China Apple Stores host first Today at Apple sessions since reopening

Today at Apple includes sessions on how to use the Procreate art app

A selection of Apple Stores in mainland China have resumed in-store Today at Apple education sessions on a limited basis.

Nine Apple Stores in China have now completed their first Today at Apple sessions following the coronavirus outbreak. Each appear to be running the same program, consisting of three hours of sessions between 10:00 and 13:00 local time.

Today at Apple sessions must be booked in advance and the stores are currently taking bookings through August 14. The sessions range from "Art Skills: Getting Started with Procreate," through "Product Tips: iPhone and iPad," and "Lighting and Shadow Lab: Directing and Shooting Portraits."

At time of writing, most sessions appear fully booked for the next few days, but it isn't clear how many places Apple is accepting. It will be fewer than normal, however, as Apple is reportedly spacing out seating more widely to enable social distancing.

The complete list of stores resuming Today at Apple was first spotted by 9to5mac.

China's Apple Stores were, unsurprisingly, the first to be closed over COVID-19 concerns. In February, Apple closed down all 42 stores plus its local offices, but the country's stores have since been among the first to reopen, too.
