Did anything significant happen during to the company or industry recently (if so what and what effect do you think it had on the stock) Apple has officially confirmed the dates for the 2011 World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC), and WWDC 2011 will take place from the 6th of June 2011 to the 10th of June 2011 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. Apple are expected to unveil a range of things at this years WWDC which include the new iPhone 5, but it looks like we will also see some exciting stuff for Apple’s iOS and also Mac OS X. “At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.” We are expecting Apple to unveil the new iPhone 5 at WWDC 2011, as they have done in previous years. We also heard earlier today that we may not see iOS 5.0 be released until the fall of 2011, if this is the case we think Apple will definitely show off iOS 5.0 at this years WWDC.

Free Cloud Services Beyond Anything Offered to Date

Users can share calendars with friends and family, and the ad-free push Mail account is hosted at me.com. Your inbox and mailboxes are kept up-to-date across all your iOS devices and computers.

The App Store™ and iBookstore℠ now download purchased iOS apps and books to all your devices, not just the device they were purchased on. In addition, the App Store and iBookstore now let you see your purchase history, and simply tapping the iCloud icon will download any apps and books to any iOS device (up to 10 devices) at no additional cost.

iCloud Backup automatically and securely backs up your iOS devices to iCloud daily over Wi-Fi when you charge your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Backed up content includes...
