Apple has introduced Ask Apple, which is a new series of interactive one-on-one consultations and Q&As aimed at providing developers with more opportunities to connect directly with Apple experts for feedback, insight, and support.
Developers joining Ask Apple can inquire about several topics, such as testing the latest seeds, adopting new features like Dynamic Island, and implementing updated frameworks from Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). It can also provide insights on moving to Swift, SwiftUI, and preparing their apps for new hardware and OS releases.
Ask Apple is free, and registrations are open for all the members of Apple Developer Program and Apple Developer Enterprise Program. This series will allow developers to ask several Apple team members questions during one-on-one office hours and through Q&As on Slack. Q&As allow developers to connect with Apple designers, evangelists, and engineers to get their queries answered, engage with other developers worldwide, and share their learnings.
Office hours focus on creating and distributing compelling apps that take advantage of the latest technology and design. Developers can ask for code-level assistance, design guidance, input on implementing technologies and frameworks, advice on resolving issues or help with App Review Guidelines and distribution tools.
Ask Apple is built on successful programs like Tech Talks and Meet with App Store Experts, which have offered developers more than 200 live presentations and thousands of office hours over the past year.
