WWDC 2018 is less than a week away and to prepare developers for the big event, Apple just updated its WWDC app for iPhone and iPad.

Developers and regular iOS users alike can all download the app to access information about sessions and other events that will be going down this week. The app comes with a new look too that makes videos more prominent than ever.

You can download the WWDC app directly from the App Store. The UI mostly stays the same as last year’s big update that made the app look more like Apple Music and Apple News. The biggest noticeable change is the new Apple logo on the app icon.

Developers can use the WWDC app to watch videos of sessions and labs which are now organized by topic. The new app also makes it quicker to add favorites, downloaded videos and more.

Per usual, a lot of the session titles have jokey names that obfuscate new features that will be included in iOS 12 and macOS 10.14. Some of the titles include “It’s about time we offered this one,” and “There’ll be no shade on this one.” There are also titles in languages like Portuguese, German, French, and Chinese.

WWDC 2018 will be where Apple unveils iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 4, tvOS 12 and other software updates that are coming out later this fall. New hardware could also make an appearance but the event usually focuses on software and developer tools,
