Following earlier reports that iOS 6 will feature a new 3D mapping platform, as well as possible Siri support for iPad and 3rd-party Siri APIs, The Wall Street Journal reports (via 9to5Mac) that Apple is also planning significant upgrades and improvements to iCloud.
According to the report, Apple is planning new photo and video sharing features for iCloud that will function like a social network, allowing users to post pictures, as well as comment on pictures that others have uploaded – this may be why Phil Schiller recently “quit” Instagram.
In addition to the new social photo sharing, Apple will also reportedly unveil the ability to wirelessly sync videos across iOS devices (likely an extension of their current Photo Stream service that also supports recorded video).
The report also claims that Apple will add new Notes and Reminders web apps to iCloud.com – features that have already been inadvertently leaked on iCloud’s beta site.
This is just the latest of many rumors regarding what Apple will unveil at WWDC. It’s looking like June may be an incredible month for Apple fans, and this years WWDC keynote may be the most exciting one to date!
