MacTech Article: The iPhone SDK Overview
The iPhone SDK: Overview and Initial Reactions
On March 6, 2008, Apple outlined the future of the iPhone. Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President of World Wide Product Marketing, presented new and upcoming enterprise features. Scott Forstall gave us a peek into the much-anticipated iPhone Software Development Kit, and Apple CEO Steve Jobs described the iTunes Application Store. All of the features will be included in the iPhone 2.0 update, expected in late June. While a free update for the iPhone, iPod Touch owners will have to pay for it. The cost has not yet been announced. Meanwhile, beta programs are available for both the iPhone SDK and the enterprise features. Apple hopes to get as much feedback as possible before the 2.0 update goes live, so some of the details discussed below might change before the actual release.
