Steve Jobs himself will, as usual, take the stage at the opening keynote address to make the announcements.
Usually Apple doesn’t release such information before a keynote event like this, but maybe it’s because of multiple iPhone 5 rumors recently that Apple has decided to come clean beforehand as to avoid “major disappoints” after the actual keynote, where their AAPL stock price usually falls a bit.
As for iCloud, it is expected to be a storage solution for music, kinda like Amazon Cloud Player and Google Music, but we’ll have to wait till monday to know for sure.
