With this update, the app will allow – on both iOS and tvOS – live streaming of videos from this year’s WWDC. Also, the app can now be used with the Slide Over and Split View – the latter pictured in action at the top of this article – multitasking features on compatible iPads running iOS 9.

Apple has also put in a schedule of sessions that will make up this year’s conference, though many of those sessions’ actual names have been concealed – presumably because they refer to crucial features to be announced at the conference. Apple’s WWDC app can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
