Apple have announced that Leopard OS X 10.5 will go on sale worldwide from October 26 – packed with new features like Time Machine, Spaces and a spruced up interface, with the new Server version of OS X on sale the same day.
In just nine days, Apple’s latest evolution of the OS X 10 platform, and their strongest answer to any competing operating system yet, goes on sale to Apple users worldwide.
It's only a rumor for now, but it appears Apple is prepping an official iPhone SDK to be announced in early 2008. Unfortunately, Apple's a bit late to it's own game as hackers cracked the iPhone and iPod Touch up, down, left, and right.
Apple better bring something great to the table with the SDK because, as of right now, developers really don't need it. The theory, according to some analysts, is that Leopard's new capabilities will enable "more robust" features on the iPhone.
Noted hacker HD Moore has publicly posted exploits that take advantage of a vulnerability in Apple's iPhone, the same flaw that's been used by others to unlock the smart phone so it will work on non-AT&T networks.
The vulnerability, which is in the TIFF image-rendering library shared by the iPhone's Safari browser and its e-mail program, as well as by the iTunes software, leaves the iPhone wide open to attack, said Moore, who posted a second, and more robust, exploit today after debuting attack code yesterday.
A blue-and-green birdy is tweeting in our ears, this time telling us that iPhones running 1.1.2 firmware have been spotted in the UK during Apple training sessions.
Is this good news or bad news for the hackers? Well, it's hard to tell but clearly if 1.1.2 is already in use, it hasn't been patched to handle the ongoing exploits that have been filling your RSS feeds the last few hours.
Apple as early as Tuesday is expected to make a Leopard-related announcement to both customers and members of the media, AppleInsider has learned.
After cutting it close near the tail-end of the software's development cycle, the stars appear to have finally fallen into alignment after a Gold Master candidate build surfaced internally this past weekend.
Obviously, an impending announcement would concern availability, as much else about Leopard has been out in the open for quite some time.
