Insiders from apple said that apple iPhone release date maybe delay to the end of June or early July. While people like AT&T’s COO and Apple themselves continue to maintain that the iPhone is still on track for June, everyone is still skeptical that something else is probably brewing behind closed doors. After all, Apple told us that Leopard was on track for Spring just a couple weeks before they announced that it was being pushed ’till October, and some sources have told Ars that they were made aware of the October date by Apple long before the rest of the world knew.That information is confirmed once again by a close source this morning, and he has some not-so-great news about that pesky iPhone delay rumor. He Who Shall Not Be Named™ has told us, “Apple knew two months ago that Leopard was going to be delayed since all of the key engineers are now in Taipei.” Somebody from Foxconn/Hon Hai that “it does not look feasible that Apple will be able to ship units out in May to make the iPhone shipping date in the US (June),expect units to trickle by end of June or early July."It is doubtful they will have enough units on hand to meet the demand.” Insiders said The issue with the iPhone is not the battery, but the software Q/A and OS-related issues.
