CHUG Offers Some Gift Ideas for Apple Users

The Apple Charlestown User Group (CHUG) will not meet in December, 2021. However, they have submitted a list of gift ideas for Apple users.

Apple Gift Ideas

If your children or grandchildren are struggling to figure out what you need for a holiday gift, circle an item on the list below. Suggest they pool the money for one big item rather than multiple small items. Consider last year’s model for iPhones or Apple watches.

• Apple Watch 4 or above with fall detection if you have an iPhone already
• Upgrade the iPhone with walking steadiness on the Health app
• AirPods if you are not wearing hearing aids
• M1 iMac 24-inch in 7 vibrant colors
• M1 MacBook Air
• M1 Mac mini to use with existing monitor and keyboard
• Air Tags to add to your keychain or put in your purse or on anything that you tend to misplace.
• iPad 9th Generation offers all-day battery life at a budget-friendly price.
• Apple Pencil (first-generation) for $94.88 to go with the new iPad 9th Generation
• iPad Air 4 has Touch ID, USB-C charging and supports the second-generation Apple Pencil.
• 2nd generation Apple pencil to go with a new iPad Air
• iPad mini 6 also supports the second-generation Apple Pencil.
• AirPods Max are Apple’s high-end over-the-ear headphones if you wear hearing aids.
• Accessories for any item.

CHUG October Meeting

Apple Charlestown User Group

Add October 21, 2021, to your calendar for the Apple CHUG meeting at 1:00 p.m. Depending on the status of the county COVID positivity rate, we may be using Zoom.

Marie Skane returns as the presenter offering the fundamentals to help you be more adept with your iPhone or iPad. Titled Tips & Tricks & Email Etiquette, she will help you learn to cut and paste, close applications, and follow the etiquette for using email reply all or blind copy.

Marie is an excellent teacher and plans lots of interaction and time for questions.

The CHUG program for November will cover the new iOS 15, which rolled September 20. Many Apple users prefer to wait a few weeks before updating, so a later date to review the features is planned.

Hope Tillman held her first Technology User Group (TUG) meeting in September. TUG compliments CHUG as she focuses on the beginner user.
