WWDC 2011

Apple announced that its annual developers conference, WWDC, will be held from June 6th to the 10th at Moscone West in San Francisco. According to the press release, Apple is “going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS” during this annual event.

In the past, Apple has used an April event to unveil iOS and WWDC to launch a new iPhone model with the latest generation of its mobile OS. The wording of the press release implies the first unveiling of iOS 5 will occur at WWDC, a situation that would exclude the possibility of an April event. If Apple reveals iOS in June, then the mobile operating system may not hit devices until the fall. This possibility fits in nicely with the recent rumors pointing to a fall launch of the mobile operating system. Of course, this latter sentence is based on rumor and speculation and Apple may surprise us with a double whammy of a hot, new iPhone and an equally impressive OS version this summer.

The full press release with the WWDC details is available on the second page.
