Earlier today, Apple announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) from June 6 to June 10, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
According to the press release sent by Apple, the company will “unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” and might introduce a new integration framework between the two operating systems.
Activities at Apple’s WWDC 2011 include: more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of technology-specific topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and Mac OS technologies.
As usual, the event will also include a slew of coaching sessions to help developers better master coding techniques for Apple’s operating systems.
Interestingly enough, the press release implies that several sessions could be focused on the integration between Apple iOS and OS X – not exactly a surprise on the OS X side, given that the preview version of Lion already shows some layers of integration with iOS
. But on the iOS side, iOS 4 hasn’t shown any sign of additional integration points with OS X thus far, which leads us to believe that Apple could use the WWDC to offer a sneak peek of iOS 5 – and possibly the iPhone 5 – to its developers.
Do not rejoice just yet though, as according to recent reports, Apple allegedly delayed the launch of iOS 5 until fall 2011
