RUMOR: Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger to arrive in April

“Apple will officially announce Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger’s release at an event in early April and will begin shipping the operating system within two or three weeks afterwards, Think Secret has learned. Apple has previously only stated that Tiger will ship during the first half of the 2005,” Ryan Katz reports for ThinkSecret.

“The event, sources say, is currently scheduled for Friday, April 1 and will be delivered via satellite to numerous locations around the world. Unknown at this point is where the event will take place and whether the media or other outsiders will be invited to attend. Well placed sources say Tiger will likely be in stores by April 15,” Katz reports.

  1. I already feel like one now! I sure hope it takes care of my iPod not mounting at all. But I still want Tiger anyway, even if it’s a released a few days later!

  2. Cedreca, your iPod may not be mounting for two reasons:

    First, the port or cable you are using is faulty. Older Macs’ FireWire ports lacked surge protection and sometimes this resulted in faulty ports.

    Second, the iPod hard drive may have an index file that needs replacing. Do this by downloading the latest iPod Firmware and installing it into the iPod.

  3. April 1st? Apple is famous for doing nutty things.

    One of the early Mac’s cost $666, then there was another one I forgot what it was.

    April 1st release for Tiger doesn’t surprise me.

    A good piece of advice is to clone your boot drive before updating, this way if it breaks at least you can boot from the 10.3.9 OS on a external drive and wipe Tiger off and reverse clone.
