Apple will lift the lid on the next major upgrade for its operating system in April, it has been claimed.
According to a "trusted source" cited by German tech types Macerkopf.de, Cupertino will unveil iOS 5 around April 14th-15th at its California campus. That’d tie in with Apple’s press showcases for iOS 3 and iOS 4 in 2009 and 2010 respectively, both of which landed in April.
The site also claims that the revamped MobileMe service – which some had expected to show up at as the traditional 'One More Thing' at the recent iPad 2 launch event – will make its debut alongside the new iteration of the iOS platform.
Features that iOS 5 will be bringing to iDevices are a closely guarded secret. But it’s widely expected to offer an improved GameCenter experience and support for more printers for the AirPrint app, which currently only works with certain HP kit.
The all-new MobileMe, meanwhile, is likely to be made free to use and allow users to transfer songs they’ve downloaded via iTunes onto multiple devices.
