In an uncharacteristic move Apple has outed its plans for the WWDC keynote speech announcing via an official press release: “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.”
Confirming the keynote will focus on “its next generation software,” the Apple release announced “the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch,” will be shown off for the first time.
Despite remaining on a medical leave of absence, Apple’s talismanic front man Steve Jobs is set to appear on stage to show off the iOS software. Whilst no details have been formerly unveiled about new features that will come packaged in the Apple software, recent rumour and speculation has suggested wireless syncing will land with the imminent update.
Whilst Apple has prematurely revealed its software plans for WWDC, hardware remains illusive with no word of the mooted iPhone 5 making an appearance in the Apple release, further hinting at the widely reported delayed September launch.
