iOS 7 to Ship 'On Time' as OS X Engineers Pitch In




Renowned Apple journalist Jim Dalrymple has confirmed earlier reports that Apple has pulled engineers off OS X 10.9 in order to finish iOS 7 on time with a one word post:
Quote:
Yep.

A report from AllThingsD earlier today said that Apple was in a repeat of the scenario from 2007 wherein the company pulled engineers off the development of OS X Leopard to work on the first iPhone.

Apple sources told ATD that it's "not as much of a fire drill" and that iOS 7 "will ship on time". Apple hasn't actually announced a ship date for iOS 7, so "on time" is subjective at this point. However, Bloomberg said earlier today that the public launch of the software was on schedule for "as soon as September".

Just as an unannounced product can't be late or delayed, it also can't be on time.

Also, iOS 9 is on time at this point.

It would sure be nice if in return iOS engineers pitched in getting OS X 10.9 out.

How late will 10.9 be now? Will we see it in 2013?

We don't want iOS 7 "on time" if the consequence is that OS X 10.9 will be "incomplete".

OS X is in need of the same revamp as iOS is!

Nothing has been announced. How the hell are we talking about it being late yet. This speculation is so ridiculous.

Slash is wearing a Chang beer shirt. I happen to also own a Chang beer shirt. I'm gonna go grab a guitar. I'll report back if there are any other similarities between us.

Yawn

In another hour we'll get another post on how 100 new features had to be stripped out to make sure iOS7 is on time. All of this back and forth it's late, it's not late, it's late...etc is just nonsense. Until something official comes out this is all a waste of time.

I'm not sure I get the relevance of Slash, or is that the only available picture of Dalrymple?

I'm expecting iOS 7 to be a much bigger change from iOS 6 than any of the incremental changes that have gone before. Maybe not in features, but definitely in user experience. It HAS to take a step up to fend off Android. But I have faith in Jony - this will tell us if he has the same look 'n feel magic touch with software that he does with hardware...

Jim is about as controlled of a leak as you can get, unlike all of the speculation the so-called "experts" put out.

Too bad Apple doesn't have the cash to hire additional engineers.

(yes, I understand it takes time to get new employees up to speed and productive, so it wouldn't help right now; but they've had years to work out this particular issue)

Gah, beaten by 2 minutes.

Ah poop, once again didn't read the article and concentrated more on making a snide remark. Sorry

It's not always about money. You can not just hire 100 people off the street, even if they have an engineering degree. Even if enough qualified people were available (maybe there are, maybe not), it takes a while to fit them in and get them to do what you want to do. In addition there is often a Visa problem when the most qualified candidates are not american citizens.
