AltConf not allowed to stream Apple’s WWDC

You may not have heard of it before, but AltConf is an independently run developer conference held in San Francisco during the same week as Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), and Apple has just rained on their parade, so to speak. During previous years, AltConf has live streamed Apple's WWDC keynote for its own attendees, but even though the independent event caters to OS X and iOS developers, Apple has threatened legal action if organizers try to stream again this year.

Apple TV no-show at WWDC – Android TV free to take the reigns

Apple TV no-show at WWDC – Android TV free to take the reigns

Apple is about to deliver updates galore during WWDC 2015, their annual developer's conference. One product they won't be bringing heat to is the Apple TV. This wouldn't have been a surprise if there hadn't been such an abundance of rumors about Apple TV coming with a new wave of developer tools, a new Apple TV 2, etc., over the past several months - but there it is. Either something changed behind the scenes, or there never was a plan to bring Apple TV to the limelight at WWDC 2015 in the first place.

WWDC is coming: set your Apple TVs and Apple Watches

If you've had your fill of all things Google and Android last week, this week would be the perfect time to digest and detox because next week will be another belly bursting service of tech. Yes, it's time for Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, lovingly abbreviated to WWDC, taking place on June 8. Unsurprisingly, Apple has updated its Apple Events channel on Apple TVs to reflect the fact that the keynote will can be viewed from the Apple TV, which is expected to get a refresh during the event.

Apple’s (beta) App Analytics tool is now rolling out

Developers looking to get insight on why their apps may or may not be making it onto iPhones and iPads now have a new diagnostics tool. Simply called “App Analytics”, the tool is Apple’s way for Developers to discover all kinds of info about their apps, even how many page visit their app received in the App Store. The service is still in beta, and is being seeded on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re a Developer not on the list, it’s not too late to sign up.

WWDC 2015; five things we expect to see from Apple

WWDC 2015; five things we expect to see from Apple

The last year or so has been an exciting one for Apple, with significant product refreshes made across the board. We’ve also seen two new products introduced with Apple Watch and MacBook. Some of the whispers circulating after Apple’s second Watch event suggested they’d exhausted themselves, and there would be little left for WWDC. Though a lot has come to pass lately, maybe Apple got some of their light work off the desks around campus, and are about to make even bigger things happen. Curious what may be in store? Read on.

For scholarship students at WWDC, Swift is mandatory

For scholarship students at WWDC, Swift is mandatory

Swift is Apple’s new programming language that I (and clearly plenty of others) am extremely excited about. Nimble, quick, and increasingly powerful with every iteration, Swift is quickly (swiftly?) becoming the iOS language of choice. At WWDC this year, Apple is also making it requisite. Though propped up as a 'language for a later time' by many, Apple is forcing learners to pick it up yesterday. If you’re a student interested in going to WWDC on a scholarship, you have to know Swift.

Apple bans selfie sticks at WWDC 2015

Apple bans selfie sticks at WWDC 2015

With tickets for WWDC in such high demand, it's no surprise that developers might want to share the news of their attendance with their friends. Apple is all for selfies, it turns out, but just as long as they're not being taken with a selfie stick, with the WWDC 2015 attendance policy specifically calling out the opinion-splitting accessories - and, in fact, any monopod-like device which does a similar thing - as being banned from the event.
