    If you go to wallpapers in 4.0, the date on the preview is Sunday July 4 (which must be 2010).
    Significance?

    I doubt there's any significance in that probably just a random date

    You're new to Apple, aren't you?

    Where did I say the date would be a product release date?

    And 9:42 was the time they expected the iPhone to be revealed at the first iPhone keynote. Thank you and good day.

    Although you have a point, I don't think Apple would launch a product on a Sunday. Sunday's usually a day of rest/religion for Americans - so getting in line for a smartphone wouldn't be priority.

    Also, the original iCal (that shipped with Tiger) had a random date for the icon I believe.

    Again, nowhere did I say that it would be the release date of a product.

    iCal's icon on Tiger says July 17th - the date iCal was announced in 2002.

    The iCal icon on WWDC '09 banners said June 19th, which ended up being the day the iPhone 3GS went on sale.

    Gotcha. But with "significance" what else could you have meant? Either they would announce or launch a product to have significance right?

    Apple must be laughing their rear ends off, when they see posts like this. :)

    July 4th? Hmm..I don't see any reason why that date would be significant to people in the US. I'll get back to you if I can figure it out.

    If you agree that it doesn't suggest an announcement or release date -- which, as others have pointed out, seem very unlikely for a Sunday -- then what significance do you think it might have? You must have had some reason for posting this...

    But why is independence day significant? Is there a hidden message there? Hmm...

    Nope, it's not hidden. It's the day we gained our independence. ;)

    Totally. Apple is going to fund Independence Day 2 starring Will Smith.

    Apple would never release anything on the 4th of July. The kings of marketing would never ever make such a blunder.

    So you have nothing to offer, you just have a feeling it must somehow be significant? This isn't even speculation, it's a plea for speculation. What a waste of a thread.

    I just looked at my work calendar and July 4th is highlighted as well. I wonder if my company has some inside information about Apple?

    If they announce it on July 4, that MUST be the significance!
