Apple to 'unveil the future' of iOS, Mac OS X at June conference

Apple Inc. plans to roll out a road map for the next versions of its iOS and Mac OS X operating systems at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

"At this year's conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS," Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, said in a statement. "If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss."

The Cupertino, Calif., tech giant announced Monday that its annual developers conference would run from June 6 to 10 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

At the conference, Apple said, the company will demonstrate "new kinds of apps" that developers can build for iOS (which runs on Apple's iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch products) and Mac OS X (which runs on Apple laptop and desktop computers). It will host more than 100 technical sessions as well.

Apple is expected to provide more details about the features its Mac OS X Lion operating system will have. Apple has said Mac OS X Lion, which is set to be released this summer, will bring many traits from iOS into its traditional computer line.

Apple said more than 1,000 company engineers will be on hand to take a look at outside developers' code to help them improve their apps.
