WWDC App Gains Apple Watch Support


Apple’s official iOS app for the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) received an update which is ahead of next month’s WWDC 2015 with support for the Apple Watch, conference and schedule information and more.

WWDC 3.0 for the iPhone and iPad brings important conference information straight to your wrist. The app can be used to keep tabs on related WWDC news, access floor plans, watch session videos and much more.

Similar to previous years, the app has a new icon (as seen below).

The release notes read “The WWDC app is now available for Apple Watch, so you can access conference information right from your wrist”. The note also mentions “You can also add sessions to Calendar, listen to session audio after you’ve left the app or locked your device, give feedback on session videos directly in the Videos tab, and utilize improved accessibility.”

In addition to the Now section that gives you a brief overview of what’s next at WWDC, the Apple Watch component of WWDC for iPhone includes a wrist-optimized overview of sessions and labs and lets you access your favorites.

WWDC starts on Monday, June 8th, 2015. The five-day conference will last through Friday, June 12th.

You can get this app for free in the App Store.
