Apple Readying Backend for New iOS Service, Possibly iCloud

We’ve had our ear to the ground of the rumorsphere, and have seen talk amongst various places that Apple is readying the backend for a new iOS (and possibly Mac) service. These “rumors” line up nicely with the current timeframe: in order to launch something at WWDC on June 6-10, the backend would need to begin going live.

As to what that backend will support, though, remains more or less a mystery. We speculate, however, that Apple is about to launch a service named iCloud, which is a name that was recently acquired from Xcerion. is rumored to be Apple’s answer to Amazon’s Cloud Player and the concisely-named Music Beta by Google.

More as we hear it!
