A recent announcement by Twitter scheduling a couple of “Developer Teatimes” on October 10th and 12th, both focused on Twitter integration in iOS 5, further confirms that iOS 5 is going to arrive before those dates. The first teatime will be held in London on Oct. 10 and the next one in New York City on Oct. 12. The events limit only 150 attendees per city according to the report by The Next Web. Since iOS 5 is currently in developer’s beta phase, it is being speculated that these events are meant to closely coincide with iOS 5’s public release next month.
Twitter’s Jason Costa says:
There’s a lot going on in the ecosystem and we’d like to take this chance to share the highlights with you – including the latest developments with the platform, areas of opportunity that we’re seeing, and a heavy focus on the iOS 5 Twitter integration for developers. We’ll also be holding a Q&A session with members of the platform team, plus time to hang out with each other.
In all previous events related to Twitter in iOS 5, participants have been required to be Apple developers. This was the case with the event during WWDC, which was held at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, not the WWDC venue, but still required that participants be registered Apple developers.
