Apple may unveil iOS 5 and a new MobileMe in early April
Earlier rumors suggested that last week's iPad 2 event would include a mention of iOS 5. But alas, those rumors were unsubstantiated. Now, the German site, Macerkopf, reports that Apple is planning an April event to unveil both iOS 5 and a new MobileMe.

An April announcement is in keeping with Apple's typical schedule, in which the new OS would be announced to give developers a jump on the June or July release of a new device. For example: the iOS 4 announcement took place on April 8th of last year, preceding the iPhone 4 announcement. So we're inclined to believe this new rumor.

A combined MobileMe and iOS 5 announcement would be logical, considering their allegedly converging functionality. MobileMe will likely expand to include many new cloud services, including iTunes syncing. iOS 5 is also expected to improve the much-criticized notification system of iOS devices. And a recent Apple acquisition points to such a change in notifications.

We can't speak on the credibility of Macerkopf's source, so we should take this rumor with a grain of salt. But considering Apple's typical timeline, the event seems likely.
