iOS 5, OS X Lion to be announced next week at WWDC 2011
Apple today announced that Steve Jobs will indeed host the keynote for the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next Monday in San Francisco. Apple plans to introduce the next generation of its mobile platform, iOS 5, as well as OS X Lion at the Worldwide Developers Conference next week on Monday, June 6.
Apple announced earlier that the focus of this year’s WWDC will be software, in particular iOS and Lion, and recent rumors claim that the next generation iPhone will not be announced at the event.
There have been unofficial trickles of information on all three products over the last few months. iOS 5 is expected to be a major overhaul to the operating system and may include features like over-the-air updates and a new mapping capability, though it will likely not make its way to related devices until this coming fall.
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.”
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.
