No medical leave will prevent Apple CEO Steve Jobs from keeping a high profile as he will headline the keynote at Apple’s Annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday as reported by various international news sites, May 31, 2011.

As reported in a press release by Apple, Steve Jobs will be heading a group of executives in the unveiling of Apple‘s next generation of software, including iCloud, Apple‘s upcoming cloud services offering.

It was known from previous reports that in 2003, Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and in 2009 had a liver transplant. He took an indefinite leave of absence to focus on his health.

Apparently, running Apple during Jobs absence went to Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook, however, Jobs surprisingly sprung back at the San Francisco launch of the iPad 2, where the astonished spectators gave him a standing ovation.

Further reports reveal that Jobs and company will most likely introduce Lion, the newest version of Apple’s Mac OSX and iOS 5, the next generation of the mobile operating system which powers the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
