    Next week Apple will unveil two highly anticipated company projects.

    First the Cupertino-based tech giant will unveil its much-rumored iCloud service, which Apple confirmed the existence of in a release Tuesday.

    Second, Apple CEO Steve Jobs will unveil himself, again, in front of the world to introduce the new product, along with OSX Lion.

    Jobs will return to the public eye only for the second time since taking medical leave in January for unspecified reasons.

    The face of Apple will unveil the latest Apple offerings at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference, which starts Monday.

    News of Jobs' scheduled appearance next Monday pushed Apple's stock up 1.6 percent.
