Apple Delays Leopard Release Until October

This afternoon Apple announced that the release of Leopard would be delayed until October. The originally schedule date of release was in June and less than a month ago Apple denied rumors that the release date had been pushed back to October.

The reason for this delay apparently is due to “key software engineering and QA resources” being removed from the development of Leopard to work on the iPhone.

According to the announcement, developers will be given a preview of the ‘near final version’ as well as a beta copy of Leopard at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
