iOS 6 to be announced Monday at WWDC

Apple will be offering the keynote at the WorldWide Developers Conference on Monday in San Francisco, and everyone is eagerly anticipating what they will announce. A CNET photographer snapped a photo of a large iOS 6 banner at the venue where the event is being held, so it's now confirned that Apple will be announcing the latest software for the iPhone and iPad. Not much is known about it, though everyone is expecting a new Maps app. Also, a lot of blogs are betting that we'll see Siri for the iPad. I hope they're right. While Apple won't be live streaming the event, quite a number of bloggers in attendance will being doing live blogging -- giving you a blow-by-blow account of everything that's being said and shown, along with photos. Among those websites offering live blogging starting at 10 a.m. Pacific time will be CNET and Macworld.
