The five day conference is a gathering of some of the biggest and brightest minds in the Apple development world, and in the past it has been ground zero for some of Apple’s biggest hardware unveilings as well.

This year, the big focus will of course be on Mac OS X Lion and another little release that goes by the name of iOS 5.

Apple designs Macs, the best personal computers in the world, along with OS X, iLife, iWork and professional software. Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store. Apple has reinvented the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store, and has recently introduced iPad 2 which is defining the future of mobile media and computing devices.

Unfortunately this means that we have to wait over two months before we get any details about iOS 5. But hey, at least we know when we can expect it to be unveiled.

The big questions remain; will Apple go ahead and show off the iPhone 5 as they did with the iPhone 4 last year? Will iOS 5 be delayed until fall as rumors suggest?
