Apple says developers must ‘soon’ return their Developer Transition Kit

AppleInsider notes that Apple has emailed developers that it will “soon be time to return” the Developer Transition Kit, a custom Mac mini powered by an A12Z Bionic system-on-chip that was issued to help developer move their software to Silicon Macs as part of the Universal App Quick Start Program. Developers who return the DTK kit will receive a US$200 credit toward a new M1 Mac.

Apple says the Universal Apple Quick Start Program includes “all the tools, resources, and support you need to build next-generation Universal apps, optimize apps built with Mac Catalyst, and test iPhone and iPad apps on an Apple Silicon Mac.”

“Now that the new MacBook Air, Mac mini, and MacBook Pro powered by M1 are available, it’ll soon be time to return the Developer Transition Kit (DTK) that was sent to you as part of the program,” Apple says.

The DTK Mac mi has 16GB of memory, a 512SSD, two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, an HDMI port, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and Gigabit Ethernet.
