Apple User Group Bulletin - May 16, 2019

May's Featured Vendor: PioData, Makers of iXflash Drives

You may not be aware of PioData or their parent company, Vinpower Digital, but you have probably used their products many times over the years. They were originally known for their automatic OEM CD, hard drive, optical drive, and DVD duplicating machines, as well as standalone drives.

In 2015, Vinpower created a line of compact and intuitive Apple MFI certified Lightning and USB 3 back-up and storage flash devices specifically designed for Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods, allowing users to back-up their photos and videos, and expand the storage capacity of their Apple devices. Best of all, the iXflash drives also act as traveling media libraries where users can watch movie and video content, listen to music and audio files, review documents in many popular formats, and more. Be sure to check out the PioData iXflash offer in this month's Apple User Group Bulletin and in the Member's Special Offers section of the AppleUserGroupResources.com blog.

Meeting Idea: Apple Families

While parents love the ways that Apple products promote learning, exploring, and fun, parents also want to be sure that their children are using iPads, iPhones, Apple TV, and related technologies in ways that are safe, healthy, and appropriate. Are your members aware of Apple’s Families page and how it can help parents?

The site provides tips and tools to keep track of family app usage, limit or block applications and notifications at bedtime, choose which apps are available for their children, provide for internet safety and kid-friendly content, manage in-app purchases, know where their children are 24×7, find lost devices, share apps and music with the entire family, create group chats to stay in touch, reduce distractions, provide for emergency SOS and ensure medical information is there when needed, help emergency professionals locate family members, protect privacy, and so much more.

Why not make Apple Families your next meeting topic?


As always, if you have an idea for a resource, let us know.
