Washington Apple Pi

A Community of Apple iPad, iPhone and Mac Users

September 22, 2018 General Meeting: Apple Update, Fall 2018

Washington Apple Pi will explore Apple's advances in educational technology, plus a whole host of new hardware and software (some of it possibly revealed on September 12), at the General Meeting in Maryland. The location of the General Meeting is a closely guarded secret, but it is in Bethesda and, based on a secret photo smuggled out in an encrypted iPhone, it looks like a classroom. Stay tuned.
