Apple is sending a new round of invites to select developers for online sessions centered around bringing iPad apps to the Mac. The email asks developers to sign up for the “Bring Your iPad App to Mac” virtual workshops throughout the rest of February and the first half of March.
These latest ‘Bring Your iPad app to Mac’ virtual workshops are a part of a larger set of workshops Apple has been holding. The tech giant has previously invited developers to workshops centered around iOS 14 features like App Clips and widgets. Apple is seemingly holding these workshops as a replacement to the in-person experience that was lacking from WWDC 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Apple inviting developers to new ‘Bring Your iPad app to Mac’ virtual workshops
Available virtual sessions include workshops on February 15, 18, and 19 and March 8, 10, and 12. Only the developers who have been invited via email can sign up for the workshops. The tech giant says that developers will be able to engage and bring up inquiries during the presentation. One-on-one sessions with Apple experts are also available.
Apple explains in the email:
“Mac Catalyst lets you bring your existing iPad app to Mac. Learn how to optimize your app and use Mac Catalyst to build a native Mac app that shares the same project and source code. Explore the latest features in iPadOS 14 that can save you time during this process and discover how to incorporate platform-specific features and controls that look and behave like those in AppKit, so you can create an app that feels at home on Mac.”
The Cupertino tech giant has been holding these sessions since January and these recent emails mark the second round of invitations that have been sent to registered developers. Apple has held similar workshops for creating widgets for iOS 14 and in November last year, the company invited macOS developers to special online labs about the Apple Silicon platform
