Apple has confirmed on June 6th you will witness the show off the new OS of iOS i.e iOS 5 and upcoming cloud services offering iCloud at the WWDC 2011 conference Moscone Center.Steve Jobs (along with other top officials) will deliver the opening keynote at the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 6 which starts at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. Eastern) on Monday, June 6.You will expect some good news on the iOS front with lot of bug fixes, over the air updates, new notification system etc.We also hear that will iOS will mimic Android-like widgets and also support for a wider range of voice controls too.As for iOS 5, the keynote will likely preview the new verion of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch OS for developers, with a consumer rollout presumably happening when the iPhone 5 is available for sale.
Mac OSX Lion(Version 10.7) is also expected to be talked about which is nothing but the eighth major release of of the OS X operating system. It was first revealed last fall at Apple’s “Back to the Mac” event, and many of its new features borrow heavily from iOS and will likely be the first OS update distributed by the Mac App Store. Coming to iCloud this would focus on what is called the music streaming feature.With Amazon and Google also in line with their Cloud Player and Google Music features currently, the iCloud feature is expected to help Apple give an upper hand over the rivals.
If you are following you might have read that Twitter is going to start its photosharing service soon leaping into its own photosharing service like yFrog and Twitpic.TechCrunch yesterday reported that they have heard from their sources that Apple will be a major partner with Twitter going forward, with the new photo service being integral to that partnership. The claim is that iOS 5 (yup, the same iOS 5 we’re going to hear all about at WWDC) will feature its very own Twitter photo uploading integration straight from the current sharing menu inside Photos.app in a similar way to how we email and send to MobileMe.
Reports from multiple sources suggest that Twitter is likely to have a big-time partner for such a service: Apple. Specifically, We are hearing that Apple’s new iOS 5 will come with an option to share images to Twitter baked into the OS. This would be similar to the way you can currently share videos on YouTube with one click in iOS. Obviously, a user would have to enable this feature by logging in with their Twitter credentials in iOS. There would then be a “Send to Twitter” option for pictures stored on your device.Thanks to Redmondpie and quotes from DaringFireball’s John Gruber, leads us to believe such loveliness as Twitter contact syncing could also be coming to iOS, as that would obviously need Twitter integration at a system and OS level. Other than that we’re not sure what to expect – we’re sure the boys from Cupertino have got something up their sleeves
So close to the bigger story, but yet so far. Imagine what else the system could provide if your Twitter account was a system-level service.
