Photos for Mac goes from “early 2015” to “available at a later date”

Remember the desktop Photos app that Apple announced alongside Yosemite last year? We were promised an “early 2015″ launch, but Apple has how taken down all of the Photos teaser pages from its website. Don’t worry, though; that doesn’t mean it’s no longer coming.

Apple then gave us a vague new shipping date: “early 2015.” However, the updated wording in this support docs now lists the app as being “available at a later date.”

That’s hardly a mistake: all references to the software have been systematically removed from Apple’s website as well, including every single mention on a page dedicated to iCloud Photos and on another one detailing Continuity.

It’s unclear whether the new delay has anything to do with the Apple Watch arriving in April, another product the company originally listed as coming in ”early 2015.”

In fact, Cook’s own comment regarding the Watch release date may help shed light on the vague Photos for Mac release date.

“What we were saying with ‘early 2015,’ we’re thinking ‘early’ is the first four months of the year, ‘mid’ is the middle four months, and ‘late’ is the last four months,” he said.

But at least we know it is still coming. It’s unclear why Apple removed the Photos teasers from its site — perhaps too many users were asking why it wasn’t included in Yosemite — but it definitely hasn’t been dropped.
