MAC Novice Class Presentation at 6:30 pm:

The Novice Class meeting this month will be on updating your operating system and associated programs. Many associated programs may also need to be updated after upgrading the OS, but do you really need to do all that Apple tells you on the Update page of the App Store?

Maybe not, so let’s look at what is offered/suggested by Apple and consider whether you need to update everything. It’s an easy step that is often overlooked because it isn’t obvious.
