Sonoma, the newest operating for the Mac, was released September 26, 2023.

After testing, LHAUG's technical support team have concluded that macOS Sonoma is safe to install on computers with the Apple Silicon processors M1, M2, and M3.  

If you have an older mac, the team suggests you update to the most current macOS that is available for your machine.  As always, make sure you have a current Time Machine backup before you update/upgrade.  CLICK HERE for the latest updates.

CLICK HERE to read the Cider Press.  The newest addition to the website!  It's fun, informative, and colorful.  It has the latest Tips and Tricks as well as a lot of links for further information.

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the availability of our volunteers, in-home support will be limited.  The Help Line continues to be available; however, support for issues that require a home visit, such as setting up new devices and printers, will be limited. Open Labs (held at Orchard Creek) will continue to be available. See the website calendar for Open Lab dates.


Have you gotten a new Apple product recently?  See below in "Other Things of Interest" for ways to donate your old devices to those in need.

Other Things of Interest

Woz in 2004

Did you know that in 2004, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak came to Lincoln Hills to speak to our user group? The club opened the presentation to all SCLH residents, and there were about 500 in attendance in the ballroom. The event was arranged by Ken Silverman, who knew Woz through his role as one of the founders of the first Apple user group, the San Francisco Apple Core. For a video of Woz's talk, which is about an hour and 20 minutes, CLICK HERE.
