Apple iCloud streaming service confirmed for WWDC

Steve Jobs to out iCloud at WWDC on June 6th

Apple has officially confirmed that its repeatedly rumoured cloud-based music streaming service Apple iCloud will be officially unveiled by company CEO Steve Jobs during the WWDC keynote opening on June 6th.

Having announced that “Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6,” the Cupertino tech giant went on to add the speech will focus on “its next generation software.”

In an unusual and unexpected move, Apple’s official press release then went on to add that it will unveil “iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

Whilst the iPhone and iPad maker is remaining tight lipped on further details of the iCloud service until the software lands at the Worldwide Developers Conference, recent speculation and reported leaks have suggested the service will allow to wirelessly access their iTunes accounts remotely with data to be stored on the cloud. Further reported futures of the iCloud system include the up-scaling of damaged tracks to a higher sound quality.

As well as outing its eagerly awaited iCloud service, Apple has confirmed its WWDC keynote showing will see “Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X [and] iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch,” formally shown off.
