Apple updates WWDC app with new theme, curated playlists, and interactive maps

Apple has just pushed an update to their official WWDC app getting ready for next week’s developer conference. The update brings in a bright new red icon for the application alongside an iMessage stickers app. Today’s update also allows non-developers to use the application without having to sign-in to access its features.

Every year developer’s use the WWDC app to be kept up to date with the event’s official schedule and venue information. Apple’s update today brings a focus in the app with curated playlists around different developer themes. Apple has also updated the app bringing in a new theme across the app’s design. Playlist sections have bolder headlines, similar to Apple Music, but utilize different colors for visual organization.

This year’s schedule follows years’ past with silly titles for different events not yet ready to be announced. Scrolling through the current line-up, you’ll see events titled as “💍  this session name hasn’t been engaged yet”, “🐝  to bee determined”, and “👃 nobody nose what to call this yet”.
