iOS 5 as Early as April?
Rumours abound today, as German site Macerkopf.de claims that Apple will unveil the new version of iOS at the beginning of April.
They also say that the company will show off a new MobileMe.
The $99 per annum service could potentially become free if plans were to go ahead, as well as possible further integration with the OS if it is to be included in the event. The service may rely on self-storage at home rather than data being held in Apple-based servers. Further evidence is that Apple also discontinued sales of the boxed retail versions of MobileMe last month..
Apple's iOS event was held in April last year, leading us to believe an impending event seems likely. Another rumour is that the new new update would include improved voice navigation support, rendering your pretty touch screen a little more pointless..
If this is all to be true, it could be a busy couple of months for Apple, as we'll also be expecting their iPhone event around the end of June.
