Apple will give a preview of iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion at the WWDC 2011.
The WWDC 2011 launches on June 6 with the highly anticipated keynote. Apple theme for the WWDC 2011 is to give developers a preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X. Two weeks ahead of the conference rumors intensify on what iOS 5 will be about.
TechCrunch's MG Siegler reports that Apple is supposed to introduce Widgets and a revamped notification system in iOS 5. Notifications are not a strong point in the current iPhone OS. So there is definitely room for improvements. Android has widgets and it is a possibility that Apple wants to match this. He also mentions that Voice control is not changing. There have been reports about a deal between Apple and speech recognition company Nuance, but it is not clear yet what Apple plans to do with them.
Another feature is not changing in iOS 5. 9to5Google reports that Google maps will still be in iOS 5. Apple is supposed to work on their own maps product, but it is suposed to be not ready in time for the iOS 5 release.
Apple is also rumored to unveil the iCould at the WWDC 2011. The iCloud services like the music locker service are supposed to be integrated into iOS 5.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
