    I am new to the forum but not to iOS, I am using iPhone 5 and iPad 2, hope to upgrade to iPad Air 128 soon or its next iteration. I also have iMac 27", MacBook 17", and MacBook Air and iPad 1. I switched from PC after 30 years. I am a retired Instructor of Mechanics with interest in computing, microcontrollers, robotics, 3D printing, UAV's, UGV's and carpentry etc.

    Hi & welcome to the forum! :) We are recent 'Apple Switchers' (spring a year ago to a MBPro & iMac, although before that time I had an iPod & iPad 2 - wife a Mini) - hope that you enjoy your time here.

    We vacationed in Alberta (summer) years ago - Jasper, Banff, & Calgary - had a great time! Dave
