WWDC App Updated With Filters, 3D Touch, and Apple TV Dark Mode

Apple’s WWDC app typically gets a major update in the run-up to its annual developer conference. The remainder of the year, it’s unusual for the app to receive updates other than bug fixes and compatibility updates.

Now, you can filter WWDC session videos by whether they have been downloaded or watched.

Now, you can filter WWDC session videos by whether they have been downloaded or watched.

Today’s update of the WWDC app is a little different. Apple has introduced three substantive changes to the WWDC app:

  • Filters to show whether a session video has been downloaded or watched;
  • 3D Touch support for peeking and popping session lists; and
  • Support for dark mode on the Apple TV.

For developers, the WWDC app’s utility extends beyond the conference itself, so it’s nice to see Apple refining the app this late in the year. With hundreds of videos available, the new filters are a welcome way to weed out watched, space-hogging videos.
