Customers looking for some hands-on instructions with their new Apple Watch won’t be left in the dark once it launches next week. Starting April 24, Apple Inc. will be offering “Apple Watch Basics” workshops at its retail stores to show customers just how to use them.
Not all retail stores are hosting workshop sessions for the Apple Watch; participating locations will be listed on their individual webpages and sections of the Apple Store App, according to MacRumors. Most of the sessions are scheduled in one hour and 30 minute intervals and some are also available on the weekend.
So far, the stores offering them appear to be at random, since none of Apple’s flagship stores in New York City appear to offer the workshops at launch. That could change next week, since many of those same stores currently have no workshops scheduled for the day Apple Watch begins shipping.
While the workshop descriptions call for Apple Watch owners to bring in their new smartwatch and iPhone for the sessions, it’s unlikely that many will have them next Friday, considering that many preorders have delivery dates as far as June, due to supply constraints and global demand.
But in lieu of a physical Apple Watch to toy around with, Apple also has several guided tour videos to show its customers how to get around the Apple Watch, without needing to book an appointment.
