Apple opened the Apple Developer Center in June of 2022, just ahead of the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference. Apple has described the Developer Center as a "world class facility" where developers can meet with Apple engineers, designers, and experts.
There are dedicated lab areas at the Developer Center, along with work pods, briefing centers, a studio with stage, and more. Meeting rooms are named after prior macOS releases, and the studio room is named Big Sur.
Outside of WWDC 2022 and 2023, Apple has extended limited invitations to developers to visit the Developer Center at Apple Park. The September 27 meetings will take place following the introduction of new iPhones on September 12 and after the launch of iOS 17, which we are expecting to see released around September 20.
