iOS 5 Developer Training Tour Announced, U.S. Dates Immediately Fill Up

Apple announced a “world tour” of developer training for iOS 5 today, offering to bring a day’s worth of free sessions to nine cities across the globe. The iOS 5 Tech Talk World Tour 2011 kicks off in Europe at the beginning of November and continues into the United States until the end of January.

The free, one-day conferences are open to any registered iOS developer who has already had an app accepted into the App Store. However, U.S. developers who haven’t registered are already out of luck. Within a few hours of the announcement, the January dates in New York, Seattle and Austin, Texas were all filled up.

Sessions will cover topics like iPhone and iPad UI design, using XCode, iCloud storage and implementing in-app purchases, among several others.

Apple is being very strict about who can attend these trainings. They’re intended exclusively for established developers, so simply having an iOS developer account isn’t enough to attend. The press is out of luck too. Apple says that “taking photographs, recording video and engaging in any form of live blogging during Tech Talk sessions is expressly prohibited.” Apple doesn’t want any broadcasting to happen at developer events like this because it’s possible they will include a sneak peak at future software and services.

In terms of new features, iOS 5 is one of the biggest updates ever made to Apple’s popular mobile operating system. Among its over 200 new features is iCloud, which lets developers build Web-based storage for documents and other data into their apps.

The new OS was released to the public last week and has already seen over 25 million installs.
