Apple sent out a press release yesterday stating what we might come to expect at WWDC next week, Monday June 6th, 2011. The keynote will address iOS 5, the unveiling of OS X Lion, and their new iCloud, cloud based web service.
The iCloud service was purchased by Apple back in April of 2011. As of today, if you visit iCloud.com you’ll be directed to cloudme.com – iCloud is rumored to be Apples answer to the Amazon cloud services that were launched earlier this year. Supposedly we’ll be able to manage music and other media online with synched accounts and have the ability to access the data from any device. This could be Apples answer to DropBox and / or an alternative to .Mac. Ultimately, we’re just going to have to see what Apple has planned. Hopefully it’s something extremely exciting.
There’s not a whole lot of news about iOS 5 as of yet. We’re hoping it’s epic.
So far all we know about what’s to come in the Lion unveiling is what Apple has already posted on their website. Launchpad, Mac App Store, fullscreen apps, launchpad folders, Mission Control, more gesture support, autosave features, Versions, New Mail, etc. So it’s going to be exciting to see what else they have planned for OS X.
