Apple confirms iOS 5 & iCloud for June 6th, no iPhone 5?

The new iteration of Apple’s iPhone and iPad operating system and its much talked-about cloud services offering will be officially unveiled to the world next month, the tech giant has revealed.

Seasoned Apple watchers will know that the company never ever gives advance notice of what its press events will bring the world. Typically all we're usually given to go on is a cryptic press invite, which may or may not contain clues about the products about to be showcased.

So it’s somewhat seismic that Apple has today issued a release telling us exactly what’s due on June 6th at the Worldwide Developers Conference and that Steve Jobs will be centre stage as compere.

Perhaps tellingly, however, there’s no mention of the iPhone 5, which is normally the star of Apple’s June beanos. That’s led to some to speculate that rumours of a delay were bang-on. Although for our money, it could just mean that Apple may just be keeping schtumm to at least retain a smidgeon of its mystique and stoke further speculation about the phone over the next week.

Details of what iCloud offers remain very thin on the ground right now. But according to Tech Crunch, its key features include an all-new, Android-style notification system and interactive widgets.
