Apple has just confirmed the unveiling of iOS 5, iCloud and Mac OS X Lion at the WWDC 2011 event to be held in San Francisco from June 6th to June 11th 2011. It puts to rest (well, almost!) any hope of a new hardware release at the WWDC. The onus is clearly on the software side of the trade for Apple this year with new upgrades to iOS and Mac OS X.
Surprisingly, Apple has clearly mentioned that their CEO, Steve Jobs will be presenting the keynote at WWDC 2011 on Monday, June 6 2011 at 10am. There were some doubts on who would be presenting the keynote, considering the recent health status of Steve Jobs. But the charmer will be making it to the event nevertheless.
As expected, Apple’s very own cloud services offering, iCloud will be announced as well. Though they don’t mention the name of this cloud service, it is pretty much clear that the name will be iCloud, as Apple had recently purchased the domain iCloud.com!
Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apples advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.
There were lots of rumors about the announcement of next generation of iPhone (iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S) during WWDC 2011. But, that doesn’t seem to be the case now. Even the invite to WWDC 2011 read like this “Join us for a preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X.”
