It’s not the first time Apple has invited developers onto its campus – last year a series of ‘iPhone Tech Talks’ around the globe and this looks to be a similar gathering, though obviously a little more cosy.
No word as yet as to who has been invited or what will be discussed (it wouldn’t be secret otherwise, would it now?) but the smart money is on developers being grilled on how the Cupertino outfit can improve its App Store, especially with the Mac App Store due to launch inside the next 90 days.
Could this also be a sign that iOS 4.2 is nearing completion? It’s pretty much a given that developers will be able to get their hands on a new build at the meeting – hopefully this one will finally include video support in Airplay. If Apple sees fit to host a press conference to release 4.2 in November, we may well see apps that have been put together at this summit which would also mean the obligatory 30 minutes worth of random devs being paraded on-stage to show off 2 minutes of app goodness. You all just love those don’t you?
Nope, didn’t think so.
