Apple is actively bridging the gap between its in-house experts and the global developer community. With the introduction of the “Meet with Apple Experts” initiative, developers now have a platform to actively engage in sessions, labs, workshops, and even personalized consultations helmed by Apple specialists.
Apple’s commitment to this new endeavor is evident with its current offering of over 50 workshops and consultations. While the majority of these events are conducted online, catering to a worldwide developer audience, specific events related to the Apple Vision Pro headset necessitate an in-person visit. These specific sessions are stationed at the Apple Developer Center located within the iconic Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.
Developers can delve into a plethora of topics, including such options as a recap of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2023, insights into what’s new in iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, strategies to “Optimize Your App for iPhone,” and the essentials of “App Discovery and Marketing”.
Catering to the global developer community, many of these sessions are multilingual, being available in such languages as English, Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese.
One standout feature of this initiative allows developers to solicit personalized consultations on design and technology. These sessions offer critical feedback on matters ranging from refining app designs and troubleshooting bugs to the implementation of emerging technologies.
Moreover, a dedicated one-on-one App Review consultation is also available. This enables developers to benefit from insights into the app review process, while receiving advice on aligning their apps with Apple’s guidelines, and frequent reasons for app rejections. Linking developers directly, these sessions are facilitated by Apple evangelists, top-tier engineers, and design maestros.
Kicking off today, Apple’s sessions are slated to take place across dates in October and November.
