# How to autoref an appendix in IEEE template

I need to autoref an appendix but I need the autoref to appear as Appendix A not section A. I use an IEEE conference template. It has a specific command for appendices and to add appendices under it, it uses \section command. Here is my minimal script to illustrate the issue:

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}
\title{Title Here}
\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
Abstract here.
\end{abstract}

\section{Introduction}\label{sec:intro}
Some text here. See this (\autoref{app:cc}). I want it to appear as Appendix but it appears as section.
\clearpage
\appendices
\section{Title(1) here}\label{app:cc}
Some text here.

\end{document}


Here is a screenshot:

EDIT:

Please note that I do not want to override the section command with appendix. I use autoref to sections in other places.

I think the problem is due to IEEEtran using \appendices rather than the more commonly used \appendix.

Hopefully someone can offer a better solution but in the mean time I have a hacky solution... I've made a new command for referencing appendices, that offers the same output as if \autoref could detect the \appendices section properly.

MWE:

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\newcommand{\refappendix}[1]{\hyperref[#1]{Appendix~\ref*{#1}}}
\begin{document}
\title{Title Here}
\maketitle
\begin{abstract}
Abstract here.
\end{abstract}

\section{Introduction}\label{sec:intro}
Some text here. See this (\refappendix{app:cc}). I want it to appear as Appendix but it appears as section.
\clearpage

\appendices
\section{Title(1) here} \label{app:cc}
Some text here.

\end{document}
