Are you thinking about upgrading to a new iPhone, iPad, or AppleWatch?

Do you have any old Apple products just sitting forgotten somewhere? Please consider offering them to others who may have older devices and who do not want or need the brand new devices on sale now. We are also looking at donating old devices to those in the community less fortunate than us.The TAUG support techs will handle all the details - take your old equipment, completely erase all the data and info and pass them along to others who need them.  Details coming soon.

Apple, Banks, Law Enforcement, the IRS, etc., will NEVER EMAIL OR CALL you and ask for money OR ask you to send Gift Cards. THESE ARE SCAMS.  HANG UP/DON'T RESPOND TO AN EMAIL!  Click Here for a list of current scams.
