>iOS 5.0 Launch Delayed Until ‘Fall’, Preview at WWDC 2011?


According to TechCrunch, Apple will not release iOS 5.0 as per their earlier release cycle. iOS 5.0 will be released in fall and it will be previewed at World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. Generally Apple reveals iOS major updates during February and March. This year Apple will release iOS 5.0 in fall or September music event. According to the report, iOS 5 will be a major revamp and focuses on cloud based hosting for photos, videos, music and services.

Many people (including myself) were a bit disappointed that Apple didn’t devote any time during the iPad 2 unveiling to talking about iOS 5, the next major revamp of the software. But there may be a very good reason for that: it’s not coming anytime soon. In fact, the plan right now is to wait to launch iOS 5 until the fall, we’ve heard from two solid sources.

The major points which the report claims given below:

  • iOS 5 will launch in the fall and will be a major revamp of the OS.
  • The iOS 5 launch is also likely to coincide with the release of a new type of iPad, which we previously reported on.
  • It could well be previewed at WWDC, it just won’t be released then.
  • One of the new cloud service elements is likely a location service that focuses on finding friends and family members.
  • 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.

The report does not provide any information about iPhone 5 release date but it is expected that iPhone 5 will not be delayed to meet with an iOS 5 release. iPhone 5 will come with iOS 4.x.
