Apple to unveil iPhone SDK plans on March 6

Apple today announced that they will unveil their iPhone SDK plans on March 6, including tools for third-party developers and some “exciting new features” aimed at businesses.

Apple’s invitation to the media reads:

Please join us to learn about the iPhone software roadmap, including the iPhone SDK and some exciting new enterprise features.

MacDailyNews Note: Back in October, Apple CEO Steve Jobs posted an open letter that stated in part, “Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers’ hands in February.” For those keeping score, if the iPhone SDK is delivered on March 6 (not just discussed along with an announcement of a later release date), Jobs was off by six days.

  1. “less than a week isn’t so bad of a delay…!”

    Color me pessimistic, but they may just be announcing the “roadmap.” It doesn’t mean that they’ll actually be handing out the SDK that day. Steve gets up on stage and talks about the SDK and then says, “…and it’ll be available in June.”

    Anyway, I’m just patiently waiting for it. Hope they give me access to bluetooth…

  2. One week late. Oh no the world is going to end!

    The quaking iPhone wannabe makes just got another free week to work on their crappy products. Doesn’t matter really, they will all scramble to Windows Mobile since catch up time is now impossible and Microsoft is more than happy to give them Windows Mobile to power their devices. Good news for iPhone users.

  3. You’re either on time or late.

    After all these months, it’s quite embarrassing for Apple to have missed the mark by six days.

    Once again, Apple is late. Is anyone keeping track of how many times this has happened? Or do you just assume at this point that being late is part of their business plan.

    And where is Time Capsule?! Not even a peep? Really??
