The redesign and reconfiguration of
iReview is “taking a little longer than expected”, sources tell MacCentral, as
Apple is adding additional international support as announced briefly by CEO Steve Jobs yesterday.
“Things are taking a little longer than expected,” an unidentified source close to the projects told MacCentral Thursday. “These things take time and it’s expected things will be back up soon.”
When asked for a more exact time frame for return of both services, the source could not be specific.
Jobs announced during his
Tokyo Macworld Expo keynote address that iTools would now be available in Japanese. Previously, the service was only available in an English version.
The iReview tab has been removed from the
Apple home page, but the iTools tab remains. Both pages have posted notices advising users the services are temporarily down for “scheduled maintenance.”
