We have been hearing rumors that Apple would announce iOS 6 at their World Wide Developer Conference which takes place later today, now we have a photo which confirms iOS 6 will be unveiled at WWDC 2012.
As you can see from the photo below iOS 6 is one of the main things that Apple will feature at WWDC, the next version of their mobile OS is expected to feature new maps software which Apple has developed themselves to replace Google Maps on iOS.
The WWDC keynote starts at 10AM Pacific Time, and we will have full details of what Apple announces later today. As well as iOS 6 we are also expecting a new range of Macs, iMacs and possibly a new Mac Pro.
It will be interesting to see what Apple has in store for iOS 6, and whether it will be as big a change to their mobile OS as iOS 5 was when it was announced last year.

Back in February Google announced that they were activating over 850,000 Android devices per day, and now Google’s Andy Rubin has announced on Twitter that Google are activating more than 900,000 Android devices each day.
There have been a couple of rumors that Andy Rubin may be leaving Google, so he decided to put an end to the rumors with the following tweet, which also included the updated details on Android activations.
No plans to leave Google. Oh, and just for meme completeness — there are over 900,000 android devices activated each day @Scobleizer
We suspect by the end of the year Google will be activating more than 1 million Android devices each day, which certainly would be very impressive.
Hotmail has seen many changes this past year, but the latest is that it is getting rebranded and is to be called Newmail. It’s not exactly a super name, but I guess they want to keep it simple.
Screenshots of Newmail leaked yesterday, and it looks like it is an entire overhaul from the old system. Let’s face it, it needed a huge overhaul. Not surprisingly, it kind of resembles Gmail’s layout. It should be faster as well as having a cleaner look. It will also integrate with Twitter and Facebook, so they apparently want to become a one stop shop when it comes to social media.
No matter how it works, it has to be better than how it was before. It certainly looks better now.
While feverishly revamping Flash with the all-new Next version — to keep HTML5 from killing it — Adobe is still plugging the current incarnation with smaller updates. To that end, Flash 11.3 just popped out of beta, which sees the company add a few notable goodies for the beleaguered plugin. On top of filling seven critical security holes, Adobe added a background updating feature for Mac OS X and signed the code in preparation for compatibility with Mountain Lion. That way it’ll align it with the upcoming Gatekeeper feature in the next OS X release, though you’ll have to dial its max security down one notch to get it. Lastly, sandboxing — already in Chrome — has been tacked on to Firefox as well, slowing hackers by isolating the plugin from critical system processes. All that fresh duct tape and polyfill should keep Flash rattling along — until Adobe can pull the gleaming Next platform out of the hangar. Meanwhile, click the source for the download links.
