One of the advantages of living near an Apple store is the ability to take part in free workshops that are offered on a daily basis. Currently Apple is offering free workshops on iPads, iPhones, Macs, iCloud, iTunes, Using your Apple Devices Together, iPhone Photography, and using Apple in Your Business. All the Workshops last an hour and are free with registration. To check on availability of workshops in your area, visit the learn section of Apple.com.
In Delaware, our only Apple Store is the Christiana Mall location. To view a list of all workshops being offered at the Christiana Apple Store, visit http://www.apple.com/retail/christianamall/. At the top of the page, there is a link to register for a Workshop, or you can scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a list of all Workshops and events currently scheduled. To register for a free event, you do have to have an Apple ID. This is the username and password you use with iCloud. If you do not have an account, you can create a free account during registration.
If you are new to an iPhone, iPad or Mac, or feel that you are not getting the most out of your device, I would encourage to explore the free help that is offered directly from Apple.

This is a friendly group, and if you have not yet attended one of our free meetings, please stop in. No pre-registration is required.
