Apple uploads full WWDC 2015 keynote to YouTube

Apple has just uploaded its full WWDC 2015 keynote to its YouTube channel a week after it took place. Apple late last week shared the bizarre opening skit from the event on its YouTube channel, as well.

At Apple’s WWDC 2015 keynote, we got our first glimpse at OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

Remember that crazy WWDC opening video? Apple just shared it on Youtube

Apple did something out of the ordinary to open WWDC this year. Before CEO Tim Cook took the stage, the company played a bizarre opening video that showed a behind the scenes look at the opening number it had planned but that never came to fruition. Featuring Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader, the video seemingly pays homage to the popular 2014 hit film Birdman.

You’re about to hear a lot more about gameplay and in-app screen recording as Apple implements an API for the first time in iOS 9. ReplayKit, a new framework that arrived for developers with the introduction of iOS 9 this week at WWDC, will enable screen recording for gameplay and other apps without the need for a Mac or a third-party solution.

With ReplayKit, developers will be able to offer users the ability to screen record gameplay or other apps automatically or manually with a single tap. Users will then be able to share recorded content through an iOS share sheet directly to social networks and video sharing sites. Apple pauses all incoming notifications and anything that might ruin the gameplay video experience, and only users will have access to the recorded videos.
