We all know that Apple does a pretty good job of keeping their official documents out of the public’s hands, and while plenty of industry insiders can offer their opinions on what may or may not happen, they are just that: opinions and personal conjecture. Certainly, there are plenty of important goodies floating around the FCC with an Apple logo on it that Cupertino doesn’t want you to know about just yet. As such, Apple has asked the FCC to keep anything remotely related to the iPhone under wraps until June 15. Interestingly, this letter is dated October 12, 2006.
That would partially explain why we couldn’t dig up iPhone FCC docs prior to the MacWorld keynote, and why we still can’t find much on the FCC site regarding Apple’s freshman foray into the cell phone world. One thing that we should note, however, is that the June 15th date mentioned in the letter is the last day of WWDC. Could this mean that the Apple iPhone is set to launch on that day, following another grandiose speech by Steve Jobs? You know, like how he did with the “completely remastered” iPod nano?
