Visit to Mohave & iOS 12 on SMUG’s October 9, 2018 Agenda


Apple’s two new operating systems, macOS Mojave and iOS 12, will be explored at the Tuesday, October 9 meeting of the Sierra Macintosh Users Group (SMUG) that will begin at 7 p.m. in the assembly room of the Ebbetts Pass Fire District, 1037 Blagen Rd., Arnold, just off Highway 4.

Paul Keeton will lead the exploration.

macOS Mojave is the fifteenth major release of macOSApple’s desktop operating system for Macintosh computers. The successor to macOS High Sierra, it was announced on June 4 and was released to the public on September 24.  It brings several iOS apps to the desktop, including Apple News, Voice Memos, and Home.  It includes a much more comprehensive “Dark Mode”, and is the final version of macOS to support 32-bit apps.

iOS (formerly iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system created and developed by Apple Inc. exclusively for its hardware. It is the operating system that presently powers many of the company’s mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.  iOS 12 was launched on September 17.

As is always the case at SMUG meetings, questions about any Apple product or application will be welcomed and encouraged.

SMUG meetings are designed for dues paying members but anyone is welcome to attend to see if they would like to join the group.  SMUG was founded in 1995 and is a non-profit organization run completely by volunteers. It meets the second Tuesday of the month, January through November.  Annual dues are $20 for an individual or couple payable at the first of the year.  Members joining now will pay $10 to carry them through the rest of the year.

The organization exists to keep Apple users abreast of the latest developments and to address the nagging questions that arise from time to time.  Its goal is to take the mystery out of computers and to enable members to take advantage of all the features their Mac products possess.
