Apple User Group Bulletin - August 15, 2019

August Featured Vendor: Eve’s Apple HomeKit-Enabled Ecosystem

While you may not recognize the logo, the company now named Eve was a long-time and much-loved supporter of User Group University and other community events under the name Elgato. Eve’s product line, designed exclusively for the Apple HomeKit-enabled household, are simple to set up, easy to control from anywhere, and provide all the convenience that automation can supply. Better yet, even when accessing your home remotely via your home hub, Eve ensures that all data is end-to-end encrypted and stored on your iPhone or iPad. So, your privacy is protected.

Best of all, this month’s Apple User Group Resources blog has an 50% amazing discount for Apple employees and Apple User Group members.

Meeting Ideas: Apple's Families Page and New MacBooks

While parents love the ways that Apple’s iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV promote learning, exploring, and fun, parents also want to be sure that their children are using Apple products 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 make sure that their children are using technology in the ways that parents want? Read this month's blog for the details and a possible meeting idea. You will be glad you did.

Your members may be wondering about the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops. If so, ASW has a great set of presentations that could make for a good meeting topic. MacBook Pro – Then and Now (L578071A-en_US) and MacBook Air – Then and Now *L581386A-en_US) can provide a great start. Then, MacBook Pro – First Look (L578070A-en_US) and MacBook Air – First Look (L581388A-en_US) provide the full specs for the newest in the MacBook line.

Ambassadors: August is a great month to use Apple Resources.
