Apple Statement

    CUPERTINO, Calif., April 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 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 final 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.
