CUPERTINO, California—March 21, 2003—Apple® today announced that it has rescheduled its 2003 Worldwide Developers Conference in order to provide developers with a more complete preview release of the next version of Mac® OS X, code named “Panther.” Originally scheduled for May 19-23 in San Jose, the conference will now be held June 23-27 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

“Our annual Worldwide Developers Conference provides our developers an in-depth look at the future of the Mac platform, and giving everyone a preview release of Panther is the best way to do that,” said Ron Okamoto, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “Moving to June ensures that every developer will leave the event with a copy of Panther in their hands.”
