Many of us were surprised when Apple’s iOS 5 wasn’t at least mentioned at the Cupertino outfit’s iPad 2 event last week, but MacRumors reports that we could be in for a whole new media event as soon as April.

iOS 5

Citing German site Macerkopf, Apple is expected to hold an event at it’s San Francisco headquarters next month to show off the new MobileMe alongside iOS 5.

The reason for a MobileMe and iOS 5 sharing an event could be a deep integration between the two. Rumors of a cloud-syncing service for iTunes music have been doing the rounds for some time now, as have claims that the next point-0 release of iOS will receive a complete overhaul of the way iDevices handle notifications. Rumors of advanced cloud-integration have been closely linked with yet more noise about a possible iPhone Nano, though that is looking increasingly unlikely.

Obviously Apple is keeping its cards close to its chest, though iOS 5 will need to be shown off to developers sooner or late, with an iPhone 5 expected in the coming months.
