The new version of the WWDC app is available now in the App Store for free. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.1 or later. This year’s WWDC is expected to feature the launch of iOS 7 and iRadio, among other rumored Apple products and services. Stay tuned to AppAdvice for our coverage of WWDC 2013 as it happens.
