According to the statement published by Apple, “the iPhone has already passed several of the required certification tests and its availability is scheduled for next June as planned. We really want users to be able to put their hands (and fingers) on the device so they can experience how revolutionary and magical it is. “
However, the fact that the product is ready for launch in June has had an unexpected consequence. The quality department and some key software engineering resources assigned to Mac OS X have been derived from his work to finalize the iPhone. As a result, Apple will not publish Leopard as part of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) to be held in June, as originally planned.
The statement continues, “While the Leopard features will be complete on that date, we cannot perform the quality tests that our users have come to expect from us. We plan to show our developers a near final version of Leopard during the conference, providing them with a beta version so they can do final testing. We think the wait will be worth it. “
