Apple confirms iOS 5, iCloud, to be unveiled June 6th
Apple’s WWDC event on June 6th is one of the most anticipated events this year, but what will it bring? Cupertino has just released a statement confirming some major announcements to be made at the conference including the unveiling of iOS 5.0, the next major update to Apple’s mobile operating system, and iCloud, a cloud-based music service.

“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 Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®; and iCloud®, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

That’s the first official confirmation of the rumored about cloud music service, while the news about iOS update had already appeared in invites for the event. But as exciting as it all sounds, there is still one thing sorely missing from the statement and that’s the iPhone 5. It seems that all rumors about a later release date of the handset, probably in September, are about to come true and WWDC will be much more of a software-centric event this year.

In addition, the preliminary announcement of the cloud-based service and iOS 5 raise a lot of questions as Apple's strategy is to usually hold down announcements until the very event. But you never know what that iconic and most influential CEO could surprise us with, do you? And if you've had any doubts about whether he'll be the one to present the new features, you can wipe them away.
