Apple to update Mac OS X Tiger retail offeringsApple Computer this week is rolling out a couple of changes to its Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger retail offerings, AppleInsider has learned.
Earlier in the week, the company officially discontinued all current variants of its Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger retail software, which included version 10.4.3 of the operating system.
Apple is expected to replace Tiger and Tiger Family Pack retail boxes with a smaller box format, which the company pioneered alongside updates to its iLife and .Mac software packages in January.
