We recently told you all about the ‘Today at Apple’ sessions for India that Apple was all set to launch. The schedule for the upcoming sessions have been made live today and you can head over to the webpage to register. 

Today at Apple sessions cover a range of topics including photography, videos, music, art design etc and while they are usually held in Apple’s physical stores, they have been moved online this year thanks to the ongoing pandemic. 

These sessions are helmed by creative pros, artists, photographers musicians etc and people attending these sessions have a chance to learn both basics and how-to lessons and professional-level programs. The whole idea is to make customers use their Apple products better.

Launched in 2017, Today at Apple's digital version was announced in March this year under Today at Apple @ Home sessions with how-to videos from the pros. Apple has covered seasonal sessions like Apple Camp, Made In LDN and International Day of the Girl under this initiative already and has also collaborated with the likes of Billie Eilish, South Korean boy band NCT, Khalid, Alicia Keys, architecture firm Foster & Partners, photographer Christopher Anderson, Taylor Swift and others.

The dates for the India sessions are available here, and you can just click and register for any of these. The first session, Photo Lab: Faces and Places with Siddhartha Joshi, is scheduled for October 22 at 7 PM (IST). 

Besides, Joshi, other local photographers with whom customers can look forward to sessions include Avani Rai, Anurag Banerjee, Prarthna Singh and Hashim Badani. And musicians onboard include Raja Kumari, Prateek Kuhad, DIVINE, Lisa Mishra and Aditi Ramesh.

There are also Apple-led sessions, like Music Skills: Getting Started with GarageBand, which will focus on showing the creative potential of Apple products and services and be lead by store team members who will educate customers with virtual hands-on sessions.
