On June 6th at Apple’s WorldWide Developers Conference, Steve Jobs chief executive officer Apple Inc. will address this annual conference to unveil a service that lets users store content online and tout a new version of the software that runs the iPad and iPhone.
Following in the footsteps of Google Inc and Amazon.Com Inc, Apple is creating services that makes it easier for customers to store and access music and other contents via the internet. The songs and other contents are stored on remote servers rather than on a hard drive.
At this conference, Apple will demonstrate features of the new IOS software that powers the handheld device, as well as Mac OS Lion which is the eighth major update for the operating system for Mac laptops and desktops. This cloud option will help the iPhone compete with Google’s Andriod software.
iCloud is an overhaul of Apple’s MobileMe product introduced in 2008 so customers could pay S99 per year to store E-mail, calendar, and other contents on Apple’s servers.
A $1 billion data center has been built in North Carolina. This would be used to store content for this new cloud service.
