iLife and iWork ’07: Coming soon?

Posted on 08/07/2019 | in 杭州夜生活 | by

If (like most of us) you can tell time, you might have noticed that 2007 is almost three weeks old now and yet there's no sign of the eponymous personal or professional productivity suites from Apple. Expected to be unveiled (or at least announced) at Macworld Expo last week, it seems this year's upgrades to iLife and iWork aren't quite ready to come out of the oven.HangZhou Night Net

Then there's the impending release of Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard," and here the big news to come out of MWSF was—nothing? What gives, guys?

Remain calm, all is well, says Apple. While listening in on yesterday's earnings conference call, we unearthed two tidbits of news regarding both of these new ventures.

Numero uno: What's up with Leopard?

Continue to plan to ship Leopard in the Spring. We've got a lot of people working on it.

Numero dos: iLife. Give it to us.

We don't announce future products, but… stay tuned.

One might assume the pinpoint, up-to-the-second iLife release schedule mentioned above would also apply to its business-oriented cousin, iWork. There's some mild speculation that there may be features of iLife/iWork '07 that will in fact require Leopard, perhaps involving ties to Time Machine (you may want to hit mute before following that link) or other new technologies in the OS. This is entirely possible, of course, but if that's the case, it also means that the suites won't be available for a notable portion of 2007. Will there be a backlash if new and improved 2008 versions ship half a year after the 2007 models?

There are also half-hearted rumors abound of another Apple event later this month that's possibly timed to coincide with Microsoft's unveiling of the consumer versions of Vista at the end of January. The next significant milestone in Apple's 30th-anniversary year could be March 24, six years to the day of the release of Mac OS X 10.0. Or how about April 1, anniversary of the company's incorporation? Then there's this year's NAB conference, the scene of past Apple product introductions starting on April 14. Will we see the 2007 application/OS lineup before then?
