenation is on iOS 14.5. We will cover what’s new and why this particular update has Facebook in such a spin! 

It will be a great meeting, so join us on Zoom at 7.00 pm Tuesday 25 May and hear all about it (details below).  [NEW DATE!]

Oh and one more (small) thing. It’s increadible to say, but Monday 26 March marks examug’s 15th birthday! We have come a long way since our first meeting back in 2006. Just after I wrote this…  

We’ve just had our first meeting and I can’t wait to tell all! It was simply, insanely great! We had over 20 people, with varying mac experience, but all keen to get involved. The cakes were great, the talk on OS X was great and just getting people together to talk Apple was great! We shared ideas, experiences and most importantly had fun. I can’t wait until our next meeting.  

Some things haven’t changed much in those 15 years!
