WWDC Banner Hints at Surprise Announcement

Apple has been fairly open about what will be discussed at Monday’s World Wide Developers Conference keynote presentation, but at least one banner hints that there may be a surprise in store. A covered banner is hanging from the ceiling outside the keynote auditorium, which historically has been a good indicator that the company has a surprise announcement in store.

The keynote starts at 10AM pacific time and will be hosted by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The company has already said Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and the soon to be unveiled iCloud service will all be shown off.

The company hasn’t hinted that new hardware announcements are planned for the keynote, although Mr. Jobs’s flair for surprises could mean that the rumored MacBook Air update is about to happen, the iPhone 5 will be announced, or that rumors pointing to an updated Time Capsule with iCloud data storage is on the way.

WWDC is Apple’s annual conference for Mac OS X and iOS developers, IT professionals, and peripheral makers. The event runs from June 6 through June 10 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco.
