Apple has updated the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch and Apple TV with a new design, curated video playlists, interactive venue and street maps, a new venue tab and the ability to use all of the app’s features without signing in.
WWDC 6.0 app features
• Watch curated video playlists focused on featured themes.
• View interactive venue and street maps.
• See important venue information in the new Venue tab.
• Use all app features without signing in.
The WWDC app is focused on WWDC attendees and followers. People attending WWDC can get detailed information on sessions, their timings and locations. An informative and interactive venue map also provides directions to the scheduled sessions and events.
For people not attending the WWDC, there are videos playlists available in the app that can also be downloaded for offline viewing. Since the app supports Apple TV and Apple Watch, attendees and home viewers can use the app on these devices to take full advantage of large screen sizes and portability, respectively.
Apple has also included new stickers which can be used in iMessage. The stickers are very geeky and contain the Metal API logo, Activity app circle, the Vulcan salute, ‘command+Z’ undo shortcut and many more.

Unofficial macOS WWDC app
Despite the official WWDC app’s support for most of Apple’s platforms including iOS, tvOS, and watchOS, Apple has not released an app for macOS. Luckily, a developer has created an unofficial WWDC app for macOS which can be used to watch videos for this year and previous years, supports downloading videos offline and allows searching for events by track and platform. The latest update to the app brings macOS picture-in-picture support, annotations, and bookmarking for videos.
