Apple Updates Official WWDC App With New Look, Apple TV Compatibility

Ahead of its Worldwide Developers Conference, set to kick off on June 13, Apple has updated its official WWDC app with a new look and a new version that works on the fourth-generation Apple TV. The update also adds support for live streaming on iOS and tvOS and adds multitasking support on compatible iPads.

A tvOS version of this app is now available, so you can stream and download videos from WWDC 2016 and previous conferences on Apple TV. This update supports live streaming on iOS and tvOS. It also supports multitasking on iOS 9 on iPad.

The WWDC app is designed to be used by both conference attendees and developers who were not able to obtain tickets for the event. In addition to providing on-site tools for viewing start times for labs, sessions, and events, the app also offers the ability to watch live streaming sessions with Apple engineers.

With the new tvOS version of the WWDC app, developers who are not attending the San Francisco conference will be able to virtually attend sessions through their television screens.

Apple has also released a schedule of sessions that will take place during the conference, many with humorous names to conceal information that won't be available until iOS 10 and OS X 10.12 are unveiled at the keynote event.

The Worldwide Developers Conference starts on June 13 with a keynote that will take place at 10:00 a.m. at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Apple will likely live stream the keynote on both its website and on the Apple TV, and MacRumors will also provide live coverage on MacRumors.com and through the MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

Apple's WWDC app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

The dark theme on the app makes me hopeful that we will finally see Dark Mode on iOS 10. WWDC can't come soon enough :)

Well it still says OSX in the screenshot. Maybe it won't change to macOS (or a variant)
If Apple plans to rename it to Mac OS, I'm sure they intend to keep it a surprise...

But honestly, renaming to Mac OS or MacOS seems like a regression to me.

Steve told Tim to never think what he would do, but instead do what he thought was best for the company

Tim said this
"[...] was to never ask what he would do. ‘Just do what’s right,'"

Do you think that the WWDC app would accidentally reveal that?
