Lot of people are expecting Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC 2011) to be quite different then other year which is set for June – announcements for iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion and also the company launch of its cloud-based music streaming service called as iCloud. Amazon and Google have both launched online music services of their own in order to compete Apple’s iCloud launch.
iCloud is expected to be a part of MobileMe. At present Apple has stopped selling MobileMe in its retail stores and removed the product from its online search forms, sparking rumors that the service would be revamped and new features – such as iCloud – would be available when it relaunches.
Apple is rumored to be in talks with the major record labels, which suggests its cloud service will give users the opportunity to stream and purchase music they don’t already own. Whereas Amazon’s Cloud Player and Google’s Music Beta only provide you with the ability to upload your own music and listen to the collection you already own.
