I bought a new iPad last week, not from the Apple Store, but a nearby store. Same price etc. As someone new to Apple products and wanting help getting started, I was interested in the Apple store help program of ongoing workshops etc, which can only promote Apple and additional products I may need.
When looking at the web site for Apple stores, it states that workshops etc are available to those who have purchased at an Apple store. I have heard that the workshops are available to anyone, but am not sure is this is correct. Can anyone clarify this for me please, as there must be many people who receive Apple products as presents etc.
