Apple has just announced that this year’s World Wide Developers Conference will take place at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco, CA. This year’s event will be special as it will be the unveiling of Apple’s next major iOS version and that place in which Mac OS X 10.7′s final touches and technical details will be revealed. Apple’s announcment today confirms that iOS is in fact not being previewed at an event in April, for example. and will only be previewed in June. This lends credence to a fall launch for the new mobile operating system from Apple.
