Steve Jobs to unveil iCloud at WWDC 2011
This marks the first public confirmation from Apple that it will be using the iCloud name for some type of online service. The company isn’t, however, saying what its iCloud service will include.
Rumors have suggested that iCloud could include an online music storage and streaming service tied to user’s iTunes accounts, and that it could be a new service that replaces MobileMe.
WWDC is Apple’s annual conference for iOS and Mac OS X developers, IT professionals and accessory makers. The event runs from June 6 through June 10 at the Moscone West center in San Francisco.
Mr. Jobs’s keynote presentation is scheduled to start at 10AM pacific time on June 6.
