Apple iOS 6 launch date set for June 11?

Apple has traditionally used its WWDC event to unleash a new version of its mobile OS. Thursday brought the forst indication on when the event may be held

The next major update to Apple's iOS operating system for iPhone and iPad may be announced in the second week of June if the rumoured date for the WWDC turns out to be correct.

The Moscone Center in San Francisco has been booked out for a week for an unidentified "conference meeting" starting on June 11th. Both the venue and the timescale are in line with Apple's traditional developer expo.

At WWDC last year, which fell on June 7th, Apple unleashed iOS 5 complete with revamped notifications, reminders, iMessage, Newsstand and more, so it would make sense for the company to bring us the first look at iOS 6 this time around.

Last year was also the first time in five years Apple failed to launch a new iPhone at the event, preferring to wait until October to launch the iPhone 4S. There were few who'd bet against them repeating that pattern this year, meaning that a look at iOS 6 would only be a sneak preview and a developer-only release.

However, the company is likely to go the whole hog and show off the completed version of Mac OS X Mountain Lion, the latest version of its MacBook and iMac software, first previewed late last year.
