It is finally official. Apple is all set to unveil iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion and its new cloud offering iCloud on Monday June 6. Apple's CEO Steve Jobs will be taking the stage at WWDC 2011 to announce the company's new services.
There has been much speculation regarding iOS 5 in particular. Many of the expectations include an improved notification system in iOS 5, amongst a host of other features. Mac OS X Lion is the eighth major release since the first ever release of Mac OS came out, and it obviously has Macintosh users really excited. We've been hearing about Apple's new cloud service for quite some time now, and on Monday, Steve Jobs will finally lift the curtain on what can be the finest cloud offering to date. Amazingly enough, no mention of the iPhone 5 or the next generation iPhone has been made, so it has now also been confirmed that WWDC 2011 is going to be an iPhone-less affair.
While we anxiously await Monday so that we can bring you the latest updates from WWDC 2011, here's the official press release that Apple has put out for all of us to read:
