Apple in September began offering a range of "Meet with the Apple Experts" resources for developers, and the labs that are available this month are a continuation of that effort.

There are a range of ‌App Store‌ activities where developers can learn about app discovery, engagement, custom product pages, subscription best practices, and more, plus opportunities for developers to try the Vision Pro at test labs in Cupertino, London, Munich, New York City, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, or Tokyo.

Apple is also offering activities focused on the Vision Pro, with the aim of helping developers learn to design and build apps and games for the headset. Developers can opt in to one-on-one consultations as well, getting advice on app design, new technologies, and other topics.

The sessions are held in multiple time zones around the world, with some of them online and some in person. Apple's full list of Expert sessions is available on its developer website.

Side comment, it's kind of crazy that Apple is still using that icon despite abstracting it to such degree.
I miss the skeuomorphic icons that were self explanatory.

I do too but self explanatory is kind of fluid. To Steve coming up in the 60s and 70s, nothing said “Game Center” more than green felt. Not sure it all aged well.

Increasingly things are digital first. There are still yellow legal pads but is that where anyone under 50 who’s not in law school actually takes notes?

How about what kids today call the “save icon,” the picture of a 3.5” floppy disk even I haven’t used in at least 15 years and even then was very old.
