The iPhone maker’s official developer application comes to the developer conference with new features.
Since 2020 Apple’s central event for developers, the Worldwide Developers Conference, WWDC for short, only takes place virtually. The software part of the event is all the more important: in addition to the official developer website, where forums for current discussions with other visitors can be found, among other things, the official developer app of the iPhone group is the focus here.
Just in time for WWDC 2022
To coincide with WWDC 2022, which starts next Monday and will be held from June 6th to 10th, Apple has now updated this software. The new version 10 of the application, simply called Apple Developer, is available for all major Apple platforms: iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. So you can not only receive the WWDC on the go, but also watch it on a Mac or – via Apple TV – on the big TV in the house.
Version 10.0 from Apple Developer is for “everything that the WWDC22 has to offer”, writes Apple in the package insert. These include the so-called Digital Lounges, where developers can meet, virtual 1:1 sessions with Apple engineers (“1-on-1 labs”) and the so-called Coding & Design challenges where developers can show what they’ve got. To participate in ‘interactive activities’ To participate, you can now register directly in the developer app. Videos can be viewed with friends using Apple’s SharePlay function.
Search finally useful
Furthermore, Apple has made some bug fixes and performance improvements. This includes a significantly more useful search function, which is now ‘extensive’ should be and can finally deal with quotations. In addition, the download function has been cleaned up, which now presents the files in the order in which they were downloaded by the user. There is also a new theme on Mac specifically for macOS.
The Apple Developer application is free and available for download and use by all users. It’s also good for viewing developer videos from past WWDCs. There is also a useful offline mode. There are also various community functions, for which you then need a (free or paid) Apple developer access.
