The official WWDC 2012 application is a free 5.3 megabyte download designed for both the iPhone and iPad. It’s designed for WWDC attendees, to help them stay up-to-date while at the conference. Users can sign in to the app with the Apple ID associated with their ticket to the conference. From there they can browse the conference schedule, filter the schedule to find what they’re look for, provide feedback on sessions and labs, plan their week, etc.
The conference will feature a number of sessions designed to assist in creating applications for iOS and OS X. Apple is expected to use the keynote speech to unveil iOS 6, the next major upgrade to its mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad. Some also suspect that Apple will present a redesigned MacBook series after letting the line grow stale over the past couple years while focusing on developing its iPad.
Aside from the date and time of the keynote, no other details are known. Apple’s schedule doesn’t provide any information on who may be speaking, though CEO Tim Cook is likely to lead.
