Apple having difficulties with iPhone development?

Updated

According to various reports following Apple’s announcement of a delay for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Apple is having troubles with the development of the iPhone, possibly pushing back the device’s launch by several weeks. “We’re hearing it’s mostly an issue with the complexity of the device, and that all the component suppliers are making their deliveries on time,” says Jagdish Rebello, an iSuppli analyst. Although Apple’s statement made it clear it still plans to ship the iPhone in “late June”, this contradicts previous reports form AT&T (formerly Cingular) stating the device had a target release date of June 11, during Apple’s WWDC conference.
