Apple returning ‘Today at Apple’ sessions at Apple Stores in China
Apple is bringing back its in-store creative sessions in mainland China after they were suspended at the beginning of the year due to COVID-19.
Starting today, Today at Apple labs will resume in nine Apple Stores across the country, with a maximum of three sessions per day scheduled for each location, according to 9to5Mac.
The stores bringing back Today at Apple sessions are, Apple Zhujiang New Town, Apple MixC Nanning, Apple Nanjing Jinmao Place, Apple Suzhou, Apple Tianyi Square, Apple Kunming, Apple Parc 66 Jinan, Apple Shanghai iapm and Apple MixC Chengdu, all of which have Apple’s latest store design with a video wall, where sessions will take place.
Apple has removed sessions that require headphones, as well as those usually including community-based Walks from the schedule, instead adding new photography and art sessions that abide by social distancing and hygiene rules.
To replace the in-store sessions which continue to be put on hold elsewhere around the world, Apple launched a new “Today at Apple (at Home)” initiative in April, featuring videos from Creative Pros, which offer the usual Apple Store labs in a new, digital format.
