The Wall Street Journal understands a 'photo sharing' feature will debut in upcoming iCloud updates. iCloud already offers users the capability to store and sync photos using Photo Stream. This expected feature could be a logical extension which may allow friends and contacts to comment on your photos.
Sources remain tight-lipped, so we will just have to wait and see on this one.
The technology giant, despite rolling out the 'media center' Apple TV set-top box years ago, has yet to open up the software to developers. Running a variant of its mobile iOS software, it could be time for Apple to open up its television counterpart to the developer field -- perhaps in preparation of an expected release of a 'smart TV' set of its own.
Tim Cook described television as an "area of intense interest" for the company, though failed to disclose any details -- naturally. Some say a television set is destined for 2013--14 after the struggling TV market recovers, while other Apple analysts suggest a smart TV-like device could be on the shelves at around Christmas time.
It is possible Apple may announce something relating to a television set during WWDC, but it would be hard to justify it unless there was a developer hook. If it was a smart TV running iOS 6 -- or some variant of -- it could include App Store functionality or APIs that could be hooked into by software makers.
