Apple to Reveal iCloud and iOS 5

I read today that Apple will deliver the keynote on June 6th announcing some exciting news.  The annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is held in San Francisco and has become a cult event almost.  This year they are not letting anyone down, with some exciting leaks news involving the next-generation versions of Apple’s software platforms, namely iOS 5, the Mac OS X Lion (new operating system), and the cloud service called iCloud.  The iCloud will directly compete with many other services now in production.  Unconfirmed reports appear to indicate iPhone 5 won’t be revealed until late summer, and won’t be in stores until fall.  Apple’s iCloud allow consumers to mirror their music libraries online for playback anywhere, on any PC or iOS device. Apple obtained the domain icloud.com in early 2009 and have been rumored to try to tap the commercial market but looks like they are simply targeting the residential for their service offerings.  Mac OS X Lion (version 10.7) is the eighth major release of of the OS X operating system.
