Exactly a week before the start of the official event, Apple developers updated their proprietary WWDC viewer application. application Apple Developer offers access to videos and helpful articles for developers (and anyone else), including tech videos on new features for iPhone, iPad and iOS 14when it becomes officially available. Most importantly, the app will be able to watch live coverage of the WWDC 2020 inaugural event, as well as other sessions scheduled for next week.
WWDC viewer app
With the update, the app now features a schedule of upcoming events at WWDC 2020. There is an updated video section with highlights from previous presentations, Discover and Browse tabs, and new tools for adding favorites to favorites.
Another major update is that the Apple Developer app is now also available for the first time on macOS thanks to Catalyst technology. That is, now you do not need to open a browser to watch WWDC – you can launch the application on a Mac and relax with a cup of something pleasant. Externally, the application for Mac is very similar to that for iOS, since it is made using Catalyst technology: it allows you to transfer applications from iPhone / iPad to your computer with minimal changes.
