It seems we can stop speculating about what Apple’s cloud-based online service will be called. It’ll indeed be called “iCloud,” as the company itself announced in a press release this morning.

Bundled alongside what will be showcased during a keynote address at its developers conference that starts next Monday, the company has simply referred to it as “iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

Going purely off of recent buzz that’s surrounded “iCloud,” the idea is that it’ll entail online storage and streaming features for Apple’s iTunes music service. It also wouldn’t be incredibly shocking to find online file backup and synchronization features rolled into the “iCloud” service as well.

We’ll learn more about iCloud, Mac OS X, and new software for iPhones and iPads as the keynote address kicks off next Monday.

According to the press release:

“At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

The keynote starts at 10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern.
