Apple’s WWDC 2013 developer session videos have turned up on YouTube, giving an insider insight into what’s due in iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks later this year. The footage – nearly 100 videos including covering the changes in AirPrint, how best to make use of iAd, and how OS X push notifications will work – offers non-developers a glimpse of the goodies that registered iOS/OS X developers have had access to for some time.
As has been the case for some years now, tickets for WWDC 2013 sold out ridiculously quickly. In fact, it took less than two minutes for all of the spaces to go, despite them costing $1,599 apiece.
The lure is the opportunity to get early access to Apple’s upcoming platforms for mobile and desktop, as well as the chance to discuss them with the company’s own engineers. Apple holds multiple developer sessions over the course of the five day event.
What’s unclear is how the videos play into Apple’s WWDC NDA (non-disclosure agreement), which developers are expected to agree to. That’s intended to prevent features Apple hasn’t necessarily publicly talked about from leaking; it’s unclear who has uploaded these videos, and whether it was Apple itself.
If not, then the channel itself is likely to be shut down in short order. For a top-level view on OS X Mavericks, check out our preview.
Update: Apple has confirmed that the video uploads are not authorized by them, and that they will be removed shortly.
