Apple will also introduce new seating, sounds, wall displays for products, and mobile screens created by Apple designers for the educational sessions.

The initiative is a wider roll out of the Apple store opened in San Francisco, US in May 2016, which is created to be a 24-hour work and gathering space for the public as well as a regular retail store. There will be over 60 sessions in creative skills, held worldwide at 495 Apple stores.

This week, Apple announced a series of educational sessions in all 495 Apple store locations around the US, starting in May.

If you own an iPhone and are interested in photography, you can take six how-to sessions on shooting, organising your photos, editing photos and more.

The updates include new educational sessions dubbed "Today at Apple" that will launch next month in all of its stores, Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts explained to CBS in expansive interview on its This Morning show.
