    Exclamation Leopard NOT to ship WWDC

    Apple Inc (AAPL:NASDAQ)


    Apple Statement




    PR Newswire 4:30 pm April 12, 2007


    Apple today released the following statement:

    iPhone has already passed several of its required certification tests and is on schedule to ship in late June as planned. We can't wait until customers get their hands (and fingers) on it and experience what a revolutionary and magical product it is. However, iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price -- we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS(R) X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned. While Leopard's features will be complete by then, we cannot deliver the quality release that we and our customers expect from us. We now plan to show our developers a near final version of Leopard at the conference, give them a beta copy to take home so they can do their f inal testing, and ship Leopard in October. We think it will be well worth the wait. Life often presents tradeoffs, and in this case we're sure we've made the right ones.

    Well what developer build will we get than? 10a999? Hmm but well maybe it is worth the new features. Currently, Tiger is still worth running it

    I suppose this news should not be a surprise... the Leopard builds I've used are all still very rough around the edges.

    Anyone else remember that one demo from WWDC06 where Steve was showing off the new Mail app, writing a note that was sent strait to his to-dos and his calendar, maybe saying...

    "release leopard on schedule"

    Just a little something, worth mentioning.

    If Apple is really pushing back their date, then there is a good chance that it was to try to get developers to re-buy their subscriptions for ADC for the next year. For example, if someone renewed right before WWDC06, then they will be 2 months short of the Leopard Release Date. That would mean that they would be missing out on THE MOST IMPORTANT builds that Apple has to offer, the ones that will guarantee compatibility for the next couple years.

    Given Apple's figures at WWDC06, they could stand to make a conservative $200,000,000 in ADC Subscriptions alone if this pans out. All of this depends on the composition of ADC Student, Select and Premier subscriptions out there, but for the sake of simplicity, I assumed half were students, nearly half were select with the 4,200 attendees at WWDC06 as being THE ONLY Premier members taken from the Select pot.

    Interesting theory, Adrian, but in cases like these I always fall back on a classic statement...
    "Never attribute to malice that which can be attributed to stupidity"

    I suspect the friggin' iPhone screwed Leopard more than anything else. After all, it's one of Steve's new pets and it gets full attention as a result.
