June is typically Apple’s biggest month for product news, and this year is no exception. Steve Jobs will take the stage at 10 am Pacific today at San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center to deliver the company’s keynote address for the Worldwide Developer Conference. WWDC 2011 is all about software.
Cult of Mac is reporting that Apple’s Time Capsule may play a big part in Apple’s iCloud strategy. It is expected that Apple will use Time Capsules to run the iCloud service.
At Apple’s 1997 WWDC, Steve Jobs discusses “home directory”, which is essentially the same thing that we are just now calling “cloud computing.” Notable? Yes! Especially considering what we’re likely to see unfold on Monday!
In light of the many recent rumors surrounding the ICloud service that Apple is expected to announce at WWDC, several sources have come forward with supposed screenshots of the login page.
MacRumors got a tip that Apple inadvertently revealed an over-the-air app update feature for iOS in iTunes. This would indicate that such a feature will be available in iOS 5, which will be announced Monday at WWDC. Apple could also be bringing system updates to iOS which would finally allow users to cut the cord entirely.
Speculation has arisen this week concerning a possible refresh of Apple’s Airport wireless devices, due to a decrease in available supply at US Apple Stores. New speculation suggests that new AirPort devices may in fact run a version of Apple iOS.

As Apple works to prepare the Moscone Center for their 2011 WWDC conference, the observant are able to sneak an early glimpse of what is to come, and AppleInsider has managed to snap up some pics of the iCloud logo, as well as a confirmation that Lion + iOS5 + iCloud = WWDC!
Reports are coming in from across the US that many Apple Stores are low on stock or completely out of AirPort wireless devices, suggesting that a refresh of the popular wireless routers might be on its way soon.
