Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has debuted its "Making Great Apps for the App Store" mini-site, which serves as an all-in-one resource to help developers create and launch successful apps.
This mini-site provides articles, technical insights and real world examples designed to empower developers to "[make] it simple for users around the world to discover, download and enjoy [developers'] apps," according to Apple.
The mini-site features four sections:
Developer Insights -- Highlights developer success stories.
Planning -- Includes information designed to help developers map out every step of the planning process.
Guidelines -- Boasts information about Apple's app review process, human interface and marketing guidelines and rules relating to Apple Pay and Apple Wallet.
Submissions -- Explains how developers can submit their apps to the App Store.

Ultimately, the mini-site may help many developers bolster their app-building skills.
The mini-site also generated a positive buzz among many developers.
However, some developers questioned the site's name.
Other developers, meanwhile, said they encountered layout problems with the mini-site.
Feeling like there's some web design/site layout anti-patterns on the Apple Developer site, these days.— Jack Brewster (@jackbrewster) April 27, 2016
In addition, Apple has announced its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2016, which will take place June 13 to June 17 in San Francisco.
WWDC 2016 will bring together the Apple developer community across its four software platforms — iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS.
And so far, getting a "golden ticket" to WWDC 2016 has proven to be a challenging yet rewarding experience for many developers.
