Apple Confirms Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud

Apple today confirmed that CEO Steve Jobs (along with a team of Apple executives) will be presenting its "next generation software" at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m.

At the keynote, Apple will show off Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple's upcoming cloud services offering.

This marks the first official confirmation from Apple on its cloud services and the new name. In late April, Apple reportedly purchased the iCloud.com domain and name from a Swedish storage company for $4.5 million. While the exact monetary sum remains a mystery, we now know that Apple did indeed purchase the trademark.

Marcus Yam served as Tom's Hardware News Director during 2008-2014. He entered tech media in the late 90s and fondly remembers the days when an overclocked Celeron 300A and Voodoo2 SLI comprised a gaming rig with the ultimate street cred.
