Apple’s cloud plans to become less vaporous next week, along with Mac OS and iOS news
Apple said the new software would include iCloud, which will be the company’s cloud computing offering. The company will also show a new release of its OS X operating system for desktop and laptop computers, called Lion, and iOS 5, the latest update to Apple’s mobile operating system, which supports the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
The company’s decision to announce the keynote event in advance was unusual for Apple as the company usually goes to great pains to remain secretive about any coming announcements or new products.
Apple has recently completed a billion dollar data-center that it is expected to discuss at the developers conference.
