At our June meeting, longtime member Tim Baker will present OpenCore Legacy Patcher. With this software you can upgrade most any Intel Macintosh dated from 2008 to 2017 to a much later macOS than Apple currently allows through Software Update. Generally Apple will only allow you to upgrade your macOS to the latest OS version if it falls within their 7 year limitation. He will explain what Open Core is, how to get the Patcher software and then demonstrate how simple it is to upgrade your dusty old Mac to possibly the most current version of macOS Sonoma!

Sound exciting?  Come join us Saturday, June 8 at 10:00 am at the Carrollton Josey Ranch Lake library branch (1700 Keller Springs Rd, Carrollton) in the Environmental Classroom at the back of the library to the left.  We will have Zoom available for joining virtually if you can’t make it in person.  We will start with Lawrence's AI SIG at 10, followed by the Main Meeting at 11, and wrap up with Jonesy’s Mac Help Desk SIG from noon to 1pm.

Once A Month Meetings

Our Apple User Group meets once a month, usually the second Saturday. We usually have new topics to talk about each month, guest speakers and presenters, and other helpful insights.

A Note From the President

At The Apple Corps of Dallas we are always learning, teaching and sharing! Bring your questions and share them with the group. There are no wrong questions. Feel free to share your digital problems. Someone in the group usually has the answer. If we are not able to answer the questions during this session, unanswered questions carry over to future meetings.

Some of our past diverse topics have covered Health & the Apple Watch, creating a “Hackintosh”, Video Editing and Sharing, Photo Techniques, iCloud, FileMaker Pro, Creating Exciting Keynote Presentations, and Drones.

About Us

The Apple Corps of Dallas

Helping Others Since 1978

The Apple Corps of Dallas (ACD) is the oldest Apple Computer User Group still in operation, established in January of 1978.

Our members are primarily from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area. Our aim is to provide you with the latest information on your Apple device, to offer help in solving problems, to present forums for discussion, and to provide insight on the ever expanding world of technology.

Don’t have a Mac? No problem! We also assist users who have iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. In fact, owning an Apple product is not even necessary to be a member.
