Apple is one of the leading titans in technology today. With products that include the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV, Apple services over 500 million users worldwide with over 1 Billion Active Apple Devices. Individuals use their devices daily and more so in a society where Education, Business, and Leisure are all operating exclusively on the World Wide Web due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

Apple recognizes the need for individuals to know their devices through and through to be able to successfully and efficiently conduct their everyday functions from home. Education and Professional Development are fields that Apple is keying in on with their ‘Apple Tech Update’ sessions.

 

Coming up this Thursday, April 30, 2020 on the Apple Tech Update series is the Apple Tech Update for Education. This session will focus on iPhone Operating System (iOS), Mac Operating System, Mobile Device Management (MDM), engineering content as well as curricular content. This 2-hour session is FREE for all users and aims to provide important updates to help Educators worldwide on their Apple Devices.

Apple is also providing various essential professional development sessions with Apple Professional Learning Specialists next week that will be listed below. Each virtual conference will run for approximately 45 minutes and will provide an opportunity for educators to experience the videos in the Apple Education Learning Series and engage in dialogue with Team Members from Apple.
