The iPhone and iPad Group
Contact Group Leader Jean Spenceley
The group is now meeting in the Brunton Room at Stokesley Town Hall on the second Monday of the month from 1.30 - 3.30pm. However, we hope to use Zoom as well as meeting face to face. The plan is to have a meeting in the Town Hall but Zoom the presentation to those members who, for medical reasons, cannot attend in person.
New members are always welcome to join, no matter what level of competence you have reached in using the iPad/iPhone. Someone who has just acquired a device would be helped in acquiring the basic skills, while those who have owned one for years could still gain from being part of the group.
None of the members in our group consider themselves to be expert users of the iPad or iPhone; rather, we aim to support each other in developing our skills.
The first part of each session (just over half an hour) features a presentation on an App of particular interest; the second part is one-to-one help for people who may be experiencing problems, or who may wish to develop their competence in a specific skill when using the iPad/iPhone. In the true spirit of the u3a, members are always happy to give support.
This group was first formed in 2016, and since then has explored (and continues to explore) many of the facilities offered on iPhones and iPads, including:
Settings; Mail: sending and filing emails; Safari: searching for, and storing, information
Photos: taking, editing and sharing; Cloud storage: iCloud and iCloud Drive
The App Store; Passwords and PINs; iTunes, and restoring data; Siri; Facetime
Apps, chosen by group members, including: Contacts, Calendar, Keynote, Google Keep, Google Lens, What 3 Words, BBC Sounds and the North Yorkshire Library App.
