iCloud Details Leaked Ahead of WWDC Keynote Event?

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will kick off at 10:00 am PT and we have already reported on Apple’s plan to showcase Mac OS X Lion, preview iOS 5 and announce iCloud services. A recent report published by LATimes now claims to reveal extra details about Apple’s upcoming cloud based service.

The publication believes that Apple will roll out iCloud as a free service for a limited time period for those customers who already buy music from iTunes which will allow them to upload their purchases to the cloud. Users will be able to later access their music from any web browser or an iOS device.

Eventually, the company will charge a subscription fee of $25/year for the same service. It is believed that the Cupertino based company could also be looking at ways to integrate advertisements into its services. However, it wasn’t clear if the ads will be applicable for paid users too.

We previously reported that Apple has reportedly signed licensing deals with four of the major music labels which include Warner Music Group, EMI Music Group, Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment. Additionally, we are also hearing that users might be allowed to upload Movies and TV shows.
