It’s Official: New Cloud Service and Software Coming From Apple

Tech pundits today are bubbling about Apple’s announcement that it will kick off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 6 by unveiling its next generation software: Mac OS X Lion and iOS 5, as well as a new cloud service called iCloud which is rumored to be Apple’s cloud service for music.
Apple hasn’t said what iCloud will include, but John Biggs writing for CrunchGear says the company is working on what would be a mirrored version of iTunes that will be much better than current “locker” models used by Amazon and Google and would likely replace iDisk, which is currently available through MobileMe. Apple has been signing with record labels such as Warner Music and EMI to supply content. Biggs says iCloud would likely allow users to dump their music into the cloud and access it anywhere or perhaps offer a service to access music on the go, similar to Rdio  and Spotify .
