As Apple continues its increasing infiltration and domination in all things tech, it only seems natural that it makes its move to provide service in the cloud.

As tech site CrunchGear reports, the MobileMe service has shown considerable improvement with upgrades enhancing performance and stability that lead to gossip over a possible music service in the cloud like Rdio or Spotify.

The service, called iCloud, had circulated in the rumor mill for months, and it seems the company is ready to come forward and confirm reports with the details in just a few days.

In a short press release, the company said its CEO Steve Jobs and other Apple executives will kick off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC on June 6 with a keynote address beginning at 10 a.m.

At the conference, the tech giant will reveal its latest generation of software: Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and (drumroll please) iCloud, the company’s upcoming cloud services offering.

CrunchGear predicts iCloud with be a revamp of Me.com services, adding calendar and email syncing and a mirrored version of a users’ iTunes database, one that will supposedly be more impressive than Amazon or Google’s current offerings.

At Vernon Computer Source, we offer an array of Apple products that make up our desktop, tablet and laptop rental line. We’ll be following the events on June 6 to see what the company has in store for us next.
