Steve Jobs Will Announce Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 And iCloud Monday At WWDC

Apple today announced that Steve Jobs will deliver the keynote at the WWDC conference on June 6th. Typically, speculation and rumors of product releases run rampant before any Apple keynote. This year, Apple has uncharacteristically spilled the beans and pre-announced this years keynote agenda.

First off, Apple will unveil Mac OS X Lion. The Lion developer previews are looking pretty polished, so it may be ready for release. Many are speculating that the OS will be available for download through the Mac App Store, no disc required!

Apple also announced that they will introduce iOS 5 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. I’m really looking forward to this, there haven’t been many iOS 5 rumors or leaks and I’m sure Apple will wow us with some amazing new features.

Finally, Apple will unveil their highly anticipated iCloud service. The word on the street is that iTunes will work directly with iCloud to provide seamless streaming of all your iTunes music straight from the cloud, no uploading required! iCloud will likely also offer many enhancements to Apple’s Mobile Me service.

I’m really intrigued by Apple’s decision to pre-announce this year’s WWDC keynote agenda. Apple adheres to a strict policy of never discussing unreleased products or services. Apple has given us a sneak peak of Mac OSX Lion already, but has never mentioned iOS 5 or iCloud. Hmm… maybe there’ll be a pretty big “One More Thing” this year!

From Apple:

Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. 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 Apples advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.
