iOS 5 and Revamped MobileMe to be Announced at Early April Apple Event?

 In Mobile Technology

A source for the German Mac blog claims that Apple is to hold a media event in the first or second week of April to introduce the iOS 5 software for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, as well as reveal the changes and improvements made to the MobileMe service.

This date fits in nicely with similar Apple events in previous years, which have typically been held around the beginning of April in order to prepare developers for a public release in the June or July.

Before Apple releases new iOS firmwares to the public, it’s important for third-party developers to ensure that their applications and games are compatible with the upcoming release, and that when users upgrade the software on their devices, they won’t encounter any problems when running their apps.

The MobileMe revamp is rumored to introduce content streaming to iOS devices, social networking and geolocation features, as well as improvements to existing services.

Earlier rumors had suggested that the iOS 5 software, along with MobileMe changes, would be announced together with the second-generation iPad at Apple’s keynote at the beginning of this month. However, neither of these subjects were featured at the event.
