apple today announcement that it resumes in-person “Today at Apple” sessions at Apple Stores across the United States.

Starting March 7, Apple will resume in-person sessions in time to celebrate Women’s History Month. Apple invites music fans and creators of all skill levels to their local Apple Store to explore remixing music in GarageBand, using the music of Lady Gaga.

During the free 30-minute session, attendees will experiment with Live Loops, Remix FX, and more to create a unique version of Lady Gaga’s song “Free Woman.” Participants can register now at apple.co/remix-lady-gaga.

Due to the global health crisis, Apple suspended in-person Today at Apple sessions and began offering a version on YouTube, uploading videos of drawing yourself as the “Peanuts” character in the Pages app using an ‌iPad‌ and ‌Apple Pencil‌, take and edit “otherworldly” photos with Night Mode, create looping videos in the Clips app, take portrait photos, and take expressive animal portraits.

Apple reversed its decision in August 2021 to continue in-person sessions in the United States, but resumed Today at Apple in-person sessions in Europe in September 2021. Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman recently reported that Apple plans to resume in-person sessions imminently, while also removing mask mandates based on local guidelines.
