It's official (for real, this time) -- Steve Jobs will introduce iCloud, "Apple's upcoming cloud services offering," iOS 5 and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion during the WWDC keynote on June 6. Note that iCloud is named specifically and referred to as "cloud services," suggesting that it's more than music.
There has been much speculation about iCloud as a music locker, streaming service and MobileMe successor. Also, developers and customers alike have been eager to see iOS 5, and we were recently led to believe that Mac OS X Lion is getting close to a releasable state.
It's going to be an exciting keynote, and we'll have full coverage. See you on the 6th!
WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers. Mac® developers will see and learn how to develop world-class Mac OS X Lion applications using its latest technologies and capabilities. Mobile developers will be able to explore the latest innovations and capabilities of iOS and learn how to greatly enhance the functionality, performance and design of their apps. All developers can bring their code to the labs and work with Apple engineers.
