Sitting at version 6.0, the new WWDC app features an all-new theme and a brand new home screen icon. Users also get the option to view an interactive map of the venue and street. Tapping on the new Venue tab will bring up information pertaining to the venue itself.


Here's the complete changelog of the newly released version of the app.

We’ve made several app updates to improve your experience in 2017, whether you’re attending or following along remotely. Now you can:

• 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 app is available to download straight from the App Store and you can jump into action by tapping on the link below. It's available for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch along with a sticker pack for iMessage. So you can rest easy knowing that all bases are covered from the get go.

Since WWDC focuses on software, therefore one should expect the company to announce iOS 11, macOS 10.13, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4. But it seems as though there's a chance of a slight hardware refresh too this time around. Reports are suggesting that Apple will be announcing a small update to the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. It is possible the aforementioned notebook will see an update to the latest Kaby Lake lineup of processors. But we will know for sure when the time comes.
