On October 23, 2001, Apple introduced the iPod, forever changing the way we purchase and transport music. Since its humble inception, the iPod has transformed into a variety of Apple portable devices, such as the iPad, the iPhone, and a multitude of iPods in different shapes, sizes, and colors. The ever-expanding features and apps can be overwhelming, but we are here to help! Join us for a hands-on workshop about some of the cool stuff you can do with your Apple portable device. We’ll cover topics like: What is the iCloud and why would I use it? What free apps can I get that will help streamline my everyday life? And…FaceTime, huh?! Be sure to bring your iPod, iPad, or iPhone! All attendees need to register.
