10/13/2017 - Apple iPhone and iPad Tips and Tricks Presentation on November 9, 2017

In this presentation on Thursday, November 9, 2017 from 6:30-8pm in the Kingsley Room of the Southbury Public Library, Michael Jay will discuss tips and tricks for the iPhone and iPad. In this easy, non-technical lecture, former Apple Store specialist Jay will reveal many commonly missed features, give the best tips so attendees can get the most out of their devices, and show solutions to the most common mistakes made by newer users.

This presentation is aimed at both those who are new to Apple products and those who are already comfortable with their iPhone and/or iPad. This lecture will cover many topics including troubleshooting, Apple IDs, iCloud, device and data syncing and backup, the settings menu, and the App Store. Jay will also address Siri and why she should be the best friend of any Apple user, the best strategies for getting the most out of battery life, how and why to adjust privacy settings, travel tips to avoid charges for inadvertent data usage abroad, and Wi-Fi calling. Attendees are invited to learn some new tricks, find out where they may be going wrong, and learn to empower themselves, so they’ll be able to broaden their use of these incredible devices and solve issues on their own.

Attendees who already have an iPhone or iPad are welcome to bring their devices to this meeting to follow along and make any desired changes. Although there won’t be a one-on-one help session, there will be 30 minutes of question and answer after the presentation to address the most common questions.

Instructor Michael Jay is a technology consultant and personal computer tutor who has partnered with Apple on several projects and worked with their products for over 30 years. He has taught at NYU graduate school, lectured at Bennington College and SUNY, and is currently an adjunct professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology. He resides in Kent, CT.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library.
