Apple has announced a new support package for developers, which it hopes will help them adopt the company''s latest technologies, such as the iPhone 14 Pros Dynamic Island.

VP for Worldwide Developer Relations, Susan Prescott, revealed that the company has grown appetite for one-on-one help and conversation less than a month after the launch of the latest iPhone 14.

The new service, called Ask Apple, is divided into interactive Q&As and one-on-one meetings, office hours, and enlists a variety of other programs, including Tech Talks and Meet with App Store Experts.

Ask Apple

App developers from their Developer Program and Developer Enterprise Program may ask about topics such as testing on the most recent seeds, developing new and updated frameworks from the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), adopting new features like the Dynamic Island, SwiftUI, and accessibility, and designing their apps for future OS and hardware releases.

Depending on the level of assistance developers need, they may connect with Apple experts on Slack to discuss their concerns and share their findings, or take advantage of personal consultations to discuss code-level assistance, design guidance, input on implementing technologies and frameworks, and recommendations on resolving issues.

According to MacRumours (opens in new tab), one-on-one sessions are available in 25-minute slots.

Ask Apple is going to be an ongoing series, according to the company. The first round of opportunities is scheduled for the week of October 17, 2022, with no word on future dates. More importantly, Ask Apple is designed to be free of charge within the context of a Developer account.
