Apple continues to move toward retiring its One to One training program aimed at Mac customers, with the company's online store checkout process no longer offering the program as an add-on option for Mac purchases as of today.
Current online store checkout process for Macs with no mention of One to One
Today's change comes a few weeks after MacRumors initially reported rumors of One to One's impending demise and later confirmed meetings with retail staff to announce the change. The program will officially be discontinued on September 28, although with today's change it's clear the company is looking to halt new signups as much as possible ahead of that date.
Previous checkout options with both AppleCare and One to One offered
Priced at $99 per year and valid for up to three years following the purchase of a new Mac, Apple's One to One program offered to teach customers unfamiliar with the company's products everything from basic setup to more specialized sessions on apps like GarageBand and Final Cut Pro.
Apple will continue to offer free workshops and training in its stores, but with the more advanced paid One to One option being discontinued, it could offer an opportunity for resellers to promote their own similar programs.
