Apple iOS 6 Release Date Set For June?

The next iPhone operating system, iOS 6, is likely to be released in June. WWDC will occur in that month, and is traditionally where big Apple announcements are made.

The Moscone Center in San Francisco has been booked out for a “conference meeting” on 11 June. This timing chimes perfectly with when Apple usually holds its WWDC event, where something big and exciting is almost always revealed to the world.

Last year, Apple unveiled iOS 5, which introduced many big improvements to the iPhone and iPad system, including iMessage, Newstand and the re-worked notifications system. Quite what delights the new edition will offer isn’t yet clear.

On our most-wanted list are Siri for the new iPad, being able to plonk a clock on the lead homescreen and an apps “shopping cart” that’ll let you buy/download multiple apps much more quickly. What Apple will actually drop on us is anyone’s guess.

There’s also a chance that the iPhone 5 could be released on this date, but that’s a real stab in the dark guess. As has been the case for several years now, iPhone rumours start flying about 47 minutes after the last one has been released, and they’re about as reliable as UK trains during a snowstorm.

Have any top features you’d like to see implemented in iOS 6? Let us know.
