Apple Updates WWDC App With Minor Bug Fixes

by John_A

Apple today released an update for the WWDC app for iOS devices and the Apple TV, introducing a number of bug fixes ahead of the kickoff of the conference next Monday.

The 5.0.1 update addresses several issues, fixing bugs that could cause news and schedule updates to display in the wrong case and making videos on the Apple TV more stable.

Thank you for your bug reports and feedback. This update includes the following resolutions:

– News displays properly in all cases.
– Friday sessions display correctly on iPad with a time zone outside of PDT.
– The schedule updates correctly in all cases.
– VoiceOver label is correct for the shuttle stop on Thursday’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium map.
– Videos on Apple TV are more stable.

Apple released the 2016 update for the WWDC app last week, debuting a new look and a new version thts also works on the fourth-generation Apple TV.

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.

Developers who are not able to attend WWDC will still be able to virtually attend sessions through the WWDC app on iOS devices and the Apple TV.

Earlier today, Apple updated its event website to note that it will be live streaming the 10:00 a.m. keynote event on June 13. It is not yet clear if the live stream will be available through the WWDC app, but if not, it will be viewable on Apple’s events website and through an events app on the Apple TV.

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