Ahead of its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which begins next week, Apple today confirmed in a press release that it plans to use the event to reveal details about the next versions of it’s Mac OS & iOS software, along with its much speculated cloud services.

From the press release:

“Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS® X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®; and iCloud®, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

Although it was well known that Apple had purchased the icloud.com domain, this is the first time that the company has made any reference to it.

The press release also mentions that Steve Jobs will be involved in the keynote address, which hopefully indicates a return to better health after his latest, and much publicised medical leave of absence.
