This month we are joined by Philip Michaels, Managing Editor at Tom’s Guide, for a presentation on iOS17 which was just released on September 18.  It’s a huge update with many new features and Philip will unpack it for us.

Our meetings will start with the AI SIG at 10am, followed by the main presentation at 11, and Jonesy will wrap up with his ongoing Mac Help Desk SIG from noon to 1pm.

Please join us Saturday, October 14 at 10:00 am at the Carrollton Josey Ranch Lake library branch (1700 Keller Springs Rd, Carrollton).  For the second month in a row we will be in the “Environmental Classroom” at the back of the library on the left for the entire time.  I think we can fit our normal attendance in there so feel free to come out in person this time.  We will still have RingCentral available for joining virtually, and the main presentation will also be virtual (click on “Join the Meeting” below).

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.
