Apple WWDC 2011 Event on June 6th to See iOS 5 and iCloud Roll Out; Cupertino Confirms

May 31, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Come June 6th, and we will have Cupertino converging yet again for another major reveal. The top brass at Apple will come together to host the WWDC 2011 keynote on that date, and we hear that the company will show off their new iOS 5. This apart, Apple has also revealed that the WWDC event will see iCloud, the company’s upcoming cloud services offering also being exposed to the world.

The WWDC venue will have chief Steve Jobs and other senior officials hosting the event at precisely 10 a.m. Pacific time. So, that looks like an event well choreographed so as to let the techno terrain know what’s next from Cupertino’s labs.

If you haven’t yet tried to know what’s embedded in all the talk about iOS 5, let’s tell you it is going to be an overhaul of Apple’s handheld firmware. That also means all bugs will also be done away with in the most effective manner.

What we expect from the new roll out is that iOS 5 could come spruced up with a new notification system, and over-the-air updates. Besides, it will also help cut down  dependence on desktops and notebooks.

We also get to hear that iOS 5 will incorporate Android-like widgets, and support for a wider range of voice controls too. Now, that sounds exciting, indeed!

Meanwhile, the cloud services offering – iCloud – will be built to focus more on music streaming. Akin to what Amazon and Google now offer with their Cloud Player or Google Music features currently, the iCloud feature is expected to help Apple tide over the problems these two rivals have been posing for quite long now.

Let’s get geared up to witness the new announcements on June 6th. Join us as we get you more details.
