Apple to Lift Product Embargo TomorrowOn Tuesday morning, Apple will lift an embargo securing details of a new product, sources tell AppleInsider. No further information is available at this time other than pricing, which is said to be around the suggested retail price of Mac OS X 10.3 Panther.
In September, sources claimed that the computer company was ambitiously targeting October 3rd as a prospective deployment date for Mac OS X 10.3 Panther. The date corresponded with the 10.3 / October 3rd scheme. Development of the next-generation OS seemed to have slipped slightly in the latter half of the month, possibly foiling plans surrounding the initial release date.
Around the same time, Apple halted seedings of the OS to its Apple Developer Connection members, most likely due to time constraints.
Meanwhile, Apple is already at work on the first revision to Mac OS X 10.3, which currently bears the version number Mac OS X 10.3.1, sources said. Builds of the update are being seeded internally as 7Cxx, with the most current build said to be Mac OS X 10.3.1 7C03. Corroborating information was published by MacRumors earlier in the day.
