Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference is set to start on June 11th, and it looks like Apple will take the opportunity to introduce iOS 6 — the next version of its operating system for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The folks at 9to5Mac and MacRumors have obtained a series of photos showing workers putting up new banners for iOS 6 at the convention hall.

Update: iOS 6 beta is now available, and Apple’s new mobile operating system will be available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch this fall. It includes Facebook integration, turn-by-turn navigation, Siri improvements, and more.

iOS 6

About the only thing we know for certain about iOS 6 right now is the name. It’s not clear if Apple will actually release the operating system next week, or just introduce some of the key features that will be included when the OS is released later this year.

It’s likely that Apple will roll out a new Maps application to replace the current app powered by Google Maps. There have also been rumors recently that iOS 6 could feature system-level Facebook integration, much the way iOS 5 brought support for Twitter.
