TechCrunch has reported that their two credible sources have confirmed that Apple has decided not to debut iOS 5 (the next major software update) at WWDC in June, 2011. Apple plans to hold off iOS 5 release until fall this year.
If this isn't a rumor then Apple's usual pattern of debuting new iOS each summer at WWDC would break. However, TC believes that Apple's pattern of unveiling new iPhone each year at WWDC might not break as iPhone 5 launch this summer is pretty much on the cards, but it will be running iOS 4.x.x.
TC also reported that we'd get our first glimpse of iOS 5 at WWDC 2011 and it will be a major software update that will include:
- An heavily cloud based iOS with numerous new features.
- A Music Locker service to stream multimedia between iOS devices. It makes sense to hold iOS 5 until the fall when Apple usually unveils new iPods.
- Location based services for finding friends and family.
- iOS 5 cloud based services will be discussed at WWDC in June and MAC OS X Lion would likely have an integration with these could services.
TechCrunch has been one of the most accurate websites when it comes to pinpointing information regarding Apple gadgets, so the chances are that the above information regarding iOS 5 is pretty much legit.
