Even though Apple doesn’t have retail stores in India yet, it’s bringing to the country a creative initiative that was – until earlier this year – limited to physical retail stores. Starting from today, users in India will now be able to attend ‘Today at Apple’ sessions online.
Apple says that it plans to introduce ‘Today at Apple’ with photography and music sessions. Photographers with whom sessions are being conducted include Siddhartha Joshi, Avani Rai, Anurag Banerjee Prarthna Singh and Hashim Badani. Music sessions will feature artists such as Raja Kumari, Prateek Kuhad, DIVINE, Lisa Mishra and Aditi Ramesh.
If you’re want a glimpse of what you might see in these sessions, DIVINE told Mashable India that he’ll be speaking about his creative process and how he uses his Apple products to aid the same.

For the uninitiated, ‘Today at Apple’ is an initiative from Apple – launched in 2017 – that involves conducting in-store sessions on topics ranging from photo and video to coding and design. These sessions are led either by Apple’s Creative Pros, who are employees that have in-depth knowledge of Apple products, or by renowned artists, photographers and musicians.
Because of the pandemic, Apple launched a digital version of their ‘Today at Apple’ sessions, called Today at Apple @ Home. These were how-to videos hosted by Creative Pros that helped Apple users pursue creative projects with their Apple products, from the comfort and safety of their homes.
Apart from the launch of ‘Today at Apple’ sessions in India, Apple is also bringing to India the option to engrave on the AirPods, the iPad and the Apple Pencil. While customers of the iPad and the Apple Pencil will only be able to engrave in English, AirPods customers will be able to engrave in 8 different languages: English, Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Telugu, Bengali, Tamil and Kannada. AirPods customers will also have the leeway to engrave emojis on the case.
There is no additional cost for having the aforementioned items engraved and users will be able to place their requests while buying the products on Apple’s online store.
