Apple User Group Bulletin - June 17, 2019

June's Featured Vendor: Matias

Matias has quite a following in the Mac User Group community because of their reputation for high quality products and for rescuing lost or abandoned technologies. For example, they make some of the best wired keyboards available today, as well as a product line of wireless keyboards, and their iRizer and iFold portable ergonomic laptop stands. They are also known for their Dvorak Pro keyboard, Half Keyboard for one handed typing, and Half-qwerty Keyboards. While they have been producing award-winning products for 30 years, they still offer the same level of truly personal and truly excellent customer service. Best of all, they are offering a generous user group discount for Apple User Group officers and members in this month's Bulletin and Blog.

Meeting Ideas: iMovie for iOS and iMovie for Mac, iOS 13, iPad OS, WatchOS 6

WWDC was amazing this year, with so many exciting announcements. Needless to say, your group will want to learn about the changes that are coming and the features that will help them get more from their Apple devices. The good news is that ASW has your back with specification sheets and presentations that provide the information you need. Why not use iMovie for iOS and iMovie for Mac – First Look (L544682A-en_US), watchOS 6 Preview – First Look (L585042A-en_US), iOS 13 Preview – First Look (L585037A-en_US), or iPadOS Preview – First Look (L585034A-en_US) for your group’s next meeting topic? You will be glad you did!

Have you ever wondered why some photos catch the eye while others are pedestrian and boring? If so, your group might enjoy two new photo series from Today at Apple. Photo Lab: Disrupting the Portrait, Co-created with Christopher Anderson offers a look at ways to rethink the subject, obstruct the lens, and stylize your shots, all based on ideas from award-winning photographer Christopher Anderson. And, with Photo Lab for Kids: Fun Family Portraits your members can learn how to use iPad and iPhone to capture action, understand how background and lighting can make for a great shot, add fun text and art to a picture, and more.

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

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