Is Apple gearing up for yet another iOS event? Speculations have it that the company is planning to launch the next major version of their mobile operating system – iOS 5.0 – this April. Rumor mills are having a field day, while hardcore Apple fans are looking forward to the arrival of iOS 4.3. The OS is scheduled for release on 11th of this month.
Apple has been holding major iOS versions preview events at its Cupertino headquarters every year during late March-April period. Likewise, the iOS 5 event would also be held at the company’s Cupertino premises.
Last year, also Apple had hosted a sneak preview event of iOS 4.0 for the media during the first week of April.
We are not sure if the April date is a confirmed one, but we think we should go by the speculations as Apple has been following (well, almost) an April pattern when it comes to officially announcing future products.
Meanwhile, talking of more speculations, the grapevine is abuzz with the next generation iPhone – the iPhone 5 – probably readying itself for a gala debut bearing iOS 5.0. That sounds nice, right?
Apple rival Google, in the meanwhile, is also fighting it out for supremacy by lining up the Android 2.4 Ice Cream OS update.
The roll out is being scheduled for the Google I/O conference which gets underway on May 10 this year.
So that could well mean that Apple would announce their next major iOS version before Google’s event. Stay tuned as we go hunting for more on that.
