Our eighth Apple World User Group University online gathering of Apple user group leaders was held at 8:00pm CST, on October 19, 2020, via Zoom. We had 17 participants who joined for the topic of “iOS 14 & iPadOS 14 Changes” . The 93-minute video can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/ZRC0NENsNh0 (unlisted on YouTube).
This session opened with a welcome, plus my description of comparison of changes between iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. I also introduced Doug Smith, Chair of the Apple User Group Advisory Board, who monitored the Chat Room and Zoom support.
Our evening presenter provided a detailed presentation by Tony Crawford of The Villages Apple User Group (tvaug.org) about iOS 14 as taken from Apple’s webpage, (apple.com/ios/ios-14). This was followed by Mike Kwasniak of the Suffolk Mac User Group (www.suffolkmug.co.uk) about their transition to groups.io. This was followed by a presentation by George Rubin and Eckart Goette of Naples Mac User Group (naplesmug.com) about the potential for an NMUG associate or full membership for other user groups and members.
A number of questions, answers and discussion followed with these links provided as followup:
from Ann MacKay: link their leaders used for 14 iOS 14 features:
from Rick Matteson: Logitech has a stylus called “Crayon”
which is compatible with all iPads 2018 and later ($69.99):
An extensive discussion was held about suggestions for future meeting topics such as moving to every-other-month meetings, membership records and renewals, sharing presenters & presentations, joint user group meetings, and pro apps for Zoom. The new AWUGU iCloud resource area to share past meeting information is available (https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0kF7XwYI98VG0fqvL86PJm02g#AWUGU) hosted by the Apple User Group Advisory Board.
We are very pleased that this eighth meeting was very informative. Our next tentative meeting is scheduled for 8:00pm CDT, November 16, 2020, about “Membership Records and Renewals”, and no meeting in December. All AWUGU previous registrants will receive an invitation to all meetings.
To become a participant, any interested AUG leader must first register with the AWUGU Coordinator by emailing their name, location, and user group name and web link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration must be received by November 14 in order to receive a Zoom Meeting invitation (a download of the free Zoom app in advance is also necessary).
