WWDC 2011 Mac OS X Lion: Meaning & Release Date

With just a matter of hours to go until Apple’s WWDC event kicks off in San Francisco, we can tell you that the rumors are still as rife as ever on the internet. Over the last few days, we have given you food for thought, with what may and may not be announced later on today, including news of the iPhone 5. Although this has been dismissed by Apple, they have said that iOS 5, iCloud and news of an eight major release of Mac OS X Lion will be announced.

So if the latter is to be included, what does this actually mean and when can we hope to get our hands on it? We know so far that that Apple’s Mac OS X Snow Leopard is coming to an end and according to iphonehelp via 9to5, the next Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will include the iPad features with the inclusion of Mac OS X Leopard.

Although it is still to be officially confirmed with other details, news is pointing to a release date of 14th June with availability at the Mac App Store, so not too much longer to wait.

Here at OSM, we have asked you what you would like to see come out of the WWDC which kicks off today for a total of five days? Is the Apple iPhone 5 for you the big announcement? We have asked whether you think its a good time to bring in a new iPhone seeing as the iPhone 4 is now coming up to a year old?

Of course we will be updating you with news throughout the day when it comes in from the WWDC.
