Apple announced on May 31 that it will discuss its next-generation desktop operating system Mac OS X Lion at its WWDC keynote in San Francisco. That operating system wont be a revolutionary upgrade, but it will deliver nice improvements. Expect Apple to talk about those improvements, as well as pricing and availability, at WWDC.
Apple is planning to hold its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco starting on June 6. The company will also be holding its annual keynote address where, historically, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has talked about updates to software and new versions of the company's iPhone. However, recent rumors suggest iPhone news won't be prominent at the event this year, and those in attendance will sit through discussions on software, including iOS 5 and Apple's upcoming desktop-based operating system, Mac OS X Lion. For its part, Apple hasn't released specific details what it has planned for WWDC and all of the reports surrounding the event are little more than rumors. But based on what Apple has said so far, and how the company has organized its keynotes in the past there are several other things that consumers and developers can look forward to at this year's event. Flip through this eWEEK slide show to find out what one might expect from Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference this year.
