As a rumors been around for a couple of months, iOS 5 is likely to be postponed till this fall and it’s said to be previewed at WWDC. Apple would revamp its MobileMe service as a cloud-based service for remote file and music storage. The upcoming iOS 5 is said to focus more on the cloud services. A number of new services may launch with this new version including a “music locker” service which could store your music remotely and a location service that lets you find friends and family members.

According to Techcrunch:

  • iOS 5 will launch in the fall and will be a major revamp of the OS.
  • It could well be previewed at WWDC, it just won’t be released then.
  • The iOS 5 launch is also likely to coincide with the release of a new type of iPad which we previously reported on.
  • The new iOS will be heavily built around the cloud, and we could see several new services launch from Apple that take advantage of this.
  • Yes, one of those is very likely a “music locker” service. There is also a fall launch aim for this, during Apple’s annual music-themed event.
  • But much of the cloud stuff will first be talked about at WWDC, Apple’s developer event which will take place in June.
  • One of the new cloud service elements is likely a location service that focuses on finding friends and family members.
  • So what about iPhone 5? If the Techcrunch’s source is right, it’s very likely the iPhone 5 will not come with iOS 5. Instead, an iOS 4.x version specifically designed for the new iPhone.
