Welcome to Apple-Q!

Since 1979, Apple-Q has been helping people to learn about their computers, originally with the revolutionary Apple ][ series, then the Mac and now, with the phenomenal popularity of their iOS devices: the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; as well as Apple TV and online streaming services. We’re seeking new ways to assist as we move into the era of wearable tech with the Apple Watch and more to come…

We offer a range of services to club members to help you to get the most from the Mac and iOS including demonstrations on a range of topics plus one-on-one assistance, training on apps as chosen by members, a monthly magazine, monthly software updates and inexpensive devices to enhance your Apple experience. Meetings and training days are held in the Art/Music Building at MacGregor High School. Monthly meetings are usually held on the third Sunday of each month. Free training days for members are normally one week after club meetings. No meetings are held in December.

Covid19 Pandemic – Meetings currently being held on-line:

Due to the ongoing problems with the pandemic and the Queensland Government not allowing us to meet at our normal venue we are currently holding our meetings on-line via our Apple-Q Meetings Server.

These are currently being held on the 3rd and 4th Sunday’s of the month between 2:00 and 4:00 pm (assembling at 1:45 pm).

If anyone knows of an alternative meeting site (preferably near our previous site at MacGregor & close to M1/M3) please contact the President.

Monthly Meeting Days (currently held on-line)

Each month, in addition to the usual lucky door prizes, raffles, sales table, Marcie‘s mince rolls and more, we also have regular sessions:

  • Major Presentation (current interest topic);
  • Regular sessions on iOS (iPad, iPhone,…);
  • QuickBits and Quick Bytes Sessions (mini sessions);
  • Q & A Session;
  • Apple Information / Tech Updates;
  • … and much more.

Everyone is welcome – come along and join us for the day. If you’re not yet a member, you’re invited to attend one monthly meeting to check us out before joining. For more information about becoming a member, visit our Join page or talk to us at the meeting.

Please arrive by around 10:45am so the first session can start at 11am. You will either need to bring your own packed lunch and cold drinks if you plan to stay for the whole meeting (finishes around 3pm) or purchase one of our delicious mince rolls for $4. Hot drinks for $1 and a microwave are also available. Check out our Meetings

Monthly Training Days (Currently held on-line)

Free training days for members are usually held on the fourth Sunday of each month. The morning session starts at 11am before breaking for lunch. The afternoon session runs until 3:30pm. Lunch is BYO but a microwave is available.

You must Register for free training (via a contract form at the bottom of the linked page) as low attendance has occasionally resulted in training days being cancelled. If a training day is cancelled (for any reason), registered attendees will be notified as soon as possible, as we don’t want you turning up to find nobody on site.
