Developers invited to Cupertino to get their apps on
Apple gets developers in check

Apple has been giving developers the hurry up for creating Apple Watch apps, and the Cupertino giant could be gearing up for a major event.

Essential reading: Apple Watch release date

Sources have told 9to5Mac that Apple has asked developers to Cupertino to a series of secretive workshops, where developers are assigned 1984-like numbers to avoid their work being identified.

The hawk-eyed Apple watchers also reported that developers from major German banks had also been invited to Cupertino to get their Apple Pay apps in check, before the launch.

9to5Mac also spoke to a series of developers who offered some fascinating insights into the Watch experience.

"Developers in attendance this week called the Watch's Digital Crown 'really nice,' but one said that Force Touch 'takes time' to get used to. Another developer said that the Taptic Engine vibrating feature is 'not as impressive as expected,'" it said.

The Apple Watch machine is certainly gearing up for launch, with Tim Cook confirming that it was on track to ship in April. Apple is also fitting out its stores with safes and scales for measuring the weight of gold in the super high-end Apple Watch edition.
