The next version of Apple’s mobile operating system iOS 6 could be previewed in mid-June, following reports that the date for this year’s WWDC has already been set.Cult of Mac points out that the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Apple’s long-standing venue of choice for launch events, has been booked out for a week from June 11. The listing notes a “corporate event,” but all signs point to Tim Cook taking to the stage for Apple’s annual developers’ conference.
Last year saw Apple announce iOS 5, which became available alongside the launch of the iPhone 4S in October, so it’s likely we’ll get a first look at iOS 6. WWDC 2011 also saw Apple showcase the completed version of Mac OS X 10.7, and with Mountain Lion already announced we should see the full monty unleashed this year.
No iPhone 5 though
Past WWDC events have also seen Apple announce new iPhones. However, Apple broke away from that tradition in 2011 by making us wait until October for the iPhone 4S. It’s highly unlikely we’ll see the iPhone 5 this summer.
