Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs will make his second public appearance this year on June 6, when he unveils a cloud computing service at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, reports Bloomberg.
Jobs, who is battling cancer, is in the middle of his third medical leave since 2004, the story says. Apple will be unveiling iCloud, a service that lets customers keep their songs and content such as TV shows on remote servers rather than a hard drive, as well as a new version of the software that runs the iPad and iPhone, the story says.
The new cloud computing service is an overhaul of Apple’s MobileMe product and may involve changes for iTunes, the story adds. As reported earlier, Apple has reached deals with three of the four major music labels and is close to signing an agreement with the fourth, clearing a key hurdle on the road to a workable cyber cloud music service.
Along with new iOS software that will facilitate cloud technology for the handheld devices, Apple plans to unveil Mac OS Lion, the next update for Mac laptops and desktops.
