Apple User Group

Apple CIDER Macintosh User Group

The Apple Computer Information and Data Exchange of Rochester, is one of the oldest and largest Apple User Group. Our main purpose is educational; we demonstrate, inform, and instruct in the use of Apple computing technology. Since 1978, Apple CIDER has had a dedicated staff of volunteers who maintain the organization and help run meetings. Whether you’ve been using a Mac for years or just bought your first MacBook or iPhone, or iPad just last week, come and expand the horizons of your Apple world. Meetings are held September to June on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, at East High School, 1801 East Main Street, between Culver and Ohio Streets. Q&A meetings are held the 3rd Saturday of the month.  Special meetings are held at different locations during the summer.  Click here to subscribe to our calendar.
