Happy WWDC 2011 Monday! Apple CEO Steve Jobs took the stage at Moscone West in San Francisco this morning to kick off the annual Worldwide Developers Conference 2011 to a huge throng of developers and media ready to hear about Apple’s next-generation software.
As Apple took some flack over the past week in regard to the iOS tracking issue, today the company addressed the issue as we brought it to you earlier. But the company decided to do the PR announcement one better by also bringing out CEO Steve Jobs and senior vice presidents Phil Schiller and Scott Forstall to address the issue in an interview. They also discussed what took so darn long for the white iPhone 4.
By now, April 28 is probably Apple’s worst-kept secret since Gizmodo got their hands on the original prototype this time last year -- but for the handful of people still waiting for it, the white iPhone 4 is officially arriving in stores on Thursday.
Did Phil Schiller tell a little white lie about a little white iPhone being on track for this spring? In an ominous sign of the troubled handset’s future, Apple’s online store went down for maintenance at midnight last night and came back up with the white iPhone 4 removed entirely.
It’s hard to imagine after all this time that anyone is actually still holding out for the fabled white iPhone 4, but assuming it’s true, both of you guys or gals will be happy to hear that the mythical device is still on track for a spring release.
It’s pretty much a given that Apple executives are using their own products, including the iPhone. If you’ve ever wondered what apps they might have installed, you can wonder no more — at least in Phil Schiller’s case.
