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 the 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.
