In a somewhat odd move Apple has decided to pre-announce that at the upcoming WWDC keynote on June 6 Steve Jobs and other Apple executives are going to unveil iOS 5, iCloud and Mac OS X. Not exactly the best kept secrets in the world, but pre-announcement is not something that Apple typically does.

This is a very odd move which hopefully means that there will be some extremely significant advancements with iOS 5.

One rumor that seems to be floating around is that widgets will be added in iOS 5, does that mean there will be a new widget store, and a new framework for building widgets? Will be interesting to see, certainly feels like there will be some big news for iOS developers.

This is Apple’s press release making the announcement:
