Apple has now taken ownership of, following the company’s purchase of the domain (which we first reported on in April, earlier this year). As you can see in the above screenshot, Apple, Inc. is now listed as the official owner of the domain.

A couple of days ago, Apple announced in a press release that its cloud-based service would be called “iCloud.” Furthermore, the company noted that Steve Jobs (along with a team of Apple executives) will unveil the product at WWDC 2011′s keynote address, which is scheduled to take place on June 6, at 10 a.m.

With regards to the domain, up until recently the owner was listed as being “Xcerion.” However, Apple is now officially listed as the owner of, along with, too. Of course, it is no coincidence that this change comes ahead of WWDC. Perhaps this would suggest that Apple’s cloud-based service will launch very soon following the announcement next week?

We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out the relevant section of our iOS 5 rumor roundup page for all the latest information on Apple’s upcoming iCloud service!
