It’s been a big week for Apple. During the first day of the Word Wide Developers Conference yesterday, the mighty Mac-sters revealed a new iPhone, a new MacBook and new details about its Snow Leopard OS update (For an in-depth look, check out TheFeed's WWDC first day round up).
Really, the only thing missing was CEO Steve Jobs and his mystical black turtleneck. However, it seems that Apple will be seeing him soon enough, as the company has now confirmed that Jobs will be returning to his old gig by the end of this month.
When Jobs stepped down back in January due to health issues, he had said that he planned to return to the company in June. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that sources at Apple had revealed that Jobs was on track to return at that time, but as the Telegraph reports, it wasn’t until today that those speculations were confirmed by Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing and WWDC keynote speaker Phil Schiller.
Given that Jobs has apparently been involved in most of Apple’s current projects during his hiatus, it should be a fairly smooth transition once he returns in earnest. Maybe he can convince the company to put some pressure on AT&T to give iPhone users MMS and tethering support when the OS 3.0 launches next week. Am I right, people?
