Apple’s announcement of its World Wide Developers Conference has all-but confirmed that the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 5, will be unveiled in June, rather than previewed at an event in April.
Senior vice president of product marketing at Apple, Philip Schiller, said that this year’s event would indeed concentrate on iOS, as well as the upcoming Mac OS X 10.7.
“At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” he said, according to AppleInsider. “If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.”
The later unveiling of iOS has fueled speculation that the system will launch around September, most likely on the new iPhone 5, months after its expected June release.
