Apple has confirmed that it will be launching a cloud based music service on Monday 6 June to kick off its WWDC conference in San Francisco.

In a press statement sent to Pocket-lint, the company confirms that: 

“Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m (PST).

“At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software - Mac OS X Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

It’s the first time the company has officially acknowledged the music service exists.

Apple iCloud is expected to work in a similar way to Google and Amazon music services launched in recent months and allow users to store music in the “cloud” to be streamed to devices like the iPad or iPhone.

Apple has also said that it will be demoing the next version of iOS - iOS 5, and Mac OS X Lion, it’s new operating system.
