We had nominal attendance at the January 13th meeting with Lloyd King and myself in attendance. We discussed Lloyd’s recent episode of slowness with his iMac and reloading the OS at the Apple Store in University Village and transfer of data from his backup. Use of a “COO” (from Amazon) bluetooth keyboard for iPad’s was reviewed and features demonstrated. After two weeks of use the bluetooth keyboard works as stated and is quite sturdy.
At our January 13 meeting we will be reviewing third party usb keyboards suitable for use with an iPad as-well-as some on going High Sierra foibles.
