Follow-Up from our January 2018 General Meeting


Our last meeting held on January 22nd 2018 was a great success.


We had incredible attendance (we might have a set another record).   But what was really great was the participation!

Everyone offered tips and suggestions and that is what a users’ group is all about.  Keep up the great work IMUG’ers.

I’d also like to send a special thanks to Steven Reardon.   During our Q&A session, Steven pointed out that iOS Devices were no longer appearing in iTunes.  I could not reproduce the issue on my build due to a developer version of Mac OS installed on my machine.  However, Steven did some digging and research and found that Apple has in fact changed the way you backup your iOS Device on your Mac.  Please note this only applies for backing up your iOS Device on a Mac.  This doesn’t apply to iCloud backups.  So please see the informative research Steven provided below.

“I found this article about iOS 12.7 and it says that feature no longer exists:

“The new version of iTunes adds support for iOS 11 while simultaneously removing the iOS App Store from being included in iTunes. Additionally, iTunes 12.7 removes the ability to sync iOS apps and ringtones on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch via iTunes on the desktop. Instead, Apple wants you to manage and download iOS apps from the iPhone or iPad itself via the native iOS App Store application.”


Once again, thanks Steven and all IMUG’ers for attending and your participation!
