Apple’s senior vice president of iOS software Scott Forstall today previewed iOS 6, the next generation of the company’s mobile operating system at WWDC 2012, which includes an all-new Maps app as well as Passbook.
Although it’s little surprise after seeing banners go up Friday afternoon, iOS 6 is indeed real and Apple wasted no time jumping right in to show developers what they’ll be working with in the months ahead.
The iOS 6 banners went up in Moscone West on Friday afternoon, confirming that Apple will, at the very least, preview the next version of its mobile operating system to developers when WWDC 2012 kicks off today -- and you’ll probably be able to download it shortly thereafter.
Well, this is, folks -- the last weekday before Moscone West blows up with Apple goodness on Monday, June 11 at 10am PST. You can count on MacLife.com to bring you all the latest, grooviest news as it flies out of San Francisco and makes its way across the internet, but in the meantime check out that nifty iOS 6 banner getting hung today.

If you believe the rumor mill, Apple executives will address developers on Monday morning and update almost their entire product line in the space of less than two hours. To avoid disappointment, just keep repeating: “It’s only a keynote… it’s only a keynote… it’s only a keynote…”
Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference kicks off on Monday, June 11 with a keynote from CEO Tim Cook and friends, and in keeping with tradition, the banners are already going up outside of the Moscone Center in San Francisco ahead of the event.
Now that June is in full swing, the annual E3 show kicks off this week in Los Angeles, only the first of a number of exciting (and costly to our wallet) events. By this time next week we’ll be basking in the glow of whatever Apple has deigned to show us at WWDC, and Google I/O will wrap up the busy month with their own brand of fun. Might be a good time to put those credit cards on ice, right? In the meantime, soak up some absolutely free fun with today’s recap for Monday, June 4, 2012.
