Apple's WWDC app updated with session info, streaming video section, more

To ready attendees for the 2017 WWDC, Apple has updated its companion app for iOS and tvOS, with details for some —but not all —of the sessions to be held.




Apple's release notes for the app note that there is a section to watch live streamed sessions on iOS and tvOS, stream or download WWDC videos from 2017 and previous years after they are made available, browse details on various events and sessions, mark favorites, get news updates, use indoor location to navigate the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, and provide feedback on content and speakers.

New to version 6.0.0 is the ability to watch curated video playlists, view venue and street maps, and use the app without signing in with a developer's ID.

Un-named sessions are pun-laden, with two labeled "This session name hasn't been engaged yet," with an icon of a ring associated with the events. "To bee determined" utilizes the bee emoji, and "Nobody nose what to call this yet" uses what's expected for a graphic.




Notably, session 1010 is a podcast studio, where developers and media can book time to record a session. Apple will make the schedule available at 7 a.m. daily at WWDC for participants to reserve a time slot.

Apple will kick-off the 2017 WWDC on June 5, with a keynote presentation, where the company will kick off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference and unveil the next-generation versions of iOS and macOS. Rumored to appear is a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, an update to the MacBook, and a possible minor MacBook Pro refresh.

The WWDC app is free, requires iOS 10.3 or later, and occupies 35MB of device storage space.
