At 7:00 p.m., we will look at Apple’s recent announcements at WWDC 2016 (World Wide Developer Conference). Apple announced updates to their 4 lines of operating systems. iOS 10 has a focus of improving Siri. macOS Sierra brings Siri to Apple’s desktops and laptops with many other improvements. watchOS 3 improves app launch times. tvOS 10 will bring a single sign-on for cable services and a dark mode. Of course that just brushes the top of all that was announced. We will talk about the rest, when you will be able to get it, and on what machines.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The next Mini’app’les meeting is Tuesday, May 17th, the third Tuesday of the month, at the Hackfactory (3119 E. 26th Street Minneapolis, MN 55406). At 6:30 p.m., members of the board and other knowledgable people will be available if you have specific questions you would like answered. We will do our best to address your question and help you troubleshoot the issue.

At 7:00 p.m., we will cover some current news and then we will look at storage options for your Mac and iOS devices. As we take more pictures or expand our music library or save more files, we need to store them somewhere. And eventually, the space we currently have will not be enough. So we will consider the pros and cons of different expansion options, for both primary storage and backups. Factors such as storage space available, physical size and portability, type of connections, and even the type of storage will help determine the best choice for you.

Come and share the storage options you have chosen and see how you might improve your setup. We look forward to seeing you there.
