iPhone Software Kit is Pushed Back
Apple has announced a delay in the release of its software development kit (SDK) for the iPhone, BusinessWeek reported over the weekend. The kit, originally slated for release this month, will now appear in March.
The kit, which will allow outside developers to write their own applications for the popular smart phone device, never had a specific release date other than “by the end of February.” The reporter who broke news of the delay, BusinessWeek’s Arik Hesseldahl, had also broken the original story last year about the existence of the SDK.
More than one recent Apple products has been delayed slightly from previously announced release dates. The Leopard operating system was delayed by over a month last year so that the company’s developers could finish the iPhone, while the recent update to the Apple TV set-top box was delayed by a few weeks, simply because it was not quite finished in time.
