Christmas Meeting

Friday 11th December was our last online meeting of the year. We had an Apple-related quiz, discussed Apple’s announcement of AirPods Max and members shared suggestions and tips.

App Development Update

DaveK gave us his regular update on the app he’s developing. The Zenopolis website has information about Dave’s current apps.

Apple Quiz

Robert presented the Apple-related quiz which has become a fixture at our pre-Christmas meetings. This year there were three rounds:

  • Questions about new features in iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur.
  • Recent Apple history.
  • Guessing prices for promotional items in the 1986 The Apple Collection catalogue.

Congratulations to DavidB for winning the quiz!
