There has been news that Apple is going to hold an event to release the much awaited iOS 5 and an updated MobileMe. A German Web site claims that according to their reliable source, the iOS 5, the new mobile operating system and the new-look MobileMe will be unveiled at an event in early April. It is also being expected that MobileMe will become free syncing service. Presently MobileMe is offered as free trial for sixty days and after that Apple charges a small fee.

There has not been any news about the release of iOS 5 or iPhone 5 from Apple’s side. But people are expecting that the new mobile operating system will come with more advanced features so that it can give a tough fight to new Windows Phone 7. Now Windows Phone 7 has already been released and has got some very strong partners like Nokia with them. (Nokia has announced that it will be using Windows Phone 7 as their primary OS for smartphones.) So it can be easily understood that why people are waiting desperately to see what Apple’s iOS 5 is going to offer. As such Apple has announced for the launch of iPad 2 recently.

The website claimed through their partner website, that they have the knowledge of the event. They said that the event will be organised at the Apple campus in Cupertino, California during the 14th or 15th week of the year.

If you analyze this news, it cannot be alleged as rumor but it can be seen as an educated guess. If we recall, last year Apple announced and showed a preview of iOS 4 on April 8. It is very likely that Apple will try to keep its development schedule fairly stable. There are many products like iOS, iPhones, and iPads to be launched this year and therefore an early April preview of iOS 5 can be expected.

A lot has already been said about the features of the new and most advanced mobile operating system. And we are also desperate to know about some of the extraordinary features of iPhone 5 which will have iOS 5 as operating system. There was also a news that iPhone 5 is expected to be launched sometime this summer.

During the announcement of iPad 2, there wasn’t any news related to MobileMe, so it is also being expected by the people that a new version will be included with iOS launch. Now if we try to recall, Apple recently started offering Find My iPhone function of MobileMe at no cost for its iOS devices. So this fact is making many analysts to predict that Apple is not going to charge anything for syncing service.
