The Worldwide Developers Conference of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is set to be held from June 11 up to June 15 and some industry watchers are expecting the iOS 6 to be unveiled at this time. A number of industry watchers are also hoping catch a glimpse of the upcoming iPhone 5 during the event that is set to be held in San Francisco. The same event last year saw Apple introducing the iOS 5, the predecessor of the iOS 6, that featured a notification and wireless update system.
This has led to conclusions that the iOS 6 may also be discussed by Apple during the upcoming event. In addition to the possible introduction of the iOS 6, additional information about the latest edition of the Mac desktop software, the Mac OS X Mountain Lion, may also be revealed by the company during the same event. The Mountain Lion is expected to be released by Apple during the summer.
Apple has normally introduced its latest iPhone during the WWDC in the past however this was changed with the iPhone 4S. The company decided to unveil the current version of the iPhone during a special event that was held last October.
Some industry watchers are speculating on the possibility that Apple may introduce the iPhone 5 during the summer although this appears to be improbable. If this will happen, the iPhone 4S will be in the market for less than one year. The iPhone 4S saw its sales reaching 35 million units during the last three months, which may give indications that Apple may replace the device too early.
Apparently the tickets for the upcoming WWDC 2012, where the iOS 6 is expected to be introduced, are reportedly sold out already. Some industry watchers have already voiced out some feature that they would want the iOS 6 to have including an official Siri API and auto app updating.
Whether or not these features will be included on the iOS 6 will likely be revealed if the software will be introduced during the upcoming Apple event.
