Disappointing news today for those eagerly awaiting the promised October launch of iTunes 11. Apple has just announced that it has had to delay its release until the end of November. Apple talked about the iTunes 11 refresh back in September at the iPhone 5 media event and said that it would be out by the end of October.
According to Yuanta Securities Co., Apple's iPad 2 may not hit the market until June. With the usual caveat of analysts beings only slightly less accurate than monkey's flipping coins, and the clarification that unannounced products can only be "delayed" when it comes to internal time tables, Yuanta cites the reason for the delay as "production bottlenecks" due to Apple making some design changes shortly before the Chinese New Year.
