Apple originally announced that it was bringing back Tech Talks in October. The program is online and offers developers time with Apple's team to learn, ask questions, and work together on apps. Once finished, it will have held 100 live sessions and 1,500 office hours, a feat similar to what the company does for developers at WWDC each year in the summer.

The live sessions for the program are being hosted across a number of time zones including places in Bengaluru, India; Cupertino, California; London; Mexico City; São Paulo; Seoul, South Korea; Shanghai; Singapore; Sydney; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Tokyo.

Office hours provide an opportunity for developers to meet with Apple experts across App Review, Evangelism, App Store Connect, and Developer Technical Support for one-on-one, 30-minute conversations about their apps. Developers can choose a topic and ask questions about technology usage and adoption, refining their designs, resolving issues, and understanding guidelines and tools. Office hours also give them an opportunity to share feedback.

Tech Talks are free to all members of the Apple Developer Program and the Apple Developer Enterprise Program and those who are interested can learn more on the Apple Developer website. The last set of content will be released in two weeks.
