It seems that the iPhone is so important to Apple that it is willing to delay the release of OS X (formally codenamed Leopard) to support it. Apple?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s next operating system will be delayed by four months releasing in October instead of the intended mid June.
The delay has been caused by the demands of the Apple iPhone which is intended to go on sale in June. To make sure that they hit that target release date has brought over some engineers and quality testers who were working on the OS X project to work on the iPhone.
Apple has said in a statement that the sophisticated software on the iPhone had forced it to make some difficult choices about where to concentrate its development and engineering efforts.
A trial version of Leopard should be available in June at the Apple developer conference.
