Sexed-up iCloud to introduce picture and video sharing?

Sexed-up iCloud to introduce picture and video sharing?The iPhone 5 isn’t expected till later in the year, probably October, but before then there’s every chance Apple will lift the lid on software-related goodies. That’s how things went down last year, anyway, with a first look at iOS 5 and iCloud at WWDC in June.

With this year’s WWDC kicking off in less than four weeks, the rumour mill is starting to spin fast, and now the Wall Street Journal is getting in on the action.

According to good old WSJ, a revamped iCloud will be unveiled at WWDC, with photo and video sharing being one of the key features.

Da Journal’s source suggests that iCloud users will be able to “share sets of photos with other iCloud users and to comment on them.” How very social.

We’ve also heard that iOS 6 will see Apple drop the Google back-end from its Google Maps app, replacing it with technology offering “photo-realistic 3D mapping”. Noice.

It’ll be interesting to see if iOS moves away from the plain old x by y icon arrangement. A mate recently revealed he was contemplating Windows Phone 7 because he was getting bored with iOS. Interesting.

They could look at some Cydia tweaks for a more flexible UI, that's for sure:
resizable icons, that sidebar you can use for shortcuts and the scrollable dock...(especially that - as in the taskswitcher you can already scroll through more than 5 or 6 icons...).
