RUMOR: Apple to release Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard in June

Apple Store“Apple is currently planning to release Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard in June, mostly likely at or around its Worldwide Developers Conference, reliable sources report,” Think Secret reports.

“The release will come at the tail end of spring, which ends June 21, enabling Apple to meet its original shipping estimate,” Think Secret reports.

Think Secret reports, “‘Leopard is shaping up to be a more significant release than anyone expected, with much more to come than any of the developer builds have led on,’ one source said.”

“Also scheduled for a June release now are new versions of Apple’s iLife and iWork suites, which will pack extensive Leopard-dependent features. Sources say Apple continues to toy with the idea of bundling one or both suites with the new operating system free of charge in an effort to further play up the extra value and features Mac OS X offers over Microsoft’s new Windows Vista,” Think Secret reports.

  1. If they bundled iLife with Leopard it would be an awsome upgrade. Certainly better than Vista by a very big margin. I’m upgrading no matter what but this would certainly be a bonus if they did so.
    The rumor that June is the month Apple will release Leopard however has been going around for a while already.

  2. You know, I kinda miss MacWrite… Maybe we could get them to breathe some life in it again, quick, capable, efficient – perhect Apple.

    as in all ChrissyOne know is working on the corner – its the only way she can afford to buy a Mac.

  3. Apple is making a huge mistake by releasing 10.5 in June. The product is very unstable at this time and should be released in the Fall of 2007. They did the same thing with 10.4 and 10.5 is much more of a beta product than tiger was at this time.
