Today at Apple

A while back, Apple axed its Today at Apple in-store sessions due to the (ongoing) coronavirus pandemic. This meant that customers couldn't go into a physical retail shop and learn how to do cool things with their devices, like how to make eye-catching artwork on an iPad, for instance. To help with that, Apple started leaning into online tutorials instead, publishing YouTube videos to show folks how to take full advantage of their device(s) from an artistic perspective.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is forcing a lot of changes, especially as the Delta variant spreads. While there was a point where it seemed like things might be going back to "normal," that's not so much the case anymore. It was just yesterday that Apple planned to welcome back in-person "Today at Apple" sessions at its physical retail stores in the United States and Europe, but it turns out that won't be happening after all.
