Apple Seeds iPhone SDK 3.1 To Developers

Today Apple began pushing out iPhone Software Development Kit 3.1 to developers of the iPhone platform. The new SDK has several new features that should make it easier for developers to create applications for the iPhone. The biggest new development is that the MMS feature is automatically turned on in 3.1.

Today Apple began pushing out iPhone Software Development Kit 3.1 to developers of the iPhone platform. The new SDK has several new features that should make it easier for developers to create applications for the iPhone. The biggest new development is that the MMS feature is automatically turned on in 3.1.Developers are still rifling through the code to determine exactly what the new SDK for the iPhone contains. The best nugget to be unearthed so far is that the MMS feature -- which will allow iPhone users to send and receive picture, video and video messages -- is automatically powered up. That doesn't mean MMS will work, mind you, but it does get us one step closer. Remember, AT&T has to enable the feature, which will likely come via a carrier file upgrade for the iPhone.

Other tools that have been pointed out include: more than a dozen new OpenGL tools for 3D modeling; VideoEditorController API; Video Picker API; and reports of speed boosts.

Some are also indicating that the developer environment offered by the new SDK more closely resembles the iPhone itself.

That's about all that's been discovered so far. If anything else more interesting pops up, we'll be sure to let you know.
