Remember last week when we were debating when Apple would actually ship the new Mac OS X? A few publications -- citing no specific sources, mind you -- said Leopard would be delayed. Others made pretty convincing arguments that the company would be shipping the operating system before June 21 because Apple insisted Leopard would ship this spring.
Well, yesterday the pendulum swung the other way. FoxNews.com, citing an official announcement from Apple, reports that Leopard will be delayed until October. The culprit this time is the much-anticipated iPhone. The company says it had to borrow resources from Leopard developers in order to get the iPhone out on time, but that the wait for Leopard will be worth it.
The iPhone is slated to hit store shelves in June, and though the new Mac OS X features will be complete in time for the World Developers Conference, also in June, final testing on Leopard will be completed after the conference.
