This new MacOS arrived on September 25th, and its new features are described in the articles below:

With the recent release of Apple's Screen Time for mobile devices, parents were given a suite of great new parental controls to help manage their children's use of these devices - for children up to the age of 18.
If you haven't yet discovered these new features, visit Settings -> Screen time on an iPhone or iPad and explore the great controls that can now be put in place. (We are running information sessions on these great new features - see below for details of the schools we are visiting, and of the sessions that will be run at iTandCoffee.)
While Google launched its equivalent last year - the Family Link App for Android - it seemed to me to fall well short of parent requirements, since it only applied for children under 13 years of age. You could not use it for older children

As of the end of September 2018, Apple has ceased its Photo Book printing service (as well as other printed products like Calendars, photo prints, etc.)
If you visit the Projects area of the Photos app and choose the 'create option' (the +), you will find that choosing Book simply gives you the option to visit the App Store.
For so many years, I have been almost evangelical about Evernote and what a difference it has made to my life. I no longer have a physical filing cabinet - Evernote IS my filing cabinet, and I can access the contents of that cabinet anywhere. It even reminds me about time-sensitive notes that that I have saved there.
I have been regularly making use of a really handy feature of iOS 12 - available on iPad and iPhone. It is a feature that was previously only available to those who had an iPhone 6s or newer, and wasn't previously available at all on the iPad.
Watch this short video to find out more.
Have you discovered Google Flights? If not - and if you are planning on travelling some time soon - go to www.google.com.au/flights to check it out.
Google Flights is a really handy website that enables you to search, compare and book flights. It’s like an online travel agency that saves you the step of searching each airline and website individually.

If you missed the big news from Apple on September 13th, here's a great short promo video that tells you about what was announced - all in 108 seconds.
In another of this week's blog articles, we welcomed our new team member, Heidi.
You will have noticed that the walls behind Heidi had nothing much on them (as shown in the first photo above). In fact the original version of this photo had a sign, a vacuum cleaner and a fire extinguisher behind Heidi (as shown in the second photo)!
These distractions were so easily removed using the Photos app on the Mac. (Sorry Heidi - I just noticed I gave you a bit of a hunched back!)
We are very excited to welcome a new member of the iTandCoffee Team - the gorgeous Heidi Mitchell, who you will see at the iTandCoffee Shop from Tues-Fri.
Help with Getting Started / Learning the Basics - now at a reduced cost at iTandCoffee
Heidi is available to assist anyone who needs 'basics' and 'getting started' assistance with their technology - in particular, iPad, iPhone and Mac. She can also assist with troubleshooting, and with updates/upgrades and answering a range of questions.
You can book a time to see Heidi, or just pop in to the iTandCoffee shop between 10am and 2:30pm Tuesday - Friday (although safest bet is to arrange a time before you come in, so you don't have to wait!). Our number is 09886 0814 and email address is email@example.com.
(If Heidi is not able to answer your question or fully resolve your issue, she will refer you to Lynette for assistance.)
The assistance offered by Heidi is our new Get Started/Learn the Basics type of appointment, which comes at a lower cost than the standard appointment at iTandCoffee. See our Prices page for further details.
We hope that you will take advantage of this new service from iTandCoffee - and Heidi looks forward to meeting you!
