Apple’s ‘iCloud’ Icon Revealed Ahead of WWDC Keynote Event
Apple has started decorating the Moscone West conference center in San Francisco as it does before every event, and even went a step further by setting up a banner of the “iCloud” service in clear daylight. The picture above, which appears to have been taken by someone looking into the conference center, shows the words ‘iCloud’ in Apple’s classic font, and what appears to be the iCloud logo.
Apple has announced that it will be discussing iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion and iCloud at next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs will be making an appearance in order to deliver the keynote presentation on Monday, June 6th at 10AM PST.
Apple has been wrapping up deals with music labels and publishers to allow users to stream purchased music to their computers and other devices through the service, which will likely be integrated into iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion. Apple is all about integration, taking one service and assimilating it into all of their products (eg. iBooks). AppleInsider released a clearer shot of the banner (seen below), highlighting iOS 5, iCloud and Mac OS X Lion.
It’s increasingly becoming clear that iPhone 5 / 4S won’t be a part of this years conference. However, if Apple restricts iOS 5 to just iPhone 4 and drops support for iPhone 3GS then we can be sure that fifth gen iPhone could be available in September during the annual music event.[via MacRumors]
