Originally teased earlier this year, Apple has today formally announced its 2013 series of Tech Talks
, themed around iOS 7. The events start in San Francisco on October 8th, and will come to a close in London on December 18th. Other destination cities in the interim will include New York, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Berlin.
Unusual this year is that for each city Apple is hosting two separate talks: one for general app development, and another for game development. Participants will only be able to attend one of the talks, not both. The choice may be meant to free up as much space at the general events as possible.
To register, a person must be at least 13 years old and a member of Apple's iOS Developer Program as of today or earlier. Submissions are open until 10AM Pacific time on Friday, September 27th; even then, however, Apple says it will randomly select who gets to attend. Recording of the events will be prohibited, but Apple says it will post videos for developers shortly after the London talks are complete.
