Apple Launches iPhone SDK and Announces iPhone 2.0 Software

After much waiting and anticipation from iPhone owners and software developers Apple released the iPhone SDK yesterday. The SDK has all the APIs and other stuff that developers need to build applications for the iPhone.

The SDK also includes an iPhone simulator that runs on the Mac OS for testing applications developed with the SDK. The applications developed with eth SDK will be distributed via a new Apple App Store. "We're excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community with potentially thousands of native applications for iPhone and iPod touch," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "iPhone's enterprise features combined with its revolutionary Multi-Touch user interface and advanced software architecture provide the best user experience and the most advanced software platform ever for a mobile device."

In addition to the SDK, Apple announced iPhone 2.0 software that will ship this June. The 2.0 software will add some significant features that enterprise users need including support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. That will allow for secure over-the-air push email, contacts and calendars in addition to remote wipe and Cisco IPsec VPN access. Also on the list of additions is the ability to view PowerPoint attachments and to delete email and move email in mass.

Apple iPhone To Support Microsoft Exchange

Apple on Thursday unveiled a list of upcoming features, including support for Microsoft Exchange e-mail server, that Apple hopes will convince corporations to adopt the iPhone as the device of choice for mobile workers.

During a news conference at the computer maker's Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, Apple chief executive Steve Jobs promised that the iPhone in its upcoming software update in June would contain "the long list of important features that enterprise customers have told us they need to really drive iPhone use."

The list included the ability to push e-mail and calendar items from servers to the iPhone, synchronize contact lists, and enforce security policies. In addition, the iPhone would support Cisco's client for secure connections to an IP-base virtual private network, and would have technology that a company could use to remotely wipe out data on a lost or stolen iPhone.

One of the most requested corporate features is support for Exchange, Jobs said. To meet the demand, Apple licensed Microsoft's ActiveSync protocol for connecting the iPhone's e-mail client directly to an Exchange server. As a result, e-mail, calendaring and contact items can pushed directly to the smartphone, a feature that Apple demonstrated at the event.

In addition, Apple will be adding Exchange as an e-mail option on the iPhone, along with Yahoo and Google mail and other options. Apple will build software for easy configuration of the device to an Exchange server.

Apple is currently testing the iPhone enterprise features, including the Exchange support, with Nike and Disney, Philip Schiller, Apple's senior VP of worldwide product marketing, said. "It's real and it's exciting," Schiller said of the new technology.

Apple on Thursday released a software development kit in beta that enterprise customers will use for building custom iPhone applications. Starting with the upcoming update of the iPhone software, applications built with the SDK will be able to connect to application programming interfaces within the entire stack of the device's operating system.

Apple is working with corporate customers on the software they'll use to distribute applications to iPhone-carrying workers. In addition, the company plans to offer technology that'll make it relatively easy to move user profiles from Research In Motion's BlackBerry, likely to be Apple's biggest competitor, to the iPhone.

Thunderbird 3.0 to begin ascent next month

The Thunderbird development community aims to release the first alpha of Thunderbird 3 next month. Plans began to take shape yesterday during the very first Thunderbird weekly status call meeting, at which developers discussed potential features and other issues of relevance.

Early plans for Thunderbird 3 first emerged last month when the Mozilla Foundation announced the official launch of Mozilla Messaging, a new subsidiary that will focus on communication software. Although the Mozilla Messaging team is still getting situated in its new nest in Vancouver, CEO David Ascher has already jumped into action. He announced the status call meeting in a blog entry on Monday, and expressed interest in taking the first steps towards the Thunderbird 3 alpha.

"Tomorrow at 9:30 AM PST (1730 UTC) is the first weekly status call for Thunderbird (well, first that I know of)," wrote Ascher on Monday. "It'll be chaotic and unstructured I'm sure, but we'll figure it out over the next few weeks. One of the big topics for discussion will be how to structure the work towards our first alpha of 3.0, which won't be feature complete by any means, but should be a good first step towards releasing a stable Thunderbird build."
