Invite asks to “join us for the future of iOS”.

There is only one Apple news that everyone can pretty much bank on and that’s its yearly World Wide Developer Conference traditionally held in San Francisco. Apple has begun dolling out invites to US media outlets for the yearly show and has confirmed a date of June 6 for this year.

So, what’s expected from the event? The next iPhone, most likely. The Internet has been a abuzz for the past few months, with rumors, reports and speculations flying from all corners of the web confirming and de-confirming said rumors and reports. However, the most commons are that the next iPhone (4GS or 5?) will have a larger screen, probably a different type of screen (AMOLED?) and a slightly different body to rectify any lingering issues with the antenna band. Apple are also likely to fit the same powerful hardware of the iPad 2 into the new iPhone as well.

Interestingly though, Apple is not really focusing on the next iPhone on this year’s invite. The message “Join us for a preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X” suggests that Apple will be focusing more on the next versions of desktop and mobile operating system. It is expected that Apple will preview iOS 5 and may announce the availability of Mac OS X Lion.
