It has now been confirmed that apple will indeed announce its iOS 6 software during the Worldwide Developers Conference.
According to MacRumors, another technology blog that extensively reports on apple, a banner on display at the venue of the WWD 2012 provides enough indication that iOS 6 would be launched during the event.
"The banner also displays a silver-coloured theme that has been rumoured to making its way to the iPhone to replace the blue theme present in many of Apple's apps..... With Apple having dropped numbering and other descriptors from its latest model of the iPad earlier this year, there has been speculation that the company may follow suit with other products such as the iPhone. Today's banner indicates that the company will at least continue marketing iOS using its version number," the blog report said.
Meanwhile, reports have also emerged that Apple could announce its iPad Mini and the new iPhone 5 sooner than October. However it is still not clear how soon it could be.
